Bokor Mountain Lodge
Lovely building, so-so decor
What we say:
Bokor Lodge has changed hands and opened and closed a couple of times over the years. Currently the FCC group owns the place, while it is independently run by friendly Eric. Rooms come either with or without river views, while all are air-con and come with cable TV, hot water bathrooms, ceiling fans and breakfast. The front rooms have bathrooms with bathtubs. The accommodation is not up to the FCC standard -- we found the rooms to be a bit frumpy and inferior to what we expected, with dusty, fake flowers and paint chipping from the walls. The downstairs bar looks like it's been renovated recently and really the rooms need a similar facelift. That said, by Kampotian standards this is a reasonable midrange choice. A comfortable dining area is out front and a pleasant second-floor veranda overlooks the river. Even if you're not staying here, it's worth dropping by come the late afternoon for a sundowner. WiFi is available.

I loved it!
I spent 4 nights here in late July 2012 and loved every moment of it! Okay, I'll admit I'm a flashpacker at this point in my present life, so $35 per night for one of the river view rooms, including breakfast, didn't seem excessive to me. Particularly after I had checked out Rikitikitavi and found their rooms rather dark and gloomy. The lodge was what - tired and uninspiring? Hello, you're in Southern Cambodia, folks! From the moment I walked in and was greeted with big smiles and a 'can-do'attitude from the lovely staff, until the moment I was hugged by Eric before I left, I was treated like an honoured guest. Breakfast was plentiful and I enjoyed a few meals at lunch and dinner, my choice of local fare but plenty of western food on offer. The lodge arranged a private trip to Kep and the pepper plantations by tuktuk, at a very reasonable rate, and I opted to take a taxi back to Phnom Penh, also arranged by the staff. I cannot speak higly enough of the Bokor Mountain Lodge and look forward to my next visit, hopefully soon. By the way, check out the Seeing Hands Massage places for a one-hour massage for $4.... there are two within walking distance and I found the one on the right (facing the river) to be excellent.

Stayed here one night as Rikitikitavi was fully booked. Charged $40 per night for a non river view room and was seriously not worth the money. Very tired and uninspiring room - no excuse really as the building itself is charming. Everything's a bit dusty and grimy - uncared for. Lovely ambience from upstairs balcony. Restaurant food was really not up to standard and certainly did not live up to the prices charged. There are soooo many better options in Kampot!

beautiful house but overpriced
a beautiful house in a great location overlooking the river and the elephant mountains. rooms a big, but the bathroom (with bathtub) was in poor condition.we booked a bokor mountain tour somewhere else and when the driver came to pick us up he was sent away by the staff telling him that we had already left - wich was not true!could have been an accident, but they did try to sell us a tour by taxi several times.
