“Vast rooms and great prices in a charming quiet setting by the river, just 5 minutes' drive or a cycle ride from Angkor Wat”
The rooms are much the same in terms of space and amenities. There is a great expanse of dark wood, there are indirectly lit 'treasures', there are paintings of generic Asian provenance. Furniture is huge and comfortable, beds are magnum-sized, entertainment is provided on a big TV and entertainment system. Some are upstairs, some are down: see which suits you best.
Bathrooms are sometimes idiosyncratically arranged, but all come with beautiful egg-shaped marble tubs, and lotions and potions. Just beware: the refillable bottles are labelled in English, which the cleaning staff don't read, so on our first morning we washed our hair with body lotion.
Deluxe Suite Rooms are particularly lovely in terms of design, with large living areas. But the best room is the Pool View Suite above the restaurant, which runs along the whole front of the building and benefits from a balcony and 2 queensize beds.
Breakfast dishes up excellent fresh bread and good pastries, fruit, fruit, and fruit. Tea is Twinings, and the preserves are locally made. Eggs are cooked nicely to order.
There is also a menu of authentic local lunch and dinner dishes (amok, deep-fried spring rolls, Pra Hok etc), and there's a restaurant at HanumanAlaya Boutique Residence, just up the road.
If you venture out into the Wa Bo area or the Old Market/Pub Street, you'll find a bewildering variety of dining options. Barrio is an unprepossessing but very decent French place with excellent Kampot pepper steaks and a French owner who'll give you a free glass of rotgut if he likes you. Several good Khmer places are nearby, along the river or down the main street.
Although all ages are welcome, the emphasis is on tranquility and the swimming pool is not cordoned off - watch toddlers carefully.
