I loved my stay here. My room was clean and tidy and contained a fan, a safe, beach towel and tea making. It was quiet and the bed was comfortable so I slept well. The breakfast in the restaurant was fantastic. Everyone was really friendly and helpful. It's in a great location on one of best parts of the beach. I would have like a fridge in the room but for what I paid, I was very happy.

A lovely beach side hotel / guest accommodation. Clean, spacious and en-suite bedrooms with aircon, comfortable beds and a mini fridge. Staff extremely friendly and food decent (I only had lunch but dinner looked good). The guest house is located on the nicest part of the beach and within walking distance of other bars, shops and restaurants. I originally booked for 2 nights but added on another as I really enjoyed my stay. Be cautious of the many beach sales men and women. Tell them a firm no if you don’t want anything or they will keep coming back and back! This of course has nothing to do with the hotel! I highly recommend this place!

We originally booked two nights at Neela's but stayed four. The location is right on the best part of the beach and walking distance to everything you need (Atm, restaurants, laundry, shopping etc.). The staff is super friendly and laid back but eager to make your stay perfect. The room we had had great A/C, a good fridge, a safe and private bathroom. The bed was comfortable. Room was clean. All in all, a great place to stay if you aren't looking for luxury but do want all the comforts. Beach towels supplied. The hotel also has a bar/restaurant on the beach. Our breakfast was included and just what we needed; the coffee needs a bit of work, however :) Good food, really good Cuba Libres!

Excellent staff and friendly atmosphere. Enjoyed their breakfast ! Close to other bars and restaurants and is on the main Galle road. Surfers Paradise. The property is attached to the beach and hardly twenty steps to the ocean.

When we where in hikkaduwa it was off season, so I'm generally there weren't many guest in this city. This was one the hotels that had more guest than other hotel. The guest were a mix of Sri Lanken and travellers. We got an upgrade, so we got a view to the beach. The staff is friendly and helpfull. The room is very tastefully decorated and the room was big. I loved the romantic four-posted bed. There is a garden where you can sit and meet other people.The hotel also has a restaurant but closed because of off season. A place to relax and explore the city and beach activities.
