The rooms and toilets are basic but good for the price.Toilets in very poor state.The SriLankan food is tasty.The service is average.A good place to stop on your way to have a SriLankan meal or tea.The ambience is poor but view is good.

When we are at Tangalle, looked for a place for lunch. Somebody said this is a good place. Lunch was perfect. Good tasty foods. So we decided to stay there. But, rooms are terrible. Our room AC was not properly working. When we asked about that, they said that's the maximum. No bulbs in bathroom. I had to change one...

We tried to go here for a late lunch (about 2.30pm) as it seemed like the only place open that we could find. There were quite a few locals inside so we figured that was a good sign. As we walked in nobody helped us or offered us where to sit. We couldn't tell who worked there and who didn't....

Immediately behind Tangalle's fishing harbour, the old Dutch rest house is a quaint relic of Dutch imperial days, with an interesting collection of old photos showing the damage done to the area by the tsunami some years ago. Now operating like an Australian motel, it is in need of some tender loving care

The staff are very warm and respectful to their guests and serve great tasting Sri Lankan cuisine. You can always count on this place to have lunch no matter how late you are. You can even have a bath...

We dropped in here for late lunch on our way back to Colombo. The place looked like it belonged to a bygone time with shabby look and furniture, and we were attended on by a rather old man himself. He was friendly and helpful though and made us feel quite welcome. The menu didn't have much of a choice but...

Whenever I go to Tangalle, it was always a great feeling. Long beaches with blue waters and white sands, high roads, nice people, good food. And many more. This time also I went to Tangalle rest house for lunch and it was such a horrible place. Waiter (who is also a.room boy, about 65 years old) was chewing beetles. I...
