This was our second time staying here and we were really looking forward to going back but unfortunately over the past year it seems to have gone downhill. I know the weather was very unseasonal (wet) but the room was dinghy, damp and mouldy - even my clothes were mouldy by the end of two weeks! Breakfast served on our... More

After seeing shining reviews we booked into brinkhouse for 4 nights. The rooms looked nice in the pictures and everybody seemed to be raving about the place. When we arrived however, the reality was very different. It seems the budget rooms on the ground floor don't feature in the pictures... Our room was dingy, damp and mouldy. We had a... More

Nice private rooms with a terrace to a garden with monkeys and squirrels. The owner speaks english quite well and is able to advise you in your further travelling. Very rich breakfasts and friendly atmosphere. The owners wife brings every evening a fragnant stick against mosquitos to your terrace.

We stayed on the 2nd floor in a clean room with a big terrace that you could see monkeys. The service is awesome and the owners are very sympathetic. The location is very convenient and very close to the beach. Definitely recommended. Flora

Brinkhouse and Unawatuna was our first stop in Lanka, and how we we loved it. The B&B is quite simple, but clean and everything works. We had a room on the second floor with a great big terrace where you could watch monkeys and birds and hear jungle sounds :) The best thing about Brinkhouse though, is the fantastic hospitality...

We had a little trouble securing a room via email. We had the 3000 Rp room almost booked, but never got confirmation. By the time we did get confirmation, only the 3500 Rp room was available. We took it on account of the excellent reviews here on TripAdvisor. First of all, there is no restaurant at this guest house and... More

We are just ending a couple of days stay at the Brinkhouse Guesthouse and have had a wonderful time. The owner arranged our faultless collection from the airport at Colombo and we were soon whisked off in air conditioned luxury to the guesthouse. On arrival we were given a n update on the road resort, shown some maps and taken... More

Just few steps away from so far the best beach we have found from Sri Lanka (we've been here 3 weeks now). Nice, safe and clean rooms with all you need. Cheap water is easily bought from the helpful and friendly host, nearby you can find anything you can need for a perfect beach holiday. We can warmly recommend to... More

The gentleman who runs this guesthouse is incredibly kind, helpful and friendly. The rooms were lovely, very clean and spacious with comfortable beds. The breakfast was great, we got loads to eat!! The location is right by Unatwatuna beach and on the right side of Unwatuna to walk to Jungle beach. I couldn't reccomend this place more to anybody as... More
