We just spent 3 nights at this hotel and it was superb.
We were collected from the airport by a member of staff and taken to the hotel that is only a short drive away. The check-in was very smooth and we were given a refreshing drink and a scarf while we were waiting. A nice touch was that they sound a gong when you arrive so that the reception staff are ready for you.
The room was large and nicely furnished in what I would call a colonial style. Fresh fruit was provided daily and the standard of cleanliness was high. The room had a minibar and the prices were reasonable although the selection could be improved.
Our deal included a tour of the Angkor temples with our own English speaking guide and a driver. This was good as the ticket price for the temples is 20USD and so with the guide costs this was a good thing to have included. Also included was a Khmer meal in the hotel's Khmer restaurant. This was very nice but the eating in the restaurant was "traditional" style, I.e. you sit on the floor - not good for stiff, old European joints.
The hotel bar was good and I can recommend the Mojitos!
My wife used the spa and she said the experience was very good.
In the three days that we were there, for the first two I didn't have a hot shower. On the third day my wife told me that this was because the labelling on the shower control was reversed so I was actually selecting cold instead of hot! Our room was 275 so perhaps the hotel could sort this.
In the evening the hotel run a free shuttle bus into the area of town known as Pub Street where there are dozens of restaurants that offer good, reasonably priced food. We preferred to take a tuk-tuk for a few dollars.
The hotel was very quiet during our stay as it is the low season. There are also lots of high end hotels competing for the limited number of visitors so good deals are available.
We were on a B&B deal and the breakfast was superb with an enormous range of options from Europe and Asia.
My only criticism would be that the hotel is a few miles out of the town centre. This is only a short tuk-tuk ride away but my wife and I like to have a walk around and there wasn't anything near the hotel to walk to.
All in all a very nice stay was enjoyed by us and this was greatly helped by the very friendly staff.
