I stayed at the Boat House for 3 nights and would highly recommend this place. The room I stayed in was perfect for someone that wanted a private room, but didn't want to pay extortionate prices. For $15 a night I got a mid-sized private room with air-con, table and chair, and a bathroom - basic, but all you need...

Drink is standard price, food quite selected can be pricy for some dishes. The ambience is awesome, right in front of shelly beach, good view is at the front the front sitting (can be quite warm) and shade area with good vibe is at the back area.

Double AC room was nice, but so many issues came up- the bathroom drain was clogged, the AC didn't work half the time, etc. The man who runs the place helped out a lot and gave us a small discount because the AC didn't work. The staff who work at the restaurant and bar though were not particularly friendly- they...

I had a meal and a couple of drinks here one night. The food and drink were lovely but...geez.......the owner could do with some charm lessons. I wasn't sure he was the owner as he rebuffed my couple of limited comments...though he seemed happy enough to chat to guests....all,of whom seemed to be French. I suspect that another reviewer is...

I stayed in two different rooms, for two days and found it to be excellent value for money. Particularly the upper room floor interior, in true indochine style. The GH is very close to the city center and sea. There is no AC, and the fans seem to be old and not very powerful, so I would not personally stay...

It reminds me more of a guest house or hostel as it is relaxed and laid back. We only stayed one night but there was air con and a shower so I was happy. They have a restaurant and bar on site with reasonable prices (the beef pizza with lemon grass was fantastic). They are a french couple that run...

I am sad that I did not spend more than one night at this place and Kep. I was so used to dorm beds that paying $15 for a room with AC was expensive for me. This is a new place started by a French couple. Since this was their first 2-3 months, one or two teething problems might be...

We chose the cheapest room with shared bathroom, and we got what we paid for. The room was very stuffy and mouldy. That said the communal areas wee second to none and we really enjoyed relaxing in the place. Watch out for the numerous bugs which Kep has to offer - loads of frogs in the room! Had breakfast, very...
