Perfect stay! Our favourite hotel in 3 weeks of travelling around Sri Lanka. Lovey leafy setting close to the beach but far enough away to be peaceful. Lovely pool, excellent restaurant with some of the best food we have had since being here, lovely clean room with four poster bed, safe, toiletries, great shower and decent wifi (although it kept...

We had a family room and it was beautiful. The beds were very inviting and the staff were very friendly. They were kind enough to let us use a room with shower facilities as we were checking out late. The pool was really nice. Breakfast was ok i think it could do with more variety. It's close walk to the...

A quiet accommodation within an easy walk of harbour and town. We stayed in an upstairs room overlooking the pool. The room was really pleasant with a comfy bed and a good shower room. The addition of a fridge was great. The breakfast was very good and served by excellent staff. All staff here are pleasant and helpful. Happy to...

The hotel is in a good location, along one of the residential streets near the beach. There's parking within the hotel grounds. We walked easily to and from the beach, and also back from the harbour. On arrival we had a welcome drink and were met with very sweet service from the girl on reception and the other staff. We...

We've traveled to over 60 countries so hopefully that'll say something about our experiences. This review is mainly for their customer service versus the actual room and hotel. With that said, I will comment about the standard room that we stayed in, which we stayed in two separate standard rooms as the receptionist (Rowani) was kind enough to realize we...

During our stay in Mirissa we stayed 2 nights at this hotel. We had the Deluxe room, so cannot comment on standard room. Room itself was good and had a nice balcony also. Noise insulation to adjoining rooms is a bit poor. Location is a few minute walk from the main beach. Hotel also has own tuk-tuk at your service...

We stayed in a one of the standard rooms within the main building for one night in August. Unfortunately the room did not look as nice as in the pictures published on the internet. The room was smelling musty and was noisy as it is just off the main hall and reception area. There was a very uninspiring courtyard attached...

Had a great stay here for 3 nights - there were 4 of us and we picked a family room so we could all stay together. The room was huge with an enormous bathroom too. The staff were so friendly and helpful!

We stayed here for one night. The hotel is quaint with a lovely pool and lovely staff. It is about a seven minute walk to the beach and a ten minute walk to the harbour. The rooms were comfortable with a nice balcony overlooking the pool. Breakfast was included and was a nice start to the day. Great value for...
