“excellent location”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

This hotel is good value for money, the stairs are a bit steep and no lift. The manager Danny is a good helpful guy. We did experience a bit of night time noise with young people larking round the swimming pool in the middle of the night, but these things do happen in holiday hotels. The place is keep clean and has most facilities you would need.

Room Tip: The corner room with their own veranda look the best but maybe they are higher priced.

In thsi Hotel we did not sleep, but we just had dinner. Food is French cousine with a bit flavor of Cambodia. A very good combination mixed fish. The wine was excellent French. The price is very resonable.

My boyfriend & I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The rooms are the standard you would expect for what you pay. Clean enough and well appointed. The AC is really good. What really makes the Coolabah special is the amazing food! We ate at the hotel more than we would usually do if staying at any hotel. The drink is reasonably priced for the area and the fruit cocktails are beautiful. Wifi is free & reliable. I was able to do a book swap at the reception too. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

We have stayed here a couple of times, before and after our trip to the islands. Danny, the front of house guy is fantastic and will give brilliant unbiased advice on all manor of places to visit whilst staying, buses, day trips etc.
The room was scrubbed to within an inch of its before we headed in, the cleaner was even meticulously cleaning the window frames and table legs!!
The food has been great....maybe lacking a bit Khmer influence, but really well executed. You can also have a decent coffee!!!
It's in a great location too, just enough breathing space and only a 3 min walk to the beach.

Thoroughly recommended!!

not a bad choice in snooky, room are modern if a little musty and the water supply erratic, on the plus side breakfast was very good and included in the price and the hotels position is good with plenty of restaurants around and nightlife and only a few minutes to the beach.

We stayed in the Coolabah Hotel for 5 nights and had a great time. The hotel ls very well managed by Danny and he and his staff are always happy and so very helpful and attentive. The hotel rooms are a good size and are very comfortable. The bathrooms has a great shower with never ending hot water. We landed up eating here most of the time as the food was excellent too as was the choice of wines. We thought the hotel, & restaurant food & wine was very well priced. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again if we do come back that way. The swimming pool was great too - especially after a day out on a long trip
Thanks Danny and all your lovely staff for making our too short stay so very enjoyable.

Room Tip: We think all the rooms are very good. We only had a standard room which as just a few steps from the...

This is our second stay at the Coolabah as we have stayed here in December 2011 and Jan 2013.
Not often you can say a hotel has actually upped their game and gotten even better but this is the case at this one. The room we have stayed in both times is the top private balcony room with their own pretty special view of serendipity bay just perfect.
The room has had a spruce up with new furniture curtains and a clean spacious feel.
The bathroom was spotless both times with no mould and really clean not common in Asia as I have stayed in 5 star resorts with not as clean a bathroom. The room has all the mod cons cable TV, fridge, safe and really nice bedding. The restaurant is excellent and worth at least dinner in your stay the Khmer chicken curry is the best I have tried in my 2 trips to Cambodia.
I also want to say that the staff at the hotel are all great friendly and really make the hotel a special place. We love Sihanouk-ville and cant believe the bad reviews it recieves for a relaxing beach side holiday with warm people and a town with many great beaches you really need to visit and make your own mind up. I can recommend both the hotel and the location for a relaxing beach side holiday.

Room Tip: Pay a bit more to get the top balcony rooms with a view of the bay.
