This tiny hotel sits in a beautiful location overlooking the river. There are only 4 rooms so it feels like staying in someone's house. The owners are delightful. It's a very pleasant 15 minutes walk to the beach. We stayed with 2 kids aged 2 and 5. As of February, the Family suite wasn't ready yet so we stayed in... More

This was our guest house for our final two nights in Sri Lanka and we are so glad we chose to stay here. Mr Kumara was an excellent host and the propert U.S. kept immaculate. Our room which was lovely, with all amenities had a lovely terrace overlooking the river. A wee gem! We ate there on our final evening... More

This child-friendly inn is very clean and comfortable with the superb river view and and a nice garden. The owner is a very honest friendly person that made us feel at home every day for a week. He is also an excellent cook. This place is a gem!!!

Nice riverfront yard with a coconut tree , simple and convenient rooms ... Don't forget to ask the owner "Kumar" for a seafood meal. 20 minutes walk to Avani hotel beach and the two stories bar "The Loft" with nice ocean view.

There are not many hotels that deserve the review of perfect, but this is surely one. Set on the banks of the Bentota River, a location far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close to everything. A host (Kumara) and staff always there but not on top of you. A room with all the mod cons you would... More

My wife and I stayed for three nights in January 2015. As we travelled through Bentota and turned off the main road our expectations plummeted as we meandered past rundown buildings alongside the narrow track. Then suddenly we stopped outside what looked like a new splendid property with an immaculate forecourt, providing secure parking and a very friendly welcome. We... More

Riverside Inn Fuji is situated on a quiet street, off the main road, right on the river bank. The rooms and the garden are facing spectacular water views. The place and the grounds are kept implacably clean. Guests get personal attention from the owner who is eager to please, and the vibe is very homey. The rooms are plain, simply... More

After a round tour of 14 days, we had here quite a good time for relaxation before departure back home. The hotel is quiet and familiar, the rooms are comfortable and clean. The chief is an excellent cook. We loved it to be here.

My husband and I stayed for two nights on a short trip we took a whim to Bentota. It was just the best experience. From the lovingly cut fresh fruit provided at breakfast, to the calming river touching the property, to the clean rooms and the humble hospitality of Mr.Kumara, the owner, it was a wonderful stay. Mr.Kumara even gave... More
