“Lovely guesthouse with very friendly owner.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

We stayed here for one night whilst visiting the temple display. The guesthouse is clean and modern. The room we had overlooked the paddy fields to the rear which was a great view. The hotel is located about 5 minutes from the bazaar area with a rickshaw costing 60Rs.

The hotel is what you would expect for a budget guesthouse but what made is stand apart was the owner Suni,l who radiates joviality and friendshit. His son and the rest of the staff are similarly friendly and helpful and we could have not asked for anything more.

Breakfast was continental style and was extra and Sunil even dropped us at the bus station in the morning. We even had mangos fresh from the tree located in the garden.

Wifi is provided however you need to purchase a scratch card which cost 50Rp (25p) for 2 hours which they are happy to get for you so no problem at all. They are also happy to purchase beer for your at the local shop and keep it cold until you are ready.

Great stay and the owner does his hotel proud.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the rice paddy fields at the back.

During our bike trip from Unawatuna we stopped at Kataragama. We not only felt the power of this very special place we were lucky as well to stop at Sunil's Rest. It's a small place with 2 small rooms at the old house and 7 spacious ones at the annex..
Sunil and his family were very friendly and fulfilled all our wished. The food was simple but good and the atmosphere very relaxing.
