Phnom Penh's gay and straight-friendly guesthouse
What we say:
You will feel like a guest staying at the manor of a kind, wealthy Khmer friend here. Set on the stubby Street 262, a quiet, pebble-strewn block behind the Mobitel Office on Sihanouk Boulevard near the Independence Monument, Australian/Khmer-run Manor House has a bunch of clean rooms in a handy location. The rooms are a good size for the money, 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 bar. There's some poolside seating, and breakfast is available, but outside of that, you need to rely on delivery for your food -- somewhat of an oddity for Phnom Penh -- but plenty of fine restaurants are just a short walk away. Staff are very friendly and they speak excellent English.

We stayed here twice on our recent travels through Cambodia. The owners & staff are very friendly & helpful. The rooms are lovely & clean. The pool, which he had almost to ourselves, was great. Anybody who serves cakes for breakfast is on a winner with me. Special mention to Samut the tuktuk driver who resides out the front who was fantastic. Would stay here again, highly recommended as was the Khmer surin restaurant which was recommended to us by the host.

Please read this and then you can understand what I mean This is a nice villa with a small pool with is nice to relax in the hot summer days. BUT they cater manly to the gay client something that is not mentioned on the web site. There is also a web site they advertise on as gay run gay owned this is what they showed me when I ask what was going on. I was with my wife and two friends we did not enjoy the romance as we would of like too. We did not sit at the pool we did not like the 70 year old man with his 18 year old boy All in all this is a shame that it is not mentioned on this web site it ruined are vacation Please do not take this the wrong way just as they did not like are presents there we did not enjoy there’s

This place was real luxury. Not cheap but lovely friendly owner and staf sorted all our Vietnam visa stuff, and booked boats without seeming to charge any more than the agencies. Even gave us a pizza when we came home drenched from a tropical storm! Fantastic haven in green leafy streets - great to go back and chill out in the pool in the heat of the day.

We had a wonderful stay
We stayed for three nights over Christmas 2007. Our room was huge, airy and very clean, with great en suite facilities. We found the staff and owner to be really friendly and helpful. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived to the moment we were waved off on our departure. There's a resident tuk-tuk driver, who went out of his way to help us explore Phnom Penh safely and effectively. We would definitely go back.
