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

This hotel is right on the beach and my review is based on my 1 day stay at this hotel. This hotel is right on the beach which is definitely a plus point, but so is any other hotel in hikkaduwa. There is no parking facility for calling it a hotel. Luckily it had one space in the front where... More

We spent 6 great days in Hikkaduwa over NYE 2014 and enjoyed our stay here. Hot tip - room 38 and 39 on the top floor have a great view of the beach, a private balcony and complete privacy from the rest of the guests....book these if available. The rooms are clean, simple and adequate for a beach stay and... More

Hikkaduwa is a lovely place to go if you are okay with a big beach town crowded by foreigners. The beach is perfect and is occupied with hotels and restaurants along the coast. IBH is one of them. The courtyard is extremely pretty and well kept. Rooms have an adequate size with good AC and big bathroom - stayed in... More

Perfectly located at the beach, clean and nice room (you just need to leave your key at the reception and ask for cleaning), walking distance to all the restaurants, bars and nightlife. The staff is very lovely and friendly. The food is also good. I felt perfect there and meet a lot of other nice travelers.

We enjoyed a wonderful week in this family owned small hotel right on the beach. although it was off season we could enjoy the beautiful wide beach, clear water and great waves with lots of sunshine. There are many sunbeds with sun protection and even beachservice... More

By far the best place I've stayed in Sri Lanka! Not to far from main reef and the best beach brakes around the place if your into surfing. The staff are super helpful and the food is safe and tasty. Walking distance to all the night life and restaurants, and the rooms are very tidy and clean.

A nice looking hotel with a nice athmosphere. Nearby a lot of places to drink or eat. Once you leave the beach prices go down. At about 0,75 km there is a supermarket, when you leave go left. If you leave to the right there is almost nothing. If you want to see the turtles go to the chaaya tranz... More

We stayed 4 nights here in two rooms. The hotel is perfecty located on the beach with nice sunbeds. The staff are friendly and talkative. Food is average. The rooms were nice and clean with hot warer but the door to the bathroom in one of the rooms (no.31) were broken and could not close. They have a variety of... More

Best hotel in Hikkaduwa! All the time the hotel is full unlike others. Right next to the best surfing spot. We walked all along the beach and never saw as much people as in this hotel. They have the best personnel who always do the impossible to please the clients. The manager is one of the most professional and cooperative... More
