A WORD OF WARNING! If you are planning or are about to stay here, make sure you take your money and valuables out with you. There are only Yale locks on the doors and as a result of that £100 went missing from my room when we spent the day on the beach. At night things are fine, because there...

Right on the beach, hot water, clean and £15 a night... can't go wrong. On the main tourist strip with all the chilled out nightlife. "B&B" but no breakfast.. didn't matter though as plenty of restaurants serving great breakfasts nearby.

The small B&B is located in a green garden just across the street from the beginning of the beautiful beach of Tangalle with several restaurants nearby (and still close to the city and bus stop). You could even hear the waves from the room. Rooms were clean (but a bit dark) and had hot water. We had booked the room...

Things we loved in the place were the lovely breakfast served with typical Sri Lankan friendliness by Concy and her sister and the sound of waves when you sleep in the room which gave a feeling that you are sleeping on the beach. Great location if you love the beach.

Good clean rooms and very friendly service. Concy's breakfast was fantastic and her smile, just divine. Both Panzer and Daisy gave a warm greeting as well ( the dogs).Any closer to the beach and you would be on it. Going to sleep to the sound of the surf was magic.

This was a beach facing basic room with AC that was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was out of this world with local fresh fruits, and traditional Sri Lankan food prepared lovingly by Verena and Concy. You can also learn to cook Sri Lankan dishes. This is an excellent base for exploring, enjoying the beach or taking a safari or...
