We spent 8 nights at Mea Culpa with our 4 children. Had 1 upstairs room & 1 down. Both were clean and well maintained - clean towels each day, water bottles each day, and the coffee making facility in the upstairs common area was an unexpected bonus. We had breakfast in the restaurant most days - delicious and cooked to... More

We stayed here for 2 days. The room pictured is the one we stayed in. $25 per night and it has river views and an expansive wrap around furnished balcony. The owner is absolutely delightful and make sure you try one of the wood fired oven pizzas - you can invent a pizza and choose your own toppings! This accommodation... More

Stayed 4 nights with my boyfriend and would definitely recommend, and certainly stay again. Overall a comfortable stay, and easy walk to main part of town. Room: Comfortable bed, soft towels, safe within a cupboard that also locks. Clean linens, room, bathroom. Bottled water each day was nice bonus. Fan and AC worked well, although the AC started dripping water... More

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!!!

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
