As a young couple we stayed in this guest house for five nights in august. The first room we stayed was down so it was not very good but the next day we were transfered to another room on the terrace which was much more nicer. The rooms are clean. We had to eat there almost every night as there... More

The room I had was absolutely great value for the money. When I arrived, I expected a warmer welcome because of all the reviews I read about the guesthouse but the owner was still very friendly though. And the dinner his daughter cooked was the best dinner I had during my 4 weeks travel in Sri Lanka, I had the... More

This is a brilliant place to stay. It is in a good location such that you cannot miss it on the main road and most tho drivers from valaichchennai will know where to go. When you arrive you can meet the owner who will show you to your room. The rooms are small and decorated according to popular Sri Lankan... More

I am reviewing only the restaurant as we were staying somewhere else. It was recommended to us by my father in law (who is SriLankan) so we went there the previous evening to "book" a lobster. The followng day we went there for dinner and it was simply delicious: also the sides were fantastic, the fried rice in particular. Do... More

So kind familly with EXCELLENT Sri Lanka food. Very good service, rooms are pretty clean. Bicycles are free and you can go to Kalkudah Beach in 5 min. We had a srilanka food making course with the ladies of the kitchen. Best guesthouse we stayed of our trip and not expensive!!! We already miss this beautiful place.

Cheap prices, including food. Very friendly and supportive staff. Nice clean AC room and good food. Quiet surroundings and a nice view from the second floor. Also you can rent stylish old bicycles to go around town. Don't go to the main beach, it's too crowded. Drive a little further and enjoy super nice deserted beaches with only the occasional... More
