Me and my friend stayed in Shahira hotel for 3 nights. The room was very clean and had shelf and a table. Mosquito net was whitout holes and big enough for both beds. Hotel is situated very close to the beach and starting point to Pigeon Island. We also loved breakfast-very abundant and good. Owners are very friendly and speak... More

We stayed for eight nights, and it was really good. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the Hotel is 200m from the Beach and its also very close to pigeon island. Most of the food was delicious and the staff is friendly and helpful. Its easy to reach trincomalee from here. If you plan on going to nilaveli, you should... More

The manager, Mohammed Sadiq, was very accomodating, after a misunderstanding on the phone about room reservations he allowed 4 of us to spend 2 nights in a room meant for 3 people. The rooms are fairly basic but were clean. The beds have mosquito nets (although fairly holey) and the fan in the room does a fair job of keeping... More

The place is reasonably priced. Mohomad was very hospitable and made our stay comfortable. This hotel is in a very good location as it's close to the beach to a few minutes to the diving centres. Overall it was a nice stay.

The owner, Mohammed Sadiq, was friendly and accomodating. There had been a misunderstanding over the phone about how many rooms were needed but he allowed four of us to stay in one room for a very reasonable price. The place was pretty clean, bed comfortable with a fan and spacious bathroom. No noise issues. The garden in front of the... More

The hotel is cheap and in a great location. We booked for 4 nights but ended up stayed for just one. The room was dirty. Breakfast was poor, and served on stained / dirty tablecloths. It was also noisy - we were woken up by praying / singing in the early morning.

Although we arrived at 04:45h with the sleeper bus from Colombo, we could immediately take a quick rest in one of the available rooms! The beach is very close and clean and easy for swimming. The manager Mohamed Sadiq is very kind and helpful and guided us to a good diving center owned by German guy named Hans. Definitely a... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at Shahira Hotel. We both knew not to expect too much as this is still a very undeveloped, relatively unvisited area, as Nilaveli is in an area that was near impossible to visit during the fighting not so long ago. The hotel is quite large in footprint, and has rooms that are pretty... More

We had a nice stay at Shahira Hotel in Nilaveli. It is a basic hotel, but it works. There is nice staff, and nice chairs outside the rooms. We enjoyed drinking tea or cold fruit juices in the afternoon and evenings. The location is 3 min from beach and where you get transport to Pigeon Island. The owner Mr. Mohamed... More
