We stayed for 3 nights in TBH, and went away with very little reason to complain. Absolutely brilliant location right on the beach, simple but extremely comfortable rooms, good breakfast and above all, dedicated and passionate staff who pull no stops in making sure you're comfortable.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review, we appreciate your comments. Please note the next door party was not a properly organized one and the hotel was not even informed prior.

A lovely stay at Thraproban hotel. A 1 minute walk to the beautiful beach where there are a range of cafes/ restaurants. Basic room with tv and wifi and fabulous breakfast. Possibly sea facing rooms are a little nicer. A ten minute tuk tuk to Galle. People are very friendly. Would recommend.
