I stayed for a few nights in July 2014. I'm a lone traveller that had waited for several years to come to Nilaveli beach. The manager, Mr Mohamed was most welcoming and helpful. Room was comfortable and clean with a fan and a separate shower room. Breakfast was served promptly. Fried eggs with plenty of toast, marmalade and jam .... More

The owner, Mohamed Sadiq, was happy to make arrangements and negotiate with us although we made a last minute booking. The room was slightly on the hot side and outside the there were many bugs, but other than that we were happy to stay at such a great location right near Nilaveli beach. From there you can see and go... More

Had a very pleasant stay at this humble place at an attractive price point. The people running it are very kind and helpful, particularly the manager Mohamed Sadiq. He'll kindly give you advice on how to get around and more. Beach is just a 2 min walk. Boats to pigeon island lay ready on the beach. The room I had... More

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 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.
