I stayed in this guest house 1 night and really never again.
The position is very bad (about 2 km from the center of Bentota and without the direct entrance to the beach. You must go to the main street and reach the beach from another hotel.
I booked the "economy double room" 6 months in advance in order to be sure that during the Christmas there will be a room available for me.
We arrived in the check in time and the owner told us that all rooms are full and we have to sleep 1 night in some "other room". For me it was OK until I saw the room. It was a LOFT 2 x 2 m with a small window, without attached bathroom and very smelly. Really terrible.
The bathroom, we could use, was in the garden like a public bathroom for all guests, there was no possibility to lock the door, so during I was having shower, I had a "nice" visit of some guy..
The toillet was even worse, there was only a hole in the ground without flushing without water!!!!!
I didn't want to accept this solution, but the owner and especially his daughter (really arrogant person) told me: "if you don't want this "super" room, you can go and we all can waste our time"...
We were very tired after the long travel with the public buses and we said, ok, but we stayed only 1 night instead of 2 nights.
After the terible night in the smelly loft we received the "wonderfull" breakfast, on the plate there was 2 pieces of old scrambled eggs, perharps the rest from another person, in the cup of coffee there were many ants and the marmelade and butter were old and rank. Perharp it was like a "fine" that I wasn't happy with my room...
I was in Sri Lanka 14 weeks, tried many guest houses in the whole country and this Bihin Villa was really the worst experience I had... Please avoid the stay there!
