Lovely Small Hotel set in Lush Tropical Garden

“Hotel Wat Maisons is made up of three Khmer style houses with 12 bedrooms, set in grounds of lush tropical vegetation. The rooms are lovely and old-fashioned with dark wood furniture and feel very comfortable.

The swimming pool is a good size and due to the small size of the hotel we had it to ourselves most of the time. There are comfortable sunbeds to lie on and admire the banana and frangipani trees.

The restaurant has wifi but otherwise fits with the traditional colonial style. Dinner is a set menu each night, although the kitchen will serve western style dishes for those who do not want Khmer style cooking. The set menu we had consisted of five courses, was absolutely delicious and we felt it good value for $12 per head.

The staff are very welcoming and make you feel at home. The hotel has a laid back style and, in keeping with this, breakfast is a leisurely affair – make sure you allow plenty of time before you are due to leave.

All in all, this was a special place to stay and we really enjoyed our two nights here.”
