Hosts Malcolm and Dave are great fun and incredibly talented chefs. Although I've never stayed at Bedspace I frequent it daily to get my yummy 'green energy' smoothie fix. Very original menu. Delicious, fresh ingredients. Jamie Oliver springs to mind. The food as well as the outdoor kitchen area surrounded by hammocks, decking and lush foliage oozes character. Great vibe. They've just got it right.
I highly recommend it

We had a great stay at Bed Space. The two guys that run the place are very friendly and welcoming. They give great advice on local activities, where to eat, etc...

The location is great, 5 minute walk to the beach and only 5 minute by tuk tuk or taxi to Galle.

The rooms are comfortable and very clean. They have their own balcony.

Breakfeast is very good as well. I believe they make a different kind of breakfast everyday and you always have a few different options to choose from. But it was delicious.

We were sorry not to be able to stay longer. If you're going to Unawatuna, don't look any further, bed space is the place to go to!

We were really quite lucky as my friend and I got invited to a 'dinner party' at Bedspace as I overheard a lady chatting about how amazing the food was so I instantly struck up a conversation being a big food lover.

We were super impressed instantly upon arrival as the secret grogeous garden was lit up with fairy lights which guided us to our first drink... an oyster bloody mary followed which was followed by a fresh homemade cocktails and tasty prawn skewers.

Dinner was served round one large table lit up by lanterns which allowed us to see Dave cooking the next incredible 3 courses which where were expertly explained by Malcom - both guys are obviously huge foodies which was very apparent once we tucked into our amazing food.

Our starter was a gorgeous tuna salad with tortilla chips, followed by a fresh pallet cleanser which had a lovely light frothy meringue on top. Main course was superb with the fish having been caught that day which was a nice meaty texture and was beautifully presented.

The meal was finished off with a lovely chocolate desert with a salted caramel sauce - AAAAAMAZING.

This is definitely a dinner party I would HIGHLY recommend getting yourselves a seat at.

Eventhough we weren't staying we had a peak at the hotel and the rooms were very clean and of lovely décor and from what I hear (and did not surprise me) the breakfasts are the best in Unawatuna!

The hotel, and the rooms are very comfortable. Your hosts are amazing cooks, as well as amazing people. The staff is kind and helpful. If you have never traveled to Sri Lanka before it's one of the best places to start your adventure. We forgot half of our belongings at the hotel, and Malcolm (your host), brought them to us in another town the next day. We looked at the other hotels and B&B in Unawatuna - this is the best one there is without a doubt. Thank you for the memories BedSpace.

We stayed at Bed Space for 4 nights and would highly recommend it. It's in a great location just off the main beach road - Wella Dewawala. Malcolm and David have created a really friendly, relaxed vibe in the lovely garden and communal areas.

The highlight for us has to be the amazing breakfasts cooked up in the outside kitchen. Every day we were treated to a different tasty morning feast . We also enjoyed one of their dinner parties which are not be missed if you are lucky enough to be there when one is happening. There were really exciting dishes serves using all the best Sri Lankan produce and it was a really fun socialble evening .

We stayed in the deluxe room on the top floor which was really spacious and had views across the jungle like garden. The guys were really knowledgable and helpful giving us all best tips of things to do in Unawatuna and around Sri Lanka.

While the place is located not directly on the beach front but maybe a 5 minute walk away this shouldn't stop you from booking accommodation there. While prices are higher as compared to many other places in town, rooms are big and clean and the breakfast is excellent. It is tailor made to your needs ( we were diving on 1 day, so they prepared some fresh fruit for us early morning and some proper breakfast on our return). We had salmon bagels (yummy - with bagels being home made) and a poached egg - try it, you won't be disappointed

This place is absolutely awesome! The fact that we initially booked 2 nights, and then prolongued for one night more, and for night more... and then after 2 days in Kandy came back again... definitely says something! Making clients happy is in Malcolm's and David's nature: by delucious food they cook in front of you, by funny talks, readiness to help at any time, and by the way they solve any issue or problem.
Don't worry that the guesthouse is not on the beach. Just 7-10 minutes walk, but you will live in a quiet paradise garden!
So, if you are an aged couple, a young couple, gay couple, a group of friends or a lone traveller with open mind and positive attitude, this place is what you need!

Room Tip: All the rooms are fine, but the rooms on the top floor have bigger balconies and view
