In a quiet compound down lane off the main road. I had a small room for one night, which was sufficient. Real basic, little cramped, very stuffy room (windows open and fan still didn’t get air moving). All supported by a garish pink bathroom, cold water but ok pressure, with ant colony. But that’s what $20 gets you. Though its a couple of minutes walk from the beach, and was a place to lay my head and have a shower. Breakfast was lovely- including mango and passion fruit from their garden. The wonderful Secret Root Spa is just around the corner. Wouldn’t rush back or recommend, I think there are equally cheap, less garish places popping up in Mirissa.

Rooms are pretty basic but clean. Very helpful and friendly owner and very nice breakfast. Located off the main road in a quiet neighborhood. Just a few minutes walk to the beach and lots of seafood restaurants and bars.

We stayed here for two nights in order to go whale watching. A little set back from the main road but only 2 minutes walk from the beach where you can surf and snorkell with turtles and the accommodation, although basic, is right on the edge of the jungle. we were greeted by a gang of monkeys on arrival and beautiful birds in the trees, both provided great entertainment at breakfast time, not that anything could distract from Pushpa's excellent breakfast. A really pleasant home stay, would definatley return.

In terms of value for money this is a great place to stay. Yes the rooms are basic, and spartan, in need a bit of tlc but they are functional. No aircon in the one I had (I don't know if they have any), but there is a ceiling fan which moves the warm air around. It's a really short walk to the east end of the beach (just at the end of the road, cross over the main road, turn right for 50 yards or so and then an alley left signed to the beach. As it's away from the main road, it's a quiet location. We didn't eat at the hotel as there's plenty of places on the beach, and skipped breakfast as we had an early start (they couldn't do a take out, but did offer a small discount in lieu, which I declined as we'd enjoyed our stay). Hotel also has a spa if you're into that sort of thing. I was advised that there is some problems around the beach (a sign in the hotel suggests to look after your handbag if out at night), but I didn't see any signs of danger or annoyances - I've seen more at most european resorts.

Outdoor seating with shade. Washing service. Decent sized room. En suite bathroom. I stayed on the ground floor which had a table outside and shade. WiFi and laundry service provided. Up to 5 minute walk from the main road and slightly longer to the beach but no big deal. Breakfast provided.
