This would have been a good review - nice room, pretty terrace - but the manager (or whoever he was) was DEEPLY unpleasant when we checked out. There's nothing to do around here unless you have a car and definitely the poor relation area of Bentota. I wouldn't recommend the area and certainly not this hotel. We had naively trusted...

Really friendly owner and staff who are super accommodating. Chef makes a fantastic chicken curry 😊. Only 2 mins on a boat to a beautiful beach with a stunning temple or a quick 5 mins tuk-tuk to a lagoon on the beach. Great prices too. Peaceful location on the river with amazing sunsets and also not too far from the...

From the moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly smiles and made to feel comfortable by the owners Corrine and Vera. Our room was modern, clean and featured a lovely four poster...

Although I have previously reviewed Ganga Garden, I feel I must do so again. I attended the New Years Eve Buffet party and can only say it is absolutely marvellous. The choice of well cooked ,beautifully presented and plentiful food excellent. There was a choice of soup to start with and then everything from Lobster, Beef, Pork, German sausage, variety...

We found this lovely hotel by chance as our first choice was fully booked, but this turned out to be a blessing. Originally booked a week but ended up staying a further 5 nights and would have liked to stay longer! Rooms are basic but very clean. Staff are very friendly and honest. Waiters try hard but could do with...

A bit hidden in a backyard, very nice location, directly at the river. We tried the vegetarian curry which was very good. In comparison to many other restaurants in this area, the rice (which accompanies the dish) is included in the price. Good value for money & very friendly service.

Small house with few rooms on the river bank. Warm, friendly and extremly helpful service. Perfect cleanliness. Outstandig Sri Lankan dinner. One of the best accommodations in Sri Lanka, that we visited during our Sri Lanka roundtrip. Absolutely recommendable!
