A superb welcome from the owner and his family. We stayed an extra 3 nights because of the the environment that they create. The hotel is modern, very clean and the home cooked food is really good. Weligama is near enough to walk to but far enough away not to hear. It is a proper working town no fancy bars...

Good mix of hotel and family guesthouse. Nice owners. AC and cheaper non-AC rooms available. Good place to relax away from the town however it is a bit noisy because of the close main road. A tuk tuk to the beach costs around 150 rupies. But best of all was the FOOD - WE LOVED IT (especially the SriLankan breakfast,...

What a wonderful find! This family run guest house is clean and the owners are wonderful. From tuk tuks, to restaurant recommendations, local knowledge and onward travel assistance, the family do it all for you. The owner too is a wonderful chef and cooks to order. Clean, comfortable, fresh and friendly. Highly recommended!

This family-owned and run hotel has a lot of charm. It was designed and is run by the proprietor who used to work in larger hotels in Sri Lanka. The rooms are spacious, clean and nicely furnished with good quality locally-made Sri Lanka furniture. There is a nice roof terrace and plenty of seating areas. The hotel is about 100m...

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights and it is perfect as base for trips to the beaches and surfing spots closeby. The manager and his wife are very friendly and helpful and arrange everything you want them to. The food is excellent! The rooms are basic but clean and nice. The value for money is definately great!

Stayed here in August 2015. The owners made this place a great place to stay! When we arrived we ordered some food, which was directly home made by 'amma' (mother) in the kitchen. Even though it took a while, the gesture and taste was great! We rented a scooter for half a day, which turned out to be the scooter...
