Returning here was like returning home. Staying here is like staying at home, or for someone like me with a somewhat dysfunctional family it's maybe better than staying at home haha...
Everything I wrote in my first review is still valid. The rooms are very comfortable, the people are really friendly, being around volunteers from the Ponheary Ly Foundation is inspiring and I'm telling you - Wat Bo is the place to stay. It beats being near Pub Street by a long shot.
Since last year they have opened a breakfast facility with a great a la carte breakfast menu which is available earlier than any other place I know. The omelette is great, the french toast is perfect, the pancakes are wonderful, the fruit is tasty, the coffee is good and the lime juice is delish. Sorry, didn't have the muesli so can't comment on that but I'll bet its great also.
I really don't want to come across as naively pollyannish so I've been cracking my head to come up with something where there's room for improvement or some constructive criticism. And I think I have something in the form of a word of advice for future guests - The place feels so much like home that I frequently had to walk downstairs again because I kept forgetting to pick up my key when I came in. :)
