Staff is very good, a friendly bunch of guys who will do about anything to make you feel at home. We stayed at the top floor, 2 bedroom, spring mattress, A/C, hot water, excellent water pressure. Had our own terrace, the only bad thing is that the hotel is just by the street, we slept with ear-plugs. Room is a...

I liked it's homely look and sat down for a coffee. I immediately felt comfortable and welcome. We chatted about the area and I...

This place felt just like a home for us in Unawatuna. It is a very cozy place with great hospitality. We felt like the staff were our friends. We booked a standard double room and it was far from our expectations compared to the rest of the places we stayed in Sri Lanka before. Room was super clean and neatly...

Stayed just the one night (unfortunately) at Pipels House. Spent most of the day and evening on the beach and by the bars but Pipels House was a great place to relax and get refreshed. Booked the family room - two double beds (two guys, we didn't fancy sharing the bed) but bathroom is not connected to the room which...

We've just returned from a whistle-stop trip to Sri Lanka during which we booked a 2 night stay at Pipels House. Our decision was based largely on Trip Advisor reviews. We had the room to the front of the house on the 1st floor, which was small, but adequate for our needs and clean. If you want piece and quiet,...

We are traveling with our 2 kids and booked Pipel's house as they has a "family" room available, which can be somewhat difficult to find at times. When we first arrived we were a little surprised to find the room on top of a restaurant filled with young people. It really turned out to be no big deal as things...
