We stayed here for 4 nights and found it to be a mixed bag...

Positives: The double bed was very comfy and large, with a good mosquito net fitted around the 4 posts and a decent ceiling fan. The gardens were lovely and eating breakfast in the gazebo was nice. The cost was only 1500 LKR per night!

Negatives: The location isn't brilliant (its a 10 minute walk from the beach) and the bathroom was not very clean, with lots of annoying insects. The wifi is pretty much unusable as it's so slow.

However, the price is not to be sniffed at, and for a short stay this place is fine on the whole if you're on a tight budget.

We stayed in Amarasinghe Royal lodge, "sister" house of the main house. It has 4 en suite rooms in the ground floor, while the host family lives on the upper floor.

Rooms:
We walked in from the street and took last two (out of four) available rooms. The rooms were relatively clean, but the bathroom window on the far right one could not open. It was hard to air it so it got smelly quite fast, and made room really damp. It was also hard to clean it from all the sand we brought from the beach. Hot water came from separate tank, and at the beginning of showering had sulphate smell. Form time to time, there was no water, but that was resolved immediately after the staff was notified (waterpump had to be restarted).
Yard was nothing special, but the breakfasts were really good.
Dinner was also tasty, but more expensive than beach restaurants, and it took a long time before it got from kitchen to our table. check how many people there is in the restaurant. If it is full, you'll wait for your food

Staff:
Very helpful, although only Amade speaks good English.

Location:
On the quiet road, 5 minutes walk from the beach. Main road is 100 m down the street, with several grocery stores and fast food places just on the crossroads (cheap and good!)

I have been in amarasingh guest house for nearly one week in the "peacock" part: it was just wonderful. After a whole beach-sun and sea day it was just fantastic to relax in a fresh green silent and tropical oasis. Indu and the rest of the staff are just so nice and helpful that you immediately feel home (also thanks the GOOD food and great bfasts). Furthermore the "massage guys" are very professional and I recommend full body massages while you are there!
thanks for the wonderful time...miss ya!

We booked to stay here in January.the place was so dirty we cancelled.The bathroom hadn't been cleaned and there were gloopy rings of stuff on the shelf,the sink was grubby.The bedroom was also really unpleasant...there was so much dust and dead insects on the tops of the mosquito nets that you would have had an asthma attack getting under them.It was hugely disappointing for the price.The situation is lovely,but the cabins need a thorough clean and an update.They are tired and in need of radical care. The main house also appeared dirty and we didn't feel we wanted to eat there,either.It is as though they got themselves favourable reviews in the guide books and have sat on their laurels for the past few years.

Room Tip: To be avoided.... unless you are not worried about hygiene.

The house is fantastic, you can enjoy privacy in your own room, even when this is not a 5 star hotel. People in kitchen cook very well, and the internet connection is good. The environment is beautiful, with a luxurious garden where you can enjoy a cold beer. Nice place.
