Room was clean and spacious, the small restaurant/bar has a relaxed vibe, and there is a very nice swimming pool on the neighbouring property which you can access for $3 extra. Was also impressed at how the owner seems to be giving back and supporting the local community. Overall it was good value for money, the only flaw was that it's a little bit away from the town centre (15-20mins walk away) and on a dirt backstreet which some may not feel so safe walking back to in the dark.
We enjoyed our stay here. The air conditioner in our room was cold but didn't seem to cool down the room. When we asked for a fan though, the staff happily sorted it out for us. They sorted out our tour of Angkor Wat and our tuk-tuk driver was great. Always smiling. The food and the atmosphere in the restaurant area was nice. It was pretty quiet, yet close to things, though a difficult place to walk anywhere. They did have problems finding our passports that had been left in the safe! Not cool!
