Tandem Guest house is situated on the land side of Galle Rd however the beach is just across the road, only 20 metres. The owner, Sunil Seniviratne goes out of his way to be helpful to all guests and the rest of the staff are also very kind and courteous. Local transport in the form of buses and tuk tuks... More

We chose Tandem from the TA reviews. It was great. Spotlessly clean, great breakfast of fruit, eggs and toast and a huge pot of tea. 1 minute to the beach across the road. A nice sitting area outside each room and air conditioning. This is a great, low cost guesthouse. We recommend it.

Across the road from the beach. Lovely fruit platter, eggs and toast for breakfast. I highly recommend this accommodation. It is very well priced especially considering the huge breakfast! The rooms were cleaned daily and the wifi was fast and reliable during our stay.
