When we viewed the accommodation and informed the owner it was not suitable for us , his behaviour suddenly changed towards us ( group of 5 people ) .He became aggressive and threatening towards us, he tried to close the metal gates to...

We stayed two nights here and we're looked after so well by the owner, who also cooked us 2 wonderful meals. The room was bright, cheerful and comfortable. Excellent value. We walked easily back from baticaloa, and wandered down to Kallady Beach through the village in the evening. Thank you for looking after us so well.

The owner was very friendly and made us feel welcome, the triple room is small for three people but at around £5 each you can't complain and has A/C which is very welcome at this time of year in Batti. Thanks!

We were moved to a nearby hotel by the friendly but pushy owner. The nearby hotel was one we had decided not to stay at already and after quite a bit of negotiation on price we agreed to stay, mainly due to tiredness on our part. The owner of hamsaam seemed more interested in us staying at his friend's place... More

Mr & Mrs Anandaraj were so hospitable. The meals were excellent and the rooms clean and comfortable. The couple even accompanied us as our guides and showed us many places of interest. We hope to visit Hamsavilla sometime after July, to savour more of Mrs. Anandaraj's prawn curry and coconut sambol

This is a small hotel, almost a home stay. It is immaculate clean and well furnished. And quiet. The family could not be more helpful. It is an deal place to spend a couple of nights, and the owner will pick you up from the bus or train station. Batticaloa is a pleasant city, but lacks a lot of places... More
