The Guest House is situated away from the main road and therefore very quiet and restful. It is surrounded by a spacious garden of trees and flowering plants and therefore has many bird visitors. There are also ample parking spaces for vehicles. For sun and sea enthusiasts, the famous beaches of Passikudah with their collection of restaurants and specialist hot...

This guest house with 12 bedrooms is excellent value for money, the rooms all have a/c and fan with hot water in the bathrooms. There is ample parking if you use your own transport and a very good room for your driver (which is free) or the owner will arrange for you to be collected at the railway station. The...

Clean quiet & spacious room, lovely view of the garden. Short walk or tuk tuk ride to both passikudah & Kalkudah beaches. Fabulous food- the best we had in SL so far. We would highly recommend this place

Every time we travel to Passi we never forget to have a meal at Nandavanam. The food is awesome and will comeback again. The taste is matchless. Their crab curry and prawn deviled is the best. And of course the Dhal curry.

Excellent place to stay near the beach (1.5 km). Fine breakfast & dinner, very nice staff! To go to the beach, just order a tuk tuk or walk (20 minutes). Rooms with AC and Ventilator, very quiet. We would come back.

Pasikuda is replete with 5 star luxury accommodation charging in excess of $200 a night. We looked at some of them and they are great. However we didn't have the money to spend so Nandawanam Guest House proved an excellent choice. We had a family room which was big enough for a family of 4 (kids 6 and 3 years...

One of my friends in Batticaloa recommended this place for us.. First of all, this is not a star class hotel, but a well maintained guest house located in a convenient location.. about 1 k.m. from the main public entrance of the Passikudah beach.. Room was clean, spacious & good.. you can order food according to your preference in advance.....

Stayed 2 nights with family and would recommend to anyone without any hesitation. Spacious rooms with a huge balcony. Niroshan, the owner was very friendly as well as the staff, especially Ramesh. We wanted to leave at 4.00 a.m. on the last day, and Ramesh was ever willing to open the gates for us despite him going to bed late...

We had an excellent authentic Sri Lankan sea food dinner of Pittu with a portion of grilled Jumbo prawns and spicy Crab curry. The Crab was superb and very spicy. The grilled Jumbo prawns was delicious too, but it looked a bit overprized as there were only 3 prawns for 1000 ruppees. But altogether we enjoyed the dinner. If you...

This is a family owned guest house. We did not stay here, but the location and rooms are good value for money to budget travelers. It is not near a beach, but is a 10 minute tuktuk ride to the public beach. The reviewer who made adverse observations as to the staff's lack of knowledge should not expect 5star level...
