This place was perfect for my 11 night stay. It is clean, well-run and a short walk down to the river. The rain shower is a Cambodian luxury which you’d usually expect at much more expensive places. The very cold 50c beers between 12pm and 5pm are very welcome on returning from a morning of exploring (especially on a hot day). The open mic night was great...there are some really talented musicians in Kampot! William, the affable Alaskan, is a great host...helpful without being intrusive. I would certainly return!

Grand mansion

Interesting and eclectic guest house. The room was spacious and reasonably comfortable, though the mattress was showing signs of long use. No fridge in the room, but I was able to put drinks in the downstairs fridge. Good food menu. Location is in town, not too far from restaurants etc., but rather far from the ocean/beach. A bit of a party atmosphere at times, but otherwise quiet.
