2/10 Poor

It is poorly managed and run down place. Pro - Beach is 200m away after crossing open train tracks. Cons - Run down old house - next to the train tracks (last train at midnight and the first at 3am) the whole room will vibrate with noise. - consistent power cuts and they dont have back up power source ( temp was around 32c) - There was no AC remote in the room and was made to pay UDS 10 to get the remote or you can burn in the heat. You could open the wimdow and loose all the privacy and let all the mosquitos in. - Ripped bed sheets, no towels, no toiletries, no water or cups, no blanket or quilt. - cockroach in bathroom and insects on the bed. - no lights around this place at night so ensure you take flash light. - The restaurant shown in picture is actully next door a diffrent business which is highly over prices and had really bad quality food. (In LKR - juice 500, dry ans cheap fish and chips 1800, fried rice with cheap and dry fish 1800, long island tea 1600) - No one ever at reception.. Visited over 25 countries I would say it was very poor experince and not worth it all. You can book proper hotel or home stay in Bentota and come to beach as they are public beach. You wornt be able to see the beach from thre room amyway due to high coconut ans palm trees.

4/10 Fair

Hotel rooms are small & congested. No basic amenities like Tea kettle,tea coffee pouches glass to drink water,bathroom toiletries etc.No AC in silent about AC facilities. No intercom in room.No person available for any service.Reception is far away and most of the time no staff present on seat.Mosquitoes bite big problem in rooms.Most abusive on internet feedback. I stayed three nights with most disappointing experience. Although I paid 70 pounds in advance. Bad situation for Indian tourists.

In general OK but the trains are too loud
We stayed two nights at ocean view. The room was ok, but we saw big cockroach in the bathroom and we were so scared. The train runs every morning from 4 o’clock I think. The train track is right outside the „door“. So it was too noisy, I had to close my kids ears, it’s not just loud but hurting the ears. I won’t recommend people with small kids to stay there. The beach is just 200 meters away.

very basic rooms, no hot water in the shower. Had a cockroach in our room that got in our bags. Also the hotel is right on the train tracks which run every hour on the half hour through the night. My partner got very little sleep.
