I stayed here alone after a sales conference and was very happy with the place. It is simple but all rooms are clean and come with a/c, fan, mosquito net and ensuite. The owner/manager Sunnil is very helpful with any advice you might need. A good breakfast is also included in the price and wifi is free. In terms of... More

We stayed with my girlfriend at this guesthouse a few days ago while being in Hikkaduwa and we really liked it! Considering the price we paid and the use we had of it, it was simply a great deal. It is located on the main "shopping" street just a building away from the beach so it's really practical both during... More

Liked - Location was the best part. You step out of the hotel and you are on the main beach road at Hikkaduwa. Cross the road and you are onto the beach!! The uncle at the reception who manages the place is really sweet. Rooms are always almost full so if you are getting a booking, don't miss it. Place... More

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.
