I was excited to see that this hotel was located right on the beach, with sunbeds we could use and the main surf break around 100m away. However, it came at a very high price for a room which only had a fan. Usually I would be fine with just a fan, however, these rooms are especially hot! Our rooms... More

We stayed one night in this hotel and it was great! we walked near the beach all day and I think the best beach in Hikkaduwa is near this hotel. It's really clean, not crowded and relax. The staff was helpful, the breakfast and dinner was amazing. Excellent price for quality!

IBH's location is ideal for the complete Hikka experience; beach and eateries. But amenities and service wise its ideal for budget travellers who are more interested in the sun, sand and the sea. The rooms are clean but very basic. Amenities are very limited. we wanted an extra sheet but was told the request has to be made through the... More

Pros: not too expensive, mosquito net for bed, ceiling fan, nice beach. Cons: about 20-30% too expensive for everything given the quality. Black paint on floor got on everything, staff wasn't exactly friendly, food was subpar. Advice for food: there are two great restaurants across the street: Reve D'Hikka (fancy/byob), and Clara's (hole in the wall, very good authentic food).... More

Food and service absolutely amazing. We stayed 3 nights and would stay forever if it was possible. No bed covers though (1xflat sheet, even if sharing). Tuk tuks, scooters, shops, restaurants, diving, surfing, bars, tea gardens, all readily available. Beautiful people. Beautiful place.

Friendly and pleasing staff. Excellent location, right on the beach. Room was average but clean. Seafood in and around the area was good. Enjoyed the experience. Good to just take a book and relax on the beach.

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
