A tree-lined “street” flanked by detached wood-clad and brick bungalows makes the neat little residence that is Bamboo Guesthouse.

The rooms are have air con and are clean, if a little spartan and dark though the brick bungalows are brighter. They’re pretty roomy as well, and the bathrooms have hot showers. The TVs offer little in the way of diversion with only one or two fuzzy English channels, and it is possible the fridge may have the wrong plug so will not work. However, the staff here were friendly and the restaurant offers solid Cambodian food that is well prepared and generously portioned. A pleasant stay, especially for the price. If you’re making your way there on your own steam, this can be a tricky one to find since there is no sign from the main road to indicate the turn. They were building a pool when we visited which will make this an even more attractive option when completed. Some of the staff speak reasonable English, and they should be able to put you in contact with a guide and/or moto hire.

To find Bamboo Guesthouse: If you’re travelling along National Route 57 towards Thailand, there is the long straight stretch running from the west of the Independence Monument Roundabout. It takes a hard right after 3 kilometres, and you then take the first right followed by the first left, and it’s there on your right hand side.
