Wonderful service, beautiful garden setting and my room was a good size with a huge private deck. the bed was very comfortable and although the decor is a little dated and tired it is spotlessly clean. All the staff are without exception genuinely kind and helpful while maintaining a very professional approach. Any request or enquiry was dealt with very...

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of January with a group of friends. We had an upstairs room overlooking the pool and other than a rooster crowing VERY early our room was quiet, large and relaxing with our own balcony to enjoy. Breakfasts were good with eggs, bacon omelettes etc being cooked fresh for you when you...

In a group of a dozen and can say Graeme the GM and his staff handled everything they had thrown at them. Excellent management. Rooms - the ones they're keeping are fabulous and would return, the ones they're giving up were basic but appropriately priced! Bed was excellent but I like them hard. Food - very good indeed and catering...

I was pretty disappointed with our stay at the River Garden, and wouldn't stay their again, nor recommend it to others. Nothing disastrous happened while we were there, but our room, which was close to the front office, was pretty rundown, not to mention poorly decorated. Maybe the bungalows are nicer? Most of the staff and management weren't very friendly,...

The hotel has a nice atmosphere and the staff are very friendly. The location is great; in a beautifully spot along the river. Also the hotel gardens is very nice and the pool is perfect for an evening dip after a long day sightseeing. Unfortunately, the actual hotel doesn't live up to its price. The room generally seems a bit...

I have mixed reviews about this hotel. The local staff were very friendly and helpful, the grounds were generally well-kept, but the rooms were not great. My biggest problem with the rooms was the soundproofing (or lack thereof). We could clearly hear full conversations by our neighbours as well as the loud thumping club music from a disco a few...

I love everything about the River Garden - my second visit. The ducks, the beautiful garden, the delicious food and the lemongrass martinis. Don't miss the Cooks in Tuks Tuks. All the staff, Deb and Graeme are so helpful with everything you need to know about Siem Reap and can help with arranging visits and fun things!

Thanks for this feedback. It's much appreciated however it might be useful to know that The RiverGarden is made up of 2 properties ~ one of which expires at the end of the year. We're just about to loose the building that you occupied , hence the slight lack of attention to upgrading the rooms. We're sorry your stay was...

The River Garden Hotel comprises 2 large traditional Khmer style Villas set in jungle gardens opposite the Siem Reap river. We are 2 minutes to the city center, 10 minutes to Angkor Wat and 20 minutes from the airport set in a vibrant local village area. The rooms are a mix of classic design and beautiful Khmer furnishings. Formerly the painting studio of world renowned french artist Michel Delacroix, the rooms are not spacious, with an ensuite and feature an inadequate balcony or patio looking over the un attended jungle gardens. Enjoy one of our 3 dining options, including a restaurant, a bakery cafe and our poolbar. Or refresh yourself in our outside swimmingpool or book a massage in our exclusive massage house near the pool. Amenities: Spacious well presented rooms, Large uncomfortable bed, Air conditioned, Ceiling fans, Cable TV, Free WIFI, Large private en-suite, Shower and shower facilities. Immaculately clean.
