“Didn't like atmosphere but beautiful location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2013 via mobile

The rooms are clean and bright but are a little cramped and have little porches with furniture that look out over the sea. However, at the time of our visit there was extensive building works.

The bungelows are overlooking the beautiful beach which is extremely quite and untouristy - Perfect if you are looking for a super low key relax on the beach. The location is also excellent for travel to Pigeon Island.

The resturant however is
extremely average and slightly over priced. At times we felt an inconvenience to the staff rather than guests. This would not be so much if an issue if there were other places to dine near by, but the area at the moment is still really sparse and sleepy.

For us in February like the end of the world with very nice personel and nice food in volumes,wow! But the rooms are too small and simple equiped if you like to stay more than one night. The hotel is also partly under construction but it did not disturb us much. This could later be a nice place if you are looking for piece and quite......The beach is perfect for long walks together with a dear one.

The hotel is basic but clean and comfortable. The food was good. We did not try western food though. The beach was out of this world (it is the season now though). We went in a group of 20 so I can only say that we as a group had the whole hotel to ourselves which gave us all the necessary privacy and the cuisine was made to our requirements.

We stayed in this guest house in May 2011. We spend two weeks travelling throughout Sri-Lanka. I could say that Nilaveli (Trincomalee) is the best beach place in Sri-Lanka. There are long beaches with white send and calm ocean. Pigeon Island which close to the hotel looks like maldives atol.

The guesthouse is basic, but the rooms are clean and have fan. There were no AC at the time of our visit and it was a little bit hot at night. We were the only guests in the hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They did almost all that we asked)))

The resttraunt and its cheff worth separate compliments. We ate so many various and tasty dishes (crab soup, devil fish and calamari, gambo shrimps).

You could ask the staff to bring you to the local fishermen. There you could buy fresh (huge size) shrimps and fish at very cheap prices (usually we paid about usd 10 for few kilos of shrimps and few fishes).

There is a navy base right near the guesthouse, therefore, there are no beggars (and little of locals) in the beach. We were the only white people on a 1 km beach))))

This place left for me the best memories regarding Shri Lanka. I visited plenty places in Sri-Lanka but would return only here.

We only ate here, so can't comment on the rooms. The restaurant was terrific - devilled sear fish fantastic. Great banana fritters for our daughter. Lovely views out to sea. We were the only guests but made to feel very welcome. Highly recommended.
