You won't be disappointed if you stay here, it is a very peaceful and beautiful sanctuary on the river, ten minutes walk away from the sea ( which in August was wild and windy and we were so pleased we chose not to stay at a beachfront place.) Kumara is the friendliest host and went out of his way to... More

There were only 4 rooms in the hotel. The location of hotel is a bit off from the main road and road was completely empty when we walked down... More

Thanks to the hospitality of the host Mr. Kumar, during our stay in Bentota, we felt like at home. Room on the second floor was very comfortable, clean, nice looking, with balcony and view of the quietly flowing Bentota river. The host every morning prepared a very tasty breakfast of fresh products, with delicious coffee and fresh squeezed juice. First... More

I stayed at Bentota for one night and was lucky to pick this place. The owner stayed in Japan for many years so he has the highest standard on hygiene and guest satisfaction. He showed us local plants and animals in the morning and also brought me the fruit which I asked the name for. It is a short 10-15... More

The location is quiet and the river views are really beautiful. The staff is helpful and kind and the breakfast is good. The rooms are clean but there could have been more toiletries to use. There's also water sport activities available in the river and the Bentota beach is close by.
