We have just returned from 20 days traveling around Cambodia. We stayed at the Phka for two nights to rest after 'templing' at Siem Reap. We may have been unlucky with timing, as we did not get the staff service that other reviewers mention Just one of the family.Just one of the family was present and he appeared to be trying to run the place single handed - he was there from daybreak to bedtime and was shattered. We felt the other staff were taking advantage - they were often seen watching tv or sleeping in the bar area whilst guests were using the pool the pool ....full of litter and fallen leaves. The rooms were adequate but very shabby; the whole place needs a thorough overhaul, and staff need training as to attitude towards guests (as well as to the management). As said we may just have been unlucky - but this was the weakest of all the places we stayed throughout our stay in Cambodia. The saving grace was the helpfulness of the family member present who was as helpful as can been under difficult circumstances. He moved us without question when the aircon failed, despite the fact we were moving out the following day.
If you visit Battambang, make sure you visit the circus.....just brilliant and supporting a worthy cause
