Long Villa Guesthouse
A good mix of rooms
What we say:
Long Villa is at the northern end of Kampot on the road leading to the new bridge. Its accommodation is a two-storey building back off the main road. Rooms are mostly good and clean -- the cheapest are ordinary, but their larger mid-priced rooms are quite good value for Kampot. A fair supply of travel information is available and the management are happy to arrange all manner of onwards travel. This guesthouse is a short walk from the river and the central market, but you're quite a stroll from the town's main restaurant district, although the guesthouse now runs its own restaurant of some repute, with popular wood-fired pizzas that are well priced at $7.50 for as many toppings as you like. The wine selection is quite impressive. There's pay-for internet as well as motorbike and bicycle rentals. Like many places, if business is slow, ask for a discount.

Lovin' Long Villa
I've got only postive things to say. For a $4/night room, it was great. Clean, tidy, and the staff was super helpful and friendly. I loved hearing the geckos at night (the big ones are LOUD) and liked the friendly dogs. Rented a bike for $1/day, and took a moto out a few times ($8/day, can pay for increments).

mouse in the bedroom
nice place, friendly people, good restaurant, but I don't like animals in my room. Also pretty noisy at night, dogs barking all night ...

Not too shabby
My room was a twin with fan, private bath and TV, all for only US$4. The staff are very helpful, and the restaurant was good. On the down side, I organised a moto to take me to the border with one of their guys, whom never showed up, leaving me in the pouring rain, waiting for another driver to pass by. oh well.

Negative staff interactions
I was taken here by a taxi driver who would not give me my suitcase until I would look at the rooms, who was then slipped cash by the receptionist as he left. The room was nice and a good deal, but I was unknowingly overcharged $2 for the guesthouse's tour to Bokor by a receptionist. Restaurant food was very good. On my second night, the key broke off in the lock and the staff put me in an empty room rather than trying to address the problem. They didn't fix it until almost noon the next day and I did not get a discount, and worried I would miss the bus out of town. The owner became rude to me in the morning, as if it were my fault. I would not recommend Long Villa due to difficulties with the staff.

Long Villa has a homely feel. The staff are really friendly and helpful especially this one guy whose name I still don't know. A bit put off by the chirping of the birds in the morning at the windows though. Suspect the birds built their nests there. The bathroom was kinda small.

A mixed experience
The room we had at Long Villa Guesthouse (fan, private bathroom, tv- US$4) was acceptable for the price. The main problem was that the hotel sent several touts to the bus station that pressed and pressed us into coming to the guesthouse. We decided to look at a couple of others on our own first and they were quite rude to us at that point. Later, when we ended up staying at their hotel anyway, there was a fair amount of pressure to take a tour, as well as use their other services. All in all, though, a decent budget place.
