Quiet budget hotel but limited services

Good room and bed, next to beach and quite
The stay was pleasent in terms of having some quite time. The room was great compare to what I thougt - good and comfortable bed allowed me good sleeping. However, facilities in room is limited. Bring your own bathroom amenites as hotel just provides a soap and towel. A TV is also there but useless for foreigners as no English channels. A wardrobe and a working desk and chairs available in room and outside at the barandah too there are a small central table with two chairs. The wardrobe was broken in my room and I didn't see any hangers there. Bathroom was big enough with hot water facilities. Hotel lies in front of beach and restaurant facility is available with prior order - I only had a lunch there, which was just okay. Overall, it was good but for such a small hotel (only with 5 rooms) and very limited facilities the cost was bit high I guess - US$ 42 - I would pay up to 30 $ for such hotel. Please also note that there are no others nearby restaurant in this area, unless you walk a bit far - which I did but didn't like the food. Staff was good but only one of them was able to communicate well in English.

Good experience

It's small 4-5 cottage room setting with AC, internet at reception area, dining, garden and right bang on the beach
Stay was good, got cheaper rates for extended stay compared to online booking. All amenities were decent and in working condition. The dog took my flip flops on the beach 😜. Breakfast was fixed but good. Non stop bus service right outside the hotel and train station Induruwa is at walking distance. Bentota is a good 3 KMs away from the Hotel. Recommend to use combination of bus and train over tuktuk or cab.

clean comfortable beach access room

beach access, large comfortable room
a large room and beach access is great, poor internet connection and lack of food choices detracts. If you don't have a vehicle or transport you're not going to be walking to find any food choices. If you want a nice room and a pretty beach then this is a good place for that.

nice place at the beach

close to the beach, good price, relaxed
This one provided good value for money. A small place with good service minded staff. There isn't much to do in Induruwa especially in low season when I was there, but that's what I came there for, to do exactly nothing. A good weekend retreat from Colombo. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Some options for eating a bit further down the road, but their curry was excellent.

Great value for beach front

Large clean rooms, excellent service with managers who understand Western service
Very pleasant and home welcome landing at this lovely quiet hotel located on a beautiful beach. Short beach front walk to nearest Ayuervedic clinic meant that you could spend budget stay in an up market part of Sri Lanka. I recommend this place as a safe clean and friendly destination if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing retreat. The owners also have a restaurant a short trip away but do have cooks on site who will prepare most delicious local Sri Lankan food at a fraction of the price offered in neigbouring hotels. Very good indeed!
