How can $30 a night with breakfast be overpriced? I don't understand how anyone could say that! Our room has a double bed and a single bed, fan, hot water, great verander with a table, really comfy chairs and a hammock. The breakfast is Massive...a Sri lankan omelette, fruit plate, big pot of coffee and a mountain of toast which was a freshly baked loaf!
It's run by a German woman and her Sri lankan hubby. They have a lovely confident little daughter called Anna who will come and talk to you about her adventures. They have two gorgeous big friendly dogs.....but the credit goes to the three boys who work so so hard here. They are constantly cleaning, tidying, cooking and making sure everything is in order. After the tragedy that they all endured with regards to the tsunami, after hearing their agonizing personal stories they are still so happy and smile constantly.
Message to the owners...look after these boys they are an asset to your business.
The pool is very nice, with naturally warm water, the beach is a bit of a pain to get to... You must get on the main road which is a little scary when you have busses whizzing round blind corners at full speed, over taking other traffic whilst you are walking on a bit of pavement that is half a foot wide! It is like previous reviewers have said...a 15 odd min walk but that being said we would def stay here again. You can tak a tuk tuk for 150 rupees which is about a dollar and you avoid the nighttime boom booms because you are slightly further out.
Highly reccomend this place, so cheap, so peaceful right next to pearl dive centre, restaurants and shops...stay here people!....happy holidaying! Xxxx kate and Darren ( London)
- 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
