We had a wonderful time there. The rooms are clean and cosy. The family there is really adorable and the food is amazing ! Rice and curry was one of the best we had in Sri Lanka, and the fried rice with prawns was excellent too ! Thanks a lot !

A superb welcome from the owner and his family. We stayed an extra 3 nights because of the the environment that they create. The hotel is modern, very clean and the home cooked food is really good. Weligama is near enough to walk to but far enough away not to hear. It is a proper working town no fancy bars...

Good mix of hotel and family guesthouse. Nice owners. AC and cheaper non-AC rooms available. Good place to relax away from the town however it is a bit noisy because of the close main road. A tuk tuk to the beach costs around 150 rupies. But best of all was the FOOD - WE LOVED IT (especially the SriLankan breakfast,...

What a wonderful find! This family run guest house is clean and the owners are wonderful. From tuk tuks, to restaurant recommendations, local knowledge and onward travel assistance, the family do it all for you. The owner too is a wonderful chef and cooks to order. Clean, comfortable, fresh and friendly. Highly recommended!

This family-owned and run hotel has a lot of charm. It was designed and is run by the proprietor who used to work in larger hotels in Sri Lanka. The rooms are spacious, clean and nicely furnished with good quality locally-made Sri Lanka furniture. There is a nice roof terrace and plenty of seating areas. The hotel is about 100m...
