My recent stay at Colonial Mansions was to say the least extremely disappointing. I have in the past been a long stay guest and for the most part very happy. Having stayed there I do know the layout of the property and surrounding environment. There is major construction in the immediate vicinity; hence I requested a room away from the construction area!
This was confirmed in writing along with the rate.
Upon my arrival there was no record of my booking, the rate or my request!
After a lengthy wait at reception I was escorted to quite possibly the noisiest room in the property. Being the middle of the day I was not overly concerned, but what a big mistake this was!
To my surprise the adjacent construction was a 24-hour operation and an unbelievably noisy one at that. Apart from the relentless noise the windows did not close properly and allowed the noise to penetrate very easily.
This was possibly the worst nights sleep (or lack of it) I have ever had.
I have brought this to the managements attention and have ignored me completely! Their silence is as deafening as the nearby construction noise and is completely unacceptable.
This construction will be ongoing for several years, in my opinion this property should be closed while the construction is ongoing, it really is unbearable. I will never stay there again.

... pulled it all down and used the building materials/tools for themselves after the Khmer Rouge were eventually overthrown. However the buildings have been replaced by photos and remembrance points around the killing fields and whilst the skulls and long bones have been excavated, the small bones were left in the the mass graves and those who were buried under the water have been left to RIP in their graves.
After our tour at the killing fields we met our tuk tuk ...
After writing my post last night, Ed and were in bed and began talking as usual:) Guess what, he and I were on the same page AGAIN. Its awesome. We decided NOT to go to the interview with the suspected Christian Missionary school. The owner calls us 'dears' and keeps sending us blessings. I looked up the company and it seems to be global and very Christian. Thus, why we have not seen the curriculum yet, I imagine. He also wouldn't tell us what ...
