There is a bit of flaking paint here and there but the place is very clean and well maintained. It is surrounded by restaurants and there are... More

Budget Hotel in that Road. Good Restaurants around the hotel. Hotel had a very clean swimming pool, which was surprise for me in Budget hotel. I Guess the hotel is run by the family, So received very homely treatment. Big & clean rooms.

On our first day in Srilanka we came straight from the AirPort to Windmill beachhotel. The people where very helpfull, the room was good and the swimmingpool very relaxing. They also had a good place for our bicycles and even where prepared to keep the boxes for our flight back. A lovely place for a good price.

Amazing hotel, surrounding the star class hotels in the sea side. Staff were very helpful and honest. The manager was very helpful too. Nice warm swimming pool made us relaxed. I recommend this clean, quiet and affordable rates for my friends too. Hope to see you in Sri Lanka.

Windmill hotel is not an exciting hotel indeed. Room is not so big and bathroom is very basic. In the morning we found cockroachs in the bathroom and in the corridor. Even if you want to spend just one night ,don't stay here.
