Reviewed November 25, 2005

this is a cheap and basic guest house with dark and dingy rooms. there is no hot water and no AC - only celing fans. the rooms have 2 narrow single beds which are not very comfortable. breakfast is taken in the open-air dining area. the few staff on duty are friendly and helpful. the location is good for the beach - only a short walk. the nearest supermarket is about 15 minutes walk away - up a steep hill. evening meals are not available but there are a few outside dining options to choose from. this place is ideal for those on a very limited budget but there are better alternatives nearby.

I stayed at this small family owned guest house in Mount Lavinia for two months and loved every minute! Located 2 minutes walk from the beach and 5 minutes from the main road and supermarket it is ideal. The rooms were cleaned daily by the friendly staff with hot water and AC available on request.

The food and service were excellent at all times. This guest house is a gem of Sri Lanka and I would recommend it to anybody looking for a quiet, friendly and cheap stay on the beautiful island of Sri Lanka!!
