Lovely building, so-so decor
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.
