Yes, I felt a very sincere welcome in this place as I have never been to before.
Ms. Muoy (owner) had graciously introduced herself to us. She is very prompt in answering our emails and her staff has accommodated our requests (especially an early breakfast prior to departing). Literally, they serve with a smile. Arranging for a masseuse from the nearby spa houses are easy, just make the request with whoever is in the Reception.
They arranged tuktuks to pick us up from the bus station (as we were coming from Phnom Penh at night). Most of the staff are those who were educated by the school which was put up by Ms. Muoy for underprivileged kids. She gave us a yearbook of the kids as a memento.
By patronizing the guesthouse, the guests are likewise contributing to the school. In all, the service and place is very good for an affordable price.
P.S. Previously, they accept credit card payments but because of bank charges, I was told that there will cash payments only.
PPS. Guests can use the pool except when it is used for swimming class
