This is more of a backpacker's hostel, definitely not a hotel to relax in. There was no sign, so spent 30mins trying to find the place at 1:00am after an international flight was an awful welcome to Sri Lanka. Construction next door meant loud banging early in the morning at 8:00am and then throughout the day...terrible after getting to bed...

Just arriving or about to leave Sri Lanka, this is a great place to stay. 2000-2500 R taxi ride away from the airport [or far cheaper shuttle bus and train.] It is five minutes from a lovey beach for swimming , 15 mins walk from Mount Lavinia train station to get into town....quiet location....lovely rooms and a shared roof terrace...

Simple, aircon rooms. Spacious. Not so simple to find from the train station station - but a tuktuk driver helped us. Close to the beach with its restaurants. Cheap accomodation, good value. Friendly host

All I can say is that Aurora Holiday House is a great place to stay for a short or long visit (see below for types of guests who stay). I stayed here for a little over three months, whilst doing a course at the British Council, Colombo. I was very sad to leave. I make some poor choices usually, but...

Aurora is an excellent choice for accommodation in Mount Lavinia. It’s located roughly 200m from the beach on an anonymous side street. You are still in Sri Lanka so there will still be noices such as dog barking but at least you are away from traffic. I keep coming back to Aurora simply because once I step inside the door...
