Rooms are not luxurious but for a average traveler can be satisfied. Staff friendly. Safety guaranteed. Rates reasonable. Food delicious. Excursions can be arranged if you request n advance. It gives you a real country side atmosphere.

We just ate here! Well the good site is if you eat here you can say that you ate the most discusting asian food in all over asia - and survived... Sarcasm off... It was raining very hard at that moment we were on the street so we gave this restaurant a chance... that was a mistake... About the hotel... More

We went to the bar/restaurant on the beach. Here is what we think: WHAT WE LIKED - Decent food  - Amazing place, feet in the sand! WHAT COULD BE BETTER  - Overpriced food and drinks (7.5 usd for a cocktail... More than in Australia ...). 20m further on the beach it's 3.8 usd max. Half price.  - The staff is... More

I stayed here all day sunbathing and then had dinner. The service was slow but the price was reasonable. The fish rotti was awful - like a weird calzone with tomato sauce and tuna - not an authentic rotti at all. Dinner was a bbq red snapper for 1300 rupees with barely any meat on. I'd try somewhere else.

The bar/restaurant are the high point. The food is good, service quick, drinks relatively cheap and it all fronts onto the beach, it's 15 metres between the tables and the sea. It's hardly an escape from western life though with scores of sunburned holidaymakers lazing on sun beds, reading terrible books and looking miserable. It reminded me so much of... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and found the room lovely, we were on the second floor and our room had a balcony overlooking the sea, The Inn is perfectly placed at the quieter end of the cove. There are loungers on the beach and a swimming pool which looked very clean. Service at the restaurant and on the beach... More

Very popular beach restaurant serving generally good food and a great 4 hour "Happy hour" BUT along with lots of other diners we waited well over an hour for mediocre food, no apology, no concern and then twenty minutes before I had to ask again for the bill. Surprisingly a "non happy hour" drink was brought immediately. I know it's... More

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights as it was the only affordable option we could find over Christmas on the beach. The price was much more reasonable than other similar places on Mirissa beach, so we were happy for that. They even had a triple room and included breakfast. The daily happy hour was a good way to...

Many better beachside hotels than this. No room cleaning and no Sri Lanka food except in the evening when a gang of Sri Lanka beach boys evicted me from my sunset deck chair to set up pop up fish restaurant serving yesterday's catch or older. Great potential - poor management.
