We did not book in advance, but we were warmly welcomed by Mohamed Sadiq. Even though it was still morning, not the usual check-in time, he had already a room ready for us. The property was rather old, though rooms were very large and clean. Located just a short walk (1-2 minutes) from the beach, we had both the possibility to relax at the beach or in the large garden, in which you can enjoy watching the squirrels chasing one another. In addition to this, we had a very good sri-lankan breakfast.

My stay at Shahira has been wonderful, thank you to Mohamed Sadiq and the staff. Always ready to attend to and address any request. My room is spacious and clean including the bathroom, with a reliable and hot shower. Mohamed 's warm hospitality and attention made my time in Nilaveli feel very welcome and carefree. Also need to mention my meals here have been very delicious!! I highly recommend you come and check it out for yourself

I stopped here for a night on my way to Jaffna. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. The manager Mohammed was very informative also. It was the off-season, so come Apr-Jun for better atmosphere in Nilaveli

Shahira is a nice convenient hotel 3 minute walk to the beach and boats to Pigeon island. Shahira is great value and has a sweet garden and clean, spacious rooms. Mohammed gave great service and was helpful with bookings. This hotel has a restaurant and there is another food option across the street. Mosquito net provided although room seemed bug free.
