“What an excellent place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Just a few metres from the beautiful Kampot river,and owned/managed by the gregarious and ever so laid back Norm,this is a perfect chill spot in town for long or short stay in Kampot.
Terrific facilities with with diy kitchen,wi fi,great sounds and a panoramic rooftop terrace,it would be difficult to find more comfortable lodgings in town,especially at the price.Large comfortable airy rooms,some with aircon,all with powerful fans and tv...highly recommended!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

On my journeys through Cambodia I discovered a new and very peaceful homestyle accomodation in Kampot. Moon River Lodge is situated on the riverfront, you can choose between different room sizes and types (from 10$ fan to 25$ a/c, all with private bathroom), about a 5min walk along the river into the „hustle and bustle“ of the town. Norm the owner is always around with advice on things to do and with great infos on Cambodia (he has lived here quite a long time himself). He also runs a tictuk (converted little car in the style of a tuktuk) which you can book for tours onto Bokor Mountain etc. and he also picks you up from the busstop if requested! Tasty breakfast on offer as well. Not to forget the splendid views from the 2 terraces onto Bokor Mountain and the Kampot River! Very, very relaxing spot which I truly recommend.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Stayed here Jan 2012 with my wife and three teenage children. Had never heard of it but the owner of another hotel took us there when all hotels in the centre of town were full.
So glad with the choice. Family run operation and they live in the home next door and cook all the meals. Such a welcoming environment, great advice and hospitality and good meals. Even drove us to the bus station at 6am so we didnt have to walk.
Its a short walk from the centre of town along the river but we loved the walk and the opportunity to see some more of the town rather than just the main streets.
No hesitation going back. Feel free to message me if you want more information
