This place is overpriced for what you get, which is backpacker style small rooms which smell really damp. We came from Mirissa where we had a luxurious room for $40 to Unawatuna paying $50 for the above. We had booked a twin room and what we got was 1 double bed and a childs bed with metal railing on 3 sides, I am short and still had to curl up so as not to bang into the bars at the end.
On the plus side the service was really good from the young guys working there, always smiling and eager to help. The gardens and pool area was beautifull and we enjoyed sitting out on the balcony but we would look else where if returning.
- 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
