Vi overnattet 6 døgn på Sunil og hadde et herlig opphold etter en rundreise i Sri Lanka med en overnatting på hvert sted. Vi anbefaler det gjerne. We stayed 6 nights and had a lovely stay. We can truly recommend this place. We were taken care as family.

Over priced for it's location. Good spacious rooms but very narrow staircase to the rooms upstairs. The so called sea view rooms are actually with a view of other hotels across the street with a glimpse of the sea. The rooms do not even provide a single water bottle as complimentary service. The restaurant downstairs has a great ambience to...

Convenintelly located two minutes walk from the beach. Hellen and Sunil were very nice hosts, breakfast very good. they don't clean the room every day but we were there for only few nights... the only thing is that unfortunately is noisy at night because of the music from the beach bars, nothing to do with the place!

Sunil is a nice place to stay with a beautiful garden restaurant. Ana verage sri lankan breakfast is included but you can upgrade it, if you want muesli, fruits and other extras. Rooms are ok, a bit humid though (mould!) and matresses old and not very comfortable. The location is good, close to the beach and other Restaurants and shops.

This is the place! Great staff, great food, clean rooms, great balcony, service minded staff, just across the beach. The breakfast is an experience itself! They offer laundrey services and wi-fi. The garden is very peaceful and you can eat dinner or just enjoy a cup of coffee there during the day.

I came to Sunil's for breakfast with my baby daughter; the staff was attentive and well trained; the place was clean and we had lovely ventilated spot overlooking the garden, which was great considering the heat that morning. A nice selection on the menu at great value. Breakfast arrived promptly and well presented. But what made it special was the...

This Guest House is also a café. The interior is garden inspired, and it feels like you are sitting outside. Very cozy! The rooms are very affordable, a breakfast menu is included in the price every morning (and let me tell you that the breakfast is such an amazing experience!) The room I stayed in had a lot of space,...

We didn't stay in the guesthouse here but noticed the lovely garden one evening and stopped off for coffee. The garden setting is lovely, very tranquil and charming. The iced coffee was great and they had a wide selection of cakes and drinks. A really nice place to relax for a few hours.

You wont find many well decorated guesthouses and gardens in Sri Lanka this good. The combination of design, atmosphere and welcoming feel here are superb! Combine this with the amazing fresh ground Italian coffee and you cant go wrong! Very good food as well.
