The room was fine and clean. The pool was great to have with the kids and our daughter got on well with the daughter of the hotel. The staff seemed friendly and helpful apart from when I tried to negotiate a better price for a tuk tuk to take us to the Whale watching (go to Raja) as their price was too expensive. The beach is across the road which is handy. Unawatuna is ok as a beach but there is a much better one at Wijaya which is a 100 rupee tuk tuk drive away. Great restaurant there too!
Food is not brilliant at BB. It takes ages and was probably the poorest we had on or trip. Not much choice either.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Many of our guesrs ask us why we chose such an unusual name for a Guest House in Sri Lanka. I read and enjoyed the book as a child ans was struck by the genuine character of Black Beauty. Here was a role model to be followed through life. He was well behaved, honest and thoughtful, always doing the best he could in every situation, wonderful skills we try to instill in our staff. The management chooses new team members with careful consideration and train them to reflect these characteristics. Our aim, over the last 20 years has been to provide the best service for our guests and through gentle and caring ways follow the example of Black Beauty. ... more less
