Reviewed September 10, 2011

My son and I stayed at Rock House for two nights and enjoyed it very much. It is about 100 meters from the main road, and is both quiet and offers easy access to the beach and all the restaurants. Some of its spacious rooms are built right into the side of huge rocks - quite distinctive and charming. Did not eat here, so can't comment on the food. People were very pleasant and helpful, and we recommend it warmly.

Like a few other reviews have said this is a cheap no frills hotel but we really loved our view which was the best in Unawatuna for sure. Above the main building they have built a bunch of appartments on top of the cliffs. It's a bit of a zig zag to get up there but well worth it. Our appartment was acid yellow but extremely roomy with tables and comfortable chairs. We had a kitchen without a hob but it did have a good fridge and was somewhere to make tea and prepare fruit salad and crud for breakfast. After a cool nights sleep it was really awesome to sit on the balcony and look out over the entire bay. The sound from the discos was annoying but as it's Unawatuna you are going to get that anywhere you rest your head. Cool breeze and awesome view; well worth it.

Rock house is cheap. Its not fantastic. Not very clean. But the location is great. getting away from the beach makes it quiet. The balconies wonderful for a relaxing afternoon. I would recomend it for a no frills stay in Unawatuna. If u are not looking for great service, spottless cleanliness or a great breakfast. If u want things like that. Stay at the Nor Lanka hotel. The best hotel in Unawatuna by far.
