Everything about this place is lovely. We just happened to pass it by and decided to drop in to say hello, as my boyfriend is a Lancashire boy. Even though we weren't guests, we were invited to stay for dinner and drinks and again the next day to relax in the fabulous gardens. A very peaceful and tranquil setting by... More

I recently visited Sri Lanka and stayed in the beautiful idyllic town of Bentota. I have known the owners of Sri Lancashire guesthouse for many years and yet this was the first chance I had to see them after so long, Alan and Donna couldn't have been more welcoming to us and we were waited on hand and foot by...

The warm atmosphere at Sri Lancashire Guesthouse made us immediately feel at home in a foreign country! In January we had the great opportunity to meet the owners Donna and Alan, who were a very funny and refreshing company. Together with their lovely crew Wasantha, Nishanthi and Chaminda they almost knew way before we knew it ourselfs what we needed... More

Sri Lancashire was awarded with the Tripadvisor certification for Excellence during our stay. Given the incredible service, genuine, warm hospitality and value for money we experienced it was not hard to see why this is the only hotel in Bentota to receive this honour. From the moment Wasantha (a lovely guy who knows everyone you need to know in Bentota... More

Sri Lankashire is just a couple of hour's drive from Colombo airport, and the perfect place to unwind after a long flight. A peaceful spot overlooking the river, with really nothing at all to do except relax, and perhaps take a (free) tuk tuk to the beach. The rooms are nicely decorated and spacious, with a fridge and aircon. But... More

I found this place on Trip Advisor and due to its brilliant reviews I booked independently and easily with the owners via email - please do the same! Within minutes of arriving at the Sri Lancashire after a long journey from the UK this is what we were told "this is your home in Sri Lanka" - and it was... More

Wonderful two night stay here! Spotlessly clean, delicious local cooking (breakfast & dinner) by Nishanti, tuktuk (free) & tours by Wasantha, excellent service from Chaminda. Donna & all should be so proud of what they have achieved. Nothing was too much to ask. We arrived at 6.30am and per room was already ready for that night, plus we were offered... More

We were recommended Sri-Lancashire by friends and we were not disappointed. Even before we arrived, the warm welcoming emails set the scene and made it feel this was a special holiday to look forward to. Alan and Donna have a picturesque spot on the Bentota river which is a perfect spot to watch the sea eagles, water and country wildlife... More
