“Nice hotel! Nice price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

You'd never find something like this for anywhere near the price in the States!
This place is a no brainer. Nice, comfortable modern rooms. Very clean! Good location.
The pool was an excellent bonus!
The staff were very friendly.
The owner, "V", was very friendly and very helpful.

overall the place is very good value for money.

had problem with aircon so had to change room, no kettle in room?

had dinner one night but burger meat was very soft, like some sort of meat pattie mixed with bread tasted a bit cheap and a bit small not the cheapest at $4 each for here on the higher price side.

would probably not eat there again....shame

Room Tip: near the back away from pool as can get noisy

Although I arrived late and one day before my reservation date, the female owner, V..... was very helpful and gave me a free upgrade for her last room for the night.
The staff must have had a good training as they seems more switched on and they speak better english than most others in town.
The hotel really shows an attention for details from the new owners, is nicely decorated and the restaurant prices are on par with other decent restaurants.
Low season prices at U$32.00 without B/F is not cheap by local standard but reasonable for what you get. I didn't want a large resort or a dump by the beach with the noisy bars.
This hotel is cute and well organized, located along the main drag behind the beach. So you can walk to the night life attractions without having to put up with the noice.
I wouldn't spend more than a couple of days in Sihanookville but if you do so the Coolabath Hotel is the place.

The staff were so friendly and helpful and the new owners are dedicated to a good service too.

Very clean and comfortable, great location. Breakfast not included but the breakfasts offered at the hotel restaurant are delicious and cheap. Good value for money. Relaxing atmosphere by the pool. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Me and some friends went on a tour around South East Asia and this was by a long way the best hotel we stayed in. The rooms were large, very modern and clean. the pool was small but they have made the best use of the space they have. The bar area was good with live music on a couple of nights a week and a good pool table which seems to be hard to come by in Cambodia. Location was good, just 200 meters or so from the beach and JJ's bar! The food in the hotel was very good especially the seafood even by S.E Asian standards! If staying in Sihanoukville you must eat at one of the BBQ's on the beach at night.

Stay here 7 nights at the end of July 2012. Danny the Manager made us welcome from the start. Congratulation again on the new baby. Hotel is a real bargain and worth higher star rating. As mentioned in a lot of the other reviews the food is some of the best in town. Everything we tried we liked. Danny is the real star at this hotel and his Sunday Lunch is absolutely amazing with real gravy and yorkshire puddings. Room was clean and tidy. Great shower. Pool clean and well maintained. Only downside, we would have liked to talk to Danny a bit more as he's a great chap but understandably he had to put family first. We would go back without a thought again and again. Main tip for out and about, do not promote buying goods from children, if they make money they don't go to school. Sad but very true. Also monday night at hotel is Quiz night and is a great laugh. Thanks to everyone at coolabah.
