We chose this guest house on the strength of its good reviews - all justified! Mea Culpa is in a lovely, calm garden setting with comfortable seating. Large rooms, lovely food (especially the pizza !) and attentive staff. They provide free cycles for use although it is only a 10 minute walk to the main 'hub' of town along a... More

We had stayed at Mea Culpa four years ago and chose it again. It is one block back from the main street and so nice and quiet with no scooter traffic. The building is colonial style with an attractive eating terrace set beside a green garden. We had a twin room on the second floor. The rooms open onto a... More

Mea Culpa truly is a perfect little spot in Kampot. Within walking distance from everything. Clean and comfortable rooms with good food available. And a really friendly owner! Will be back for sure!!!

Very nice peaceful guesthouse on a large property near the riverfront, only a few minutes down from Kampot nightlife. The rooms are clean, comfortable, with good amenities (AC, fan, WiFi, access to free coffee/tea and a refrigerator). There's a large garden restaurant with good food (see the other reviews). I booked a room, and owner Ben later contacted me that... More

I traveled by taxi from Sihanoukville to Kampot on the south coast of Cambodia to stay at Mea Culpa,loosely translated in today's lingo as "my bad".This is said with apologies to Latin scholars who are aware that the actual meaning is through my fault.In any event,an Irishman named Ben O'Reilly has a delightful guesthouse a block off the river and...

I've just returned from a wonderful few days in Kampot - a delightful little place to kick-back and do very little. Mea Culpa was everything and more I was expecting. Clean and spacious rooms, friendly and attentive staff, and a peaceful location just 2 minutes by bike from the bars and restaurants on the riverfront. The owner - Ben, is... More

Stayed at Mea Culpa for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, nice size, quiet and comfortable. Rooms have AC and ceiling fan. The staff were very nice and helpful. We accidentally left out iPhone charger behind in the room and they even sent a driver to Sihanoukville to deliver it to us. I would definitely... More
