“Best choice in Tangalle”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

This first class four room guesthouse just up from Goyambokka beach in Tangalle with it's superb food en excellent service was our best choice in Sri Lanka. The manager Newton runs this place impeccably and people come from all over Tangalle to eat in the restaurant, even from hotels where the dinner is included.

Room Tip: Room no.1, it has a private lounge area and outside shower

Stayed there for two nights and it was very good.
The location is nice, close to the beach, the room was clean and the decoration is really nice.
I would definitely recommend this place! The breakfast was good also.
The manager or the main person who we were interacting with didn't really smile but was helpful. One thing i'll remember about Sri Lanka are the people's smile but not there. Still a good guest house.

We stayed here for 4 nights a couple of weeks ago and it was great! Excellent value for money. The room was really nice, staff was really friendly (they took really good care of me when i was sick), food was very good! Only 100 m away from a beautiful and quiet beach. We can only recommend this place!

We stayed in Goyambokka Guesthouse for 8 nights and really enjoyed it. Excellent value for money, well managed and very friendly staff. This is our second time in Sri Lanka and this was our favorite place to stay. And that for not even 4000rs a night.
Just go, find out and say hi to the lovely dog and squirrels in the garden :)

We`ve had a doubleroom,type 2.The guesthouse has totally overrated prices and the owner is not very friendly,he don`t gives a smile,he can`t say hello as we arrive and his `good morning` was also very forced.The breakfast was ok,but take care if you want boiled eggs.

We appologize it you felt uncomfortable your stay at our guest house . Our rates are always the same. We do not have any complains from other reviews regarding rates . The person who looks after the place is not the owner .He is the caretaker (newton). Most of the other reviews says always good about him.

We stayed a couple of times at this guest house and always had lovely time. There are few rooms facing a lovely garden full of beautiful flowers. Rooms are clean, comfortable with a nice bathroom and a small veranda.
The place is very well run, meals are delicious, at breakfast eggs, fresh juice, good selection of fruits, jam/ marmalade.
Dinners are always very good, lovely curries and some delicious grilled fish.
At walking distance there is a small, nice beach
