When we arrived the hotel didnt have a record of our booking (through our tour operator) and had a party in full swing. There was only skeleton staff due to it being a New Year / Easter holiday so the manager had to go and vacate and clean two rooms for us. (when I say "clean"......) It took over an... More

We stayed there for 1 night, nice view from the balcony, right next to the sea (just like most of the places there). There was an a/c and a wifi. Room (and the hotel) were a bit dated and need upgrading. Service was a bit slow. Alltogether just average (in Sri Lankan standars).

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our 10 day trip in Sri Lanka. It was a good place for the price. It was right on the water and easy access to other place up and down the beach. A 100 rupee tuk tuk ride gets you up and down to the good places... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in early December of 2012. We stayed in a sea-facing double room with aircon and a balcony which was nice. In the bathroom though there was a dead insect (seemed to have been dead for a while), and furniture on the balcony were a tad filmsy. Owner and staff were friendly - staff tried to... More

Stayed one day in may 2013. Good location. Budget place. Basic facilities are there. Needs refurbishing. Cockroaches ++. The positive was that in front of our room we had the ocean so it was very close and easy to go on a beach. Nights are loud, especially when there are parties. .you will not be able to sleep well past... More

Ok so the place is pretty shabby but as it is a budget place you get what you pay for. Our room on the upper level was clean, insect free and had a/c and hot water. If you are there like us to enjoy the beach you do not spend much time in your room which does have a balcony... More

We didn't have reservations and the staff still got a decent room with spectacular views. Very friendly staff and the small restaurant had good and cheap food. There is a diving thing also happening. It's a budget hotel but I m sure you will feel you are paying a lot less than the stay deserves. I am a bit surprised... More

Rooms are terrible. Especially at the first floor and road side ones. One cannot survive without AC, but those rooms are non AC / AC not working / power shut down, or all of them. Rooms at the beach side is Ok, but even them do not worth more than 500 rupees. All rooms has historic / archaic beds, cabinets,... More
