I stayed at the Bachhus over the new year period and was very unimpressed. As mentioned in other reviews, my room really needed a good clean, particularly the bathroom which was pretty awful. The sheets and towels needed to be replaced - both were old and stained and I was reluctant to use them. Yes, this guesthouse is cheap, but I stayed in similar priced places in Cambodia that were of an extremely high standard. To make matters worse, I had to spend a lot of time in my room due to a bad bout of food poisoning (although that had nothing to do with Bacchus). On my last night there I was told I had to move rooms as Dave needed to shuffle people around. Not up to arguing, I agreed - only to be put in a room that was in an even worse state than the first one - the cistern lid was missing from the toilet, the sink pipes leaked onto the floor when the taps were turned on and there was cold water only. Yes, I could have (and probably should have!) complained, but I was feeling lousy and I knew that I wouldn't be able to find an alternative place to stay at that time of year. I would highly recommend shopping around and finding a guesthouse that maintains a higher standard of cleanliness.
