“Loved the Pool”
Reviewed March 6, 2008

The Manor House was such a nice place to stay and we both wished we had been there more than one night! After enduring a dusty bus ride across Cambodia, we checked into the Manor House and immediately hit the pool. The Aussie owner quickly offered us beers and gin and tonics, which hit the spot! He's very chatty, and was very helpful about tips and suggestions on where to go.

The house is only a block from Independence Monument, and though it's that close, you'd never guess because the hotel is so quiet. It's on a side street lined with embassies, and there are wonderful places to drink and eat nearby. Sitting out at the pool and chatting with other travelers was another highlight.

The rooms were large, spacious, had hot water, a big bathroom and an amply stocked fridge and a safe. We were in heaven! Next time I'm in town, I'm definitely checking back into the Manor House.

This guest house was recommended to us by a fellow Australian traveller and we think it was one of the finds of our trip throughout SE Asia. Not only were the staff the friendliest that came across anywhere, they didn't pressure us to book tours and the like through them, they were most helpful when it came to making onward travel arrangements, and would go out of there way making phone calls and such to ensure you were plans were confirmed.

The place itself is really nice. Well laid out, with a swimming pool, good breakfast (including Vegemite - fellow Australian travellers), and even the smaller of the rooms really nice and tastefully decorated. See pics attached. Internet is a little on the slow side though as it is via satellite.

The place is very secure with high fences and locked gate, and in a quiet street only 10 minutes walk to the riverside and even closer to some of the tourist sites. Very handy (only minutes) to many of the restaurants that come highly recommended by the Lonely Planet in the area of the Independence Monument.

I cannot speak highly enough about the staff - they are all like family making it feel very much like a home away from home and like you have known them for a long time.

We are aware of the slow internet problems, as are most places in this city. It is a constant battle to access reliable and fast internet but hopefully that will change once promised upgraded connections to Vietnam are in place.
