Stayed with a group of 14 at the Villa Somphong whilst in LPB in October and we were really happy with the experience. Good guesthouse accommodation for larger groups can be hard to find but this place was a real winner. Rooms were clean, comfortable and of a reasonable size with 6 of them offering a balcony and views over the river. Air-conditioning worked very well although the shower pressure was a little variable - not a big problem though. The remaining rooms offer various views but no balcony. A real bonus with the guesthouse was the courtyard overlooking the river which was also the breakfast area. It is a great communal place with our group able to catch up and chat about the days proceedings. Breakfast itself comprised eggs (fried, scrambled, omlet) or pancakes with banana, plus tropical fruit, baguette, butter, jam, juice and tea/coffee. Tea and coffee was also available during the day from reception for a small price. Those seeking cooler refreshment could purchase drinks from a small shop beneath the annex building - very convenient! The place was very quiet - no surprise given it's proximity to the tip of the peninsula. However, an unusually joyful rooster combined with a special 4am drum solo from the nearby temple managed to interrupt sleep only once or twice. Noi was a great host - offering help with everything including money exchange and laundry and also sharing a traditional Lao breakfast on our final morning. We would definitely stay here again!
