Clean big rooms. It was a good stay with friends and just 1 minutes away from the beach. Owners are very nice. Small parking lot. No food. There was a big balcony and larger washroom. So many restaurants and guest houses near by and easy walk to main road. Hot water was available with a good AC

The room is quite large, well equipped and clean. Same with bathroom. Really couldn't ask more. The staff was friendly and gave us some helpful tips. We had also breakfasts, toast bread with butter and jam, fruit plate, omelette and tea, very good! Actually the best accommodation we had on Sri Lanka!

We enjoyed our time here it is convenient location to the beach. There is seating on the balconies where you can enjoy the lovely views and enjoy the nature around you. The stairs are steep so not suitable for small children or elderly travellers

prime location (not on the beach but close enough) and away from the hustle and bustle. Clean rooms but be wary to book online, it may not be valid when you arrive as they overbook. Staff are accommodating as far as possible.

We booked through booking.com for one night, superior double room with breakfast. The room was on the top floor, oblique views of the sea. Noise from the road below is BAD - get a room at the back of the building if you like a peaceful nights sleep. The bathroom was good, recently renovated & hot shower. The bed comfortable...

We stayed at this lovely place last week, after just arriving from Columbo. The bedrooms are big, spotlessly clean and have air con, if you need it... It is close to the centre of town, but not too close, near the beach and the owners are very friendly.... The top floor rooms have lovely views through the bamboos and we...

We booked this property through Booking.com for 6 nights over New Year. Despite having received a confirmation from booking.com, when we arrived at the property the owner did not have a room for us. He said it is because too many people book and then don't show up, so he gives the room to walk-in customers instead. There were 2...

The guesthouse is located near the beach which is nice but I found my room to be quite stuff and always felt damp. There was a nice balcony to hang out on and watch the monkeys play in the trees. There are many restaurants nearby and the hotel had a laundry service that was reasonably priced. I booked online in...

We stayed at primrose guesthouse for 8 nights at the end of August, just the room no breakfast. We didn't use air conditioning as the ceiling fan was very good and the shower was great with lots of hot water. The guesthouse is ideally located, about 20 seconds from the beach and near lots of restaurants. All the rooms also...
