We had the superior deluxe room with balcony. Room was large and spacious and the bed comfortable. The hotel seems a little unfinished though and had quite a few flaws throughout the room that I don't think are suitable for a $40/night room. No breakfast included and power goes on and off.

Thanks for the review we have just finished the renovation on 30th december 2015. We offered you a room with air conditioning and sea view in the third floor. We have price the rooms according to the season. These are brand new rooms and we have not notice or inform by guest any power problems We will attend to it. Have a nice holiday in sri lanka


Great place, nice staff, nice breakfast, nice dorm and had a great stay! The guest house just being renovated. You can have sea view if you take the upper floor private rooms, I will be back for my last day of the trip for the private room!

Thanks for the review All upper floors, will be access via stairs


It was a good place to stay, good rooms, hot water, good wifi. Close to the beach, not so close to the centre. They were still renovating. The place missed a good vibe, not much contact with the owner.

Thanks for the review.We appreciate for your genuine opinion about your stay.I am sorry that i could not interact with guest due to tight schedule with our renovation work. Renovating was end on 24th December 2015.


Comfortable rooms and nice staff. Nothing incredibly special though. Only stayed a night before flying out
