We stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is located off the main high street so it's lovely and peaceful. Our room was spotlessly clean, big comfortable bed with a mosquito net, fridge, kettle, good shower, and a lovely balcony. We had breakfast each morning with our stay and it was very nice. Water isn't provided for free, but it's only 90lkr for a 2L bottle. The hotel doesn't have a generator for when there are nationwide powercuts unfortunately, but hopefully they will stop soon. We would definitely recommend staying here!
A lovely budget hotel with everything you need for a comfortable but inexpensive stay in Marissa. The room we had was on the top floor and had a nice size balcony, a fair sized bedroom and a big bathroom. We had a fridge, kettle with tea and coffee and good working aircon and a fan. The bed had nice mosquito nets and fresh smelling bedding and was very comfortable. The shower had plenty of hot water and the sink is big if you need to do a little laundry (a handy drying rack on the balcony). A nice breakfast is included, with eggs, toast, sausage and a different Sri Lankan savoury each day and also a delicious home made fruit juice. We were there 6 days and the room was completely cleaned with fresh bedding and towels etc on our 3rd day which was perfect for us. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach and to the main road which has shops, a supermarket and some restaurants. Our main reason for 5* is the lovely family that run the hotel, they could not be nicer or more helpful, really lovely people I really didn’t want to leave! Look out for the monkeys playing in the trees in the morning, a lovely way to start the day with a nice cup of tea!…
Small tidy place with all basics in place and within walking distance of the beach. Very accommodating staff who went way out to make our stay comfortable. They even arranged a local meal upon request in their garden sit out. Clean linen and decent shower space too with one big double bed and one single in their family room. Only issue is no lifts in most places so don’t bring heavy bags.
My wife and I recently stayed at orchid rest, nice simple rooms with a private balcony, breakfast was really good every morning, short walk to beach and local restaurants, shower was good with hot water just needed better design, swap the toilet and shower around, she also booked us our transfer to unawatuna.
My husband and I had a lovely stay at Orchid Rest. The host was very friendly and helpful. We had a whale watching excursion early in the morning and the host very kindly waited for us to return and made us breakfast. The bedroom and bathroom were exceptionally clean and was excellent value for money. The location of the property is very close to Mirissa beach and nearby restaurants. Mirissa is a beautiful area and it was a shame we only stayed for one night. We would not hesitate to stay at Orchid Rest again.
