“Avoid Avoid Avoid”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We decided to stay in this hotel because of its location on a lovely beach but we were very disappointed .The rooms are very very poor ,beds are terribly uncomfortable ,we found several insects everywhere ,during our stay the room was never cleaned .Meals were terrible ,the breakfast constisted of some slices of white bread ,tea-no milk at all - a spoon of jam and a tiny silce of omeltte.The dinners were even more terrible ,the chicken cury was just bones ,shrimps curry was made with dry not fresh shrimps .The cost was very high for the bad quality of the food .This place should be avoided not to have a very disappointing experience

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

It is what it is , simple and affordable at LKR4500 for a large double and extra bed for our son . It's in a quite area so you would need your own transport but a stunning deserted beach lies just across the path so easy for beach access. Lovely owner and manager and felt that we were well looked after . Not the prettiest of buildings from the outside but it was safe and equipped with a restaurant . Perfect place if you are on a road trip and need a base for a day or 2 .
