A very pretty, authentic looking property that was updated. Rooms very clean, staff lovely and food good. It is charming and feels miles away ( but is in the center of it all) from the hustle and bustle. A unique opportunity to stay in a renovated old mansion with all the essential amenities . I would advise requesting not staying...

We so enjoyed our stay in this delightful old mansion which has been renovated and decorated to a very high standard. It is also beautifully furnished with carefully chosen antiques and lovely silk curtains. Each bedroom is individually furnished. This hotel is an oasis of calm in a bustling city and within easy access of the city centre. The restaurant,...

The interior is simply stunning as you start of in the lobby, which its ceiling goes straight up to the roof of the mansion. The whole place, especially...

I stayed here under rather stressful circumstances as my son was involved in a motorbike accident in rural Cambodia. So the Governor's House was my peaceful sanctuary after long days. I stayed in two different rooms and each was different but with the same high standard of attention to detail, comfort and a heightened aesthetic. The food in the restaurant...
