We had a VIP double room booked. We arrived (free pick-up from the bus station) and couldn't believe how opulent and impressive this place was. Our room was fabulous. The pool was superb with a nice relaxation area right next to it. There was an elevator which made lugging our big bags up really easy. Breakfast (extra) was quite good. We were somewhat disappointed that the restaurant was closed in the evenings so we had to go elsewhere for our dinners but found a couple of gems nearby (Gecko Cafe, Nary Kitchen). We stayed 3 nights and had one tuk tuk driver for all our tours. He picked us up at the bus station initially (free), a return trip to the circus with 2 1/2 hour wait ($5), took us on a full day tour of the south of Battambang (8.30 am - 7.15 pm) - for $15 (we gave him $20), a half day tour of the north of Battambang (8.30 am - 1.00 pm) for $10 and an early morning transfer to the boat station ($5). We really enjoyed our time in Battambang thanks mainly to Mr Jack, one of the tuk tuk drivers who work in with Seng Hout. We had a good long chat with Mr Seng (the owner) who has a school behind the hotel and has lots to tell about it, but even more about his growing up in Khmer Rouge times. Mr Jack had plenty to show us and tell us too.
Battambang - must visit.
Seng Hout - great hotel choice.
Mr Jack - top tuk tuk man.
Nary Kitchen Cooking School - don't miss it
Battambang to Siem Reap by boat (or SR - BB) - excellent
