From the reviews we thought it would be a good guest house, Wrong! from the outside it looks very clean, however the room we had was on the top floor and we were told it was the best room in the place. It was dark and gloomy, the sheets were dirty with stains and ripped like an old rag!!! the... More

We stayed here a week in this very attractive hotel. The room and bathroom were super clean and the bed the most comfortable in the whole of our trip! Good to have a mosquito net without holes and a square one! A very fair price with hot water and fan. The outside verandah is screened by golden bamboo and was... More

The Primrose was my home for the week i was in Unawatuna- absolutely loved it! as a solo woman traveler, i felt very safe and comfortable. There was always someone in the entrance and they lock the gate at night- of course with someone there to open it if you come back late. The room was clean, the bed was... More

I totally agree with the last review. I have no complaints. I am a woman traveling alone and feel very comfortable and safe here. Clean rooms, friendly staff, wifi and a balcony overlooking a pretty garden with lots of wildlife. Close to all amenities. For the money you pay, it's perfect.

As a single female traveler in Sri Lanka I am impressed with the Primrose Guest House and have extended my stay here for several days due to the fact I feel so welcome and cared for by the staff. My room is scrupulously clean, has a beautiful four poster bed with gauze curtains and the shower has hot water (!)... More

Me and lots of my friends was staying in this guest house during last two and half years. And most of us were absolutely satisfied about rooms and service and felt comfortable there. Of course it is not 5 stars hotel but in comparison with room prices, it is very good variant. If you get any inconvenience, it`s very easy... More

It finally happened; our first rude and unfriendly and uncaring Sri Lankan hotel manager. We had originally booked for two nights but due to flight change, needed only one. We attempted to relay that information upon checking but we couldn't even check in officially because the manager was not around. The rest of the staff spoke little english so we... More

I would also like to disagree with the last people who think paying 2000 rupees (equiv to £10 !!) means they get a 5 star hotel. I stayed at the primrose last month and i was neither sleeping with cockroaches or eaten by mosquitos. I thought the place was nicely decorated with a four poster bed, ceiling fan and mosquito...
