We stayed 3 nights here and were fairly satisfied overall. Staff were pleasant and helpful, breakfast was good, and the location is great, a stone throw from the beach in a really narrow laneway. Restaurants and bars are very close, everything is just a short walk away. Room is comfortable, although our's was infested with mosquitos when we checked in,...

We stayed here a week and definitely would return. The hotel is impeccably clean. Rooms were small but we spent most of our time at the beach. It was just feet from the beach but separated by just enough space that the beach partygoers were not a problem at night. Breakfast was large and delicious. Internet was reliable and pretty...

I travelled here solo, I pre-booked a balcony room and on arrival the owner tried to give me a different room on the ground floor (which is not what I booked), and tried to tell me that there were no other rooms available. After I refused to accept this, he admitted there was a balcony room and moved me into...

Stayed for three nights in January with three other people. Excellent central location. Staff there were lovely, we were always offered extra at breakfast and on our last day we didn't leave until five pm. The hotel allowed us to leave our bags but also let us use a shower and provided towels for us. Very generous and much appreciated....

Chose this location because of other reviews that enjoyed the hospitality of the brothers who run this hotel. We were not disappointed, they were welcoming,friendly, and went out of their way to provide all that we asked for. The location is very well-kept and the rooms were very clean, breakfast was also very good. Our time was over New Year's...

Stayed last week and had a lovely time. The location is fantastic, rooms are large and practical - mossie nets, clothes racks, hot water, even a fridge. Breakfast is generous -the toast is bakery bread kind and is great. The hosts offer the best of Sri Lankan hospitality. They arranged a driver for us at very short notice, and allowed...

We stayed here for 2 nights to do some diving in the area. It's the perfect place to enjoy the beach and relax. Rooms are exactly what you want- a comfortable bed, hot shower, fridge etc. Owners are extremely friendly and hospitable. They will happily arrange transfers/trips for a good price.

We had a great stay☺️Made the booking through booking.com just one hour before arriving the hotel and when we arrived,we where already expected. Friendly staff, comfortable beds, mosquito nets, clean and good standard. The breakfast was good, but with the original toast, egg, jam, butter, juice and fruit. Though it was the best breakfast so far in Sri Lanka. Just...
