Kingfisher Hotel was just right! Perfect location on a lovely beach. The food was lovely and the beer cold! The staff were very friendly and attentive. We booked all Four double rooms for our family holiday and what a great time we all had. Would totally recommend.

Stayed here for our last night in Sri Lanka and it is the one place I wouldn't return. Room and view is lovely but for $120 it didn't even include breakfast which I thought was pretty poor. They also charge you extra to use the beach beds even though you are staying in the hotel (and with only 4 rooms...

The hotel is very clean, located on the sea shore, has 4 rooms and the best cuisine in Unawatuna at their restaurant! All rooms are facing the sea, but there are some palms and bushes in front of balcony, so it gives more privacy and a bit less sea view. Though our room #1 on the 3rd floor was perfect!...

Stayed at the Kingfisher from 20-24 Mar.... Great location,right on the beach. Rooms were nicely laid out with a/c. Food was very good, possibly the best restaurant on the beach. The beach bar was fun, especially on Poya days!! Sunbeds always laid out for us wherever and whenever we asked for them. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating....

All I'm going to say is to try their fish dishes because I have dined there a few times and each time I had some kind of a seafood dish and loved it every single time. My partner normally has the salads and other things which are also very good. They have the tables right on the beach and it's...

We stayed for two nights. Our room was spacious, clean and stylish. Bathroom was not smelly and aircondition worked well. We concerned for the noise level as our room was directly above the restaurant. We had restful sleep bith nights. The meals have a reasonable quality, although a bit pricy, we had 3 lunches and two dinners here. You need...

Our stay may be summed up in tre words: staff, service, location. Kingfisher in itself is and could have been the perfect place to stay in Unawatuna. The room is nice (not taking into account the peculiarity that there was no door between the room and the bathroom, a neighbour standing close to our veranda could actually see into the...

A wonderful hotel and we wished to have stayed longer. Beachfront balcony with spacious rooms. The restaurant is packed in the evening. A testament to the quality of the food. It's probably the best place to eat at the beach. Friendly staff and hotel includes all the little things to make your stay wonderful.

We stayed 10 nights here in December and what a little gem this place is. There are only 4 rooms which are well equipped with a TV (which has great reception), a fridge, Tea/kettle, ceiling fan and aircon. The room is pretty spacious opening onto a balcony(sea view) which has a couple of wicker easy chairs and a table. Wifi...
