Unfortunately we didn't stay in their accommodation but we ate here at least at dinner and sometimes lunch or breakfast. The owner is an ex fisherman who knows his fish and has a son who knows how to cook them! We enjoyed many a conversations with the owner who was undoubtedly the loveliest guy we've met since being in Sri... More

The owner of the restaurant is an amazing host - He, and his staff, shows a sincere interest in the customers, so you feel very welcome at all times, in this relaxed and nice restaurant plus in the outdoor serving area next to the beach.

Nice clean rooms, nice staff, good food and good service :) Saachith makes everything he can to keep his guests happy. If its your birthday just let him know- he will throw the most awesome birthday party ;) If you want to see the area... More

We enjoyed several lovely meals at Coppenrath. I don't understand why they aren't in the top 10 of best restaurants in Tangalle as their food and service are just as good as the ones listed in Trip Advisor. We had prawns, fresh fish and noodles all beautifully cooked, nicely presented and the service prompt and friendly. Prices are also very... More

We loved this place so much that we are returning again for Christmas 2014. We were so happy to find this small hotel after searching along the beach for more than an hour looking at close to seven other places. Coppenrath has clean rooms and a friendly staff. There wasn't any request that they were not eager to meet. They... More

Take one of the highest rooms and you'll have a jacuzzi in your bedroom. We really enjoyed this luxury and the nice view from the balcony. It's a quiet place and we had our dinner on the beach with a candle and a free Arrack drink every night. The staff is very friendly and took care of us, especially when... More

We stayed a night here in September. We were the only guests.The beach was too rough for swimming with large waves crashing close to the shore, but a 300rs Tuk Tuk ride will have you at a safer stretch of beach. (some old coral so reef shoes are a bonus). Firstly the rooms at Coppenrath are clean but an unusual... More

We were in Feb. 2012 and we really enjoyed it. We planned to stay 1 or 2 nights there but at the end we liked it so much that we stayed until the end of our holidays (7 days), but we could stay there for months. Sachith was very nice and hospitable.
