Wonderful staff!!

Staff were so helpful and suggested trips / lots of things for us to do - really made our stay!! We also loved being right by the lagoon as we were taken by boat to a local market and the view
We really enjoyed it - the staff were so friendly and helpful! The setting was lovely and so quite. The hotel arranged for tuk tuks to take us wherever we needed to go and we really enjoyed our stay!!

hone away from home

Spotlessly clean, beautiful property , fairly good service by some of the staff.
It was great. Very relaxing. Food was a little issue as probably their cook had taken ill. Service was also impeccable. Would recommend it if you need a quiet relaxing time. It's a home away from home.

Perfect bolthole

Individual attention, location on edge of river, quiet.
Our stay here was a wonderful experience, it is a small hotel with lush lawns leading down to waters edge, rooms are upstairs with wonderful views over the river. Staff are very helpful and accommodating - if you want somewhere out of the way and a little more bespoke than the big hotels lining the seafront this is for you.

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!
