Having stayed at Bridden’s Place several times I can heartily recommend it. The owners Harry and his wife Chamali are superb hosts. They will do their best to make your stay very enjoyable. Chamali and her helpers cook all meals to order and are always of a very high quality. She cooks western food and Sri Lankan. The fresh fish and sea foods are especially good.
Harry will arrange trips for you with local drivers for short or long tours of the island. The place is secluded and in a beautiful spot right next to the beach. There is a swimming pool which is kept absolutely clean and is always sparkling.
The guest cabanas are also well maintained, very clean and with very comfortable beds.
I cannot praise Bridden’s Place enough.

We visited Briddens family for the second time and were satisfied again. Very nice family run place when you plan to rest and experience local cousine, you still get European standard as the owner is Dutch. Ideal place - not far from the airport as also a good starting point to take a tour through the island (owner planned and did arrange a 5 day tour for us). Very nice cabanas, a big swiming pool, table tennis and excellent service - we did feel very warm hospitality all the time as also security to get help and advice if needed.

Room Tip: both cabanas are very nice, there are additional rooms in the main building

Spent there almost 2 weeks in Feb 2013 thanks to my sister's recommendation who was there last year with her family (2 small kids). Very clean, nice spot, rather private calm place without any big tourist hassle. Great swimming pool; you can easily approach the ocean which is next to the place just crossing the way behind Bridden's.
Absolutely excellent and delicious Sri Lankan food (mainly the breakfast :) ), friendly staff.

Very good value for money.
This nice and clean resort is away from any other touristic location. This means that you might be the only tourist in this area. This can be an advantage or disadvantage, depending on what yo're looking for.
We liked the quiet atmosphere of Briddens Place a lot but we mainly stayed in the guest houses beautiful garden as beach sun bathing and swimming in the sea was not so attractive.

Very good food for an absolutela reasonable price.
Very nice pool and garden.

Accidentally picked up place to stay. We're suprised. Clean rooms, nice garden, tasty food, Sri lankan specialities (When ordered), and most friedly staff (including the Owner). Nice place to stay if you are looking for nice and relaxing holiday without any tourist hassle.

Room Tip: Just a two cabanas. Small place, but you'd feel like in home
