good value

lots of space; good location with great river views; restaurant below was very good.
Overall, excellent value with all usual mod cons for use. Only two improvements required, a television in each apartment and the wi fi was very slow and sometimes none existent. Was recommended by theowner to use the grocery store for quicker wi fi.

Great apartments!

Very spacious, view to the river, reasonble price
Apartments are really big, have a lot of light in the room. Kitchen is equipped with everythig you need for a long stay. They have a good restaurant on a river bank with a local live music in the evening. On mondays there is a big market just near the restaurant,where you can buy fruits and vegetables. It's a great choice for a long stay in Bentota, especially if you prefer to cook by youself.

Great stay

Location, Price, Comfort
Great stay,lovely place and great deal on the apartment! Just be sure your key works to get into the apartment complex! Mine didn't (or was very tricky which I hadn't mastered) and was locked out for 30 minutes in the middle of the night and had to wait until someone in one of the other apartments let me in. Otherwise, great place!

Efficient and helpful staff, high standard of facilities, relaxed atmosphere
The pleasant spacious studio apartments with terraces overlooking the river are very comfortable. I was really impressed with the excellent standard, with all that you may need for self-catering provided, and a variety of little shops on the doorstep, while a very reasonable good food is available at the restaurant downstairs. The central location means that all the local sites and beaches are within easy reach. The staff is relaxed but efficient and helpful, all this allowing as much independence as you may want.

incredible value

price, location, comfort
I originally planned to stay at the Bentota Beach Hotel but they were full, so my driver took me here. I was overcharged for the room at the front desk and refused to pay until checkout. I believe the driver was trying to receive some kind of kickback from the hotel. I went to my room and checked out the price online and insisted on paying that way instead, so my advice is to book this place online as opposed to paying at the desk. Otherwise, my stay here was fantastic. The room is very spacious. Its a short walk(like 10-15 mins) or boat ride from the beach. The food at the restaurant was great and very reasonably priced without any added service charges(I tipped anyway). I met an awesome guy in the restaurant who gave me a good price on a river safari. My only other gripe is about the shower, which was a bit complicated to turn on. Finally, you can pay around 20 USD to rent a chair at the pool/beach at Bentota Beach hotel, which includes the buffet lunch, so no need to pay to stay at the hotel itself. Just go over there and hang out. Thumbelina saved me alot of money.

Was our own amazing apartment in an amazing locati

Location, Size of room, Boats to the beach!
The stay was utterly perfect! We booked it on a whim 2 days before after reading reviews about you having your own apartment and it being spacious! We were not dissapointed! Was an absolute Bargain for what it was! And soo close to bentota beach.. I Would Much Rather stay here then ANY opf the plush hotels in Bentota. Walking distance to everything.. They have a bar and resturaant and Boats that will drive you to the beach like a taxi. Or you have everything you need to stay in your room and relax. Would highly reccomend!

Great value for money

Price, room size and location
Thumbelina Apartments are great value for money. I got a massive room with separate bathroom and balcony for a very cheap price. The apartments are simple but clean and well looked after. Would recommend.
