The Black Beauty Guesthouse is German and Sri Lankan – owned and a really nice and quiet place. It is located in a really good spot if you like to have it quiet because it’s not in the middle of the town. If you walk along the beach, then it takes you about 10 minutes until you in the “city centre”. There are two different kinds of rooms. Those one in the older building are Rs. 2500 and those one in the new building around rs. 5500 (not really sure about it because we stayed in a room for Rs. 2500). There is a little rooftop restaurant where you get breakfast, lunch or dinner. You really have to try the Sri Lankan style breakfast it’s really delicious and something else then toast, jam and spread. The rooms are big and clean. There is hot water, fan, mosquito net and towels. The stuff is really helpful and friendly. It’s a really relaxing place and we would go there again.

Lovely friendly guesthouse. Across the road from the beach but has its own small pool (only open from 9am -6pm). Family friendly too with play equipment.
Nice touches like a squeegee in the bathroom, lots of hooks in the bedroom and a mosquito coil lit on your balcony each evening.
Just don't get your washing done there - the rates are about 4 or 5 times that of a place in Ella!
Not sure what the food is like as we never ate there.

I spent my last few days in Sri Lanka relaxing in this gorgeous guest house. A stone throw from the beach the rooms are based in a tropical garden with birds singing and monkeys swinging from the trees. The restaurant boasts beautiful food overlooking views of the ocean and the rooms are clean and spacious. Above all, the service is exceptional; friendly, professional and nothing is too much trouble. Prices are very reasonable, thoroughly recommend.

I spent 4 days here at the end of a backpacking trip round southern Sri Lanka. My room was simple and well maintained, with fan and A/C and really tastefully decorated. Britta and the team were so friendly and they really did bend over backwards to help me out.. The pool is a great addition, perfect for cooling down during the humid days! Breakfast was a treat, and started me off well for the hot day ahead.. and whilst watching monkeys playing across the roof tops!
Nice touches too like mosquito coils being lit early evening outside your room!...
