We stayed here for a night during our trip to Sri Lanka in October. It is a beach front hotel located in Hikkadua on Galle Road. Our tour operator booked the hotel, so we are NOT aware of the per night rates. We checked in at 7 PM and checked out at 9 AM the next morning.
This is a two storey hotel with 15 to 18 rooms with two beach facing rooms. It also has a swimming pool in the center of the hotel. Most of the rooms are around the pool.
We stayed in one of the beach facing rooms in the first floor. We got an upgrade as the earlier occupants checked out in the evening. The room was spacious with a balcony. The balcony had couple of chairs where you can sit and watch the waves. The AC was decent and the bathroom was clean. It had a very nice ambiance and we enjoyed staying there. For complimentary breakfast we had bread with potato curry and coconut sambol, omelet, orange juice and tea.
