I chose to stay here after its good reviews, but I didn't feel welcomed. I was standing outside for 20 minutes and had to go next door to ask the owners there how to get in (this was after a 17hr flight and in the full heat of the sun). When I was finally shown to my room I was... More

The owner is a very friendly, flexible and accommodating lady. The room itself was comfortable and clean.

I've stayed at many other guest homes and budget hotels in Mount Lavinia and none compare to homeliness and comfort of Priyani's home. She's a very sweet and kind lady, who's been extremely helpful during our numerous stays. We... More

We choose Mount Lavinia Homestay as it had good bus connectivity (a bus stop is about 100 meters from here) and it is just half a kilometer from Mount Lavinia railway station. The rooms here...

I used to stay at this place for the past 5 years and I feel homely atmosphere. Mrs.Priyani was very helping person and she cares for the guest a lot. All the essential places are nearby. I love to stay on this place and this is really a home way from my home. A place that gives cherishing moments...

Go to the beach and greet the dawn which starts from the sea and meet beautiful sunset - all this you can do without much trouble here. This is a very cool place to consider if you want to stay close to Mount Lavinia beach and the legendary Mount Lavinia hotel. This is really very special, unique place and has... More
