We ended our trip to Cambodia staying at the Governor's House Hotel, Alan has done a great job with the decor, this was the best hotel we had stayed in during our visit to Cambodia, really good, maybe just a little bit too quiet. Recommended!

A very warm welcome, incredible staff. Stunning accommodations. Of the thousands of hotels I've stayed in over the decades, for tourism or business, this place rates up there with 5* plus luxury hotels. Great location, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown bit still conveniently located. Highly recommend staying here if you want to feel spoiled

We didn't find the city particularly exciting so were thrilled to have this beautiful hotel to relax in. The rooms are spacious, well equipped and tastefully furnished. We had two breakfasts and dinners here and really enjoyed the choices on offer. The staff are professional and friendly. The (small) saltwater pool was lovely to dip into and to relax beside....

Very interesting hotel of 10 rooms. Our room was a landmark room with a balcony and overlooked the small swimming pool. Pool water was warm- relaxing after a day's sightseeing We ate breakfast & evening meals at the hotel. The food was good but service was very slow even though the hotel was only half full. The staff were very...

Nice individual and characteristic hotel. Staff and atmosphere was amazing. PP is a very hectic and oppressive city though. Worth the visit if you want to know more about the war and the killing fields. 2 days max. Ideally 1 night if you can. Personally, I would advise staying down near the river or night market. We didn’t use the...

Although the entrance vestibule and front of house looks impressive this is not continued through the rest of the property. Furniture is a little worn, walls are grubby and stained in places. The design of rooms is not good - ours was small and in the bathroom the wash hand basin was impossible to use without getting splashed by the...

We had a very pleasant stay here. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was freshly cooked and plentiful. I would think usually it is a quiet hotel down a side street but unfortunately there was a building site next door which started work at 630am using a pile driver so not very restful in the mornings. The...

Great location and gorgeous design. The hotel is a refurbished French Colonial Villa with a swimming pool and lounge area in the back. My friends had their wedding hosted at this venue. The hotel helped set up and decorate the whole hotel for the wedding. The outside lawn had a dinner buffet area as well as the dance floor and...

Bad points first: Wifi is very poor. Drainage for the bath in our room really does need some maintenance. Good points: The Building is lovely, it has a great feel.
