It was a great stay from start to finish. I met up friends from the UK for a few days & we had a wonderful time. Everyone was so friendly & welcoming from airport pick right through to the drop off. Rooms were clean & welcoming & I would recommend this guest house to anyone. Food was wonderful & nothing... More

We visited Sri Lanka back in February! Can honestly say these reviews don't lie! One of the most welcoming guest houses we have been too! Donna and the family were so welcoming and would do anything for you! From the arrival to taking us on trips to the fantastic breakfasts and evening meal it was all a pleasure for them... More

We stayed here for 4 nights before a marathon trip around SL with friends. I had wondered if the accommodation would live up to the previous reports - no need for any worries, it did that and more. From the pick up at the airport, everything went smoothly - our room (Jasmine) was exactly as described, spotlessly clean and the... More

From the moment of booking until we left, we had nothing but an outstanding experience with Sri Lancashire Guest House. Initial reservations via email with Donna were friendly and accommodating and arriving there felt like we had walked into a little piece of paradise with a welcome drink at the end of their little pier. Our room had it's own... More

In Sri Lancashire they really know how to welcome their guests. Even the communication before and after my stay with the owner Donna was very pleasant. I really liked the place and my room Lotus which has it’s own terrace with dining table and chairs, hammock and sun beds with towels. Shower is good with plenty of hot water (you... More

stayed here for three nights to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and we were totally blown away by the place. We were met with Garlands and drinks by Wasantha and Nishanthi and taken onto the jetty overlooking the river. We stayed in the Jasmine room with its own sun deck and sun beds and amazing views overlooking the river.The room... More

We only stayed for one night at Sri Lancashire, but this was definitely the loveliest place that we stayed in during our whole trip. When you arrive you are greeted with garlands, drinks and smiles - what a great start. The setting is so idyllic and peaceful beside the calm part of Bentota river, so take time to just relax...

Passing through the gates of the Sri Lancashire Guest-House you enter a tranquil and totally relaxing experience. Wasantha and Nishanthi immediately make you feel like very special and long awaited guests. They run this beautiful guesthouse with great attention to every detail. Wasantha takes you every place you want to go to in his tuk-tuk, nothing is too much trouble.... More

I highly recommend this amazing guesthouse. My boyfriend and I stayed here in January and we had such a lovely time. A real highlight of our 4 month travels. The house is by the river and it is stunning. The hosts are so welcoming, helpful, and fun. The breakfasts were amazing and we were cooked a very tasty dinner one... More
