After a long and interesting day’s drive we were glad to step into the cool elegance of the reception area for our warm welcome.
There were always tuk-tuks available to take us to eat or explore Phnom Penh, and I learnt to carry a map and show the driver that I knew where I wanted to go and how to get there to save a long and circuitous route being taken!
The hotel was in a pleasant area, with a smart street at the end of the block where we understood the chief of police had a house, so we felt completely safe walking around there.
We had a room in the new wing, which might not have been characterful though certainly stylish, and in it we enjoyed probably the best lighting we have ever had in a hotel. We were on the top floor, so had a lovely view from our balcony of the monastery next door and the Independence Monument rising above the treetops as well as the attractive old part of the hotel and its leafy and refreshing pool area. The bathroom was great with a shower almost of swimming pool size, and the towels were fine. The bed was big and comfortable.
There were freshly-cooked items available for breakfast, but we learnt to be careful with the croissants - they could be yesterday’s! I didn’t like the breakfast coffee, but it was fine at other times of the day. We ate lunch and dinner at some stage during our stay, and enjoyed the food particularly the ceviche of sea bass.
We were very well treated, and were most impressed by the kindness we saw when we had a late check-out. We were unable to keep our room as it had been booked, but we were given a room in the nether regions of the original villa where we were able to leave our suitcases and shower and change before leaving for the airport. We couldn’t have asked for more.
