4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Spent a week here, very impressed, simple but very clean with everything we needed. Lovely staff, especially Ben the owner. Great breakfast with bread straight out of the outdoor pizza oven, steaming hot. Very reasonable price and our room had an awesome view of the sunset over the mountains each evening.

Staff were so very friendly and helpful, offering sound advice on local opportunities and arranging transport for an excellent day about in the region. Food was delicious: pizza lived up to its' glowing reputation and the breakfast was delectable. The 'dining room' located in the outdoor patio was so welcoming and serene, both in the glow of evening lights and... More

The place was quiet and peaceful. The rooms were very clean. Service was superb! The staff were so nice and friendly that we felt comfortable hanging out just in the guesthouse, having pizza and drinks. The pizza is a must have! The owner Ben and his staff specially prepared the wood fired oven to make me and my friend a... More

The owner goes out of his way to help you with any request. The staff are super friendly. The real wood fired pizzas are superb and there is a lovely garden to relax in peaceful setting. The rooms are well decorated and kept very clean. Overall, an ideal place to stay for a relaxing stay in Kampot.

We stayed 4 nights and loved it. The staff are friendly and made our stay feel very familiar and relaxed. The hotel does not offer any pool - not that uncommon in Kampot - we occasionally missed it, but ended using plenty of time in the bar area sipping lemon juice and reading or playing board games. Perfect place for... More

This was our third trip to Kampot. We were unable to get a room at Mea Culpa on the first but fortunately planned our second and current trips better and on both occasions were able to obtain a room on this and our previous visit Jan 2015. The owner Ben even offered us the same room and was able to... More

We stumbled upon this place during a very busy time. The owner went out of his way to help us and make us comfortable and is such a nice man. The rooms are very comfortable and clean and it is a nice area to stay in. It's right near the river and a ten minute walk to the downtown area.... More

We had a lovely 3 night stay at Mea Culpa. Ben and his staff were so friendly - there was a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. Nothing was any trouble to ask, the food was delicious especially enjoyed by our teenage sons. Very spacious lounge areas, lovely garden to sit in, river nearby, bikes. Very comfortable clean and spacious rooms.... More

Mea Culpa is a real find. Nice rooms, air con, clean, lovely staff, owners and a great price! One of the owner's Ben obviously has a passion for pizza. He has a very serious wood fired pizza oven. I watched him preparing it long before dinner, checking the temperature with a digital thermometer and sweeping the ashes from the floor... More
