A new up-and-comer on the Battambang scene, The Sanctuary is an oasis of calm a mere two minutes drive from the centre of Battambang. A handful of individual, private, beautifully-furnished villas are set around a pool, each will all the mod cons you could want. When we were there the hotel had only been open a few days, but it felt like it had been functioning, and functioning well, for ages.
We were mercifully picked up by the hotel driver from the scrummage that awaits once you disembark the Phnom Penh bus and were met at the Sanctuary by the manager, Dara, who couldn't have been more helpful and efficient. He recommended some outings, sorted us our with transport and an itinerary, and we were on our way.
It was almost a shame to go into Battambang seeing the hotel was of such quality. Added bonuses include free wi-fi, a free half-hour foot massage, free transport in and out of town, great breakfasts with lots of choice, and what looked to be a granite model of a penis by the pool. Serious quality, seriously affordable. You shouldn't look anywhere else (unless it's full, which is very likely).
