We arrived a bit before check in time, where our host was nothing but helpful and gave us the room to leave our bags in while we went to the beach & he organised our room. Great bed with mosquito net, good wifi, close to hikkaduwa beach yet still quiet, and good AC. There wasn't much hot water but it's... More

This place is a little gem- it's a basic set up but you couldn't want or ask for anything more! You walk over the road and you're at the beach! The bed is spacious and a mosquito net is provided. There is a safe, loads of wardrobe space and kettle facilities. An incident (weather related) occurred on our first night... More

During my week stay in Sri Lanka, this place was by far, the best place I stayed in. Located along the main road, it's a dash across to the beach. It looks unassuming from the outside so don't be fooled. The rooms are huge and spacious and come equipped with a bar fridge, cupboard, table and the usual items. It's... More

We couldn't be happier with our two night stay. In addition to what others have mentioned, I'll add: nice garden area, table and chair in the room and nice roomy bathroom. Best of all there were no surprise charges on our bill. And they accept credit cards.

Nice hotel, nice staff. Relaxed place. The hotel is situated across the road from the beach, but the beach is easy to get to. All rooms are placed behind the "reception" and breakfast restaurant and the noise from the road can not be heard.

very clean and new rooms, good service with really nice staff, excellent breakfast!, AC and mosquito nets. Right across the street there is a small passage to the beach, so it doesnt matter the hotel is not on the beach directly.

Stayed here for our first night in Hikkaduwa and would have stayed longer but there weren't any available rooms. For the price, this guest house can't be beat. The first thing we noticed upon check-in was that there was a printout in the room that outlined all of the questions you would ask as soon as you arrive to a... More

Odd-on of the place - the location between two villages. You can combine two beaches by swimming in a quiet water and conquer waves surfing. A lot of bars, restos, shops are located around. Rooms are small but well equipped, clean and cozy. Very hospitable staff ready to help, advise and simply chat. Good place to stay for 4-5 days... More
