Set in a residential area and being about five minutes walk from the main road, the hotel benefits from its tranquil setting. Rooms are spacious and the early morning chorus of peacock and monkey adds to its charm . Owners are both gracious and helpful, whilst the guest kitchenette is a bonus. If you wish to be near the action...

The place is simple but clean. If you can, take the AC room as the non ac is very hot and humid. Breakfast is OK just as at other places. Toasts,butter jam, tea and eggs and rotti or pancakes which are delicious.

We had an AC room, which was cool, clean and spacious. There's also a patio with table and chairs and a view of the lovely garden! Breakfast is served outside in the garden. Mix of local (fruit, local pancakes) and "Western" (the usual month-old white bread and eggs) and was very filling! A few minutes walk to the beach and...

My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights in this very nice and quite place. At first impression it could seem to stay in a uncomfortable position, but it's enough half day to understand that it is very good, far from the caos of the traffic, close to the best roti/kotti restaurant of Mirissa and immersed in the nature. From the...

We stayed here for 3 nights in January. The location of the guest house is down a lot of little side streets, fine if you use google maps to direct you, otherwise jump in a Tuk Tuk. When we arrived, the owners seemed surprised to see us, and eventually found our booking. No- one spoke English, so it made explaining...

We booked 2 double rooms about 2 months before our trip on booking.com. 12h before our stay the owner of this facility wrote us, that he has only 1 double room available, so he wanted to put 2 double beds in one double room for us.. Fortunately booking.com reacted quickly and cancelled our booking for free. When the owner saw...

We stayed here for 3 days over xmas day and had a lovely stay. The owners were very friendly and we didnt get any hassle whilst we stayed here. The rooms were very clean and dampless.

Rooms are very nice and totally clean. Wifi is OK now, they may have had bad signal in the past but as we were here with our friend who works in IT, he fixed it and now there is no problem. Owner really friendly, she arranged scooters for us for reasonable price. The place is calm and located around 100...
