Having stayed at a few places in Cambodia, I appreciate when a hotel has good service. The staff members were extremely helpful and made the stay even more enjoyable. The rooms were clean, comfortable bed, hot water, air con and cable TV. The breakfast, included in the price, is delicious and I was happy to have a 'real' Cambodian coffee with my breakfast. The garden is quiet and pretty. Personally, I wanted to stay away from Riverside where it can get quite hectic, Frangipani was the perfect location to show my friend around and take her to the Russian Markets. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
The only thing I would suggest is that if you are organising travel to Kampot through the hotel, be clear on ordering the 'Express Bus'. I said I wanted a direct bus and got the local six hour bus instead of the two hour express, tourist bus. Put a dampner on things a tad but it may have come down to communication issues and what was available. Apart from that, a great stay all round.
