I went to Shahira Hotel while my stay in Nilavile. We arrived in the evening after a long drive from the east coast and we were pleased to quickly be taken to our rooms while my partner sorted out the checking in. We got three rooms next to each other. Rooms are basic without any luxury, but the important thing... More

:) Close to the beach and Pigeon island, eating in the nice garden watching chipmunks, manager was very nice and organized everything for us. Good breakfest. :( Manager asked me to write this review at least 7 times - quite annoing. Rooms were clean but not very practical - not possible to close outside doors (smashing by wind if you...

This hotel is not safe for female travelers. The windows in the rooms do not lock. At 2am I woke up to one of the staff opening the shade to my window and looking in at me. There is wire that covers the window from the inside but there is a hole big enough to stick a hand and arm... More

We're backpacking through SL and this is one of the best stays so far (homestays, hostels). The 12 rooms are in U-formation around a beautiful shade garden. The stay is 1min walk from the beach, right at Pigeon Island. The hosts are super friendly, the food has a reasonable price and is very nice. The atmosphere is super relaxed. A... More

All the Staff were very friendly and helped us with many things. Short walk to the beautiful beach which is good for swimming and access to pigeon island. Rooms are basic and a little tired but the price and location are excellent. Was off peak so very quiet. Good option in the area.

We decided against staying in Trincomalee, and found this place right next to the beach. Helpful owners, and budget accommodation. Good wildlife in the gardens, lots of different lizards and birds. I imagine could get fairly noisy in peak season

The rooms are old but they look clean and are comfortable and spacious, I had enough space to practice yoga in the mornings. There was a bad smell coming from the bathroom sometimes but it was not a big deal. It was the best value for money compared to the guest houses nearby. We paid 2800 per night for a... More

The room was clean but not spotless. No AC, but it's ok. It is calm the staff very welcoming. The best point of the hotel is the situation, you have to walk 15 meters and you're in front of a long and beautiful beach
