TravelPod Member ReviewsDon Bosco Hotel School Sihanoukville
Love, love, love this hotel! We went for two days and stayed for a week. This spotless, sparkling hotel is a real treat, from bathrobes and sandals in the wardrobe to hot showers and fluffy white towels, the room was huge with a fridge and colour television, beautiful bathroom and large bright windows which were tinted so no one could see into your room, we felt like we were in a luxurious four star hotel but with the price tag of a two star hotel. The staff are students from the college, based in the hotel area and are charming. They are obviously learning on the job and as such a few small mistakes are made, but for us they added to the charm of the hotel as the students just want everything to be perfect for your stay. Nothing is too much trouble and they take great care, time and attention over every little thing. A little patience on the part of the guest is nothing to ask when young people are learning and trying so hard to have everything perfect. From the warm welcome when you arrive to the equally warm welcome you get every time you step into the hotel reception area, the warm smiles and conversations with the students made our time here very special. The swimming pool is big enough to actually swim in, and if you have children the shallow end is spacious for play also. The food was spectacular, very tasty and all home made, check out the breakfast croissants and the pumpkin ravioli for dinner, oh and don't forget the silky smooth ice cream, yum yum. We would heartily recommend this hotel, do not be put off by the location, it is quiet and a little out of the way, but the hotel has a shuttle mini bus service three times a day and it is cheap and easy to hire a scooter. The wifi in the rooms is very strong and we were able to skype home, not something we have been able to do in all our hotels. We really loved our stay here and were sad to leave, we could have stayed another week or two if time permitted, the staff and young people made our time here very special and we hope to return sometime in the future.

We have arrived down at the beach near a place called Sihanoukville (awful to pronounce) and we have found a complete gem of a hotel. We are staying in Don Bosco's Hotel School, it is a college for local young people who come here to train in the tourist and hospitality industry, they have a week at college then a week at school throughout their …
... minutes none of us spoke. We were just sitting in a line, and looking out to the river, the greenery beyond, the grey mountains beyond that, the sunsetting beyond those mountains and the beautiful color of the sky. Its just all came together. It would have been so annoying to have someone make conversation then, and we all seemed to understand that without saying it. Finally, we started talking again, and then we realized that although we had been together ...
This weekend started on Thursday really with the wonderful news that I got into Birmingham to start work in august !!! This means I get to move in with Owen :D I am so happy :D it also means I potentially am allowed a cat and decorate the spare room with all my pink flowery stuff... :p you can keep the man cave O, I'll allow that. All jokes aside I am so happy that we're moving in together, it makes all the hard work very much worth it :D ...
... I decided that the vultures in Siem Reap were getting to me, I booked an overnight "sleeper" bus ride to Sihanoukville. It was a couple dollars more than the other bus, but it was still super cheap-- $18 for a 10 hour bus ride. After I got my ticket, I looked online at reviews of this particular company. They were horrible and described this as a bus ride from absolute hell, and this company was known for its accidents. Needless to say, I was nervous about ...
... to think that after a few beverages he's better, well that theory was knocked out the window tonight wasn't it! Haha. He didn't want to talk to me, such a soar loser! And then he lost again to the ozzy guy. Bless, his luck is running out! We did head to JJs but we didn't last long before it was a journey back home, I was absolutely shattered because unlike some I hadn't napped all morning! ...
