Probably good value for money but I only stayed one place. I did look and other guest houses but they all seemed dirty. Restaurants in this town also looked dirty.

Coolabah was fairly clean but the furnishings were a bit aged. I slept well. The bathroom was quite nice, especially the shower cubicle.

Pool was a bit small, but OK. Lounge bar was OK too. Staff were helpful and friendly. Language wasnt a problem. Food quite good. Wifi dodgy.

I guess I'd stay here again.

a little hotel near the beach.
they provide a free tuktuk pick up from the bus station
the owner is very nice and friendly they always make sure we are properly attended,so as the staffs.
The rooms are although basic and might need a little repainting, is good enough.
The restaurant serves good food although you can find some cheaper option around.

My family and I have found Coolabah to be amazing. The staff are absolutely the shining stars of this place, the service is 5 stars, the rooms are clean and the location is great. The food at the restaurant is fabulous. Our kids have been treated beautifully by the staff. I wholeheartedly recommend the Coolabah.

Overall Ok maybe sikonville itself a little down market

we were given a room n the top floor, our mistake we did not know what a hike it was, in fairness hotel offered to change room but we had unpacked

No telephone in room so when problems on internet had to do major expedition to reception, no nad rails on steps, no lift

Room basic materesses pretty hard no coffee making facilities, no glasses in room, fridge only just worked and air conditioning very slow, may need gassing up

New chef in resteraunt, on board of specialities just said new chef, I enquired how he would be cooked, never did see him despite eating there three times

Menu far from as inspiring as their webb site

all staff very friendly and many of them, Russian lady as hostess with the mostess some nights other nights more hdden away but very friendly even though I was with my wife, if I had been alone I am sure she would have been even more attentive

general manager Danny from England very helpful and sent us to a couple of very nice beach bars, Pappa Pippo on Otres beach and the best Browns on Victory beach, that probably had some of the best value food and drinks in the area

Room Tip: Ask for a telephone or one of the lower floors

At first we were not convinced as the general location is grubby and the pool is very small and this is what you see first, However this place definatley grew on us and eventually proved to be a winner considering the state of the town and beach. The rooms were very clean and well appointed for the price, the staff were helpful, if not a bit personal....( which happens a lot in Cambodia)the management have a fantastic grasp on what tourists want and deliver with style. Would come back if not for the poor state of the beach which is no fault of this establishment, but for which all local business should take ownership of.

Staff was very accommodating when I had a problem with my shower and gave me a new room. It was within walking distance of the beach and many places to eat. Their breakfast was good and filling and that was the only meal I ate their. An ATM machine is conveniently located right in front of the hotel. Air conditioned and clean.
