The Beach House
Ranked #6 of 57 Kep B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 December 2010

When you first arrive, finding a good place to stay in Kep which doesn't cost an unreasonable amount is not easy. The problem is that the hotels are spread out so its not possible to walk around and check out a range of them.

The pool area, at the Beach House though small, is the highlight. It overlooks the sea and is lovely to sit around and relax. The food was good at the hotel (though there is nothing to beat Breezes which is down the road and offers a free tuk-tuk service from your hotel).

At the Beach House, as a family of four, we went for the Family Room - two double rooms seemed to cost a lot for what you got. The family room is around the back which has two downsides - the first is that it has no view (the other rooms overlook the sea). The other downside is that you have to walk past what looks to be a rubbish tip to get to the room (the tip is in the adjacent property and a couple of storeys down). The family room itself was clean and has two rooms - so the kids are in one room and the parents another. The bathroom is nothing to write home about - but adequate enough.

The Beach House's location is near the main centre (though there is really not much there) and too far to walk at night with kids to the Crab Market (we tried it and it is not recommended). There are heaps of Tuk-Tuks so getting around is easy enough.

Kep is wonderfully calm and is a real gem slightly off the main Cambodian tourist path. It is also a great place to stop for a couple of days if you want to travel overland from Phnom Penh to Phu Quoc (in Vietnam).

I would describe this place as only OK. I did enjoy their pool area with massage chairs out and the free wifi (what a relief!). However, the rooms were only average - Ive had a person on the tour reporting that his door lock did not work. It also didnt seem very secure as the door were just the sliding doors 'hook lock' - easily undone and unlocked by an intruder. The deco inside were minimal and nothing to shout about but all in all Ive had no complaints. there is a nice view of the ocean from the room no. 1-3.

Kep is developing as a beautiful seaside holiday location and the Beach House is in an ideal location. We had an ideal experience and can recommend the resort for individuals or families. There is areas the management need to work on though. Small maintenance issues need to be addressed as they can have an affect on the overall rating.

After looking at a number of places in Kep (some full, some scabby & some lovely but v expensive) we decided to stay here.
It has a good location v close to the beach & an easy walk to the Crab Market. Lovely sunsets from the upper terraces.
Small but welcome pool. Free wifi at the bar.

The Beach House is in a good location, overlooking the central beach area and a square where Cambodian families gather for a picnic on the weekend. It's also close to the start of the walk around the hill behind the hotel which is a must.

The pool area (very small pool) is a nice place to relax with a beer in the evening and the staff are all helpful and attentive.

The problems that I found were:

1. Water on the floor in the bathroom didn't drain well at all which meant a cold pool of water that I had to step in whenever I needed to go to the bathroom
2. The sliding, external door was fairly stiff and made a maddening screech each time it was opened (probably worse for my neighbors than me.
3. The food is pretty terrible. I only had a snack in the evening and some breakfast, but both were enough to put me off trying any other food there. Greasy and flavorless.

Asides from this, the hotel is not bad, it's just disappointing to see places like this that are so close to getting it right, but take their eye off the ball on some quite important things.
