I really enjoyed my stay at Frangipani. The staff really go out of their way to make sure you're happy and comfortable, without being the over the top. It's a beautiful part of the country and one of the best spots on Tangalla bay. I particularly want to thank Rangana, Namal and Fasloon, really great guys and made my stay... More

If you are travelling in a budget this is a nice place to stay. We got a big room with nice balcony and super clean! We had half board included, but the dinner and the breakfast were very poorly. Anyway staff was friendly and as I said if you re travelling in a budget I do recommend this guesthouse otherwise... More

We stayed here two nights. We had a nice clean room (cleanest room in Sri Lanka) in a new building I think. The food in the restaurant: we had half board and I have to say I was disappointed. For breakfast we didn't have anything special or good and we had to wait once for about two hours before we... More

Ended up at this place for a night as a stop over on my way to Tissa. The friendly owner showed me a couple of rooms and I opted for the nicer of the two. The room was spacious with decoration and nice touches which you'd expect to find in a more expensive place. The price was 4000 rupees. I... More

me and my boyfriend had wonderful and very happy times in this hotel. The rooms are beautifully furnished with comfotable beds and a bathroom that leaves no wishes. It was also one of the cleanest hotels we stayed during our trip through Sri Lanka. All the staff is very polite and try to help with everything possible. I highly reccommend... More

The hotel has a good location but that's about it. The service is really very bad. Except for 2 staff members, most of them are lost, don't care or don't register what you are saying. I asked for a massage appointment and was kept waiting for 45 minutes to hear about the where and when which I never did. We... More

We stayed for one night at Frangipani and enjoyed our day there using the facilities and beach-front bar. The hotel is well located a short walk from town and the place is clean enough. However, we had a terrible experience when paying the bill. We booked a double room with an extra matress, and were assured it would be in... More

We were in a new section which had lovely rooms with a really nice balcony. The food was average and and wait staff pushy and unfriendly because we didn't want to organise any trips. Overall it was an ok place to stay and the beach area in front a good place to relax

Our stay at Frangipani was a mixture of great, good and bad. The location is beautiful right on the beach, lovely breakfast freshly cooked and served with a smile. Also enjoyed dinner there one night and could not fault the food. The prices are also very competitive with all the other places in Tangalle where we went and you are... More

Staying at Frangipani as we speak, location is perfect right on the beach and great spot to chill out, our double room is massive and the food is excellent - great to have a beer in the evening listen the waves hit the beach! Can't fault it and staff are friendly, loads of cricket fans around Tangalle at the moment... More
