This guest house really is a special little corner of the world. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Charminda even organised out airport transfer. The food in the beach restaurant was some of the best seafood in Hikka. I would also highly recommend the local curry special (order 24 hours in advance). We will definitely come back. Location is...

Immaculate rooms with all the little touches, quiet and private. Really friendly staff and perfect beachside location. Not much to do around the town but lounging on the beach was fine! Reasonably priced breakfast which filled me up all day. Ate both nights in the hotel restaurant which was delicious. Good range of alcohol for an evening sunset drink!

Great time spent at Neelas guest house! They sent us a van to pick us up from the airport, rooms are very clean and we were lucky to get one with an amazing view over the ocean. The food was delicious and the seafood was fresh and cooked with so much love :) Staff are friendly and helpful! Thank you... More

Had a great stay here. The third floor room takes up the entire floor. Well worth the trek up the 3 flights of stairs. Spacious room. View of the beach. Table and chair on the balcony looking on the town. Awesome location in the town and on the beach. Got a nice treatment in the centre directly across the way... More

We loved staying here and ended up increasing our stay for another night as we did not want to leave! The people were lovely and were willing to chat to us about the history of the area. We had anything and everything we needed at Neela's and ended up neglecting all the sights nearby as we just wanted to enjoy... More

Neela's guest house is one of the best places we stayed in Sri Lanka. The location is perfect and the rooms are modern and nice and clean! There is an extra shower outside if you come of the beach which keeps your room clean. Food is good as well!!

The room we stayed in was clean with a lovely modern bathroom. The restaurant does amazing food, we ended up eating there most of the time as it was the far the best food around. Its right on the beach, so its perfect for a relaxed holiday.

We had a room with a balcony and partial sea view which was excellent. Comfy bed, clean and tidy. The staff were amazing and greeted us at midnight and even checked us out at midnight as we had been out having celebration drinks. Such lovely people who are eco friendly and are working on making changes towards being more environmentally... More
