“Lovely little family-run gem”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

This lovely small guest house with a total of 4 rooms is really a good find. Located just behind the popular (and very expensive) Taj Hotel and a railway track, it's less than a 5 min walk to Bentota beach. The owners are really nice and very helpful.

Reviewed 17 December 2013 via mobile

Spotless rooms, lots of hot water, fast wifi speed, really friendly and welcoming hotel owners and a lovely environment! The hotel seems really new and is close to the beach and town. I definitely recommend this place for a calm and enjoyable stay.
