IN A NUTSHELL: AMAZING PLACE, WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE
TRIPADVISOR RATING: 4.5/5
OUR RATING: 5/5
Before we arrived we were contacted by the hotel offering us an upgrade due to us travelling with a child so we could have more space!
We were met by a driver at the airport for a complimentary lift to the hotel and arrived to happy faces greeting us with a welcome drink and taken to a beautiful, grand room which had an exotic fruit platter for us.
The room had a large seating area, one king size four poster bed with beautiful white organza drapes to keep the mosquitoes out and a single bed with a mosquito canopy net. The mattresses were deep and comfortable and the pillows fluffy.
The bathroom was equally as impressive with a stone free standing bath tub as well as a very large shower room.
All around the room and bathroom were art pieces, beautiful pots, vases, sculptures and phots of Angkor Wat.
The only improvements I would make to the room would be to add a door to the bathroom – as any parent knows, it’s hard enough keeping kids out when you need privacy. Thicker curtains on the window – again, it’s hard enough getting Ethan to sleep past 6am, the sunlight streaming in didn’t help. Finally, more wardrobe space, for a room so large, it only had one small cupboard which was a squeeze between three of us.
We were closer to Angkor Wat than most hotels and also close to Pub street where most of the restaurants and bars are located. We could walk to most places within 20 minutes but there were cheap tuktuks outside the hotel all the time too.
SERVICE & FACILITIES: 5/5
The hotel had a small pool with sun loungers and day beds dotted around it and a small covered outdoor restaurant. There were also a couple of ponds with tadpoles and tiny frogs in them which Ethan loved looking at.
Breakfast was a choice of fruit, cereal/granola, pastry basket, eggs and pancakes along with meat and noodle options.
The staff at this hotel are the ultimate winning factor, always smiling and attentive, nothing is too much trouble. They happily cut fruit up for us, spoke to restaurants for us in Khmer and even took our postcards to the post office for us!
We had an evening flight out and asked for a late checkout, they were incredibly accommodating of this and it saved us from being out in the sweltering heat with our Ethan, for that alone, we are eternally grateful.
VALUE FOR MONEY: 5/5
Incredible value for money, we paid £23 a night for the room and breakfast!
