Myself and my daughter had a wonderful stay at Shirley's in November of 2013. The breakfast was perfectly fine with eggs and fresh juice and was served by Mohammed who could not do enough for us. The room was large and spotlessly clean, the beds were comfortable and we had a large balcony with a table and chairs which we... More

We did not actually stay at Shirley's but one of the other apartments they access (Green Villas). The first night was poor as although the room was large it was not very clean and the beds were terrible. However complaining gave us an upstairs room which was great with a fridge and large cleanroom and balcony. Beds had foam mattresses... More

We can't praise our stay at Shirley's enough and are disappointed to read the ungrateful reviews from other guests! Shirley met us with a warm welcome and it was a pleasure to see her smiling face and Sambath her son and Mohammed (generally very useful chap to have around) every day! Our room was most importantly spotlessly clean! Also spacious... More

I booked this hotel after reading reviews from tripadvisor and booked through cleartrip almost 2 months before my travel. I was aware of its rating but compramised myself for the budget. Only reason for booking was that it was close to Leela bus stop so it would be easier for commuting around. After a week long journey across various places... More

If you are a budget traveller then it is OK to stay here for a night or two. The owner Mr. Sambath is running quiet a business like many people there. Probably the guest who checked out before us left fish in the refrigerator so room was stinking. But they had it cleaned quickly. The owner is well informed and... More

Stayed 4 days in the middle of Febr. 2013 without any complaints. Personally collected by Shirley in the morning. She also joined me to the Airport when I left. Had a huge clean room with double bed, big toilet, shower, ceiling fan, refrigerator and balcony for a fair price compared with many of the other places in the area. Almost... More
