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.

... move to rural areas to work on the lands. Every person who had some education were eliminated because PP did not trust educated people. His fear quickly changed into paranoïai and, like Staline, eliminated high ranks of the party, accusing them of being spies for the CIA or the KGB. 17,000 persons were tortured, judged and put to death in this secret prison called S21, the one I visited this afternoon. No phtos were allowed to ...
... sanitation. We wandered through the village and were very, very hot. John must have lost a couple of litres of perspiration as s sweatband was quite full each time he rang it out. We leant quite alot about things like using alum to settle the water, how the newer houses built ramps up to them for the motorbikes and saw lots of cropping happening. The cropping was not like our big wheat fields but small, intensive cropping for things like zucchinis, peanuts, mu ...
... It was originally a high school but in 1975, was taken over by Pol Pot's security force and turned into a prison. It soon became the largest center of detention and torture in the country. Detainees who died during torture were buried in mass graves in the prison grounds. Over 17,000 people held at S-21 were taken to the extermination camp at Choeung Ek to be executed. When the Vietnamese army liberated Phnom Penh on January 7, 1979, they found only seven prisoners alive at ...
... happy….but perhaps we are just two old ***** struggling to adjust, ha ha! That said, our time here has been very very welcome indeed, and the beach has been very kind to us. So far, Cambodia has been such an easy country to travel in, everything is more accessible, less hassle, more sights, sounds and tastes from home, and overall a very laid back and easy place to spend some time.
The main town market was full on, ...
... Asian wives/prostitutes, I met some cool people in Sihanoukville. One of them I ended up having a 'happy pizza' with one night on the beach. These are very popular in Cambodia. Hopefully you have guessed what a happy pizza is, but just in case you haven't, it's a pizza with weed sprinkled on it. We only had a small portion of weed on ours and were a bit giggley or 'happy' after it, but then it just made me so sleepy and want to get into bed that I crawled into bed at 8 ...
