What more could you want at this price? Initially we were a bit disappointed with the room but it had everything we needed just no view of the river. Staff are great and went out of their way to help. They organised a river trip and tuk tuk to a restaurant. The hotel is well positioned for the market and... More

We stayed here for two days and it was everything we wanted it to be, beautiful setting, quiet and friendly. The guesthouse has beautiful gardens for you to lounge in all afternoon and the sunsets are fabulous. The Hemadan is in a great spot on the lagoon with easy access to Paradise Beach which was just that. One of the... More

We stayed here for a week. Very nice. Great location. Beautiful view over the river. Short boat ride to the beach. Five minutes walk to shops. Good food. Brekfast included in the price. Easy to walk back from the beach if you don't want to agree a time to be picked up by the boat

Only stayed for one night. The fan rooms are great, no need for noisy air conditioners. The restaraunt is OK, but mosquitoes can disrupt your meal. Beautiful view of the lake. Very quit and peaceful area. Wifi is chargable, but still cheap in there currency. Close to the town 5 minute walk, but on a dark backroad.

This place is just what i have been looking for. It is a good value for money guesthouse one minutes walk from town, set on the river and a 5 minute walk from the beach. Its garden runs down to the river where you can sit and have a meal.etc. The breakfasts and food were good. The rooms are spacious... More

Located on the riverside with a nice pier to sit in the evenings. The rooms arent the cleanest in the world - but they are okay if you're on a budget. Service is nice and the owner is very accommodating with any request. Chances are that you wont spend much time in the room anyway since you're in a beach... More

Nice location in Aluthgama and good value for money compared to other equivalent places in the area. Bentota is a short tuktuk ride away. It's a very simple hotel and the rooms didnt have air conditioning and the bathroom was clean but very basic. However considering the price, you couldn't expect too much. It's water front and clean. The meals... More

We visited Aluthgama in off-season, so this hotel was dead. And that was just what we wanted. I think there were two other guests in the hotel. The maitre d' was attentive, although not exactly friendly, and although the food wouldn't win any awards it was presentable and tasty enough. There are options for Bed and Breakfast, half board and... More

With the cost of accommodation in Sri Lanka skyrocketing, The Hemadan was a welcome change. It reminded me of some of the cute little guest houses I stayed at on my honeymoon here about 10 years ago. It's no 5 star hotel but we had a great night. The room was clean, the food was tasty, the staff were delightful... More
