The property was a green haven and one got the feeling of being inside a rain forest. There was serenity and peace all around and the staff were very helpful and courteous. The only meal we had was breakfast which was sumptuous and good. However, the rooms, especially the bathrooms needed a bit more attention. They were not very convenient...

Battambang is not on the tourist common circuit and is now starting to be visited. The Sanctuary is a beautiful place with a zen gardens and pool and nice villas, but it needs urgently maintenance and more staff to get better. We've just realized that the person at reception do almost everything. of course they do their best but it...

The staff there are lovely. Visited the place in March, so hopefully all the issues have been fixed. Walking in to the hotel everything seemed perfect, the setting is lovely with a beautiful garden and it felt like you're walking into a hidden gem. However, the facilities are run down after taking a closer look. When we stayed, the hot...

Initial impressions were good. Beautiful planting, serene music, attractive reception and large separate bungalows. However things just kept falling a little short. The floors of rooms and restaurant looked grubby, although this was just wear. The pool could have been lovely, but instead always looked murky. Adjacent to this is a stagnant pool, that could have been very pretty with...

The location is beautiful and the rooms are wel laid out but things are a bit neglected. There is an unpleasant smell from a stagnant pond behind the restaurant. I have been amazed that despite the primitive drainage Cambodia does not smell (unlike Hong Kong), but this was the first time I was confronted by smells. The pool is beautiful...

The entrance to the property is small and unassuming but once you reached the actual hotel area you are in a verdant garden full of greenery and flowers. The layout is intimate and quite clever with the exception of the room directly facing the pool which is a bit too exposed. The pool itself was very clean and well maintained....

Very little hot water and despite a Buddist atmosphere a member of staff somehow managed to tie a plastic bottle to a cats tail causing the cat to panic and run round at speed. . This they found highly entertaing, I had been about to sit by the pool on one of the dirty looking sun loungers. The best thing...

This hotel is located a 5 minute ride from the town centre in an out of the way pleasantly quiet location. The manager was extremely courteous and helpful and the staff were very pleasant, even though we only stayed one night. Our room was very spacious and well-presented and we were very pleased to use the pool at the end...
