Very overpriced, poorly maintained and neglected place. I paid 60 British pounds for a 2 day stay in the Boathouse. The property is right on the river and has splendid views but it is well past its best and in need of renovation. There is no aircon and no fridge, the outside bed mattress was missing and pillows were very dirty. The windows are slatted and have no mosquito meshing so you will be eaten alive. The whole building itself was very dirty and unattractive and nothing like the pictures. The staff were all asleep when I arrived in the public areas and totally disinterested. The worst thing was the fact that there was a dead dog in the river right beneath my balcony by the pontoon. It had probably been there for a few days. I alerted the manager and he pushed it away with a stick. 5 minutes later it was there again. Apart from the dead dog there were lots of plastic bottles in the river near my room. I booked this place for my birthday and it was very disappointing indeed. I definitely wouldn't go back. All the positive reviews about this place and pictures are misleading. "Dead dog" pretty much sums up the whole place. Avoid!

Beautiful location. We stayed in the Boat Lodge that overlooks the water. Unfortunately the night we stayed there was a huge party with a DJ at the property next door. Their music went until 2am and the whole bungalow was shaking because of the bass. Even with noise cancelling headphones in we could not sleep. We messaged the property and they never replied. There was no apology or acknowledgment in the morning. Really disappointing.

I found the Champa Lodge a year ago and have stayed here on every visit to Kampot since - This is my 4th stay! The rooms are comfortable and affordable, the food is good (get the sautéed potatoes!) and there is an excellent selection of Belgian beers. Also, it has the best location on the river - convenient for kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding, and a beautiful view across the river.

Champa Lodge is situated on a bend on the Preaek Tuek Chhu River and has beautiful views on both directions. We stayed in the Boat House with a gorgeoud=s river aspect. The Lodge comprises of 4 or 5 large beautifully built cabins / houses on stilts that were actually built elsewhere, dismantled and then rebuilt in situ and totally fit the surroundings. There is a gorgeous garden with plenty of places to chill out, play games, sit and watch the river go by, or to just relax in the hammocks. You can rent out kayaks, or paddle boards to traverse the green cathedral, or hire a motobike to head to The Bokor national park. The food served is great, which is good as there isn't really anything else within walking distance. There was a really good selection of Kymer and Western (French/ Belgian) influenced dishes. The included breakfasts are delicious too! There is such a lovely chilled vibe here that made us wish we had sent more than 2 days here.

I've stayed here before, which is why I chose Champa Lodge again when visiting Kampot. The setting is gorgeous, next to the river and the views are perfect. If you want an extremely relaxed atmosphere, river swims, a friendly and helpful staff plus a very good food menu then look no further. I felt very at home here - the place is a class act, definitely.

Honestly I was a bit unsure about staying here due to the reviews regarding poor service, bad attitudes etc. But I genuinely felt the manager, owner and their staff could not do enough to accommodate their guests needs. They were super friendly and welcoming and if they were unable to assist with something directly they would find the right man for the job. The manager and owner are both French and their wives and staff are all local Khmer people which helps the local economy of Kampot. We changed room after a few days stay due to personal reasons and although we insisted we would pay the price for the more expensive room the management insisted on changing the costing so we got charged less overall. The kayaks are a great opportunity to enjoy the local surroundings particularly the Green Cathedral which is an absolute must. The surroundings are amazingly peaceful and a joy to just bask in throughout the day. The food is absolutely incredible, particularly the lamb chops/lamb shank and any of the khmer foods on offer. Although be aware some may be a little spicy for some people.

We didn’t stay here, but floated in from our long kayak ride in search of a cold drink. To our delight, this ramshackle place served a wide variety of cold Belgian beers, each variety served with its own specialized glass. They hit the spot! We enjoyed the low-key, riverside ambiance, drank to our hearts’ content, and paddled on our way. A nice stop!

We weren’t staying here but popped in as we had read you could hire kayaks. In the end we couldn’t resist the electric boat, which came with two sun loungers on a bamboo platform! It was so relaxing gliding along this very beautiful stretch of the river without any hard work! The only drawback was that the boat couldn’t access the Green Cathedral (network of narrow streams through the mangroves) but it was still a lovely way to see the river. Hire prices were very reasonable - electric boat $10/hour, kayaks $3. After our boat ride we stayed at the lodge for some drinks and relaxing in hammocks by the river.
