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.

Another way of combating this is to try to encourage Davit to set goals with patients, so they have a clear idea of what they're working towards and time scales, however I'm not sure he's doing this and I really don't know if this is understood when I explained, or not.
Another thing they aren't doing is advertising. They want me to go ...

Our tuk tuk driver then took us back to the riverfront, past the olympic stadium, where we had lunch then walked back to our hotel. We chilled for a bit then Adam had found a nice sounding restaurant online so we went for a walk to try and find it. We stumbled across the Royal Palace (which we thought we had ...

Next we headed over to the charmingly named Genocide Museum. I didn't want to go here but was able to wander round the grounds without having to see any of the horrific photos of torture during the Khmer Rouge years when 2 million Cambodians were killed by Pol Pot's party over a period of 4 years - a quarter of the population. ...

Sitting here, at the guesthouse along the sidewalk in the city of Phnom Penh, Cambodia I feel surprisingly comfortable and ...
... had a couple of beers and some really good Khmer food. The next day was a little birthday for me, the big 3-0! We started the day with opening a few presents and cards which was lovely. Out of nowhere, every member of staff appeared singing happy birthday to me with a cake with my name on- very sweet of them! We ate breakfast and then Ravie, the lady at the hotel came to get me to take me to the spa. Chris had booked me an aromatherapy massage and ...
