    We enjoyed our time at Angel rest. The breakfasts were amazing! The place was close to the beach and walking distance to all shop and restaurants. Whilst features were basic, everything was immaculately clean! Thank you very much for a great stay!

    Great value, location and friendly”
    We originally booked for one night but afterwards extended our stay by a day. Upul and his wife were extremely welcoming hosts who ended up driving us on the uda walawa safari and Ella afterwards for a great price. The room was simple but clean and had its own private bathroom. With it being a five minute walk from the beach, it's excellent value!

    Fantastic stay! ”
    We've originally booked one night, but ended up staying there till the end of our holiday! The room is very clean, has a nice mosquito-net, big bathroom, cosy balcony and AC. Also the Wifi works very good. The family is really kind and welcoming. They helped us a lot with organising our days and even arranged transport to the airport, so that we could enjoy our holiday the fullest. The breakfast and dinner were always delicious. We would recommend this place to EVERYONE!

    A farce ”
    We booked and paid for this in advance. We arrived. It was all very confusing. We were eventually told that he Russians guests currently staying had asked to stay longer so they had no room for us. We were sent down the road to a new guesthouse, which was distinctly average with a very small room. The following day we were permitted to leave our luggage at the original guesthouse so that we could go on our whale watching trip. When we returned we asked how we would book a tuk tuk to talalla, our next destination. The owner kindly said that he was taking his children to their sports day, so he could take us to talalla. What a wonderful way to make up,for the farce the previous night, thought I. Not so, he charged us 3,000 rupees! We had the uncertain delight of he owner's children in the car who, whilst not unpleasant, were a couple of spoilt brats really. So, not unpleasant people I am sure, but quite chaotic. I note from the reviews this is not the first time this has happened.

    The location is nice, 3 min walk to marissa beach. the hostess and her family were very helpful and friendly. They provide whale watching trips as well. you may book with the host family. The rooms are clean, but there are mosquitos. Sleeping with bed curtain is better.

    Whale watching in Mirissa”
    The staff is very freindly, located at good area and clean
    In general it was OK but you have to negotiate over the price of the whale watching. In which breakfast is included, but also in the rate of Angel rest. So only cracker, banana and tea were offered as the breakfast. They took care of reservation whale watching in which free transport is offered, but it turns out that this is only for one way.

    A nice guest house”
    Cleanliness, Value for money, Location
    We booked room with AC, but actually when we reached hotel, there was no AC room at all. So house owner gave us non-AC room. On the second day, the AC room was available, and we moved there. So when we left the hotel,the house owner returned their money back to us for the difference, but the part which Agoda got they said they cannot return. This I could still understand. Actually this was not their fault, I use Agoda to book hotel for several years, and this is not my first time to meet such things: The update of room availability is not in time, so sometimes I can book this room, but actually the room is already booked by others. This is what I want to complain to Agoda. Let's go back to the hotel. Hotel is in good location, very quiet place, but just 5 minutes walk to seaside, and around 15 minutes to that famous No 1 Roti Shop. Hotel is also very beautiful like pictures. The house owner is nice guy, and gave home-made breakfast, which was delicious. The hotel is very clean, and the room on the second floor has balcony, but no AC. And there is one thing we should say that I had to share bathroom. Anyway, totally speaking, this is a nice guesthouse, and owner is nice.

    Stayed for two nights. any room service. Had to share the bathroom with other rooms. It was said that no room with attached bath would be free, and that was not true.Unfriendly housewife, friendly, very helpful man. A loud family in a loud surrounding: the house is situated at the side of a narrow street leading to the harnouer - so there is a lot of fishing business traffic of threewheelers in the morning.

    Best accomodation in our 3 week Sri Lanka trip”
    I would like to say everything, but I have to choose 3: hosts, food, location
    The hotel was very nice. The owner and his family were very friendly and helpful. I did not have dinner there, but if the breakfast was any indication, the dinner should be really yummy too. Tea and biscuits could be ordered at any time; the owner was happy to make a cup and have a chat. The location was great. With a beach party every night at a different club, i was afraid it would be too noisy. I did not hear a thing, yet it was only a 5 minute walk to the beach. Overall, definately a nice place to stay for the price. Probably one of the best options in mirissa, highly recommended!

    Food, hosts, room
    We had a really great stay in Mirissa - Angel rest was just perfect for us: Great sri lankan breakfast with hoppers, fruits, sambal and dal. The host, Upul, was very friendly. We had to share a bathroom, but it was always very clean so we didn't mind. The bed was not too comfortable for me and the road is quite noisy in the morning - which is the reason for the 4 star. otherwise I would definitely recommend this place and also would return! Thank you for a great time, amazing hospitality and good food.

    We had a great time. The host is amazing and the rest house is located close to the nice end of the beach. We weren't overwhelmed by the food but it was pretty good. And the rooms aren't quite as nice as pictured but they were doing some renos when we were there. Overall great value for money.

    Better and/or cheaper places available”
    Location
    The room was ok, but the electricity kept cutting out, and wifi did not work most of the time. You need to ask the owners every time you want to have wifi, otherwise they keep it switched off. There was no water at all one whole day, and they started explaining to me why, and when, and.. It is only when I explained that I really need the shower THAT day they offered the use of another bathroom, which is the bathroom that the family uses, so it was a bit awkward constantly having to check if they need it and if anyone else is using it, as it was on a different floor from the rooms. The location is ok, but there are guesthouses all around this one, that are better value. The household gets really loud around 6am, a lot of shouting especially in the morning was going on, and even the earplugs did not help. You need to ask for things all the time - wifi, toilet paler, water, electricity. They always ended up providing it, but it always seemed like a strain to them, and overall the stay was not comfortable because of this, and because of no water/no wifi/no... So despite an otherwise decent room, there are better options.

    Nice owner, Quietness, Affordable price
    I arrived at Mirissa at 9:30pm and it was a big mistake as the station is so small where there weren't any transports I could take. Luckily, the owner has came over to pick me up from the station. He has asked his wife to prepare a very nice dinner for me (free!). If you are staying at Mirissa, do consider to stay at Angel Rest. It is basic with all essentials, and gives you the "home-sweet-home' feeling. Highly recommended!
