After a night in a dilapidated guesthouse, we were delighted to find Phanyro and even happier to get a room during the very busy River Festival holiday. The room was clean and spacious, with a TV, towels, blankets and complimentary drinking water. Even better, the bathroom had warm water, which cannot always be assumed in Cambodian guesthouses.
The bungalows were set in a nicely landscaped area, and the main road of Sen Monorom was a five minute walk away, useful for food and evening beers. The location was quiet with natural views across a valley from the back our our bungalow. The owner spoke good English and was very keen to emphasise that if we had any problems, we should let him know. However, we didn't have any problems during our stay and have since recommended this place to quite a few friends.
While we were staying (River Festival holiday), this place was very popular with Khmer families, which makes a nice change from backpacker central. Sometimes even backpackers like to get away from it all! May not be the best choice if you are on your own, but perfect for couples or groups of friends.
Take a torch if you are going to return at night, as the road from Sen Monorom's main street is a little dark - it's the countryside!
