5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

I am presently staying for the past 4 days and will extend my stay for another 5-6 days. Good, clean, well maintained and airy accom. Friendly and cortious staff. Landlady is also very helpful. Washing machine and also a pantry is provided. Beach is only about 200 mtrs walk. Good rail and road/bus connectivity to Colombo. Lot of small eateries, bakeries and supermarkets at walking distance. KFC & Burger King also at a walking distance. Overall a very good experience. I give 5 stars.

Stayed February 2014, traveled solo

Stayed for two weeks. Found the owner and staff of Aurora Guesthouse to be extremely helpful and kind. Room was clean and in mint condition. Close to supermarkets and beach. Would definitely recommend this guest house. Good value for money. Thushara was a gem.

Slightly hidden in the suburb Mt Lavinia, Aurora guesthouse is a simple, but good quality guesthouse for both short and long term stay (I was there for ~2 months). The AC and non-AC rooms come with two beds and the linnens provided were clean. There is a balcony in I think each room. There is a kitchen and a fridge for each of the two floors and a washing machine on the rooftop. Cleaning is provided every three days. The only downsides for me were that the pans and cooking cutlery where quite old and not always clean, and that the place to hang your laundry is not roofed. The guesthouse itself is less than 5 minutes away from the Mt Lavinia beach, and a good supermarket with a bakery a little bit further up the road. All in all a good quality guesthouse for a very reasonable price.

Room Tip: Rooms come in different sizes and some balconies are bigger than others. First room to your right on...

We were five girls staying here for a month. It is very close to the beach and to supermarket etc. and the family went out of there way to help us. Definitely recommend it. The rooms get cleaned every three weeks and there is the option to get food there and it was very good
