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

While waiting, we were told we colud take something to drink at the beach cafe belonging to the hotel. We ordered pineapple... More

And make no mistake my friends, it was a pleasant one. We were apprehensive of the quality cleanliness and general standards of service before we embarked on our Sri Lankan journey on 27th Dec 2013. Contrary to our concerns, genuinely Sri Lanka is a pleasant place to stay in... visit some places. But the beaches take the cake. Unawatuna is... More

Sea View is located as the last guest house at the end of the road running along the beach. It is a basic guesthouse with OK rooms all having private bathrooms. The best rooms is situated on first floor where you have a good view over the beach. The restaurant is on the beach and due to a new stone... More

Located right on the beach this guesthouse is perfectly located. Breakfast are taken on the beach, in front of the sea. Rooms are average and bathroom could be cleaner. But staff amability and hotel good location worth it.
