Inquiry Submission By kawoos


Heading to Cambodia in May & have most of the trip sorted BUT I’m now beginning to have doubts around hotel choice in Battambang?

We will be a group of 7, 4 adults and 3 teens. I have tried to book accommodation (under 100AUD per night) that most suits a family of 4 for the bulk of the group. With this in mind sometimes booking 2 rooms is more economical. In Battambang after noting some regulars choice of the Seng Hout, I have booked 4 rooms – 2 x Garden View @ 35U$D; 2 x Superior Double @ 20U$D. Seemingly pretty good value & in what seems to be an excellent location.

My doubts have come from the more recent reviews which seem to consistently speak of trouble with the shower, no hot water; dirty pool; cockroaches and ants; dirty rooms. Overall, not instilling me with confidence 🙁 . The new TA doesn’t show how many reviews the reviewer has done either. If there are a lot of one off reviews I tend not take too much notice, reviews on other booking sites are also average.

I have no idea if we are booked in Hotel 1 or 2, nor do the reviews all identify which hotel they are reviewing (some do).

The other options i can see are Sangker Villa and Moloppor Villa (sounds like it might be new?). Neither of these are as close to town as Seng Hout, where we would like to be.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Recent experience with Seng Hout or others?

Much appreciated 🙂
