I really enjoyed my time staying at the Billabong. Bed was comfortable and the food was good at a reasonable price. A special mention to the lady manager there who was so lovely to us, along with the rest of the staff. Will be back again.

Pair of oldie travellers - we loved our time here, and stayed 5 nights. Our 1st floor room overlooked the pool, and was spacious with great air con and fan.
Added bonus, we had complimentary bottle of wine for booking direct online.
Free wi-fi (not extra as stated in The Lonely Planet guide for Cambodia.)
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
Everyone of them were very kind and friendly and happy to make recommendations for us. e.g. Romdeng restaurant – (go for at least one meal)
There are tuk tuks outside that look after you if needed.
Thank you so much to everyone at Billabong!

We are a family of four with teenagers. Loved this hotel, huge family room, divine shower and fantastic pool area. Happy hour and cocktails were a bonus. Most of all, the staff here were so nice, couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. I wish we had stayed longer, but will be back next time.

Lovely place to stay, rooms are very clean. I met two friends in Phnom Penh and we shared a room with a double bed and two singles. The room was very spacious, with a table, a sofa and a tea/coffee making area. The bathroom was also large with two sinks and a huge shower which had a rainfall shower head and a normal one.

The breakfast buffet was good and the staff always put out fresh food for us when the trays were running low. The hotel does not serve dinner, only breakfast and lunch, but this isn't too bad as there's many restaurants and bars close by.

Pool area is lovely with plenty of trees and shade if you want it. Big pool which we often had to ourselves.

Staff seemed lovely, overall a nice place to stay.

Biggest and best pool so far! The family room was massive with so much space to do activities. We had a great stay here. The TV had lots of english channels. The breakfast was great with lots of different choices. We ordered lunch by the pool and cocktails, which was really nice! great smoothies! I recommend this place.

Room Tip: Choose a family room for a little bit extra and you will get a MASSIVE room!

We stayed 2 nights in July as a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children), and the family room was great. It was clean and spacious, and had 5 beds.
The kids loved the pool.
The breakfast, whilst not vast, was good.
Overall a very good mid range option for families.
