This was the worst place we stayed at during the entire holiday. Hugh amount of bugs, dirty, lousy shower and nasty owners. Totally overpriced- never beleive the owner, always ask for a better room or better- stay away!

Good things: good price with air conditioner, close to pigeons Island. Service at front desk was average. The bad: cleaning in the halls and stairs could be better, and smell inaode the rooms. The service at the restaurant is soooo bad, slow, and the waiters serve as if they are doing you a favor. No much options as ia far... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights this Summer. We paid 8000 for an upstairs room which was way too much but we were too tired to care at that point. Should have haggled so partly our fault. The room was large, with a decent bed and other furniture. We had a TV with cable which... More

We stayed at this hotel during our last visit to Trincomalee during April 2014. Service was excellent and food was extremely delicious. We never expected their food to be in such a superb grade the moment we visited. Even the food is so reasonable. And the portion sizes were also perfect. Could highly recommend for anyone who will be traveling... More

Ideally situated facing a wonderful beach and 100 meters from the boats and the ticket booth to Pigeon island. Dedicated staff, ready to do everything they can to please their customers. Excellent cook and cheap prices. The room was a bit basic (noisy AC, wires hanging ...) but - as for the third floor rooms -a very large terrace with... More

Spent 1 night (couple + 2 teenagers) in a family room in the separate building, during a 3-weeks tour of Sri Lanka. This was not a nice experience. The room was not very clean and looked like a workshop or shed that had been hastily converted into a room. No A/C was available. There are apparently nicer rooms in the... More

Worst hotel of our 2 weeks stay in Sri Lanka. When we arrived, we were shown to a room that looked like a prison cell (no windows), toilet hadn't been cleaned, no toilet roll. When we asked for a different room, we were told there were none available and it was our problem not theirs. They were later able to... More

We stay at this hotel a couple of weeks back. The best thing about it is the location- its right on the beautiful Nilaveli Beach. The rooms are clean and ok. The bed sheets were washed and new but there were stains all over. My advice is to bring your own set of clean sheets. The towels too are not... More
