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. Rooms are clean and all en suite and very very reasonably priced. Breakfast is great and you can either have it continental style (i.e. fruit salad, omlette, toast and jam) or - if you ask the owner, you can have proper Sri Lankan breakfast - which is very tasty but should not be enjoyed too early in the day, as it includes curry. I recommend to sleep in and have a late Sri Lankan breakfast at least one morning if you can - it tastes fab.
The only drawback is that the passing trains (although there are not very many of them) can be a bit noisy and the Taj's disco is not far, therefore some music might travel (although only on some nights of the week). Overall, I would definitely recommend it though.
