                This place has an excellent homely feel. The staff are really friendly and will go the extra mile to help you out. The rooms are lovely. Lots of individual touches in a very characterful and well maintained French colonial building. Breakfast was also really fresh and quite delicious. Only downside was the aircon was not the most effective. Still comfortable though.

                Best breakfast!!”
                I’d come back just for the breakfast! Honestly was delicious and good quantity. You order from a menu, which had lots of options, but also given a bakery selection and juice and coffee/tea. Room was lovely and had a cute little balcony. Very clean. Great TV with English channels. I particularly liked that the toilet and shower were in different rooms. Staff were absolutely amazing and so welcoming. Location was great too..a short walk to most places of interest!

                Everyone and everthing about this establishment was perfect. They have built a lovely hotel from the shambles that were once there. Some may find the noise from the town & surrounding cafes a teeny bit annoying at night but they do eventually turn off the music.

                The Columns is one (or three) old houses revitalised as a small hotel offering a dozen or so rooms over three or four floor. My room had a tiny sunny balcony overlooking the street, and the hotel is just a short stroll away from the river, many restaurants, many massage places, and a couple of small supermarkets. Breakfasts are very good and the helpful staff will call a taxi or a motorbike for you to go on to your next destination. Lovely.

                A Little Charm at Good Value”
                The Columns Hotel is a charming colonial era shopfront turned hotel and a good amount of the period features have been retained. The room, while not especially steeped in history, was large and comfortable (though there were a few omissions such as a hairdryer). The staff and food served at the hotel were both excellent, and it was nice to see some environmentally-friendly options where you're not insistent on having your linen changed every single day (you wouldn't at home, would you?).

                I really enjoyed The Columns, the opportunity to live in an old building in Kampot for a few days. Very comfortable even if the bed is perhaps a bit too soft, nothing serious. Good breakfast, perfect location. Maybe more information available about the building could be interesting. Tastefully decorated, simple and beautiful. Very nice staff.

                This hotel is a real gem. The reception/dining area is an outstanding example of French elegance. Staff are very courteous and pleasant. The French theme continues upstairs with very comfortable and clean rooms. Breakfast comes with choice - each dish has a touch of class. Although only a short distance to the river side quay, this hotel has to be on one of the quietist streets in all of SE Asia. In the whole of one hour I counted 1 car, 5 tuk-tuks and 12 pedestrians!

                Although including a few quirks (unstable hot/cold water adjustment, steep stairs, limited menu at breaKfast and lunch, none at dinner), this hotel was far and beyond what I expected to find in Kampot. Charming, tasteful, and anxious to please, The Columns was a real treat. If you can afford it, well worth the price. I most certainly would stay here again...

By far the best Khmer managed hotel I have ever stayed in and will certainly stay again on our next visit to Kampot. We only stayed here by chance as our regular 'choices' were booked out but I rate this in the top 3 Kampot hotels on par with Rikitikitavi and La Java Blu

                My stay at this hotel was unfortunately only for the one night as it's and excellent hotel and great little quiet city. Don't be fazed about the hotel being located down a little street just of the riverfront as it's excellent. Staff were very friendly and excellent helping me with planning my travels, tour and speed of checking in/out. My room was great, large, clean, comfortable bed and I had a private balcony. My only gripe which honestly didn't bother me that much as it was quite warm anyways was the water was only warm, not very hot. Overall it was a great stay, great little quite city and I would definitely recommend staying here.

The staff are all very friendly and helpful and there were no issues communicating (occasionally an issue at B&B's/guesthouses). The place seems rather busy as there were quite a few guests there and the rooms were at full occupancy when we stayed.

                Breakfast cooked to order. Bed very comfortable. Staff were lovely.
                Given the constraints of working within an old building, they have done well. Shower is in a separate booth as is the WC. Wash basin is against one wall. Not a lot of hanging space, but you can survive. I am not sure if the balcony adds much. No lift but staff help is available. Breakfast is cooked to order and done very well. Kampot is a great town and the city is easily walkable.
