The Columns is located on a quiet tree-lined street in the heart of old town Kampot. Our historic French Colonial houses have been restored to their original charm but with the addition of modern functionality and comforts. The relaxing atmosphere and central location make for an ideal place to stay while exploring the town and its surroundings.

I stayed for three nights in a Queen Deluxe on the first floor. I was on my own and a little unwell on two of of those days. I had the most fantastic support and service from Thavy, the manageress and her team. In addition Thavy recommended what dishes to choose for dinner at a nearby restaurant and I had an excellent meal. She recommended a day trip to La Plantation which was perfect. These are the things I loved about this hotel: 1. The street outside is quiet 2. The bed and cushions are very comfortable and the cleaning is unobtrusive. 3. The room and the communal areas give a restful atmosphere. 4. The air conditioning system is not noisy. 5. The breakfast is gorgeous - I had crepes one day and cereal two days. I drank cold coffee with condensed milk so cannot comment on the coffee generally. 6. The location is excellent, so easy to walk to numerous places to eat and explore. 7. Being met outside the door on returning to the hotel at night and Thavy waving farewell as guests left

The finest little hotel, perfect located close to the river and to all the restaurants but still in a silent street. Clean rooms with all you need, The sweetest staff, and breakfast with freshly brewed coffee, and homemade mini bagels and banana cakes. (See pictures).One of our 3 days we had really good vegetarian sandwiches for lunch as well. We recommend warmly.

I stayed here for several days over the new year. The staff/owners (wasn't sure!) could not have been kinder of more accommodating. This stay was towards the end of a longish trip to Vietnam and Cambodia and the relaxed and calm surroundings of The Columns were welcome. It was spotlessly clean, served delicious breakfasts and, most importantly, a really happy place to come back to each day. They deserve all their plaudits.

We got here for New Year’s and it was one of the last places we could get into. We paid US$75, which is far more than you would pay outside high season. Hence, I cannot comment on the prices. The hotel does not have an elevator, but that’s not uncommon with local places. The breakfast is very good, rooms are clean, no problem with the showers at all.

So far the best hotel in Cambodia !!! The trip to Bankoor Mountain booked in the hotel was carried out confidently by the recommended tour operator. No wish remains unfulfilled here and even with the restaurant in the neighborhood and the Laundryservice two streets away, the management helped with the communication. The hotel is about 3 minutes from the river bank. Great go on !!!!!!!!!
