The manager (bald man) at the guesthouse/restaurant was very rude and only acknowledged certain guests. He is far from hospitable! There was a foul smell at the entrance which was not taken care of! Rooms were not bad and quite spacious but overall not a very good experience.

Prime location and seafood at the restaurant is good. They have a tie up and take advance bookings at Badora spa and Whale watching with Danushka at no extra cost. Apart from this everything else is below average. Rooms are not so good looking with cement flooring and room service is not that great either. This means the price that... More

Me and my husband stayed at Wadiya Guesthouse for six nights and had mixed feelings when we left. The staff was weird - sometimes friendly, sometimes we had the feeling that they were making fun of us. It did not give us a good feeling. The room was dark but we loved the AC. I cannot agree with other travelers... More

We booked here for the location. However we were slightly worried about the very mixed reviews on here. Shouldn't have worried, staff were very helpful, albeit a little slow. Good location, nice rooms. Good price compared to other places.

The location is good and I think because of this they feel like they don't need to make no effort. We felt that the place was very unfriendly which is a shame as run by the right people it could be amazing. The rooms were good for the price, comfortable bed, to and fridge. We stayed for 3 nights no... More

We have stayed here two times and both have been very nice. Service is excellent, breakfast nice and some of the rooms have beautiful view to the sea. The fish at the restaurant is the best I've ever had! Wi-Fi doesn't work in the rooms

Great location, lively restuarant on beach front but music went on late into the night, making it hard to sleep. Room was good size but if you are on ground floor hard to not have your shutters closed. 5000 RS per night

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. It is in a great location, the food at the restaurant is amazing! The bar staff work really hard and are so friendly. They were so helpful when I hurt my foot on the beach (thank you Banda and the other staff - much appreciated). The rooms are quite basic but the beds... More

Stayed here for one week in Feb 2015. There are plenty of other more budget choices in Mirissa but for a seafront property with all the amenities it was the best value we found. The whole complex was kept impeccably clean - a miracle considering the amount of sand that gets tramped through! They don't clean your room unless you... More
