We stayed this place for 2 nights. Dirty room and bathroom . Over prised, the pool is dirty with no water testing. So you need to find a doctor to treat skin rash if you had a dip. If you have problem with your legs avid this place lot of uneven and climbing stairs is hazardous, dangerous, a dirty dog living in this property, very dangerous for family with kids because if this dog bites you you need injections for rabies. No windows and missteps of room furniture is crumlpling. No relevance for the name Nippon, if a Japanese stays here he will do hara KICI for the shame. Staff was arrogant n rude,

Great location and beautiful view from the hotel.Staff was very friendly and polite.Breakfast was ok but the same eveyday.They need to improve choice of food a little bit.The tables were we have breakfast was often dirty and you need to ask the staff to clean it everytime.
The room was a bit smelly,very dark and moist. You felt it was kind of dirty.They change the bed sheets almost everyday but the sheets were stained every time.The curtains in the room was dirty and stinky. The bathroom was not very clean also, esspecially the shower. The water in the shower smells very bad.
The walls were paper thin and you you could hear everything from guests returning late at night..
Pool is the grossest thing that i have ever seen in my life.Oil stains was in the surface all the time.You can smell chlorine so hard.They dont know how to clean it properly so they put some chemicals without a mesure.Water in the pool wasn't clear at all.Not safe for swiming! Pool area is outdated so they can improve that a little bit because they have a really nice view from the hotel.Beach in front of the hotel is not for swiming because of the coral reef but Narigama beach is in walking distance.

I'm aware this is a sort of budget hotel, but it was simply not living up to the standard. The women at the check in was nice though. They had a large dog that seemed nice, but it's not really something you want to have running around when you're in a hotel. The kids got a bit frightened.

The location is nice with good ocean view from the pool area. The pool area is very old and not very nice, except for the view.

The room was a bit smelly, dark and moist. You felt it was kind of dirty. The bathroom was disgusting the shower did not work properly.
The walls were paper thin and you you could hear everything from guests returning late at night. Pretty annoying.

Breakfast was pretty gross and nothing to choose between. Not that I expected a large delicious breakfast buffet, but I really lost my appetite here. Just not very nice.

I have tried many simple hotels and fully understand that some hotels are basic and I should lower my expectations. But this was just too lousy and considered the price was really not that low, it was really a disappointment.
There's certainly room for improvement, because the location is nice and it has potential. But they need to shape up on the rooms, the cleaning, the pool area and certainly the breakfast.

Rooms are ok as a budget villa in Sri Lanka. But I'm not happy with the hygiene of the pool. When we were in the pool, water from the drains of 1st floor drops to the side of the pool and flowed in to the pool. Beach right in front of the villa is not recommended for swimming, but Narigama surfing beach is with in walking distance.
