We had a room with a balcony and partial sea view which was excellent. Comfy bed, clean and tidy. The staff were amazing and greeted us at midnight and even checked us out at midnight as we had been out having celebration drinks. Such lovely people who are eco friendly and are working on making changes towards being more environmentally... More

We stayed here for 2-nights. 1. Location: It's located on beach side. You can walk to beach directly via its small restaurant. Hikkaduwa beach is very long. But in some parts, beach is very narrow. The beach in front of this guest house is wide and nice. Outside of the hotel, it's a busy road where you can find many... More

Dear Chamara, Exactly one year ago my wife Bianca and I checked in to your place what turned out to be the very best experience we made through our whole Sri Lanka trip. After busy months working abroad and the birth of our first daughter only seven weeks ago, I have finally found time for things which are important to... More

We had a great stay at Neela's. It was the end of the season and we might have been the last guests to leave the place but we were treated absolutely fantastic. The place is right by the beautiful beach, rooms big and clean, staff very friendly and Chamara very welcoming. We will be back! Cheers from Poland :)

Neela's Guest House is run by a wonderful group of friendly staff who keep their 15 rooms clean and well kept. The beach restaurant in located at the front with a nice atmosphere and delicious food (a great prawn curry!) Two or three nights in this place will round off your holiday nicely.

We booked for 2 nights, ended up staying 3. Good, clean room on the ground floor, quiet location, restaurant was good. A good place to start from when you are moving south from Colombo Hikkaduwa (narigama bay) was less crowded than expected. November is a good time to go, december is supposed to be busier. Surf (beachbreak and reef) where... More

The hotel is decent , clean, affordable. Dont go by the name Beach view rooms as u cant see the beach from any rooms. Though the beach is just 1 min walk away but the hotel's shack blocks the view. All in all good place to peace out with friends and family. The hotel staff is very cooperative.

We were given the room at the very top which was very spacious and looked out over the sea. However, the road noise was really bad and the staff were considering what they could do to ameliorate this such as building in sliding windows on the road side. I do hope they do so as the street noise was very... More

We stayed at Neela's for 3 night's and had a great time. Clean and simple rooms, and friendly and helpful straff. The hotel is situated right by the Narigama beach, which is much nicer than Hikkaduwa beach. Next door is also a nice restaurant.
