We stayed there for one night on a room only basis @ LKR 7,275.00 (approx USD 67.00 at the time). The hotel is extremely basic. It has narrow hallways and stairs and our room had 2 double beds and a pantry area (so this may have been a "suite"). It was an air conditioned room, with attached toilet and shower. The bed had clean sheets and the toilet was clean, but the rest of the room looked old and dusty. The TV didn’t work, but we didn’t bother checking with maintenance on this, as we didn’t have time.
We got to the hotel around 11.00pm, left for a whale-watching excursion at 6am the next morning and when we got back to the hotel after whale-watching it was past noon and time to check out. We didn’t have any meals at the hotel.
The hotel is on the beach, but it is not on the best part of Mirissa beach (this is in the southern end of the bay, where as the nicer area is the northern end). We were desperately looking for a place to stay in Mirissa only to go whale watching and given that it was whale watching season, it was next to impossible to find accommodation. Had we looked for accommodation sooner and made reservations ahead of the season, we would have found a place which was better value for money – will definitely not stay there again.
