Gay and straight-friendly
A warm but professional welcome, plenty of art deco design features, and a relatively central location, despite being secluded down a short and quiet little side street all contribute to making Manor House an enviable spot.
The rooms are well-sized and elegantly laid-out, though we felt a little pricey considering. On the other hand, it’s hard to over-estimate the relative quiet that you find down here. The rooms are a good size, with large, very well-looked after hot-water bathrooms, cable TV, fridge and air-con throughout. Some bathrooms have glass-enclosed shower stalls, while others come with bathtub showers. What swings the deal is a little swimming pool set beside the main building. It's an old-fashioned tiled pool, surrounded by potted greenery and a very sweet-looking bar at the end. There's some poolside seating, and breakfast is available, but outside of that, you need to rely on delivery for your food. However, plenty of fine restaurants are just a short walk away in BKK1 on the other side of Sihanouk Boulevard. Staff are very friendly and they speak excellent English.
