Situated at the back of town, though on the same road as a number of other guesthouse (The Butterfly and the Kampot Guesthouse), is the Orchid.

When a couple of us travelled over recently we stayed here and found the guesthouse rooms perfectly adequate ...... at only 5 dollars, you don't expect much, but what we had were clean and comfortable 'Fan rooms'.

You can pay more for Air Con rooms, and up to 15 dollars for one of the Bungalows however.

They have a restaurant onsite that seemed pretty popular with guests staying elsewhere. The food was good value and they had a pretty good selection.

I'd be quite happy to stay here again.

I ended up in Kampot a few years ago.
I ended up talking to a man called Christen.
He was a Man U supporter.
The bar was called Key Hole.
I ended up all over the place.
I was looking for a red light.
I ended up in a microlight.
It sacred me.

Place seemed fine, now you mention it, I think I do remember there being boxes at reception .... though I never used them.

Personally I prefer to keep the strap of my rucksack tied to my wrist in smaller guesthouses, lol

He does great ribs. Order the half serve unless you have a stomach like a whale!

I went for those and he let me take away the leftovers.
Which was basically a cow.

Did you ever go up in the microlight?

Some crazy (but nice) American was running it.
You get to fly down the river.
I saw Christians wife and waved - she waved back.
It was a strange day

No never did that. Is it still 'flying'. I did hear you could float down the river in an innertube from near the rapids, all the way to town. Apparently some riverside Khmer bars would see you and throw out a rope and pull you in for a cool ale or 3. I'd like to try that.

I would like to try that as well.
Not sure what happened to the Yank.
I was in Kampot drinking at the Key Hole.
I was with Aussie Tony.
A stupid name but if you live in England and are An Australian - you get a stupid name.
We spotted the plane but it left before we could catch it.
Christian had his number.
We called him and he said he would pick us up at 6.00am the next day.
The price was $200 for two people.
He turned up at 6.00am.
He took us in his car - with the plane towed behind.
He was living in it - the place was a mess.
There was a girl in there as well.
After about an hour we ended up in a farmers field.
This plane had three wheels and a massive propeller at the back.
Besides the piliot there was only room for one person.
Right in front of the propeller.
Sacred the hell out of me - the landing was the worse.
Christian was playing silly buggers - riding his bike in a Dearth Vader helmet at 100 mph.
