This is an excellent hotel; the level of service is over the top in every respect: reception, restaurant, spa, maid service, etc. The service in the restaurant stands out in particular, especially when you compare it to other restaurants that we dined at in town, which were not bad, but just not up to the standard here; Ms. Kimloe runs a very tight ship, but service is attentive, not intrusive. The food is excellent and a great value to boot; most entrees are in the USD 5.00 range. Another tremendous value is the spa; a 60-minute massage for only USD 10.00 almost makes you feel guilty, but a generous tip to the girls will assuage any guilty feelings.
All that being said, I wished I could have given the hotel a max score, but the location leaves a lot to be desired, IMHO. Our expectations were high given that we were checking into the number one ranked hotel (TripAdvisor) in Siem Reap, but when the driver pulled up to the entrance on the dusty service road and we took a look around at our surroundings, we started having misgivings. The hotel entrance is sandwiched between a Tuk-Tuk garage on the left and a motor-bike repair shop (?) on the right; definitely a "mixed-use" neighborhood (see pictures). Once we checked in, though, we started feeling more comfortable about our choice, given the warm welcome and wonderful hospitality. In the final analysis, though, I would just say that it is really a shame that this hotel couldn't be picked up and transplanted to the old French Quarter in town; it would be a perfect fit.
