Cockroaches, broken air conditioning, boiling hot, no lifts, filthy. We ended up here as our other accommodation had double booked. We were pleased to get out. Don’t waste your money by booking to stay here.

I stayed in Shannon Rest after my tireing flight from Finland.Stayed there 3 nights and only rested and enjoyed.So beautifull garden,full of exotic birds.And the quietness was stunning.The manager is very nice young man with a familily of a wife and a young toddler boy.Everybody was helpfull,if I needed some help or information,I only had to ask.The manager,Roshan,has also a very popular beach restaurant called Blue Wave Beach Restaurant,famous of its fresh sea food.And what made my stay there so pleasant,was that the hotel is in walking distance to the beach,restaurants and shops.I didnt have to use tuk tuks or anything.So,all in all,I can highly recommend Shannon Rest to everybody who likes to stay in an original sri lankan hotell,only 15 minutes from airport.

We stayed at Shannon Rest the first night of our stay in Sri Lanka. We were greeted warmly by the owner and his family. Our accommodations were clean and spacious. They treated us warmly, and we were able to enjoy watching their toddler play in the garden. The owner also owns the Blue Wave beach restaurant, so our driver took us there for dinner. We had an outstanding meal, and as we will stay there on our last night of our Sri Lankan visit, we will definitely eat at the Blue Wave again. We've been promised a special meal of lagoon crabs. We're looking forward to ending our trip!

Very good service. The room was big and we had all things we needed. The TV didn't work but that was not a problem for us. The breakfast was almost perfect all thing you can think of were there. And if it weren't there the manager fixed it. The wifi was there sometimes and it is our only complaint. Superstay for two weeks.
