Coolabah Hotel
Ranked #17 of 75 Hotels in Sihanoukville
Reviewed January 6, 2014

The family room we had was nice and big with a good shower (be patient with the hot water, it eventually comes out of the tap!) and a separate loo.
The windows could definitely do with double glazing but we had an overall good experience.

I stayed in Coolabah many times as I toured South East Asia. The welcome I would always get from owners V and Douglas, or their staff was second to none. The hotel had excellent service, whether it was the rooms or the fantastic food. I also enjoyed the weekly quiz that gave it a special "home from home" feel.

Immaculately clean rooms, really lovely communal area with fantastic atmosphere. Wonderful, helpful staff. Plus it's really close to the action of Sihanoukville but silent at night to ensure non-partiers could sleep. A fantastic find!

We stayed 3 nights and we think it's not the best option for the money.

1. Location is good.
2. Room below average and bed is not comfortable at all.
3. Food is ok.
4. We checked other near by hotels and they were much nicer at the same price.

We are a couple on our honeymoon and arrived back to town from Koh Rong late in the day. Verona the owner was able to offer us a room on the spot for a great rate. The hotel was perfect- pool, comfortable, clean, safe room with contemporary feel. Over delivered for the value. The restaurant in the hotel had great food and friendly staff. We needed to travel to Trat the next day and although the bus was full the staff was able to arrange transportation directly for us. Book here you won't be disappointed!

This was or tour-groups second stay at the Coolabah. We are a bunch of noisy rowdy bikers that tour the back-waters of South East Asia so we present something of a challenge to staff and management. But they deliver here with 100% commitment. One of our group had an accident and so they arranged crutches and ensured him a well-pampered stay. We all enjoy Sihanoukville and would not stay anywhere else when visiting this town. Good clean well appointed rooms around a central pool with friendly accommodating staff. Doesn't get any better then this place. Not sure who previous reviewer dealt with but our take on management is very different. Super friendly, very accommodating and attentive. The restaurant has been upgraded from last year with a fresh faced gal in charge who keeps an eye on quality and guest happiness.

Room Tip: The large suite, i think it is room "19" is a winner!

Had heard scary things about Sihanoukville and was delighted to find that my hotel choice was so good and in such a great location. Good restaurant and walking distance to several other excellent ones. All the staff were happy and very friendly and helpful. Room was fine and quiet on 2nd floor with good view from balcony. Laundry service excellent. Breakfast choice good and tasty. Close to beaches.
Plan to re-visit for longer.
