The slightly out of town location loses them a point or two but if you do have transport, or perhaps are only staying in town for the a night, this is a top choice.

The guesthouse is around 3 kilometres south of town on National Route 5 so, along a very busy highway and so it’s a disagreeable, and even potentially dangerous, bicycle ride after dark. Built in a tiny resort style, Neang Puon is set back from the main road with a driveway revealing a garden area to your left, the pool and lawn on the right, restaurant and coffee shop straight ahead and a single-storey block of rooms in the far right corner.

The garden’s well maintained and the restaurant serves up good value meals and good coffees as well as having a wider bar selection than most. The small but cute pool is well designed and open to the public ($3 entry) so being the only one in town, it can be crowded, especially at weekends. Local kids can get understandably excited to visit, so don’t expect too much quiet relaxing in a poolside deckchair on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

The rooms are appealing, with a sparkling white coat of paint and small terraces with chairs and tables out front. (Note that they are a reasonable distance from the pool.) Interiors are probably the best rooms we saw in town and are reasonably sized, simply but tastefully decorated, well-furnished and very clean. There is an ensuite hot water bathroom, cable TV, air-con and WiFi. Your room is offered with or without breakfast, and $25 for two people including breakfast compares favourably with other rates in these parts.

The friendly Khmer/American owner should be able to dig you up a motorbike or bicycle and has plenty of favourite tuk tuk drivers on call. Neang Puon is a great choice, if you don’t mind the location, though with a grand total of just six rooms, you do need to call in advance to secure a reservation.
