8.0 Excellent
Pros: That staff were super friendly and helpful. They answered all my questions and gave me useful travel advice. The room and bathroom were very clean.
Cons: There was a bit of an ant problem. I saw them by the door outside my room. When I shared with the staff, she said it's OK because it's only outside. I saw some inside the room later on but wasn't too bothered by it. When I went home and unpacked, I pulled out a pair of shorts only to see around 50 ants inside that travelled with me all the way from Sri Lanka. It's unfortunate because everything else about my stay was very pleasant and the ants definitely affected my comfort and experience. I hope they can fix it soon!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Although the location does not seem ideal, a 10 min walk from the beach, we thought it actually was. The hotels near the beach are next to a busy road, while Tinara River Inn is situated next to the river, outside the bustle of the road and the center. It was the perfect place to unwind completely. Our room was spacious, the bathroom clean and pleasant, the breakfast delicious - also in terms of quantity, perfect for us after our daily start in the waves on a surfboard. The warm, good care of our hostess Babi has undoubtedly made our stay much better than it already was. Whether we were looking for the address of a snorkeling school, or wanted to figure out how we could get to the airport in the smartest way, Babi looked it up for us. In the end we stayed one night longer (5 instead of 4), because this was the perfect end of our 3 week trip through Sri Lanka.
Cons: In fact, there are hardly any negatives. However, the amount of mosquitoes may be somewhat larger due to the river. So spray well with DEET or another insect spray.

Pros: This property was exactly what we needed after a long journey from Kandy. The room was exceptionally clean and so was the bathroom, and the beds have super comfy mattresses! We had a great 2 nights sleep here. The owner tried to make sure everything is just perfect here for your stay from making sure you’re well fed at breakfast (which is delicious) to ensuring we knew where a cheap laundry was, to dinner tips to transfer tips. This was definitely one of the most comfortable rooms we stayed in our whole time in Sri Lanka!

Pros: Sanju is such a great host! We stayed at his place for 3 nights and he went out of his way to make us feel like to at home. He recommended one of his friends for the surfing lessons, which was great and also provided us with some alo vera from his garden when we got sunburned. The place is very clean and the breakfast was great.

He always thinks of what I need. My room is perfect!! The room is spacious, big bed is clean and comfy, many kinds of furnitures are useful, shower room is big and clean. And I can always use hot water whenever I want... There is a beautiful garden and nearby flows a river. There are also a lot of trees including mango tree, so I can eat fresh mango every morning. It takes for just 5 minutes by walk to the beach, markets or restaurants. Pelli Riverine is a real dream house!!
Cons: Nothing!!

The room was clean and nice. The hotel is just a five minutes walk from the beach and not on the main street so its very calm and silent.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The lovely staff went over and above for us here. The view is stunning and the loungers mean you can rest and relax all morning. There is quick and easy beach access, with the best beach about 20mins walk down the road. The food here is great and the family are super accommodating - they let our friends join us for dinner one night, and for BYO drinks another. This place is away from Weligama’s main beach, but we found this location much better. You can still walk to the cafes and main beach in about 30mins. We had our laundry done for a cheap price, and many nice extras like offers for massage and snorkeling tours. It’s about 15mins walk from the 5star Paddy Dive shop too. Oh and the monkeys are so fun!
Cons: Nothing it was perfect for this price point.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: I have travelled along the coast from Mirissa to Galle. And there was no place that I would have liked more than Villa Dinsara. I recomment this place because: - it is perfectly situated for those who want to be far from street noise. Villa has beautiful bay view with calming whisper of waves. It is high on the hill, so tsunami won't get you)) - there is good place for swimming - Jungle Beach - in 10 min walk - the hosts offer tasty homemade lankan food for reasonable price - you can rent scotty at the villa - hosts are really nice family, friendly and helpful
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful ocean view. Quiet and quiet place without tourist crowds. Dear staff and helpful owner. Clean rooms.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The property is on a beautiful cliff overlooking a small beach and is in a quiet part of the city, though it is still very easy to get in to town. The family is so so helpful and kind - they helped arrange a motorbike rental, dinners, and a ride to the airport. The breakfasts were plentiful, and there is lots of space to relax outside. My husband and I really enjoyed our time here, and Weligama is such a fun place!
Cons: The WiFi would go in and out.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excelent location if you drive motorbike. Nice view, quiet place, if not Friday night. Clean rooms, comfortable bed mattress. Very friendly family, great food, possible cooking lessons, snorkeling, good pre-booking massage. Thank you very much for a great vacation ;)
Cons: All good
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This place is incredible. From the get go the host family make you feel so welcome as everyone gets their own little welcome party and refreshments on arrival. The view overlooking the bay and ocean is outstanding...I could sit here all day watching that view! Anything you need is not a trouble - directions, tuk tuk, and local knowledge. I highly recommend.
Cons: Nothing
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Location on the top of the cliff is very unique. You basicaly live at the terrace garden, couple of meters from a fantastic view across a bay towards Mirissa. There are a lot of beds and resting nets, so everything is very comfortable. If you take a three beds room, you'll get this view directly from the bed! The place has very cool atmosphere and since it is also cheap I can imagine to stay there for couple of days.
Cons: The rooms are very warm. There is no AC, only a ventilator. Very thin walls and opened windows (which need to be opened because of the temperature) also mean that you miss a bit of privacy. If you want to go to a beach, you need to walk approx. 5 minutes. I recommend asking for a scooter and travel to nearby beautiful beaches instead.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing view, beautiful family and great location! The best view to wake up to, great food and away from party scene.
Cons: The only thing that would make it better would be aircon in every room! It really was the greatest place and I highly recommend.

Cons: nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Holiday Inn was the best place we stayed in our 3 weeks in Sri Lanka. Simple open plan foyer with wonderful air conditioned rooms (we tried 2 different rooms) with fans also, and mosquito nets that go fully around the 4 poster bed. Spacious shower wet rooms too. A nice outdoor space with hammocks, but walled and private. The holiday Inn is at the end of a lane away from the busier road but still incredibly close to the beach and shops. But most importantly of all, Hansi and Uditha were the most friendly, welcoming and helpful hosts we could've hoped for. Within the 3 nights we stayed there we felt like part of the family and I wouldn't be exaggerating to say we miss them!

Pros: Everything! The owners are sweet, genuine, caring people. The rooms are clean & comfortable. The deluxe room is massive & totally worth it! It is peaceful & away from main road. Surf breaks are less than 5 mins walk away. Food here is great but lots of other options nearby too. Aircon almost too cold! Really happy we stayed here - thanks Uditha & Hansi!
Cons: Nothing!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything ! The host is very nice, location very quiet in the middle of jungle with 5 min walk to the main beach ! Breakfast and smile ! Will definitely come back !
10.0 Excellent
Pros: What a magnificent location, just back from the beach, surrounded by avocado trees, coconut palms, breadfruit trees and mango trees, this is a paradise. The staff here were beautiful. They were attentive and so happy to help with anything we needed. They went out and brought us fresh fruit from the trees on some days which was a lovely touch. You are only 290M back from the beach here which is a couple of minute walk, and it’s a blessing in disguise. You actually wouldn’t want to be on the beach as the Sri Lankan train runs by every 30mins and the local traffic, cars, buses and scooters are very loud beeping etc all though the night. At the Holiday In Midigama, the palm tree grove and fruit trees that surround the compound zero out and bounce all that sounds away so you have a lovely quite place to chill and rest in the evening. Thank you again guys, we really appreciate the lovely place you have and your kindness was well received :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I ended up staying for almost a week at the property. The family are so friendly and really look after you. The location is perfect, quiet and peaceful. The food they cooked me was delicious. I will return when I visit Sri Lanka next!
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Really homely feel - the hosts are lovely and always at hand. Hansi (main host) spoke excellent English and helped us with anything we needed. My daughter grew very fond of Hansi as she spared lots of time to play with her (still asking to see her now back in the UK!) Homestay situated in perfect secluded jungle spot only couple of minutes walk from lazy left and lazy rights surf spots. Thanks so much for making our stay in Sri Lanka so enjoyable.
Cons: Bed sheets were a little small - beds would be more comfortable for wrigglers if sheets were a little larger.

Cons: Wifi was a little slow.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The villa is a hidden gem at 10 minutes drive from hustle and bustle Mirisa. The villa and the surrounding has lots of Balinese influences. There is a well kept garden with beautiful and colorful flowers. The swimming pool is well kept and is very refreshing in a hot summer day. The view from the room towards the river is so peaceful and relaxing. This place is so charm full and zen and perfect for relaxaxion. The room is very big and clean, so is the bathroom but the best of it is that you won't need AC due to the position of the house. The room was always cool when we walked in. The staff was very kind and helpful. The breakfast we had on the terrace was great. This was by far our best stay in Sri Lanka. We highly recommend and encourage you to stay at Villa The Leaf.
Cons: Everything was perfect!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Best place! Highly recommended! Had a huge room in second floor. Very clean. Strong air-condition, beautiful shower and best water pressure. Huge terrace overlooking the river which right beneath. No mosquitoes as the water are moving steadily and quietly. On the terrace - a large refrigerator and actually a whole kitchen. Very comfortable. Place is close to the beach also: just walk across the street through an alley and you are on the beautiful beach. Walk along and you can use the facilities (surfing lessons and sun beds). Had a great time! Family that runs the place is VERY friendly. We could not carry the luggage to second floor and they immediately helped with a smile. We had one breakfast which was very good. Location is great - apart from the beach, you can take took-took or even walk to center with restaurants. Highly recommended! We will gladly come back!
Cons: Nothing!! was just perfect!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: New, very clean and well equipped rooms with lovely hosts who read every wish from your lips. We enjoyed the stay a lot and it was great to be able to rent a scooter to go around. It’s a little hidden off the main road but don’t hesitate to come! The garden is located beautifully besides a river and in the late afternoon you can hear the Buddhist monks sing on the other side - we enjoyed our stay!
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Lovely staff, very attentive to our two year old son and arranged tuktuks and scooter for us. Big room, nice shower, beautiful view from terrace and well maintained garden and pool area. Pool was superclean so we enjoyed a daily swim with our little one. Very close to train track which was great entertainment to see the trains pass by! Very quiet at night as off the mainroad. Fridge to use in communual area upstairs.
Cons: Room light is bright white LED. I would have liked a bit more ambiance or dim options at night (outside lights were good). Our airco made a ‘tick’ sounds every once in a while which woke us up. Even with airco we had a few mosquito’s, so maybe a mosquito net would be a good addition? The do provide anti-mosquito spray. Breakfast rate a little on the high side in my view.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: This was the last place we stayed on our trip to Sri Lanka. The location was great, half way between weligama and Mirissa and it backs on to the river. We ended up spending most of our time on mirissa beach as it was so beautiful. The staff were lovely and the hotel was idyllic, would highly recommend!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: From other reviews this was a little gem, we agree. Great location between Weligama & Mirrissa beach only a short LKR300 Tuktuk trip, away from the noise & close enough to visit both. Very spacious rooms, spotless, nice breakfast and wonderful hosts.

Pros: This hotel is just LUSH, rooms and beds are the best in Sri Lanka if you ask me. Best Mattress ever!

Cons: There were quite a few crows in the outdoor spaces - not anywhere else we encountered so many not sure what they were attracted to but they seem to flock to the Marriott.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Outstanding throughout. The hospitality of the staff was superb, truly could not be any better. They helped us so much with everything, including helping us to find a dentist when my boyfriend broke his tooth surfing. Truly impressive service from very kind, professional people, we felt so welcome. The hotel is beautifully designed, the sea view from the room was stunning and the room itself was luxurious. Highly recommend the spa; we had a couple’s massage and it was perfect. We had both breakfast and dinner here. As a rule, I wouldn’t normally eat every meal in a hotel but the range and quality of food available in both buffets was better than I could ever have imagined. I had the opportunity to sample so many local dishes, although there are so many different types of cuisine available that everybody is catered for. Outstanding quality throughout, cannot fault this place.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We would like to thank Chintaka and his family for their kind and friendly attitude. They made our stay like staying home. Our room was nice, cozy and clean, with specific device against mosquitoes. We always have cups for tea, plates and cutlery to eat some tropic fruits. The hotel is close to the beach, cafes, supermarket, everything is in walking distance. Also It’s possible to rent the bike right in the hotel, what can make your trip more full and exciting. The breakfast there is fantastic, so heavy and delicious, every day they gave us something new to try, we always had European food and local Sri-Lankan food, so you always have a choice. It was so sad to leave such an amazing country and so hospitable and kindhearted people. Thanks a lot for this three weeks.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: After 10 weeks of travelling this was our favourite host! We couldn’t have asked for a nicer family who took so much time to talk to us and make sure we were having a good time and had everything we needed. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The breakfasts are HUGE and so so tasty. The room itself is really lovely - huge comfy bed, hot shower, good wifi and really clean! We couldn’t have asked for any more and would recommend this to anyone visiting Weligama!!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The highlight of our stay was certainly the exceptional personal attention provided by the owner of the property, Mr. Chinthaka Deshapriya. Right from the time we checked-in till we departed, Chinthaka took personal care of us. Be it recommending nearby places for dinner or arranging a whale watching session, Chinthaka provided very honest and professional advices. The complementary breakfast was a sumptuous spread of local food and extra portions were promptly provided. Though the property does not host a restaurant, the nearby beach area has many great sea-food joints. On a particular day, we requested for lunch Chinthaka took me to a nearby place in the town in his own car and made sure we got what we wanted. Chintaka is very forthright in committing what we can provide and ensures he does full justice to those. The property is located close to a fabulous beach and quite near to Mirissa ( a much more happening but highly touristy area); the city of Galle is also just a 30-45 minutes drive. Overall, we felt like we are staying with an old friend - the warm, personal but non-intrusive way Chinthaka and his wife treated us made this short stay one of the best we have had in Sri Lanka.
Cons: This is a very well maintained budget accommodation and one should not expect any luxury aspects. What the property could well is to provide a reception area for guests checking in, especially those arriving a little ahead of their scheduled check in time.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable rooms with all amenities and great breakfast. Wonderful hosts and their family, very helpful, also with transportation from CMB. Great value for money. Home away from home kind of place with great vibes. Lucky we have found this gem.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything: breakfast, very nice and helpful host (and the rest of the family) with good recommendations, spacious comfortable and clean room. At the beach within one minute.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Super hosts, spotless room, very comfortable bed and great location. Stayed 3 nights with my boyfriend and the host arranged a scooter for us at local price and made us a packed breakfast on our last day as we left the place at 5.50am to get the train. 100% recommended! To manage expectations, it is not a standard to have hot water in all places in Sri Lanka. Chinthaka, the host, is working on providing hot water to the rooms asap but to be honest, it wasn’t a downer for us as it is so hot that a refreshing shower is perfect. If needed, the host can provide mosquito nets.
Cons: Everything was perfect.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The owner is super nice and friendly. We had the biggest breakfast, super delicious. Place is relatively new and clean. You are really close to the beach, short walking to surfing places and all good restaurants. I think this is biggest advantage of this place.
Cons: Parking is limited, so if you are going with your own car, be sure to check it. We were lucky, but there is only one place for car - thinking in SL it's ok. There is no hot water, but after really sunny and hot day there was no such problem. Also we get the room with AC, but to get remote control, there was extra charge - this politics seems little bit weird.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I would highly recommend this place! Lovely clean, comfotable modern rooms, including a very big tasty breakfast. The rooms also have tea making facilities. It is a 5 minute walk from a great surfing spot on the beach. Lots of restaurants near by too. The owner was so friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. He even noticed mosquitos were bothering us and put a mosquito net on our bed whilst we were out. Thank you so much for an amazing stay Temple Tree!

Pros: Well, here we are, the end of our holidays. We have found a friendly, kind and lovely person here at temple tree. On the arrival day there was a little problem with our booking, but we got a solution straight away. We really liked the place, (firstly we booked just for 3 nights) and than we decided to stay for all our journey in Sri Lanka . The breakfast is more than every expectation, rooms are clean and very spacious, the location is next to the beach, just in the end of a quite street. The owner helped us to rent a scooter, in various tour around Weligama and he organized taxis from the airport. So full service for a really reasonable price. I can recommend for everyone. We had a beautiful holiday. We want just to say a big tank you!!! :-)

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved this property. The room was very spacious and comfortable with a great shared living space and balcony. we booked a room with a shared bathroom and the bathroom was always clean which was very much appreciated - hospitality here is amazing. The location is GREAT. Between weligama and midigama you have access to great beaches and restaurants while been in a really quiet pocket near jungle beach. We spent 2 months on the coast and this was the best location and value for money. I could visit all my favourite restaurants and beaches easily with a bus stop just outside and then come back to Kavirose and just chill out. 100% would recommend this homestay.
Cons: Nothing.

Pros: Recently I went to Weligama for a business meeting. So I had to stay one night in Weligama. I checked in to the Kavirose Holiday House by 9 P.M with full of tiredness. They offered me a cold fruit juice & I didn't expect it from them for that money. So, I highly appreciate their service & hospitality & It's beyond the expectations. Really good value for the money $$

9.3 Excellent
Pros: We highly enjoyed this really authentic Sri Lankan stay as we felt very welcome as guests of the family! It really felt as a homestay as we lived in a room of the family's house, which was a great experience! The Sri Lankan breakfast was very good and the location is a 3min walk from the beach and surfboards (great beach for beginners) can be hired a few metres in western direction.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The location is amazing, only a minute from the beach. The hosts were so lovely, making us feel really welcome and at home. We had breakfast there twice and dinner once, and both meals were great - especially big fans of the breakfast! Lovely to eat in their beautiful garden - even saw a mongoose during breakfast our last day! Would highly reccommend staying here.
Cons: Water pressure was a bit low in our bathroom
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The price was extremely good for the services offered. Breakfast is available upon request. Staffs are super friendly.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We could have wished for nothing better than to stay with Dinu and her parents. They are such a friendly, communicative and open-minded family. If you are looking for a genuine Sri Lankan cultural experience, this is your home away from home. The place is set only a five minute beach walk from the main shops, the surfspots and the Hangtime Hostel, but is beautifully located in an authentic Sri Lankan neighborhood. The room was clean and the house is only a two minute walk from the beach. Dinu‘s breakfast and dinner was the best food we’ve had in Sri Lanka. The heartiness and hospitality of this family can’t be compared. We would go back any time and miss them already!
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Really cute area, close to Marriot and main city, you can just walk to beach or restaurants. The family hosting the place are incredible, they were really nice to us and helpful with everything we needed. There is a nice common area/garden where you can enjoy breakfast or dinner. Bathroom is quite big, same as room and they provide mosquito net for each bed.

They have a really good and nice surfing instructor, so our family learned to surf quickly! Highly recommended!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Very cool place. Strong on the surfing theme with chilled atmosphere to match. Visited with family and had the large, split level family room. Aircon seemed to struggle to cope and this room didn't have any views out of the windows, but it was comfortable and clean. Nice areas to sit and chill, my wife and daughters took advantage of the on site yoga, the pool was lovely and the food equally delicious. The crowning glory is of course the beach location which is on the doorstep and absolutely stunning. Friendly staff, keen to chat and help. Great place.
Cons: Possibly slightly on the expensive side compared to some.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Learn how to surf with the good surf instructor Lucky

Pros: The information about the accommodation and surroundings that was provided at check in and throughout the stay was very helpful. The Lions Rest offered a huge range of activities as additional options for the stay ie: massages, yoga, surfing and surf lessons etc. The staff here were also very helpful and genuine in wanting the best from your stay at this accomodation. The Sri Lankan food at the restaurant was excellent.
Cons: Depending on what the purpose of your stay is, the Lions Rest is somewhat secluded from the party scene of Weligama, however this can be accessed by a quick tuk tuk ride down the road.
7.5 Good
Pros: Quiet location near a beach, watch out for turtles in the evening. The village green is between the house and the sea, lots of little cows and dogs and cats running around but all are friendly. Just watch out for poop! :) The food - especially the evening meals - was unexpectedly delicious, all freshly prepared and excellent value. Good WiFi. Very effective air conditioning! Super friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Nothing much to not like, although I felt it was a tiny bit more expensive than similar places in Sri Lanka. Still very cheap by British standards! Toast was not the best a little bit dry... I’m English I have high toast standards. :)
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Its Wonderfull to stay at this place, the staff is really helpful. We got good recommendations for diving. We planned only one night, this became 2 as we heard about the fish night. Amazing and worth to stay. Recommended place to stay

10.0 Excellent
Pros: At the beginning, I just booked one night here but then I felt like I would like to stay here longer. So I stayed 10 nights here haha amazing!!!! This place makes me feel fair comfortable and peaceful. Sometimes it feels like home with friendly neighbors who smile to me all the time. One more thing, they provide the kitchen so you can totally enjoy cooking. Besides, the owner is an awesome person I met in Sri Lanka. Don’t miss the chance to hangout with him hahaha. Also, this place is a bit out of the city but it’s about 20 mins walking distance to the city and just 2 mins to beach area. Anyway, good vibe, nice travel buddy, amazing owner, peaceful energy and so on. Thank you so much!!! I will back to this place again when the opportunity arrives!!!!

Pros: The people here are awesome! They are fun, kind people who give this hostel a welcoming vibe that makes you want to stay forever. Wifi is available in all areas. Towels available if needed. Access to kitchen facilities 24/7. Plants, hammock and speakers + aux in communal areas maintain a chilled, social vibe that makes this the best place to hang out any time of the day/night. Opportunities such as beach clean-ups/yoga/nights out are made available to anyone who stays here so you are never bored! Plus it is situated right on the beach - 2 minute's stroll from the surf.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: My wife and I spent our first few days of our honeymoon here. The hotel is tucked away behind railroad tracks which is patrolled by a national guard. This only added to the charm of the place. The front of house (Tim in particular), bar and cleaning staff couldn’t do more to make us feel welcome. The building itself is beautiful and it’s only a short jaunt away from the beach where there are plenty of options to rent surf equiptment. If you like your coffee, there’s a fantastic place next to the hotel called the Good Coffee Shop. Can’t recommend We Escape highly enough. We miss it already
Cons: Very hard to fault this place
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Location is very good, nice people, good service
Cons: not so happy with an internet connection, best to have your own sim card

Pros: It was actually an escape, we loved all of it. Staff was wonderful, great food and great location. Everything was great . Staff was willing to accommodate and do anything. Great garden, they have their own garden where they grow fruits, herbs and flowers. Very clean place. Food was excellent, thank you chefs, Chamila, Manoj and all the staff for making it a pleasant stay. Great breakfast, you should not miss it. We will be back again. Well, we were 5 girls , but it is a great place for couples or for anyone. Beach is just across the road, 2.minutes away if you like to surf
7.0 Good
Pros: Room and bathroom plus food and pool was very good.
Cons: The WiFi basically didn’t work and the room was very close to the office and we were disturbed a lot. Don’t have room 401
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Lovely spacious room with fantastic bathroom. You would have enough room for a whole family. The hotel has a magical feeling to it when you walk/drive up to it across the train tracks along a private driveway with palm trees on either side. The walk to the beach is less than 5minutes if you go through the private land We Escape own opposite the hotel (get the staff to point this out to avoid a long hot walk to the beach). The hotel is right next to some nice cafes for coffee and good food, albeit pricey and westernised. We had the pool to ourselves at the hotel, with long opening hours and bar staff on duty around the corner so it feels private but can still drink your fresh juice poolside.
Cons: Welcoming room feels dingy and is the least glamorous part of the hotel. Being very picky, this was the only hotel to offer welcoming drinks out of a carton instead of fresh juice during our 24 day stay in Sri Lanka.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice building, we had comfortable two-bedroom apartment, swimming pool and restaurant area is nice & Sri Lankan curry was very nice, not directly on the seaside but quite easy beach access (5 min. walk), staff nice and helpful
Cons: our room was very dark, it was located on the attic and basically didn't have any windows. everything else was great!
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The building and the environment it was super nice, unfortunately the staff has been very rude in many occasions.
Cons: The roof was leaking in 2 spots. We reported it many times but they’ve done anything to solve it. We were in the Deluxe room n. 402
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The stay was very comfortable and affordable! Will be back for sure!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Very attentive and friendly staff. Gorgeous building. Really good value for money.
Cons: The wifi can be improved.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The property itself is stunning - old colonial building at the end of a flame-lantern lined driveway (very dramatic on approach). Swimming pool is stunning and very well maintained. The staff are warm and friendly - nothing is enough trouble. We were not happy with the room initially and they responded positively by moving us to a room (which was incredible, probably worthy of a honeymoon!) with outdoor yard (we have young kids so this is a must for the evenings). They are great with kids - ours are 2 and 5 and they were treated like royalty! Bathrooms are massive, ours had 2 showers. Air con is powerful, although sometimes intermittent at night. Next door to a great coffee shop - does great cakes and bagels too. Location - adjacent to the beach and a few minutes walk to some great cafes/restaurants. All in all I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Cons: Although this place bills itself as a hotel/hostel, its a boutique hotel and should focus more on this, instead of trying to attract a younger "surfier" crowd. For example, it should lose the #hashtagged surfboards and purple branding at the bar and replace with more colonial / antique style furniture, more in-keeping with its surroundings. The bar / restaurant could do with some love - instead of a menu designed to suit everyone it should specialize in doing one thing well - eg. Get a pizza oven and make great pizzas like the Doctors House in Mirissa. Or high-end Sri-Lankan food, cooked in Tandoor. Or a few good cocktails instead of just beer / wine. Or proper barista coffee / home made cake. A few simple touches and I think this could be one of the best hotels in Sri Lanka! Some rooms have barely any natural light - not sure if there is much they can do about this though. Invest in a cot for families staying with younger children.

Pros: The staff and owner, go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable, they are very nice and knowledgeable of the area. Highly recommended, a delightful stay.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: My parents and I had a wonderful stay at Horizon Inn. The rooms were large and comfortable, the location extra quiet, and it was only a few minutes' walk from a beautiful little beach. Weligama (and Horizon Inn) is ideal for those travelers who seek to relax and recharge, to go to sleep at nine and wake up with the sun. It's not a "party" location, which suited us perfectly. We had a delicious, varied breakfast every day, and opted to have dinner every night as well, which was prepared with lots of love and the freshest ingredients. Above all, it was our host, Seya, who made our trip to Sri Lanka memorable. Her care for her guests and community shines through in everything she does, and we will definitely remember her smile and her generosity.
Cons: Nothing! It was a dream from start to finish.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Clean rooms close to a little surf beach. Good air conditioning and hot showers. Seya the owner is friendly and chatty with lots of top tips. There are hangers outside to dry wet clothes & swimming stuff. There seems to always be someone around watching the property so it seems quite secure.
Cons: The door to our room locked, but could still be pushed open. The bed sheet was a very pretty double on a king size bed, but wasn't really big enough. Our room smelt a bit damp, but the next door room where our kids stayed didn't. We thought we'd have a walk out in the evening but found it hard to find somewhere to eat. Having walked around the following morning, there were a few small places close by. It's too far & dangerous to walk to Weligama at night, but the property have a tuk tuck man available to use.

Pros: The hotel itself is amazing! Offers daily cleaning, and amazing food. Hotel staff was the most helpful and friendly we’ve met. The hotel is situated close to a super cozy little beach with a small bar which also serves delicous food.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Best place to stay in Weligama! Seya and her husband (Priyantha) are wonderful hosts. Very warm-hearted and caring without beeing pushy at all. The employee Daminde (hopefully this is the correct spelling) is the best and most careful TukTuk driver you‘ll find around! He has also a very good sense of humor.. Accomodation: The rooms are very clean and were cleaned every day during our stay. The bed is very comfy. A/C rooms and a good working hot water shower. You‘ll appreciate this after a long day at the beach! On our arrival we had two bottles of water and two cans of beer in our fridge. That was a pleasant surprise.. :-) Food: We (sadly) only had breakfast. That was quiet delicious! We got english breakfast with fried eggs and saussages, typical singhali breakfast (but not as spicy) and I‘m sure you‘ll get much more but for us it was just fine. You can have a good cup of coffee, espresso, fresh made fruit juice and I‘m pretty sure that there‘s much more too. Seya also offers to cook on demand. Unfortunately we never got to it because we lazily ate at the beach. Judging from the breakfast we had.. this was a mistake! For your stay: If you need anything just ask Seya! She‘ll make everything possible! Litteraly.. We had a WhatsApp Chat with Seya, so we could even arrange things with her while lying on the beach. ;-) Extras: - TukTuk driver on premise! No need to pay every time you get a lift. There will be a bill at the end of your stay. Daminde is writing down every tour so that you‘ll have a good overview of your tours at the end of your stay. - Washing service if needed. You can ask Seya to get your stuff washed! That came in very handy during our backpacking trip. :-) To make long things short: Stop searching - start your holidays! :-)
Cons: Everything was just fine.

Cons: nothing
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The property has the perfect combination of Beach and relaxation as you can sit by the pool or enjoy a stroll down Weligama Beach. A little out of town, you miss all the hustle and bustle of the main strip which is nice if you want some relaxation. The staff are super friendly and can help organise cars, Tuk Tuks etc. Breakfast was great too, options between Sri Lankan or Western food which was nice.
Cons: The location is between Mirissa and Weligama which is great, however they aren't walkable distances so you do need to take Tuk Tuks either way, so if you're happy with that, then its great, but if you're like us, and like walking, it did get a little frustrating as there isn't a lot to offer in terms of food or things to do nearby.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Right next to beautiful beach. Very clean and very friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Nothing to complain about but to improve I think they should look at their environmental impact and use more eco-friendly options I.e. don't give plastic water bottle and rather refill glass bottle in rooms.

Pros: The view was beautiful We spent more time out the hotel, so not much to review on facilities, but the pool looked good.
Cons: We struggled in this hotel with language barrier Check in was also very awkward, they wanted us to pay before hand and give our Passports. The breakfast was a bit disappointing, again trying to communicate was difficult. They don't have a breakfast menu to look at so they ask you everything. And everyone gets confused. Fruit juice,cereals and yoghurt to be on serving tables to we can access to it ourselves They didn't know what honey was. I kept getting maple syrup Didn't get asked how our stay was when checking out Also the bed made such a noise when sitting or turning over

Cons: Nothing!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: From the moment of our arrival, we were transported to a place of enchantment. From our private guide, to the fresh coconuts, to the wild peacock, Hermon wandering the property, to the balcony overlooking the ocean and infinity pool, every detail was perfect. So much care was put into delighting the guests, anticipating our needs, and creating a full service experience that exceeded all my expectations. I enjoyed the private cooking class with Chef Vinnol, and the delicious multi-course Sri Lankan tasting breakfast with Kodagoda, and the tour with Cheminda. The private steam room in the shower was a luxury in the morning. The wifi was EXTREMELY good - I was able to do business video trainings with my media coaching clients, and an audio podcast interview with no problems. A slice of heaven.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Quiet location, comfortable room & 5 min walk to restaurant & bars & beach.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Place was clean which is very important to me. The shower had good pressure and hot water. The location was convenient though there are many more options closer to the beach.
Cons: The train line is literally a few meters away, this means you’ll wake up very early, like 7am, every single day from the noise. The rooms have paper thin walls and you can literally hear everything. The check out time is 10:30 (???) which I find unacceptable really. For the price paid, I would expect more (around 25 usd no breakfast and our room had no ac - others have but this one didn’t).
7.5 Good
Pros: Quiet place away from mání tradic. Clean and comfortable room.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: View from room. Beach. Fantastic view. It was one of the best places I have been to.
Cons: The access road to hotel a little congested and a little difficult to find. Anyway it was not so much an issue.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The availability of the staff and their effort to make you have a great stay, fixing ad hoc activities and services.
Cons: The irregularity in the wifi connection as well as the power shortage but not due to the hotel.
4.5 Okay
Cons: The staff failed to prepare for the holiday and there was essentially no food or drink available from the kitchen and bar. The pasta that was prepared was Mediocre at best, but more like unappetizing. Turns out the owner was away and the staff left behind did not have the capacity to manage a small hotel. Not having food would be less of a problem if there we’re any other close by options, but the property is very off the beaten path and there are no other restaurants or businesses close by. And while the owner can do little about this, the beach is suffering from severe erosion due and has a good deal of garbage in it.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Chef made us happy with great lunch. Location. 5 min to/from Weligama beach is just great
Cons: Regular power cut, but it's not due to property its overall issue in Sri Lanka. But having a generator onsite would definitely benefit.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Spacious room with all necessities! Air con and ventilation available. Own balcony with ocean view! Very kind and friendly staff!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: So close to the water! If the weather was better, perfect area for snorkeling. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the restaurant meal was the best we had around Weligama.
Cons: It's a fair walk into town, worth it for the location on the water though.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was likeable
Cons: Nothing comes to my mind
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Lazing around in the 'chillout area' was a highlight of our Sri Lankan holiday. This deep verandah with comfy sofas is practically in the sea... the sound of lapping waves, sea breeze, cold beers to hand. Perfect.
Cons: Breakfast isn't great here. And while our eve meal was tasty, most of the items on the extensive menu seemed to be 'not available tonight'.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view from this place is incredible. A little paradise. Staff went out of their way to ensure we had a relaxing stay. We even saw a turtle whilst having a drink from one of the eating areas.
Cons: I think they would benefit from having a smaller menu, as this might increase the food quality, which was good but could be excellent.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: We loved the beachfront location and fabulous pool. It was such a beautiful relaxing spot. We also really enjoyed spending time on our balcony - great room (we booked upstairs seaview).
Cons: The food and drink was overpriced.
6.8 Good
Pros: The grounds are beautiful. So is the pool and so is the room. You get your own pretty private beach too.
Cons: The staff barely welcomed us when we arrived and they aren’t very attentive. The food was average. But what’s disappointing is how much you pay to get average food and service. Plus, we had to pay $100 aud for an extra person for a piddly bed and breakfast. When I booked I booked for 3 people. But apparently somewhere in the ‘ fine print’ is the extra charge. I walked into this place loving it and left disappointed
7.5 Good
Pros: Very nice infinity pool and well-maintained luxurious garden Ocean view Good quality of food
Cons: Very over-priced accommodation, AC not properly working, water pools on the floor after heavy rain Poor service for such a high-standard Villa e.g. we once asked for towels at the pool, and they never arrived that day, poor hospitality Poor isolation of the beach hut, smell of humidity inside.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location. Perfect secret beach. Rooms. Immaculate service. The pool and garden. The views. Everything.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Room, breakfast, food, view, pool, beach, relaxation, comfort, style.....this place has it all
Cons: Staff could make somewhat of a little more effort and attention
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is a really beautiful property with very attentive staff. The food and service were excellent!
5.5 Okay
Pros: The house itself is beautiful, and the location is stunning.
Cons: This is a very over priced place to stay. The garden rooms are difficult to stay in being dark, poor washing facilities with a sink in a converted cupboard, and overly fussy with bits and pieces. At these prices, smartly turned out staff would offset the immediate sense of the place being run by locals with insufficient understanding of hospitality. The food options are poor, with an expensive menu on offer in US dollars. Towels have to be sought and are past their past for the sunbeds, and drinks have to be chased up too. The supposed tuk-tuk stand outside the property does not exist, and the staff have to ring around to get you transport to Weligama or onwards. Its certainly a hands off place to stay, which could do so much more to impress and get good reviews.
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: The view
Cons: 1st night aircon very noisy and dripping water( had to sleep with ear plugs) bathrobe not clean can smell the perfume of previous guest, breakfast chocking , staff doesn’t look happy to work there. I can’t advertise for this place , I WILL NEVER GO BACK I am traveling now for the last 3 weeks and it’s the first time it happens
7.5 Good
Cons: They dont have a restaurant. That makes things very difficult.
