Robinhill Suites
Ranked #27 of 100 Weligama B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 April 2012

Robin Hill is a tastefully restored Governor's Villa, about 5 minutes walk from Weligama town and the Beach. The rooms are very well presented and there is a completely relaxed feel about the whole place. Weligama is a fishing village, so the beach isn't great, but it's only a short hop to Marissa, which has a lovely beach.

That's the boring bit - what sets this place apart is the service! This is more like a home-stay than a guest house, with only one group of guests at a time.This you means you receive an exclusive and personal 'butler' service from Nuwan (the owner - who is a fountain of knowledge) and the Sri Lankan food that Prema provides for breakfast and in the evening is simply magical.

The evening meal takes around 4-5 hours to prepare, so you need to request in advance, and is all done from fresh ingredients, many of them grown organically from the garden. This knocks the socks off most of the food you will get served in restaurants and is highly recommended.

The only down-side to this is, as you would guess, the price. At $75 per person, per night, in Sri Lanka terms it isn't cheap (of course these costs may change in the future, but this is what it cost us). However this kind of exclusive service if experienced elsewhere would cost considerably more.

The only other comment is that there is no Air-Con. When we stayed it was very hot, which meant that even with the fans blowing the room was quite stuffy (we were on the ground floor). There is an upstairs room which seemed much more airy, but this was undergoing repairs when we stayed, so I can't comment on what this was like in the evenings.

This was a relaively minor concern though, which can easily be put into context as I would definitely consider staying here again when I next visit Sri Lanka.

Room Tip: There is an upstairs suite that seemed very airy and the best choice. This wasn't available when...

Robin Hill is a beautiful restored villa where you feel like the master of a specious house where every activity has its own well designed space: large bedroom, beautiful dining room, luxurious salon and quiet courtyard to read and relax. The service is butler like and the food delicious.
The house is in a suburb of a small lifely fishers town so there is lots to experience of genuine Srilanka life during walks. Situated in town also produces some noise from traffic but everybody goes to sleep after nine it seems.
Waligama has a beautiful wide bay but no bathing beach. 10 minutes with a tuk-tuk brings one to a superb beach and Galle is only half an hour away.
