“Good location, great security but no frills”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2011

Service is good in restaurant as are the curries. Pool nice with bar close by. Excellent access to the beach and not crowded. Room is large but very average and bathroom not worth a mention but the price is ok.

Staff were nice and helpfull.Buffet very poor. cups and plates chipped, different sorts, sometimes not at all present. Bathrooms, afraid to use. Smelly, broken tiles, drains from washbasin open to some hole in the corner.Hotel is up for sale may be a reason not to do any maintenance.

Located right down to a clean and good beach, it is a hotel with a few years old but clean and they are helpful and it's cheap.
There is a nice pool with a bar next to it and there are some good restaurants on the beach.

Stayed here for 5 days. Great location next to beach and near surf shack where the kids spent most of their days having surf lessons - Short walk to good beachside restaurants. The beach directly outside hotel is a much quieter spot than up the road where there are rather too many tourists and glass bottomed boats!!! Also have a Great swimming pool. Accommodation may not be 5 star but the location more than made up for it! Rooms spacious and all with balconies. Breakfast fairly simple but adequate. On site travel/trip desk with 'Lanka' the resident taxi/van driver who was so very helpful and drove us around during our stay...

I enjoyed my stay last week in Sunil's beach hotel with my wife. the hotel is located on the shores and the rooms are pretty decent for the price. the food is good and the staff are friendly. i would recommend this property to all. the only negative is that they do not have a TV in the room and it may be boring in case you opt to stay indoors.

We stayed here for one night. We liked the fact that the building was just a few steps away from the beach.... not bad, however the best beaches in Hikkaduwa are about a 5 min tuk-tuk north of here.

The room was spacious and mostly clean but unimpressive. Shower showing signs of age.

Overall, the hotel did not have much character. Seemed more like a "building" than "accommodation". I would say there are better options for roughly the same price elsewhere.

We stayed here for 2 nights and was an enjoyable stay apart from the fact that you will find a few flaws here and there, but nothing to obstruct the fun. Security was also good.A few things like TV, telephone, WI-FI are not available but the room was massive and largest out of the hotels I have stayed. Make sure you only visit this place if you want to just have fun and make this hotel just a place to spend the nights as you can find many other things to do.Staff are very friendly and serve well.Finally the Seagull restaurant is right in the middle of the hotel and have minor refurbishments in between meal hours at the time of our stay, I would recommend eating out , apart from the breakfast which was alright .
