Had a pleasant stay at this hotel and enjoyed every moment of it. Three minutes walk down to the beach and very convenient. Had an awesome breakfast. The food was delicious. The room was very spacious and the terrace was great. Will recommend this place to anyone looking for a comfortable stay.

Awesome place. Super clean and spacious rooms and bathrooms. Even got toilet paper and a wrapped soap. Comfy beds. Very nice, forthcoming and helpful staff. Definitely get some Sri Lankan rice and curry-delicious! Right by the beach. Free wifi. Would only come back here!

This place has pretty good value for money. The constant train noise can be slightly annoying but the place was good. The rooms were clean and simple. It's obviously not a 5 star establishment so one shouldn't go there expecting 5 star services. But the receptionist was friendly and we had a quiet and undisturbed stay, apart from a minor...

Came back again to OV. This time only for 01 night that too late check-in. It still felt good and I got a good night's sleep. As usual the bread and curry breakfast was great and the usual customized service I receive was delivered. Would have loved to stay a couple of days more but couldn't. Will come back to...

Planned to stopover at Mount Lavinia for two nights before heading south but ended up returning to the hotel for a total of nine nights. We were recommended to the hotel by a veteran traveler (good friend) who regularly users this hotel as a transit. Wasn't keen in staying as there was no pool but ended up staying here anyway...

If you want clean rooms, excellent but simple food, honest staff (you see the same people year after year) then this is what visitin Sri Lanka is all about. The views from the rooms, especially the...

a nice and clean affordable place. Very friendly and helpful staff. We started and finished our trip there. Great view from our room and within a minute you're on the beach. As elsewhere in mount lavinia you can hear the train cause it's close to the railway. So you just wake up early and you've got more time to enjoy...

Visited the place again for some food. Enjoyed a String Hoppers and Curry which was really good! The red String Hoppers (also the white ones) have to be ordered early. Don't forget to tell the service personnel if youwould like the curries "hot" or "mild"!

“Get a room facing the beach.”

“If you are on long stay ask for a sea view room on the top floor as the train sound is less. Let them know what you prefer to eat if it is not in the menu.”

“Request for a top floor room as the sunset is visible and the sea breeze is good, always ask Mr. Rohan or Hillary for advice if you are unsure on any aspect.”
