Stayed here for 1.5 nights as part of a lightning visit to Battambang (caught night bus on day 2 but kept the room to have as a base until midnight).
Rooms massive and clean though no lift which could be an issue for the mobility impaired (or lazy). Breakfast pretty good. Location a short distance from central market area - only 5 minutes on foot though, and very close to the buses / boat station.
Not a huge amount to do in the town itself but worth a trip for the bamboo train alone - not used much by locals any more but brilliant fun as you whizz along the bumpy track. Would also recommend going to the circus if timing works. Great food options in town.
A word of warning - the overnight "luxury hotel bus" to Sihanoukville run by Virak Buntham Express Travel (and advertised on poster on reception desk) was HORRIFIC. It is nothing like in the picture - tiny, cramped pods and impossible to sleep. Also no sheets provided contrary to what was stated. It also took around 15 hours via a three hour stopoff in Phnom Penh then transferring to a scruffy local bus. Avoid at all costs. Use someone like Giant Ibis instead and get a bus with reclining seats, not beds.
