“Amazing Value Amazing place”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

The rooms are huge, each has its own terrace or balcony and in a great location - only a few minutes walk from the beach but in a quiet corner.
What more could you want?
Oh ok there is also: hot water, free wifi, friendly family and mangoes for breakfast.
And all for a fantastic price (less than 10GBP!!)
Highly recommend we will be going back :-)

We stayed at Palitha´s GH for 6 nights and we cannot recommend this family run guest house highly enough: newly built, spacious, extremely clean rooms, great location, nice breakfasts served in the garden, friendly family atmosphere thanks to Palitha and his wife Suranganee. They were both very kind and helpfull with anything we asked for. One of the places we would happily return to!

... if you are looking for somewhere to feel at home, comfortable, welcome then this is it. Palitha and his family make this guesthouse somewhere very special, accommodating your stay to your needs. Myself and my friends stayed with Palitha every time we visited Unawatuna. The rooms are very large, extremely clean, with wonderful balcony's that you can relax on. And if you are worried about your finances, this is the best value for money we found in the whole of Sri Lanka. If you are looking for an overpriced guesthouse right on the beach then this isn't it. Near the main road, it has easy access to Galle, with a short 5min walk to the beach you get to browse all the lovely restaurants and shops along the way. Wonderful.

Room Tip: All rooms very similar, although Palitha spoke about putting a kitchenette in one. You can request a...

We stayed with Palitha and his family twice; once in his self catering accommodation and then again in the new guesthouse rooms. The guesthouse is very close to the main road (handy for buses and tuk tuks) but also very close to the beach (about a 5 minute walk). The rooms are large, spacious and spotlessly clean and Palitha serves a lovely breakfast in the morning usually consisting of fresh mangoes picked from his own trees!
Palitha and his family are wonderfully warm and friendly and made us feel very much at home. They were extremely kind and generous to us and we wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else in Unawatuna now!

We were recomended this guesthouse by other travellers and it was absolutely TOP! New guesthouse opened in March 2012. Spacious and spotless rooms, nice bathroom and amazing breakfast! Family who run this guesthouse is very nice and friendly. Just 5 minutes from the beach. Veronika and Marcel, Czech Republic, verunci@post.cz
