This guest house is close to the beach, and with a nice small garden and rooms, the bed is so big, wifi and hot water bathroom.the house keeper has two cute and beautiful little girls. Love them so much! The place is also quiet. Good choice!

The food at Amarasinghe Guest House is easily the best food in Marissa and certainly worth the 5 min walk from the beach. Take the small path inland by the bridge/river at the Beach. The servings are large, the food is authentic and certainly great value for money at this family run guest house. The owner informed us that all... More

Pros: Close at the beach, large bed and soft pillow Cons (i'm sad to say): No sheets (we got it ourself from the closet) & just 1 towel for 2 persons. There is hardly water coming from the shower. Breakfast was so poor. At 22:00 the power went off, so the fan didn't work for all night. It was sooooooo... More

The room was certainly spacious but smelt musty, and the walls badly needed a coat of paint. The toilet was ensuite, but in a sort of antechamber behind the main room. As a result, the airconditionning could not reach it, so showering in it was like being in a sauna in the May heat. And surprisingly for Sri Lanka for... More

I didn't stay here only came in a few times to eat. The food was the best in Mirissa but the service so slow and unprofessional. So take a good book with you and plenty of humour. I really enjoyed the cookery class, but regretted not having taken notes as the recepies arrived 2 months later in my mail box... More

Pros It is close to the beach Cons Room was cleanish but full of ants. Wi-fi was advertised but didn't work anywhere in the hostel. Mosquito net was full of holes. Room was too hot even with fan running on full. Staff didn't seem to care...we asked for breakfast one day and they just left us sitting there. They have... More

The owner's curries were amazing and so cheap. Place had free wifi and we could use their laptop as well. Helpful people. Only drawback was the room was so hot, even with the ceiling fan running. Room was clean, although the bathroom could be redecorated,

We moved from another guesthouse in Mirissa after discovering the owner ripped us off to the fullest. We were so glad to be here at Amarasinghe's Royal Lodge. Here, we felt totally at ease. The room was relatively clean and the bed was so comfy. The bathroom was equipped with hot water and the pressure was strong. Everybody was so... More

Clean room for 2500 rupi. Good food also for a good price. Nice herb garden. Friendly staff. Small library. no noise because it's 5 min walking from the beach. Just perfect, we stayed for 3 nights. Ps: Next door we bought very cheap spices in a non touristic place.
