Before we start I will acknowledge that we had friends who had managed The Rivergarden whilst the owners were away. That is why we stayed there. If you want true a high rise resort with gated style living this is not the place for you. If you want an oasis in the city with tropical trees and palms, water features,... More

This was my third stay at RG. The upstairs Khmer cottage was like a tree house with mod cons. The staff bend over backwards to please and Deb is a wealth of information on local matters. We did the Cooks in Tuk Tuks activity and I was thrilled to learn the cooking methods and the market tour was exciting and... More

We booked this hotel based on The Guardian's review of best 10 places in Siem Reap and I would say it is an OK hotel based on my experience (I have been working in the travel industry for 16 years) but not as special as mentionned.

Thank you Sandra for sharing your feedback, always very useful indeed. We are pleased to hear you experienced our lovely garden, spacious room and amazing breakfast (did you try our restaurant or bakery too?). We love the area as its close to the center, but also a bit like a hidden spot. You are right that the pool can be... More

We stayed for 7 days with friends and 2 children and couldn't recommend the RiverGarden more! All service was exceptional - from booking, to transfers to and from the airport, reception, the restaurant, housekeeping and the bar! Our children had a wonderful time exploring the gardens and ponds and loved falling asleep to the sounds of the frogs! And the... More

We stayed here for 4 days so we could see the temples and were very lucky with our choice. If you decide to cycle to Angkor Wat or Srah Srang (White bike hire is 2 dollars a day, and to my mind cycling is the the best way to see the temples). For a sunrise, this is the place to... More

We loved our stay at the River Garden. We ended up spending our entire 10 days here as it was such a warm friendly serene place. The restaurant is great. Lovely breakfasts. Killer cocktails.
