Thank god I didn't listen to the last guy to review this hotel!!! Les Manguiers is the best place I have staying in Asia so far. Sure it is rustic, sure there are dogs that bark, kids having fun and fishing boats, but you're in the country side of Cambodia and that is the point isn't it?? Otherwise why are you in Kampot??
After a bumpy ride to the Guest House and waving to 100's of incredibly friendly and enthusiastic kids we were greeted by very friendly staff who were exceptionally helpful to ensure we enjoyed our stay. We ended up staying one night in room B3 which is my favourite room. A great balcony where you can watch the sun set at night and look out over the river during the day. There was a lovely breeze at night which kept the room cool. The second night we stayed in one of the bungalows next to the river. It was very peaceful and roomy.
The food was great and once you asked how the meals worked it turned out to be economical and exciting as there was always a great spread of different dishes to eat. There is always more food than you can eat too!! I ended up coming back briefly by myself and the staff invited me to eat with them as opposed to being alone. They are very sweet and interested in tell you about their lives and culture.
There are bikes to ride, kayaks to paddle and a great river to swim in. There is also internet and Wifi. Go on the boat ride at night and see the fireflies as there are hundreds of them in the trees. All you need to do is ask the staff what there is to do and they will tell you. They can organize tours, buses, transport etc for you.
I can't say enough good things about this place, it really is worth coming and staying here. i'll definitely being coming back.
