We spend 3 nights at Morgan's and for us it was difficult to leave. Maria who is taking care of the place is a sweet and honest person. The room was clean, quite big, with hot shower, fan and a mosquito net for the bed. She prepared for us a typical Sri Lankan breakfast, and a dinner with some fishes... More

Not a bad place to stay but everything is quite expensive. Skip the breakfast. We paid 6000 rupees for a driver to take us round the peninsula which I would not recommend. Not very informative and disappeared for 30mins when we were looking round the library. Hire a scooter instead and go see it yourself. We had dinner in the... More

We had a good experience and found it a good place to meet others. Maria was friendly and helpful. We thought the costs of the tuk tuks trips arranged through the guesthouse were indeed a bit pricy. We loved swimming at the hotel Lux Etoile a few minutes walk away. Got bitten badly by mozzies sitting in the communal areas... More

We had a nice quirky room which was spacious but really could have done with a clean. Whilst Maria seemed friendly we quickly realised this was only if she liked you, lots of people got turned away when most of the rooms were empty and then there were arguments between the staff. We did have a good time here and... More

Stayed two nights at Morgan's Guest House. Efficient, clean , comfortable rooms with en-suite baths and A/C which makes it a desirable place. Choose a room away from the street, due to early morning traffic. Nice open verandah seating area offers a place to cool off during the day. Located within a few hundred meters of the famous Nallur Kovil... More

I have stayed here many times, and Maria is the best! She is always offering tea, and working hard cleaning and taking care of the grounds. The rooms are basic, but clean. There is an A/C in the rooms, but there is the option to pay a bit less and only use the fan. The location is nice, nearby several... More

Clean and comfortable- I had a nice room with a little extra working and writing area. I was given a table lamp on request as like many places the lighting is a bit dim. The garden is nice for a beer and I had several evening meals- which were excellent- including fresh tuna specially bought by Laurence. My laundry was... More

Yes, the place is clean and close to the temple, but Maria overcharges for everything (breakfast, beer, laundry, rides to the island). The main problem is that her partner regularly gets drunk on the premises and then talks very loud on the phone, and this way into the night. I will never go back there.

Morgans has a big rap from lonely planet and mixed recent TA reviews. After 8 nights I've loved it. Close to the Nullar temples, a quiet refuge with a bar and the vibrant Maria running the show, it has good rooms, wifi and a tuk tuk rank outside. Breakfast is basic and maybe alternatives are best after a day or... More

We went there thanks to lonely planet... as everyody i guess ! So yeah the house is good, Maria is a business woman.. kinda "fake nice". I think the all "bar" thing is over even if she does sell beer. As for the service, well it's a failure. We booked over the phone a week before, for 3 nights... they... More
