The whole place is a clean as a whistle. Its almost as if it was repainted last week. (This is V rare at this price point in SL )
Kumara was a chef in Japan for 15 years and his standard of cooking, cleanliness and attitude toward his guests is clearly what is expected in that exacting country.
I would stay here again absolutely. 2 thumbs up!

Room Tip: Riverside best

From the moment we checked in to the moment we left, we had an amazing time here. The owner Mr Kumara and his staff were so welcoming and friendly. The location is slightly away from the main resorts (around 15 minutes walk), which means it is lovely and quiet, but still easy enough to reach the main sights. Our rooms had a balcony that looked out onto the gardens and the river. Both rooms were spacious and had large bathrooms, and were very clean. We also had a fridge in each room, which we weren't expecting and was a real bonus. Breakfasts could be taken either in their dining room or outside in the garden by the river and we had substantial portions of fresh fruits, juices, eggs and toast.
Given the extremely reasonable room rate, we were pleasantly surprised at the hospitality and service we received and would definitely recommend this place as a cheaper alternative to the larger resorts.

A delightful place. Delicious food served at a table right next to the river was a highlight of our holiday. Quality accommodation with high standards of service. It was lovely to relax in the garden and watch the riverside life, and wandering around the local village was fascinating. A perfect place to relax.

Room Tip: The downstairs room was excellent. Ask for a river view.

This is a lovely property right on the river. We stayed 3 nights and our room was large and immaculately clean, serviced everyday (a real treat) with a great ensuite bathroom. The fridge and television were great bonuses that we really enjoyed and hadn't really expected given the reasonable room rate. Kumara is a wonderful host, lots of help and advice without pressure. He and his wife provide wonderful home cooked Sri Lankan meals on request and the young man they have working with them is lovely. It's an easy walk to the beach so you can enjoy the mix of both river and beach locations. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: We had a room over looking the river which we would recommend

Totally recommended. Perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing holidays in the beach. Even though it is a few meters from the beach, it is located in the beautiful riverside of the Bentota River. The hotel is a family business so the customer service is personalized. His owner, Mr. Kumara will delight you with is amazing stories about his life in Japan. If you want to learn and know more about the Sri Lanka life, for sure this is your best option.

Room Tip: We stay in the only room of the first floor
