Clean room, friendly staff and excellent location! The room and bathroom were the cleanest we came across in our travels through Sri Lanka. Obviously this is a budget guest-house, so it's basic, but basic is good when it's clean! The price was very reasonable, too. We stayed here for 2 nights and loved it. My only recommendation is that they...

We stayed there for 3 nights. The rooms are clean with private bathroom, fan and mosquito net. The lady was extremely helpful. It's close to the beach and all the bars. Go there if you are looking for nice stay in good price. On the way to White House there is an agency which organizes Whale Watching trips, we booked...

Stayed there for 4 nights so I can definitely say it was a nice cheap place! Not all to special, but basic value for money. Room came at 1300rs /night w/o breakfast. Helped me to rent a scooter which was nice. Only downside was no hot water and no water whatsoever at some point. If you are ok with no...

A very friendly house with clean, spacious rooms and a feeling that you are really at home. Good value for money. Basic but you have everything you need. Clean sheets. They also gave us plenty of water. We didn't eat here but I believe you can ask for meals if you'd like.

The woman who invited us into White House was extremely friendly and smiley. She gave us an excellent price for whale watching, which we were happily able to negotiate down further. The Wi-fi was probably the best we saw in Sri Lanka. However, the room wasn't the cleanest and there were plenty of bugs, but that's sri lanka for ya....

This basic guesthouse is located on a side street off the main road making it both quiet and convenient to the beach (5 min. walking). The highlight of our week stay was the family- the mother and daughters were smiling, friendly and delightful to our whole family and made us feel welcome in their guesthouse. We had two standard rooms...

Good for a budget stay and a very friendly and kind owner lady but the overall experience was still just 'Ok'. The room was very hot time to time as the fan was from the ancient era, made quite a noise and we were a bit scared that huge thing might fall off from the roof onto our head while...

The best veg-roti can be found at the small restaurant attached to this family run homestyle guest house, Central but set back from the main road in Mirissa. Our hosts were lovely and welcoming, and the rooms were spacious and clean. Only downside is that the wifi was rather slow, but the rooms and bathrooms (with hot water) were great,...
