“A lovely and enjoyable place to stay!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

The gentleman who runs this guesthouse is incredibly kind, helpful and friendly. The rooms were lovely, very clean and spacious with comfortable beds. The breakfast was great, we got loads to eat!! The location is right by Unatwatuna beach and on the right side of Unwatuna to walk to Jungle beach. I couldn't reccomend this place more to anybody as our experience was great and the value was fantastic! 10/10 would go back!

I stayed at Brink house for 9 days. The hosts were genuinely warm and welcoming, my room spotless and beautiful, the location for instance - close to the beach and restaurants, A family of 11 monkeys visited the trees on the property daily, which was a pleasant surprise!. I thoroughly enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing stay, and would not look elsewherein the future.

Stayed for 4 nights with my wife, arriving v. late from Colombo Airport in Taxi (LKR8000). Owners were awake and waiting to check us in to top Suite room (2 balconies, A/C).

Location is perfect, just across from main Unawatuna Beach (but not on-sand).

On arrival, we were treated to a fridge filled with local beers, soft drinks & bottles of water. Free refills on request, which was a nice touch.

Breakfast was very basic, but sufficient (white toast or local pancake-type "hoppers", fruit, jam, coffee/tea).

Room was large & clean, but wasn't serviced each night (e.g beds made, garbage emptied, fresh towels/linens) so if you're after a pampered, hotel-like experience, you might want to try elsewhere. This is a guest-house, where owners were helpful, on-call, but left us alone. Bathroom was large, hot water worked well, a/c & fans modern and efficient.

The highlight, however, was the proximity to amazing wildlife. Brinkhouse sits on the edge of the jungle on a river/swamp (bring your mozzie repellent/DEET!) and we had regular sightings or visits from:

* A troupe of Grey Langur monkeys (12-20) which hung out on our balcony
* Two 4-5ft freshwater mugger crocodiles
* 4ft water monitors

Asking around, A/C rooms at neighbouring resorts were about 30% cheaper, but the size of the room and wildlife made this a very pleasant stay.

Excellent location set back from the road but very close to the beach. Owners are very friendly and chatty and full of good tips. Breakfast every morning was so good and we were surrounded by nature, monkeys, birds including peacocks. Brilliant evening meals cooked by Amma who is a lovely lady. We eat there 8 out of 11 nights because the food was so good and so cheap -nothing was too much trouble and we could request what we wanted. A very relaxing and memorable stay. Rooms clean and very quiet.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have a large balcony but are less private. All rooms are good and clean and quie...

Rooms are pretty oke. Because of peak season we paid 5000. This wasnt good value for money. We had better rooms for lot less.

Owners are friendly and very chatty. They are very flexible with serving breakfast to their guest. They are available for their guests at all times.

The location is very good. Its quiet but close to the beach and road.
