“Best place in this price class!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

In our 3 week sri lanka trip we were in about 10 different hotels/guesthouses (price between 2000-4000 rps). This one was by far the best. For 3000 we had AC, the biggest bed ever (I'm 1.93 and could lie all the way!) and a good shower (it was nit just dropping, but real "pressure" for warm and cold water).
The room was also very clean and the staff very friendly. We only ate breakfast here, which was okay. The toast was not so good, we had better! Still 100% recommended.

Stayed March 2014, traveled as a couple

It's a great experience of staying in Palitha Guest house. The owner, Palitha, he is a very nice guy and helpful. The price is the greatest value during my travel in Srilanka. You just want to stay more than you've planned. The rooms are really spacious, clean, tidy, comfortable, and of course with good price for this services and environment. Palitha and his family is just next to the guest house so you can get their friendly help any time. Besides, there is yoga class and message services within this guest house. You walk a few steps, with small amount then you can enjoy the morning and evening yoga classes. The yoga teacher, Asiri, he is also a nice and friendly person. After finishing the yoga class, you can also pay for the message which is just next door. The oil message is excellent. All people in here just make you feel so warm and would like to stay longer than expected. Highly recommend this guest house to all travelers.

Room Tip: Only 4 rooms, all four rooms are great. It will be better to book in advance coz it's always fu...

It's great time with our travel time in Unawatuna. Good accommodation. I recommend this place who travel in sri lanka. there have great people who need help they will help you. The rooms are very well appointed and clean. The mosquito net did not have holes which is a common problem in most guest houses. Breakfast is cheaper than most places in town. The owners are extremely friendly

I stayed here for 2 weeks and would definitely recommend it to anyone. The rooms are spacious and clean with a big comfy bed. The owners are so lovely and helpful as well as it being great value for money. The only drawback is that's its about a 5-10 minute walk to the beach but everything else about the place outweighs this and there's lots of shops to look at along the way. If I come back to Unawatuna I would definitely stay here again.

Me and my partner stayed at this guesthouse for a couple of nights but we extended it to 6 nights as we loved it here! Staff is lovely especially palitha and his wife. Room is clean, spacious and hot water shower, bed is comfy provided with mostiquo nets. I felt like I wanted to pay more to the owners as the price they quoted is more than fair, compared to other guesthouses I stayed, this is the best one! So at least I can do is write an review as they really deserve the good reviews! :-) will be going back here again if I go back to Sri Lanka. Location is fairly good, only 5 minutes walk to beach, on way there is lot of shops and restaurants to visit. Wifi is great in room too, very strong.

Stayed here for 3 nights after moving from 'surf city guesthouse' (nothing wrong there but here was cheaper).

The rooms are very well appointed and clean. The mosquito net did not have holes which is a common problem in most guest houses. Breakfast is cheaper than most places in town. The owners are extremely friendly and happy to help you with anything. The lady does not speak much English but always has a smile and will refer you to her husband.

Wifi was strong and reliable and the rooms were big. It cost us 2500rps per night with a/c which actually worked! The walk to the beach is about 5-10 mins, but very easy, just down one road.

Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: The roti shop down the road is fantastic and VERY cheap
