“cosy, lovely guesthouse with very friendly staff”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

we stayed at swiss-garden guesthouse for 5 nights and appreciated the homely atmosphere, the lovely breakfast and the very delicious coffee with the extra real swiss chocolate that comes with it!

the rooms are ok, basic but clean & with daily service (new towel, water), free wifi, ensuite (proper shower not a wet cell - low water pressure though), TV and AC.

The staff and owners are very friendly and helpful and will give you advice about the area, tickets and so on.

The beach is very close (just a minute walk) and a 5-10 minutes-walk brings you to the city center where you find loads of restaurants and bars. the location of the guesthouse is perfect!

We stayed for 11 days in this guesthouse. We booked a tripple a/c room for $ 15,- a night.
The guesthouse itself look to be a little remote but in fact it is in the middle of everything. 50 meters from ocheuthhal beach, 5 min tuktuk from otres and 5 minutes tuktuk to the city centre. Within walking distance you will find lots of restaurants, foodstalls, bars etc.
The first night we stayed in room 4 (?). This room is ok and have a hudge bathroom but there is no natural light in this room so we asked for another room. We picked room 1 for the remaining days. 6 x 4 meters (app) with a small bathroom. The room have a lot of windows. The room was spotless and very clean. Big king size bed with good mattresses. 1 sofa and some nice furniture. Tv with lots of channel (hbo, axn, bbc, espn, etc). 2 fans and a/c.
The a/c worked well and kept the place cool without to much noise.
The bathoom was small but good enough. Seperate shower so everything stays dry outside the shower. Sometimes there was a kind of sewer smell inside the bathroom but not to heavy.
Also little flies in the beathroom. We always have a can of baygon and that kills everything :)
Wifi is free. Fast enough but for some reason i could not upload anything. 2 times there was a problem with the internet but the staff request a repairman and he fixed the problem within notime. We did not eat in the questhouse because we just like to eat on the beach.
Room is cleaned every day, towels changed every day, toiletpaper, water (1 bottle p/p) and soap are provided. The staff and owners are very friendly and can give you advice about the area, tickets, and so on. (if you need bustickets get them on the 168 busstand. If you book on a ticket counter you will pay 20 to 60 % more !!) laundry service at 1 dollar a kilo.
There is always staff around which make the place save and secure.

Next time i would go here again and not even look for something else.

Room Tip: room 1 is big and have a lot of daylight

We stayed 7 days in the lovely Guesthouse of Monica and Peter. We appreciated the daily room service, the cleanless and of course the delicious coffee. The breakfast was very good, try the omlette with cheese and ham :-) yummy, also the chocolate cake was great. Manica and Peter are very friendly and helpful, the tips of bouth are priceless.

The beach is very close, just a minute walk. To the maintown you have to walk 10 minutes. So it is close enough to go there, but far away to have no disturbing noise from the bars. Best price performance in town - awesome. We had free wifi, ensuite (proper shower not a wet cell), TV and AC. We would stay here again.

Best regards

Verena & Lukas

Room Tip: They have great single room, that you can't find on booking.com! You have to ask directly Monica...

I loved this little guest house run by Peter & Monica a great couple who made you feel very welcomed. OK it may not be the Ritz but, then you are not paying Ritz prices. The rooms are basic but very clean & adequate with daily servicing, they have en suite , TV, AC & Wi-fi. Breakfast is very good. It's also a coffee shop set in a beautiful little garden, I can recommend Monica's home made cakes - Yummy. So even if you're not staying there drop in for a coffee & cake. Location is spot on just 100 metres from the beach & a 10 minute walk from the centre of town. I would stay here again.
There is a half decent French restaurant next door and plenty of bar grills along the water front but, don’t go to Cambodia expecting good food because it isn't going to happen. Our holidays are all about food & trying different restaurants, we expected it to be like Thailand how wrong could we be!! You will not find any gastro places here in fact you will be hard pushed to find any really good food if you find anywhere serving Cambodia cuisine let me know. However, if you like ribs, burgers, hot dogs etc. then you'll love it. The fish is good & very fresh but just BBQ'd.

Room Tip: We had room 5 but I would avoid this if possible as it has no window.
