This place has pretty good value for money. The constant train noise can be slightly annoying but the place was good. The rooms were clean and simple. It's obviously not a 5 star establishment so one shouldn't go there expecting 5 star services. But the receptionist was friendly and we had a quiet and undisturbed stay, apart from a minor... More

Came back again to OV. This time only for 01 night that too late check-in. It still felt good and I got a good night's sleep. As usual the bread and curry breakfast was great and the usual customized service I receive was delivered. Would have loved to stay a couple of days more but couldn't. Will come back to... More

Planned to stopover at Mount Lavinia for two nights before heading south but ended up returning to the hotel for a total of nine nights. We were recommended to the hotel by a veteran traveler (good friend) who regularly users this hotel as a transit. Wasn't keen in staying as there was no pool but ended up staying here anyway... More

This family run hotel is about as good as it gets for the price. If you want luxury go to the Mount Lavinia Hotel. If you want clean rooms, excellent but simple food, honest staff (you see the same people year after year) then this is what visitin Sri Lanka is all about. The views from the rooms, especially the... More

a nice and clean affordable place. Very friendly and helpful staff. We started and finished our trip there. Great view from our room and within a minute you're on the beach. As elsewhere in mount lavinia you can hear the train cause it's close to the railway. So you just wake up early and you've got more time to enjoy... More

Visited the place again for some food. Enjoyed a String Hoppers and Curry which was really good! The red String Hoppers (also the white ones) have to be ordered early. Don't forget to tell the service personnel if youwould like the curries "hot" or "mild"!

The room simple but comfortable with A/C and hot water, fully tiled. The food tasted very good! Was great to have free WiFi access. Friendly personnel. Just by the beach and also close to the railway line, having some noise during peak hours but you get used to it. Pricing is very reasonable.
