Me and my husband stayed here for one night on 30/31 weekend. Checkin was fast and the lobby filled with cinnamon smell was a refresher. Staff were helpful and attentive. We booked a superior standard room and it was ok. Old room renovated but you can see its old. I must say that bathroom was pretty bad. Wash basin and... More

We spent 2 days at this Bentota Beach Hotel August 16-17. The Hotel /rooms were old and rusty, and the smell of new paint was overwhelming. The staff was poorly informed about Water Sports activities for which we had paid in advance, despite our travel agent talking with them on the phone, and assuring us the issue had been sorted...

We have stayed at BBH before and indeed this is a hotel our family members tend to stay whenever possible. The staff are so obliging, discrete and always willing to assist. The hotel itself is some 40+ years old and the last major refurbishment was some 14 years ago. It is amazing how the team of staff make the guests... More

We booked a room in this hotel through Agoda and got a very good deal (49% off). We were given a room in the North wing on the lower ground floor, the verandah opened up directly into the garden giving us direct access to the beach. We really couldn't have asked for anything more. its a good idea to go... More

As others have said this hotel is a little tired, but tropical climates do that to buildings. We had WI-FI in the room but like other places it came and went. We were on the reception level overlooking the gardens. I did enjoy sitting on the balcony looking over the trees (photo attached). The buffet was okay, however the staff... More

Everything about it is old (TV, Towels, Bathrobe, even the key tag etc). Bad bathroom (I do not want to talk about it). Nice beach. Good food (But fruits and crabs... More
