#10 of 169 B&Bs / Inns in Weligama
My name is Raja, I was born in Weligama and I have been working in tourism for 32 years. My Guest House was recommended by Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, Footprint and other guidebooks, but the Tsunami destroyed the buildings in 2004. I started to rebuild everything and opened again in 2010. I offer a laid-back atmosphere home for my guests. My place is ideal for budget travellers who are looking for cheap rooms in a friendly and quiet place close to the beach. Facilites: - free wifi - computer use - 24 hours electricity - free bicycle use - laundry service - restaurant We are happy to help you organizing tours (like whale/dolphin watching or a trip to the countryside) and provide you with all the necessary information about Weligama and Sri Lanka.

Raja is a very symapthic man, which made it nice to sleep at his place. The double room had a mosquito net and 2 fans, which was nice. Also the shower was a good one. The prices are very cheap here (one of the cheapest in town), so the rooms are quite basic. The matress is very thin, but that is also the case for other hotels in town. Unfortunately, the bathroom was quite dirty.

It was really amazing stay in Raja's guest house. Mr. Raja is really friendly and good person. The place is close to the beach and value for the money. Not the best room but good value for money. The overall vibe of the house is really amazing. You may Mr. Raja is singing songs whole evening with all the guests.

One of the best places I've ever stayed. Raja and his staff are so kind and will look after you extremely well. Great food, staff, clean and one super close to the beach. Can't wait to go back and hang out.

That is the best guesthouse in my live! At least at this moment) Raja and Thilina thank you very much for your hospitality! Me and my friend spent a week in this guesthouse and we had everything - nice room, delicious food and great company. We were like a family, coz Raja served one table for all holidaymakers.

Very good value for price. Mr. Raja and the staff are very friendly and make a big effort to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The vibe in the place is really nice, every night people sit together at the table, and so it's a good place to meet new people.
