Accomodation with a difference
Surroundings and set up
We enjoyed our stay. Staff were efficient and it was a quiet place to relax. We ate at the restaurant one night and we were very impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. It is a bit out of town but we had no real issues with getting transport to and from the location.

A French-flavoured haven
Charming hosts; lovely room; delightful ambience
Enjoyed it all - a bit out of the main part of town, but no hassle getting a tuktuk. The large open-air restaurant area; the pool and the terrace for each villa contributed to a great ambience.

Lovely staff, great food, and huge, comfy bungalow
Great breakfasts, friendly staff, spacious rooms
au cabaret vert is a lovely little spot that feels like an oasis after the dusty streets of battambang! yet unlike many other places, you still feel like you're in cambodia when you step inside. the staff are warm and friendly and do their best to ensure that you have a good time in their city, and the family that manages the place are always onhand with friendly, unobtrusive advice on how to make your stay in battambang great. the hotel grounds are small, but quiet and serene, and the pool area as well as your villa's patio make great places to unwind at the end of the day (or morning). the "natural" pool may not be for everyone (i gave it a try but found it a bit creepy, but that's just me! totally get what they're trying to do), yet it's there and is a nice offering for those who want it. the rooms are large and beds comfy. lighting could be a bit better at night, but that is a minor quibble. the only other would be that the location is hardly ideal, as it is not really within walking distance of anything (it would be a long, dark walk to the main town area at night for dinner), and tuk tuks are not as ubiquitous at night in battambang as in other more touristy parts of cambodia (though they can always be found, and some might say this is a positive!). and they all seem to know the hotel, so getting there is not a problem. then again, after a few lacklustre meals in town, maybe the best thing to do is to just stay in--the restaurant seems to draw great reviews.

Great fun, friendly, beautiful and quiet
Amazingly friendly staff and owner; Style is French and local, rather than boringly western; first non-chemical pool in the country.
On the edge of town, so it's quieter. Distance is irrelevant in this town though, since tuk tuks cost nothing to take you anywhere. The people are lovely and excellent hosts. Rooms have all comforts that you expect, but their style is not the boring western-hotel wannabe. Dining is French and local cuisine - great!

warm welcome on the outskirt of Batambang
very welcoming and helpfull staff and owners, very pleasant rooms, excellent food, green swimming pool.
very comfortable stay: the hotel is pleasant, with nicely decorated small 1-room bungalows, around a green swimming pool. restaurant on a ground floor terrace is very good with a menu offering both khmer and french specialities prepared by a very good chef, at reasonable price. the owners, a franco-cambodian couple, are very welcoming and helpfull. being located sightly away from the center of the town, you need to order for a tuktuk by phone, which is actually not an issue as you get one in 5 minutes.

Utopia in Battambang
Relaxing pool & atmosphere
Au Cabaret Vert is a diamond in the rough. For the price they charge you get a beautiful room, location, pool, atmosphere, was definitely one of the highlights of our stay. The french owners are super-friendly and the food is fantastic. It's a little outside the main area of Battambang which we liked, and it's only a 10 min walk or a 2 min tuk-tuk ride into town. Would definitely come back here if we returned to Battambang. C'est magnifique!

natural swimmingpool, nice friendly owners
this was a nice and small hotel from four french owners who really made it a nice place. The food and drinks in the restaurant were good and there was a laptop available for free internet access. During dinner frogs appeared in the diningroom ;]

Nice hotel, but far off from town
Nice design, interesting pool.
Cute pool, with fishes & tapoles! Nicely designed banuglow layout. Breakfast is ok, but gets monotonous after a couple of days. Far away from town, tuk tuk(hence haggling) is required, cos not much of interest, restaurants etc near hotel.

Bungalows great .. but pool still needs refining
eco efforts,
We booked 3 nights at Au Caberet Vert. The bungalows were beautiful, simple and stylish decorations and importantly built to minimise the need for artificial cooling. The attention to detail from an environmental perspective is excellent. The main building housed reception, the bar and restaurant as well as the owner’s quarters was built in colonial style and was very elegant. The grounds were spotless and as the garden matures it will be a very inviting addition to the hotel. The only downside for us was the pool. I know the owners are using a natural filtering system but a clean pool is not slimy on the bottom no matter how environmental you are trying to be. Nor really, should it have 3cm long baby fish joining you for a swim. I admire their efforts to create a genuine eco resort, and in theory the reed filtering of the pool sounds great, in reality it hasn’t quite made it yet. Friendly owners and staff, good breakfasts included. Also, just a little far from town to be comfortably walkable (especially at night).
