Spent 3 nights late january at this amazing place. Neela's was the most perfect place to stay. The staff and the food was perfect as well as the location! The rooms are super clean. A great place for a stay in Hikkaduwa. They also provided with excellent service during my stay. ( organizing airport transfert, etc..)

Super friendly staff, great location, clean, really secure rooms. Our room was on the street side which is a little noisy. Try book the room on the 3Rd floor or rooms 13 or 14 with sea views. Good breakfast options too.

I cannot say something about the guesthouse, because we only had two meals there, but next time we stay in Hikkaduwa, we will definitely rent a room there. The food was DELICIOUS! The staff very friendly and the place finally had good, wooden furniture. Toilet and everything very clean, we were sad we hadn't discovered this place earlier.

I don't understand why this guesthouse has so many 5-star-reviews. It's average and nothing special. The rooms are only cleaned every three days and only if you ask for it. For the price I would expect daily cleaning. The bathrooms smells really bad if you don't leave the window open all the time. Moreover you're not even greeted with a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way back to the airport. We had the "penthouse" room (16) and it was fantastic. All round the food,staff,service,sunsets and beach are all excellent. They even got up at 6.30am so we could have breakfast on our last morning.

We stayed at this guesthouse for one week with a friend. We booked one seaview double and one basic single room - both good value for the money. It's basic, clean, AC and beds have mosquito nets. Seaview room also had refrigerator. They clean the rooms upon request and also provide with beach towels. Service is friendly but you should... More

A huge plus at Neela's is the owning family! All of them and the staff make your stay memorable. They are always there for a nice chat and have an open ear for everything. For example did we like to know, where you could buy some real sri lankan spices, not tourist-packages, so they took us to the place where... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. We had a room reserved which was on the ground level but moved to a room on the 1st floor for some more privacy. Unfortunately there were no sea-view rooms available or any on the top floor. The room was clean, fresh and roomy. The wall sockets are universal which is really handy for charging... More
