The place is awesome! They have their own beach with threes. It is quiet and relaxing. Stuff is not so frendly. It was nice, that owner drived us to see turtles for free, but when we left the hotel, he looked at us like he didn't know us and we were there for two nights. This was the only hotel... More

On arrival we were greeted by friendly owners and their pets. The room was clean and the location on the beach was great, very quiet place for rest after many weeks travelling. The owners were very helpful and so lovely! We would recommend that they get simple cotton sheets for the beds and better pillows, the pillows smelt bait musty... More

A perfect place to start our Sri Lanka trip. Hannelore and Pinsiri picked us up from the airport and gave us a warm welcome to the country and their place. It is not a verry luxe place to stay. As Hannelore describes they need to paint the house every year because of The quick decreasing of stuff on The beach... More

Located at a nice deserted part of the long beach starting at Alutgama this place has a nice nearly private beach. Although the place is starting to decline and it looks a bit old this is compensated by the friendly owners and kind staff. The rooms are very spacious and cheap. Basically the owners, the price and the beach make... More

The owners were not home when we were there, but a very nice guy, who didn't speak much English was there for us all the time. We had a magnificent time as the only guests with the beach to ourselves. The room was basic with only a fan, but quite spacious, and that was everything we needed. For the very... More

We stayed here for 4 nights over new year 2014-2015. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were well looked after. The beach runs right up to the guest house and is fairly quiet and clean. There are nice places along the beach to eat and drink however we mostly stayed and enjoyed the food that was provided here. Excellent bang... More

We loved Long beach - right on the beach, helpful owners who tried to post something we left behind! Loved the string with toast for the tree squirrels, Pincho gave us a lift to the turtle hatchery and also to the station. He was helpful and friendly.

If you are looking for a cheap place with access to a long, nearly deserted beach, then Long Beach Cottage is the place. The rooms are basic (fans and cold water) but clean even if the maintenance is lagging a bit. Food is available and the curry and rice we had was very tasty. Breakfast is ok, but not included...

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was very nice. It has a beautiful garden which leads to the beach. A very long beach that is with a lot of high end accommodation, and hotels with pools we simply could not afford. Their peace of beach is probably the prettiest with palm trees giving you shade when the sun... More
