Stayed here for one night until I travelled elsewhere. Room was clean, dated but I didn't mind as it was only somewhere to sleep. Shower flooded the floor and the toilet was blocked, called the maintenance guy and he came straight over and sorted it out. Dinner was typically sri lankan curry and rice, very tasty. Breakfast was again curry... More

This place was shocking. I've stayed in some grim places but at least they have the decency to charge less. Their only saving grace was two of the staff, the waiter at breakfast and one of the guys cleaning the rooms, and the pool. Everything else was shocking considering the room fee. Everything smelt damp, we settled on the third... More

Located right on the seashore, we had a very pleasant stay here for five days. Very helpful and friendly staff, adequate restaurant and service. Wifi is good and moderately fast but occasionally drops to really slow speeds. They have a shower gel with an aroma so good, I felt like eating it!! Rooms are clean and well maintained. The ambience... More

I took a swim in the Morning everyday during my stay. Very refreshing. They call it a budget hotel but the cleanliness of the rooms and... More

This is a hotel that is away from the daily buzz. Quiet location. Low rate, so don't expect everything to be perfect. Nor expect anything extra. You get what you paid for. Check-in, go out in the city, come back to sleep. Friendly staff, they got a pool, that's a huge plus though. It's next to a rail road, but... More

This hotel is a little gem next to the beach. The price we paid for what we received was unbelievable. The rooms were clean and tidy and the staff helpful and friendly. We stayed here for three weeks and loved every minute of it. The hospitality of the owner Buwaneka is second to none. He's one of the most helpful... More

I spent four wonderful days at Ranveli and felt very safe and relaxed considering I'm a single female who was on a long weekend business trip. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating to my demands. The room was very clean and comfortable with both a fan and A/C as well as a cable TV, fridge, sofa and a lockable... More

My ten days of stay in Ranvelli Beach Hotel was great! Though it was such a short stay for lots of activities to do, my stay in Ranvelli Beach hotel was a big help. It became easier for me because of the help and warm accommodation of the Hotel friendly staff. They welcomed me like a family and that is... More
