Reviewed yesterday NEW

A clean and renovated room on the first floor with a ceiling fan. Three people in one room, one king size bed, budget friendly prizes. Free WI-FI worked well, THE BEST SHOWER IN SRI LANKA! Staff was really friendly, breakfast is served but not included in room prize. Taxi services provided. Close to the beach.

I stayed only 2 nights and brought friends to the restaurant twice. The food is traditional Sri Lankan, amazing food at a very reasonable price. The room was beautiful, large clean bathroom. Massive comfy bed with four posts and a mosquito net and a balcony with table and chairs. Perfect for a couple to stay for a week. I'm going...

We stayed there just one night but found it has great value for money. Friendly and helpful staff, spacious room with fan and AC, balcony as well. Great location just few min walk to the beach. Only disadvantage is that it is bit hard to find, good landmark is bridge on main road.

This was a prime example of how accommodating and friendly Sri Lankans are. When we arrived, I was sick and the owner made me ginger tea free of charge, pat me on the back, and ensured we had the nicest room available. The rooms were beautiful, with canopy beds, mosquito nets, and individual decks. Our complaint would be that our...

I don't like leaving bad reviews but we were a group of seven and our rooms were very different from each other. The two couples had amazing rooms, high up with balconies and very airy. However the other three rooms were intolerable. They were so damp, my pillow smelt like it hadn't been washed in a month, the bathroom was...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 9 nights and we absolutely loved it. Not all the rooms are the same, however ours was very spacious and clean. The hosts, Shehan and his lovely mother, were so kind and took great care of us! Mama cooked us some of the best curries we have had in Sri Lanka. She also...

AMAZING place to stay... For the price and what you get I don't think it can be beat ...Location just across the road from one of Sri Lanka's most beautiful and famous beaches and SURF spots , but just far enough away not to hear the traffic😃. The room I stayed in was very clean and well set up ....

we stayed here for 3 nights - the hosts are very warm and lovely people who took very good care of us and made special baby food for our one year old travelling with us. The hostess (Mama) also doubles us as the chef and whips out some absolutely delicious fare. Being a vegeterian means living with compromised options in...
