This place is an excellent choice if you want a quiet retreat to come home to at the end of the day. Yes, it is at the edge of town (only about a 15 minute walk along the river front to the main tourist area; we had motorbikes), but for me that was part of the attraction. Frankly, the centre of Kampot is a bit noisy at night for my taste. Rooms are clean, nicely decorated and represent good value for money. Personally I found the mattress a bit tired, but it is worth noting I like bedding plush and no one else in my family had a complaint. The only quibble was that there was no blankets on the bed (only sheets), but I suspect they would have provided them if we had remembered to ask. A shared area upstairs had a fridge and tea and coffee making etc. Staff are very attentive (I noticed one reviewer found this annoying) and sweet - like a big family. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and owner. The grounds, while not expansive, are big enough to find a shady corner or for children to play without having to worry. The woodfire pizza is nice, as is the outdoor dining / bar area. Other guests were quiet and respectful. Overall I found it a relaxing and comfortable place to stay, and would probably stay again for this reason.
