Pro's - Location wasn't an issue, just a 1km walk into town, may need a torch at night as not much street lighting. Bedroom was clean, had hot water, a/c, fan and cable tv. I didn't hear the 5am wakeup call from across the lake (as cited in other reviews)
Con's - About a 1mtr wide hole in the bathroom ceiling that leaked onto the toilet seat.
No wifi in the hotel at all and obviously no way it was getting fixed anytime soon - asked staff, told to go to the owners backpack place up the road for wifi. Whilst there, of course, witnessed some hard selling of the owners tours around the area to some of the backpack guys. Felt like a bit of a con.
Staff are generally unfriendly and unhelpful. Also puppies whine a lot at night so sleep isn't great and just to finish it off, the babies cry early in the morning.
There is much better and cheaper accom in the town, I'd avoid this place. Looks good from the outside but thats it.

Staff, standard of room, price
Overall, a great stay and good value for money.
There are no food/dining options at the hotel, but there are a few restaurants within a five minute walk. The only problem is that once it is dark, it is a very, very dark walk to get there, and as a solo female I did not feel comfortable walking to get dinner. Otherwise the location is very pretty and Banlung is a small enough town that walking into the centre during day light is no problem at all. The hotel was overall very clean, although the drains in the bathroom had a terrible smell and there were a lot of ants in the room. The room was very nice and very pretty, and it has hot water!
The staff were really great! Very friendly and helpful, had a lot of trouble booking a bus given it was a Cambodian holiday, but they spent a lot of energy sorting it out for me! They also stored some things for me whilst I went on a three day trek.

terrible. manager changed months ago. ”
the outside looks good, but that is all.
Lock broken, shower broken, no restaurant, waste of oxygen behind reception (sometimes) more concerned about his food than anything else in the world. I have stayed in 50+ hotels/guest houses in cambodia over the years and this was by far the worst. The good manager left a while back. Avoid. Much better for less in the locality.

Very good value, clean”
Central but quiet location, clean room, good value
Located at the lake but short walk (10 minutes) to the city center, quiet. Big and clean room for a cheap price. Friendly family running the hotel. The owner speaks English very well and he can tell you everything about the region. We booked two tours with him and were very content.

Great hotel totally spoilt by noiss from local Wat”
Room & price
Room was great and the location should have been too. However a Wat the other side of the lake played extremely loud repetitive music from 5am until 10pm. Woken up at 5 every day. Cannot recommend if that's a permanent feature.

Nice guest house, but smelly beds!”
New room, good location
The staff at the hotel were friendly and allowed us to delay our stay due to one of us getting sick before traveling there. The guesthouse is relatively new and in good shape with nice rooms. However, the bedclothes smelled badly, though they seemed to have been washed before our stay. Furthermore, there were blood stains on the mattress.
