“Simply the best”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Our Tuktuk driver recommended this boutique hotel run by an Australian man called Ray. We were offered room 1 on the first floor with a fabulous view of the river from our bed. The room was spacious and flooded with natural light. Everything worked well, the towels were soft, thick and fluffy unlike most places we have stayed in Cambodia. The bed was comfortable and the room was spotless. It has a large bathroom, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. Breakfast is included and was an ample breakfast including eggs, bacon and tomatoes, a plunger of coffee each and a huge fruit salad as well as juice and a baguette.
The bar downstairs offers well priced drinks and is quiet and ambient.
We went for one night and stayed for two but could easily have settled in. The staff were helpful and friendly without being intrusive. We love Kampot and this was far the best hotel we have stayed in. The only suggestion is to bring a head torch if you like to read in bed as there were no reading lights in our room. Ray has only owned the place for 8 months and requests feedback.

Room Tip: There is no lift so first floor is good.

This was our 2nd trip to Kampot and preferred Riverside over the equally nice Rikkitikkitavvi for several reasons.
Location and views (it is slightly north of the old bridge, excellent mountain and river views and our room 3rd floor, had a balcony.
Rooms were spotlessly clean and well attended with toiletries and nicely laid out. TV too small (but we didnt watch it anyway) and bathroom door designed for Khmers not Westerners were the only downsides; that and no lift.
Ray, the hotelier, is reserved but very open to talking about the hotel, the city, his thoughts and he and Mai paid attention to details without being obsequious.
Breakfasts lacked variety but were huge and excellent (eggs, bacon, baguette, fresh pressed coffee, juice and large fresh fruit bowl included). Nice vibe for drinks and watching the river flow.
Recommend it highly.

Room Tip: Riverview is worth it!

We stayed for 3 nights and paid $30 a night. The owner Ray does not initially come across as overly friendly but warms up! His staff are all lovely though. Rooms are good and everything is very clean and new. View over the river is great.

Stayed at the beginning of April weather was just cooling down and was great the locals did tell me that it would get a lot hotter though. The hotel staff were friendly and the service was great. Room was very clean generously sized, tea and coffee making facilities were in the room. Best air conditioning very quick to cool the room.

View over the river from the room was excellent

Close enough to walk to the markets and catch a tuk tuk to bring back your purchase.

Would advise any one to book and stay overall great staff, prices and location.

Room Tip: Front room was great with terrific views of the river. The other guests inform me that their rooms...

Our group of 6 people stayed for 2 nights in March. The Hotel was very nice, with great views over the river. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony with our glass of wine and watching riverside come alive in the evening! The sunsets were great too! Rooms were spotless and the beds good.

We walked everywhere and there were lots of great restaurants around. A boat trip down the river was a highlight with beautiful scenery.

Breakfast was fresh and plenty of food. Staff were friendly. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel.

This is a brand new hotel looking at the river in Kampot. We only stayed there for 1 night. The bedroom was big and spotless clean.
The location is very good as you can walk to most places in Kampot.
The breakfast that was included was very nice. there was so much to eat that we couldn't finish it all...

The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. It is located right across from the river bank, so the view was fantastic! It takes only 5 mins to city center, and you can easily walk everywhere. I really like the breakfast, especially the bowl of various kinds of fruit. The owner (I think) is very helpful and friendly. Overall, it is an excellent hotel!
