“The perfect place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

We stayed at Beach Inns for 9 nights in March 2014 and wish we were back there now!
Big thank you to Fiona, Indiga and all the staff who made us feel welcome very single day. Beautiful location, great food, friendly staff.... I could go on and on!
Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone passing through - both long and short stays.
Hope to see you again in the future.
All the very best to you all. D&Z

I spent 6 nights here in February 2014 and I must say that this is one of the best beach hotel I ever stayed in. I am not used to superlative comments, but Beach Inns is what I would call a "Whaaaou place" from the first second you arrive. Everything is close to perfect: price, rooms, food, very kind staff, wifi but above all the localisation right on the sea shore is exceptionnally good, with overwhelming view from the terrace and from the room, and with a nice small beach with sun chairs and shadow. Dining in the terrace in the evening is an enchantment with candles lights and the noise of the waves.

Had a great time here with my family. We booked for 1 night but stayed for a week. The place was so friendly and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Kids had a great time playing and swimming at the private beach. As the food is all freshly prepared the kitchen was able to accommodate for different taste in food. All the food prepared was delicious.

Room Tip: If hot water is important to make sure to book their deluxe rooms where hot water is in good supply.

We stayed here recently and had a pleasant time. It's a family run hotel on the beach and they also offer food all day including breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks etc. The food here is good with lots of choice and they make REALLY nice pancakes! Try the one with coconut!

The reasons why this isn't a 5 is because of the following:

1. It was extremely hard to find, unless you know the area then its really difficult. We travelled down by scooter and lots of hotels have signs pointing where to turn but not this place! To make it easier for travellers please put signs up so people can find you!
2. This is budget accommodation so I cannot really complain about the price but I would recommend giving the rooms (or at least room 1) a lick of new paint. The room is very tired looking, lot's of marks all over the walls and the bathroom gets rather smelly!


Other than that this place is very nice and the team here are all really accommodating and friendly.

TIP: Beware that the sea infront of the hotel can be VERY choppy and with a strong currency. If you travel down the road to get back on to the main road on the way you will see beautiful came sea with a lovely bit of beach, this was much nicer for a swim. :)

This family Guesthouse is an oasis in Polhena with direct access to the most picture perfect Beach.
Accessible located near Matara, Mirissa and Galle, we finally choose this calm relaxing place as a base for our week discovery of the south.
The rooms are comfortable and the food is nice.
It is a place that you immediately feel at home in and though Basic in many ways the owners Indika and Fiona a mixed couple of Scottish Sri Lanka nationals where super hosts and couldn't help you enough.
Price quality ratio this place is a Jewel!

Small family run place with great hospitality. One of the few accommodation places with it's own beach and sea frontage. The food was reasonably priced. room were clean (our room had no TV, but it wasn't a deal breaker). We manage to see sea turtles in the from the balcony,

We spent much more time at Beach Inns than we planned at the beginning of our Sri Lankan adventure and we are on our way back there to celebrate the end of our journey and my birthday. It's a truly unique, quiet place which attracts nice, relaxed people. Fiona and Indika are wonderful-always helpful, always jolly and always making sure everyone is being taken care of! The food is great - fresh, delicious and always freshly made to order from scratch which is always important to us! The private beach is lovely- swimming by the sunrise just before the breakfast is just wonderful! We sent many people we met on our way to this fantastic place and we strongly recommend you give it to everyone!
