We stood for 2 times at this guesthouse. Very friendly people! Clean room and shower. Including fan and airco. No hot water, but it was oke because it was hot outside! Nice garden including monkeys in the trees! You are in one minute on the beach and at the restaurants.

We stayed three nights at the Weliwatta in one of their A/C rooms. The room was comfortable but only superficially clean. Sheets could have used a bleaching and slightly rusty bathroom tap with a water bottle cap cover was strange. Very good mosquito net. A basic breakfast is included, during which the owner watches you eat by sitting at the... More

Found this place through vista rooms. Lovely house run by a charming family who are super helpful. Breakfast is included and the rooms were spacious with air conditioning. Great balcony with greenery and still only a 5min walk to the beach. The owner even dropped us to Mirrisa and then drove us to Colombo! You can also see monitor lizards... More

Lovely place and very helpful staff. The manager helped us arrange whale watching, nature park visit and transport to Ella. Great terrace, where you can watch the monkeys in the morning. Good shower and included breakfast.

Lovely, lovely guesthouse within a large garden, very close to the beach. Very relaxing. We had one of the newer rooms with AC, and our two boys (8 and 10) loved watching the wildlife from the patio. Beautiful birds, monkeys stealing bananas, monitor lizards and even a woodpecker. The owners and their family are fantastic. Booked in for three nights... More

Nimal and Ira have been running this delightful Guest House for 23 years now. They have recently invested some money and added additional rooms and the overall quality has increased appreciably as a result. There is great water pressure in the showers and the Wi-Fi works very efficiently. Breakfast is a real treat in the open air dining area with... More

Nice spacious AC rooms included clean bathroom, with a balcony in the shade of Palm trees. Descent breakfast served by the helpful friendly staff. A little diamond in a quiet street close to the beach of Unawatuna! Book in advance and have a wonderful stay at Weliwatta House!

Weliwatta is a beautiful colonial style house just a few minutes away from the beach. Quaint furniture, spotless rooms, lovely garden and great breakfast. But what is better than all this is the warmth of the family which runs the place. The owner even offered to drop us to the railway station at 3 AM if we didn't find a... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. Very friendly service. I can definately recommand this place. The food quality was also good. Price-Value was absolutely ok! Location was very good, beacause it was close to the beach but still very quit. You can also go on a hike to Jungle Beach.
