Well where to start! I first came across this wonderful place as it was next to the guest house I was staying at. As a traveling vegan I'm always on the lookout for amazing vegetarian and vegan restaurants. The first night I ate here I had the most wonderful baked lentil curry with spinach brown rice and aubergine puffs on...

We stayed here for 2 nights one weekend. The Guest House only has a few rooms, maybe about 7 - 8 (I'm not exactly sure) but they are comfortable, clean and basic. We rang a few days before arriving to book a room and we were told they were full but they had the premium room left. This is basically...

We didn't stay at the guest house but after trying the food next time we visit we definitely will. Lovely family run restaurant, service with a smile. The food was the best we had tasted on the island-brilliant vegetarian, all local produce, so good we went three times in three days!! All I can say is 5 star food, 5...

We came across South Ceylon as it was recommended in our Rough Guide to Sri Lanka, the family run business welcomed us with open arms when we arrived, and agreed a very reasonable rate for a three bedroom, A/C room with ensuite. The room was by far one of the best we stayed in, clean and comfortable and with endless...

It was fantastic to arrive in Unawatuna and be received so well by South Ceylon guesthouse. Our room was clean and fresh with hot water and new mosquito net. The bed was comfy and sheets were fresh and new. Unlike a lot of hostels the double bed was actually a double bed, not two singles put together. Food was delicious...

Warm welcome by the family. Simply room design, but it's clean and comfy. It's perfect for a traveler to have a ikea table lamp besides your bed which helps you to read at night, it was very thoughtful. It maybe a bit noisy in the morning, since women are already starting to prepare breakfast, but it's ok cause you'll have...

The room and bathroom were clean and bed was very comfy and clean. There was an incident with a very large cockroach in the room but I don't believe this had anything to do with uncleanliness, just the hot room. The guy there very kindly got rid of it for us, although he didn't look keen! Only part that let...

We loved our stay here. The premium room was excellent value. Room was bright, great (quiet) air con, excellent shower in large bathroom, very comfy bed and pillows, desks and storage space so a good base for a weeks stay. Oh and tea making facilities. There are mediation classes 08.30 most mornings, I think the calm vibe from that seeps...
