The rooms are clean, big and newly refurbished. The two staff who worked there were awesome, the room cleaner and the guy in the restaurant. Restaurant food was minimal and they said the reason was because it was out of season and their staff weren't back yet. We were given the menu and told we could have option 1 for... More

Fine hotel with nice big rooms, and at least mine had a view to the beach (although palm trees restricted the view a bit). Nice restaurant with lots of options. Wifi did not reach the room, and wasn't too reliable. Staff was welcoming and helpful.

The hotel itself is average. The rooms are small, but clean. Bathroom was ok. The towels that the hotel provides you with are so small you can't even get yourself dry. The location of the hotel is awesome, litteraly ON the beach. They have sunbeds on the beach and also the best location on the beach. The staff is very... More

Hotel was fine, room was basic - nothing special and maybe a bit pricey considering that. Room was clean but during our four night stay they didn't clean the room once, we didn't ask but for the price I think they should do a daily clean. Also the towels are tiny, they don't fit round your body! They should invest... More

I just got back after a 15 night stay at the IBH. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. My room was clean with the 2 small towels previously mentioned. They were fine. I agree if there are 2 of you sharing the bed, the one small cover that is provided would not be enough for 2, it was... More

Not kept that clean never swept in the evening ,staff unhelpful and unless you are prepared to constantly spend money in restaurant they will ask you to move off their sunbeds ,don't give them your custom ,go to all the other beachfront restaurants who will welcome you

Spent my last night in SL here and was disappointed. The prebooked room was not avaiable and the other room was dark and smelly (bathroom otherwise was quite okay). The manager refused any discount nor did he appologise. Also there were kinda strange folks (I guess staff...) hanging around which made me worry about my stuff in my room for... More

This is perfectly located in Hikkaduwa. Rooms are clean and ok priced. 20$ extra for AC. There was a great mix between young people and adults. Not to noisy at night, besides the road (we had the room closest to the road. Do not recommend that one). Super friendly staff with a funny old night guard. The food is just... More

Recently spent 2 nights at this property. While I enjoyed the rustic feel to the rooms and the excellent service by the staff, I did not feel it was apropriate to charge some $75 (with tax) for a room where the A/C was not working that well, didn't have proper covering sheets and had inadequate supplies of towels. We had... More
