A lovely hotel / guesthouse about a twenty minute walk from the crab market (where you'll probably want to eat) and the Sailing Club (which is the perfect place to watch the sun go down enjoying a half price cocktail). It's about a ten minute walk to the beach. It's at the edge of the national park which is also a great place to go for a walk (wear lots of bug spray!)
The room we had - $12, on the first floor in the original building with the restaurant - was quite basic but it was spacious and the oil burner when we first arrived was a nice touch.
The best thing about the Boat House is the staff. Lina, the owner, and the guy who worked the bar/restaurant were great. When they heard we were learning Khmer they were very patient to talk to us, slowly, in Khmer and teach us new words. We felt at home there immediately. A lovely, peaceful place to stay for a few days and one we'd certainly go back to if we were in Kep again.
