This hotel has a great location less than 200m from Nilaveli. The manager Mohamed Sadiq was very welcoming and helpful setting us up with a guide to organise tours. The rooms are simple but have everything we needed at a good price. I would recommend it to anyone coming to Nilaveli

The atmosphere is very relaxing as the hotel has a big garden, close to the sea. The rooms are really big and the service is very good. Especially Mohammed Sadiq his charming "good morning Sir" is a nice start into the day! We really recommend this hotel

This hotel is walking distance from Nilaveli beach & from the bus stop. We stayed here for 2 nights from 13-15 Sep. The rooms were clean & tidy. There are 2-3 home style restaurants as well closeby. All and all a really good budget place to stay.
