We stayed 6 nights at Sea View and for £20 per night B&B it finished our holiday on a high! Only footsteps to the beach, staff is friendly and you feel at home! The room is basic, fab air conditioning facility, showers good and four poster bed is fitted with netting to avoid the mosquito's. No need to go to... More

Finding food and other leftovers from former guests we kept up for one night but then moved. This is not the place you would like to stay unless you are on a very low budget. There are many good alternatives in Unawatuna.

We stayed a couple of days in this resort and enjoyed it very much. The location is perfect, with a garden in front of it and next to the beach. The rooms are basic but o.k. (Incl. Muskito nets). The food was very good and the staff friendly, especially Yuko ( a very nice, polite and helpfull guy!)

The sea view hotel is under new management. The staff is friendly and willing but lack experience. The rooms are very basic, not very clean but functional. Breakfast is very simple (white toast, egg and coffee). The beach is at the other side of the road. If you are a midrange traveller without any sense for ambiance this is an... More

We spent our last 3 nights in Sri Lanka at this quaint guest house, and couldn't have been happier! The owner was away, but the acting manager and staff were very pleasant and friendly. They even helped us with learning more Sinhala before our departure! Our driver recommended the corner room overlooking the beach, but it was being renovated. We... More

We stayed 4 nights and had a very comfortable stay for a competitive price. What we liked the most is the location 1 minute from the Unawatuna beach, big room and the staff who tried their best to satisfy our wishes. We like to drink coffee first thing in the morning and since they don't have cofffee making facilities in... More

After staying in many places in sri lanka, my opinion is that Sea view is underrated. The owner gave me a great price for a room with bathroom and AC, and with large terrace overlooking the beach. In the morning I had breakfast in their restaurant on the beach (included). It is a little bit worn out, shower leaking and... More

We spent 3 nights at this guest house. Our room was not that clean, the towels looked dirty and the pillows in the bed were not clean either. But we were so tired of changing place all the time that we decided to stay three nights and take it easy. It is a family who runs the hotel and the... More

The rooms are clean, the showers work and the beds are okay. The location is perfect. However, found the staff very rude and not very hospitable they didn't really seem to care much about customers. Breakfast was okay not the best.

Sea View Guest House is is underrated indeed. I and my wife spent two days in this peaceful place. Rooms are spacious, clean and well furnished. The best rooms are on the first floor and you can see the beech from the balcony. Staff is very well behaved and helpful. Breakfast, for some reason is served in the room and... More
