Very welcoming owner and family. Room basic but very clean and had air con, mosquito nets and a fan. Bathroom ok but only cold water. Good food cooked by owner's wife and good value, as well as adaptable if you suddenly decide you would like lunch. Owner arranged excellent tours for us - we particularly enjoyed Bundala National Park despite...

Went to the Lagoon Inn to go to Bundula NP. Awesome view over the parc. Book a room on 1st floor. Room was clean and good value for the price and location. Went on a breath taking 3.5 hour safari in the afternoon, the host owns a jeep. Very nice trip, so many birds and we were lucky and saw...

This place was a breath of fresh air. So clean and rooms beautifully tiled. The view of the National Park from the balcony is great, we sat and watched the birds with binoculars. The owners are hospitable and helpful. We would re visit if we go back to the area. THe only downside was the rather dull food. It was...

We are Czech family traveling with three small kids. Originaly we planned to stay one night.But after nice dinner when we arrived and an excellent trip to NP Bundalla organised from the hotel we decided to stay another day. The prices for dinner and trip services are low in compare what you get. Rooms are simple but clean.

On our second visit to Sri Lanka, Lagoon Inn is only one of only two places we are re visiting. It is excellent value for money and provides spacious, super clean and well kept rooms. The balcony overlooking Bundala National Park is lovely too. Kamal and his wife provide friendly and helpful hospitality and excellent Sri Lankan cuisine. Everything is...

We stayed one night - we were the only two people there which was a bit weird. The place is clean and cheap but wouldn't recommend staying more than one night as there is nothing else to do once the NP has been visited. The inn sits right on a main road but handy for catching the bus to Tissa....

Who would expect to be in the town of Wollengong - just driving to Sydney and find a delicious seafood (they have meats that looked very good) restaurant? I wouldn't have. So, what a complete surprise to order something new, and wish that I could have had the room for a second order. I had "bugs." Not ordinary bugs but...

Lagoon Inn sits on the main road just south of the turn off to Bundala National park. After a series of overpriced and inadequate hotels, we found Lagoon Inn to be simple, clean, and comfortable and a very good value for money. Outside each room there is a broad, shared balcony with a view over the marshes; at the end...

on the main road, very near the bus stop and the entry to the National Park. We stayed two days to visit the park, the transport was arranged by Lagoon Inn and was superb, the driver was experienced, we saw many birds which was our objective but also saw eight elephants. We ate at the Lagoon and the food was...
