We had high hopes for this place due to a high Agoda rating but it didn't quite measure up exactly. The room itself was spacious, clean and well-furnished. Bonus was a fan in addition to the A/C as well as many tourist books and brocuhures for the area and even for Kampot & Sihanoukville. 2nd floor balcony with table & chairs was a very nice touch. The wife was very kind and offered lovely conversation and also helped us book a bus to leave town (the husband was more apathetic).
However, the bathroom had a not-so-pleasant odour and was definitely in need of a renovation. The A/C drain was in the bathroom which would leak across the entire floor and keep it wet all the time. The family's children would be up quite early and would play very loudly on the lawn in front of the rooms, waking us up around 7AM. We tried to rent a scooter through the hotel but both of the scooters they had to offer were in unsafe mechanical condition, so we had to rent from elsewhere (for cheaper, anyways). Lastly, on our last night of 3 nights there, we discovered our door didn't lock properly and could be opened without a key! Very alarming.
TIPS: The location is a bit of a distance from the proper beach but definitely within walking distance from "The Harbour" (across the street) which offers some epic sunsets with no purchase required. Also, food was cheap and delicious at the "Gift & Souvenir Shop" just a 3 minute walk southwards once you hit the main road.

service, clean, comfortable
Almost 'perfect'. Only problem was some construction work & I was after somewhere very quiet. Owner & agoda agreed to refund advanced payment so I was able to move without any problem. Owner/manager, Jan, couldnt be more helpful, sympathetic & sweet natured. Even free transfer to new guesthouse. I would come back in the future. Well priced & value for money. Well situated if you want to be out of the bustle.

A wonderful hidden gem in the Kep hills”
New facilities, friendly and helpful staff, very good value for money
We had a great stay at Kep Arunrass Hotel. The place is new and so there are a few kinks that they're still working out regarding detailing in the rooms, but overall we were very impressed at the value provided for the low-season cost. Our room was large with a huge balcony, the building and grounds are new and clean, and the owner/manager is great and eager to please. The free bicycles for rent were a nice touch and we used them to explore the nearby national park as well as to ride around the area. The only downside to Kep Arunrass is that its location puts it a bit out in the middle of nowhere, so whether you want a seafood dinner or just a cold drink, you'll have to either walk the 10-15 minutes to the crab market or take a tuk tuk (readily available at the market to come back, but only found at the intersection when you head out). Not a long walk, and the free bike use more than makes up for it. Our favorite place we stayed at in Kep!

Amazing hotel at a great value”
Value, staff, cleanliness
Overall, I must say that my stay at this hotel was absolutely amazing. It is a quiet, clean, well maintained hotel. The staff are great and are willing to help you at any chance they get. The location is good and it is a short bicycle ride to the crab market. The wifi works really well and the air conditioning was fully functional. There was hot water in the shower and a great balcony that overlooked the ocean. In conclusion, I would strongly recommend that you stay at this hotel.

Breakfast was great, amazing pancakes and omelette, and very reasonably priced.
Owner is super friendly and helpful.

Great little place with the nicest staff!”
staff, pillows, and bikes
my stay was lovely. The hotel is just out of town in the forest. The lady who runs the hotel might be the sweetest person I have ever met. Room was clean and cozy and I would have stayed longer if i could.

Great value and nice and clean!”
The staff, price and the clean bed
We had a great stay. The owner is so lovely and made us feel very welcome. She also assisted us with booking a day trip to Rabbit Island and bus to Siem Reap. The location is great, only 10 minutes walk to the crab market. After staying at a few rough hostels in other parts of Cambodia I was excited to arrive at a place that had a hot and cold water shower. The rooms were clean and the daily water was a bonus. Such great value.
