Had Prawn Curry, very spicy, and the flavours in the curry sauce were amazing. Best we have tasted in Hikkaduwa. Cooked freshly as you order. We also had a Chicken curry which we wanted milder but again the flavours were amazing.

4 of us stayed in room 1. Hotel was clean, staff were very attentive. Right on the beach, food was good. We had curry and it was very good!! Nice breakfast. Only thing that could be improved was a clean halfway through our stay - as we stayed a week!

We were 10 days in Hikkaduwa, and as there is a huge range of restaurants and cafes we naturally tried several - but we kept coming back to this one. It really scored high from every point of view. The hotel itself suited us perfectly. The rooms are simply furnished, but comfortable, very reasonably priced and spotlessly clean. The best... More

The best place to take breakfast, lunch, dinner and check waves in Hikkaduwa. Good food, owner and staff very friendly. Maybe in the rooms 5 and 6 you may hear more noise because they are more close to the road, But not so much.

Amazing little place! Very nice service, and having our dinner on the balcony was romantic as well as tasty. A restaurant with a "local feel", not just for tourists. We had mostly seafood, and coming from a country where seafood is the norm, I must say that here the lobster, crab and shrimps were fresh and very tasty.

I should begin by mentioning that I didn't stay at this hotel. I did however see a room and they seem alright. The hotel is beach side and well covered from traffic noise. Hotel part is floor 2 and up with possibilities of sea view. Professional staff and good service and the only working pool table we found in Hikkaduwa!

Value for money accommodation on the beachfront. Restaurant has great atmosphere. Staff sometimes need prodding but at this price who's complaining. Things need improving, like the power and shower head but this is 3rd world, so lets respect that. Wi Fi no charge but only works in the restaurant and at $25 a night you can't do any better.
