After what was a terrible stay in Battambang I nearly cancelled our stay here due to a couple of negative reviews on here.
It was very lucky for me that I didn't.
We arrived after what is quite a long boat journey from Battambang expecting the worse. We had asked the hotel for their free pick up. We docked and disembarked into the melee of tuk tuk drivers scrabbling for business and there upon the hill was a Mr Sopheap a vision in a silk jacket.
He very quickly put us in the air conditioned, leather seated, 4x4 Lexus, we weren't prepared for this.
We arrived at the hotel which is really nice, lovely rooms, good selection at breakfast and excellent efficient friendly staff.
We wanted to eat out and the receptionist called to reserve a private romantic table, when we arrived the waiter had reserved not one but 3 tables for us to choose from.
When we left we decided to use the bus to Phnom Penh, the bus was supposed to pick us up at 7.45am at the hotel, at 7.50am, without a word of complaint from us, Mr Sopheap decided we had waited long enough and got the Lexus out again and drove us to the bus station, all free of charge.
Yes the hotel is a 5 minute tuk tuk ride to the centre but there are always drivers waiting to take you in for a couple of dollars so for me not an issue.
Also yes there is chanting, I did hear it quite early but not at 4.00am and again really not an issue
Book with confidence.
