The best thing about Calm Rest is their location. They have weired system to check in - its in the "living room" of the owners, in the first moment we didn't find this place at all. Beside this we could not find more good things about. Onyl with help from the staff we were able to lock our rooms /... More

We do not put dirty sheets what so ever. In this hot month March this is the cheapest price you can get an air conditioning room with breakfast. I don't think that anyone will ever find a better room than you get from here in Mirissa. Your booking was for US$37.80 per night. If you think that is an expensive... More

We spent 3 days and 2 nights in this house. We used a room withou A/C - bedroom with one wardrobe and room with toilet, shower and sink. If required the staff is able to provide you also breakfast. Great benefit of this Guest House is its location - 1 minute walk to reach Mirissa beach - and also close... More

We had booked here via booking.com but on arrival they didn't have accomodation because of a double booking. They blaimed booking.com because it wasn't the first time. They did nothing to help us out and send to booking.com we never showed up. It all looked like a mess overthere. When we asked for the WiFi code to find something else... More

Me, my husband and my 5 year old son stayed here for 3 nights in one of the ground floor apartments. We found it on booking.com. We had a triple room and it was cheap, comfortable and had a/c. The staff were really helpful, helped find out train times etc for the next part of our journey. It was quiet... More

We booked by price decisions; but canceled after a one day stay; as others wrote before: no charm at all; non-motivated staff; very poor standard; we had a room in the main building; no moskito net for the separate bed; there is no area at the hotel to hang around outside the rooms; One pro: very close to the beach.

We had a room in the apartment block and would rate our stay as average. It suited what we needed; a large room for two very close to the beach (it's a 2 min walk). No frills, just good value. We had a fan room with towels, hot water etc. No AC. We also had no breakfast. We did get... More

We found the accommodation through booking.com. The place looked noce and it was quite cheap. We arrived on friday so it took us about 6 hours to get to Mirissa from the airport - 3 hrs traffic drive just through Colombo. Our room was simple but clean with a comfortable bed. What we later discovered, the indispensable part of the... More

I stayed here for quite a few nights. The owners are sweet. There are bungalows and there is two story building that houses about eight other rooms. The accommodation was simple but exactly what you need. Mosquito nets, fan, en-suite, balcony. My only criticism is the heat in the upstairs rooms... unbelievably hot during the day... that said, within a... More
