    A very basic place , no luxury but clean and helpful staff ! Good proximity to near by places. In the centre of mount lavinia so you can stroll around and will have a nice evening .Transport can be arranged by the staff on request.

    Basic guesthouse with friendly staff. No luxury but at a budget price you get all you need. Has a good Wifi connection. Owner is very helpful and provides all the information needed to go around. Close to the beach and the train station.
