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

We have just returned from a 3 week stay at Tandem Guesthouse. What can i say...It's a little gem !! Sunil and his staff are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are a good size, equiped with AC and a ceiling fan and kept spotlessly clean, as were the surrounding areas. You could sit on... More

The room was ideal and centrally located across the road from the beach which I think is much more preferable. The owner seemed liked a nice guy. Deck chairs outside the room a bonus too! This end of hikkaduwa is best place to stay

We stayed three nights in tandem guesthouse in January 2014. The rooms are very clean and look according to pictures on booking site. We had one of the first rooms, near the highway, and it is not sound proof! Unfortunately you can hear the traffic extremely well. The guesthouse is situated really close to the beach, just cross the road... More
