Wonderful ambiance with warm, cozy public sitting areas on every floor. Spotlessly clean in the rooms, the dining area and public areas. Well situated - close to the beach but far enough away from the noisy strip. Friendly and helpful hosts. Excellent breakfast.

This was the nicest hotel I experience during my time in Sri Lanka. It is run by a Norwegian man and his Sri Lankan wife. The staff is very happy, well trained, and takes initiative. The service is good and fast. The rooms are pretty and clean. The location is very close to the beach, and the facility is a... More

The hotel is run by a welcoming couple: A Sri Lankan lady and her Norwegian husband. Both of them have a very calming presence and are the biggest reason why this place has the vibe it has: friendly and warm, but never intrusive. And the one other thing, that's worth to mention: Really good food.

The joke is -- I stayed here some time ago and I promised the owners to leave a review on TripAdvisor. It was an easy promise because this place was (is) one of the best places I have ever stayed at. And I consider myself to be a somewhat spoilt traveler. I did write a review but that somehow didn't... More

We had a most wonderful stay at Nor Lanka Hotel. We stayed in room 302. The room was relatively spacious. Very good beds and a mosquito net. Good AC and a balcony with view over the nearby forest area from where we saw monkeys in the treetops, lots of squirrels and exotic birds. The room was very clean. Nice breakfast... More

We picked up this hotel online mainly because it offered family rooms. What a luck! It was far the best place we stayed in during our 2 week stay on the island. Hotel is beautiful and perfectly clean, family room actually consists of two conencted rooms, each with its own AC. There is a short walk to the beach. Breakfast... More

Cosy little private place. Nice people. And the food was really good. Expect some waiting time, it's totally worth it. If they had a pool, it would be a five, but the beach is close-by and nice, too, with lots of restaurants on the way. Contrary my expectations, there were no mosquitos.

A great place to stay om Unwatuna. Close to the beach and bars but yet very quiet. Dinner and breakfast very good. The whole place is so nice and clean and the rooms had good space. An extra plus for the mosquito net that was hanging down straight along the sides of the bed and not hanging from one spot... More

One of the best hotel experiences i've ever had. Had the pleasure of staying there twice - will definitely visit again. Owners and staff are helpful and always offer you a smile. Food is delicious - best in the area i think. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Short walk to the beach.
