Location is fantastic.”

The view from sea view room, the staff and location.

We enjoyed our stay. The hotel is fairly basic but quite adequate for the price. Balcony doors could do with double glazing as it is quite noisy with the ocean crashing below 24/7. Staff could ask guests who come in late at night to be more considerate of other guests by being less noisy. Pillows need replacing definitely - they were way past their use by date. But otherwise nice place, great location, really friendly helpful staff in the bar/restaurant. The food was quite good and reasonably priced. This hotel is very well priced considering where it is and compared to many others on the strip.

Right by the ocean, get awakened by the waves”

Location, great value, cleanliness

This resort was newly renovated and is right on the doorstep of the Indian ocean. Watch the sun set past the horizon and be awakened by the sound of the waves crashing against the coast. The rooms were adequately clean and water pressure sufficient, including heated showers. The only downsides are that they linked two single beds to make a double bed and therefore it was a little uncomfortable, but that wasn't much of an issue. More importantly, the staff were just average- they weren't rude, but they weren't warm and welcoming either. There's a shack that serves wonderful seafood, crabs and tiger prawns for US$10 per dish, two or three doors away from the resort which is a must-go. With its excellent location, it's still all in all a great choice to stay. Nowhere else in the world would there be a oceanfront room going for US$49.

Good hotel at beach front”

Good location, friendly staff, good food

We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel was good. Staffs were nice. Initially we didn't have a sea view room, but later they gave us sea view rooms, which are much nicer. The food is nice in their restaurant. Overall we liked it. But the beach was not great especially there are boats in front - not good for swimming.

Great location but small rooms”

Location

Great hotel with good service, coral sea beach are beautiful and do not miss the Crab & Vis restaurant in 5* Chaaya hotel just next door. Sirlanka is beautifully country with very friendly people, but they should not treat the tourist and travelers as money machine. In my option it’s wrong en not respectful to visitors that they have to paid fee for sacred places (in some places 25 USD a person).

Direct facing beach and friendly stuff”

Direct access to the lovely beach

simple modern and the hotel is new. Direct facing beach and with balconies or common balconies which face the beach to see the sunset. The beaches here are nice and with corals and you may see the turtle if you are lucky! The breakfast is quite nice and pool small yet functional enough for a good swim after the beach activities. A bit disappointed that although it stated having wifi at the agoda webpage but in fact there is only wifi at the common area. The hotel management is good and they do not mind giving free-upgrade room and late check out during non-peak seasons.

Ocean Front, Private, Small Hotel

the coral rock is a small hotel (about 30 rooms) and gives you a sense of privacy unlike the large resorts near by. the pool area is small but right on the beach. the ocean facing rooms have a lovely view, the staff is nice and helpful, we really enjoyed our stay.

Nice hotel at the end of main strip”

We stayed over Xmas and enjoyed the pool at this hotel. The breakfast made eggs to your preferences. There was lots of shops around for shopping and decent restaurants. If you are looking for evening outings then you will need to head further down the beach. The room was facing the street, can be loud at times. The bathroom is small. Recommend beach front room for next booking.

SO CLOSE TO THE SEA – FABULOUS VIEW!”

We had a great 2 night stay at the Bansei Hotel. Upon arrival, we were lucky to get an upgrade on the room. We had booked a Budget room but we ended up staying in a Standard, Sea View room. The service was great. Be advised - this is not a luxury hotel with buffets for breakfast. This is a budget hotel, but a very good one at that. And there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. (Be careful when crossing the busy street!) Now for the view… In contrast to some of the pictures on the travel/booking sites, there was virtually no beach directly behind the hotel. The beach to the South can still be accessed by descending a series of steps from the pool area. I’m not sure whether it’s a seasonal thing or whether it’s the sea winning the battle against the land over the years. THIS SITUATION HOWEVER, MAKES FOR A STUNNING VIEW IN THE HERE & THE NOW. When looking out from the balcony (of a sea view room), you feel like you are in a lighthouse or in a docked ship, because of the proximity to the sea. The pool is the ONE PLACE that beats the “Sea View” balcony. You get a special feeling (especially at night) when you are in the quiet, gentle pool glancing over at an unpredictable, ever-changing sea. This view is by far, the best I’ve seen out of all beach hotels visited. I would definitely come again in Dec-Jan if the prices don’t go up too much!

it's a good budget hotel right on the coral reef. we came to Hikkaduwa for snorkeling and this has one of the best locations. even some good Restaurants are near by. they don't have room service but u can sit by their pool and they have a bar there where u can get drinks to chill. only take sea viewing rooms (use the option on agora site) because some rooms are road facing and could be noisy due to vehicles plying on Galle road.

Nice clean hotel with spatious rooms, excellent beds and the best bathrooms I have seen in Sri Lanka. Quality of the shower can't be better. Some staff is too young and without experience, they don't offer drinks on the pool etc, my impression is that they can be easily better, but I rest very satisfied with our stay there.

Excellent sea view, pleasant staff and reasonably priced beer

This refurbished hotel is conveniently loacted on the main road to Galle with uninterrupted ocean views from balcony. Basic catering facilities. Linen needs to be replaced. Generally clean with pleasant but laid-back, very casually dressed staff. Very reasonably priced local beer at Rs.325;more expensive in a nearby basic restaurant.Suggest, catering facilities are improved and staff are encouraged to interact with guest more positively/enthusiastically rather than simply highlighting it's a "budget hotel". Laundry facilities are available but not advertised. Gives the impression that the management is not utilising the hotel's potential fully for some reason.

The sea view from the room, shops nearby

This is more like a chalet than a hotel. The seaview room was amazing. It was such a scenic view. But cleanliness is average and there were ants on the table. Towels were slightly discolored and no kettle. Bed was ok. We managed to sleep. TV has cartoon channel. Somehow I managed my stay with my young kids. My kids enjoyed the pool and beach. Reception only operates from 7am to 10pm. So if you reach there early morning, then you have to wait for the reception to come at 7am. The restaurant food is horrible. Dont eat there. Try the seafood place just beside the hotel. Overall, I enjoyed the ocean view from the room. It was very relaxing.

Cheap and Cheerful”

Price, location and pool area

I had read other reviews on this site and some had an issue with not getting free stuff. I guess it's like budget airlines, they can offer competitive rates because they don't give their customers things which they don't always want and need. So, you don't get the toiletries or tea and coffee making facilities but I don't care as I never use that stuff anyway. I'm more interesting in the price and it was very competitively priced and if staying somewhere that's clean, fresh and modern (as it's recently been updated) is more important than little bottles of shampoo, this is a good option. One reviewer complained that the noise made by the sea in the sea-view rooms was disturbing and yes, surprise surprise the sea does make a noise. You will also be able to hear traffic if you get a room on the other side of the hotel but that's true of pretty much any hotel room on that side in any of the hotels alone the main Galle Road. I was only there one night, so it didn't matter. I really liked the pool, bar, decking area - very cool. Again, someone complained about no private beach but none of the hotels on the Galle Road have a private beach - not one. So all in all a good decision.
