A gem at the side of the river

* Fabulous staff. * Wonderful relaxing location. * Delicious fresh Food
Myself and my husband Spent six wonderful days/nights at the waterside and one day hope to return with our sons/ family. The Waterside was everything we wanted from a holiday stay.. Set at the side of the river, a short boat or tuk tuk ride from Bentota beach, restaurants and shopping areas. We found the location to be excellent set within a local village full of interesting local people. The rooms were spotless clean, containing large extremely comfortable bed with aircon, fans, fridge and regularly changed bedding and towels. Flower decoration was placed on the bed every Evening, a different design nightly and was a lovely gesture. The large balcony overlooking the gardens, swimming pool and river is just delightful for relaxing and watching wildlife, birds and people in boats on the river. Staff were excellent arranging boat trips, fishing, whale watching and much more. Sue the owner and all staff were incredible people and a joy to get to know. The food was fresh, cooked as required. To taste. A massive thank you to all of you at the Waterside Bentota. I would not hesitate to recommend this as it is definitely a gem.

Fantastic property for a relaxing stay in Bentota

Comfort, relaxation, food
We are a family of 5 and we had a great time at the Waterside. Great location... quiet yet not far from the beach and other Bentota hot spots. The staff are VERY attentive... maybe a bit too attentive :-) Food was great. Easy to relax and get your mind off things while the kids enjoy the pool. Also lots of activities can be arranged by staff.

Basic accommodation

Friendly and attentive staff
There was nothing particularly wrong with our stay but there was nothing particularly great either. For a basic hotel significantly cheaper than beachfront resorts this was ok. Staff were friendly however the hotel was very basic and bathroom a bit old. No safe in rooms also. During our three day two night stay we were the only people staying at the hotel, a bit weird!

Wonderful Stay

Stayed here for the first 2 nights of our Sri Lanka trip to get over the flight. Perfect place to relax, only 6 rooms here, good clean pool,great food,lovely views over the backwater, just a wonderful place. Re-booked & spent the last 2 nights of our trip here, would recommend to anyone if you like the smaller more personal friendly type of accommodation. Also had great Sri Lankan cookery lesson!

Perfect for relaxation with excellent service

The beautiful and peaceful riverside location, The high standard and cleanliness of the rooms, restaurant and kitchen. The efficient and attentive owner and staff.
We stayed 3 nights here after leaving a 2 week group tour of the island. It was the perfect place to relax in peace and quiet but with plenty of interest nearby including the excellent beach. We chose this particular hotel because it is small but it offered everything that we needed and the staff arranged everything we wanted including boat trips, local and long distance transport and a cooking demonstration. We ate local dishes from the menu and the food was excellent.
