    nice little hotel”
    Spent 2 nice nights here. Staff were very friendly and helpful, hotel was only 3 min walk from beach, and the pool was a bit small but good enough to take a dip and cool off. I would definitely stay here if I went to Bentota again!

    The owner was incredibly helpful and all staff were friendly. Organized great value trips and helped introduce me to local food. I stayed ten days and used Little Paradise as a base. Beautiful garden and huge breakfast. I would definitely go back and recommend to others. Thx for letting me stay!!!

    Nice staff. Pity about the facilities. ”
    When we arrived our rooms were not available. They had been given to someone else. We had to go elsewhere. Our friends who we had booked with were given a small concrete box with terrible washing facilities and no window. When we were allowed back the next day we had a nice room on the veranda. The shower was a dribble of cold water and no water came out of the tap. The staff were very helpful and pleasant - but to be charged these prices for such substandard facilities is not an option I would want to repeat.

    Friendly guest house but needs improvement”
    The owners are very nice and friendly. We were warmly welcome despite our late arrival due to a flight delay. The bedroom was very spacious but not very clean unfortunately. It is quite noisy too so make sure you take ear plugs. The bathroom was quite dirty too. The location is great, only a few minutes walk to the beach. Breakfast was amazing, probably the best we had so far in Sri Lanka so that was a big plus. Overall, the service is good but they need to seriously improve condition of their rooms (cleanliness, painting) to catch up on value for money.

    Location, pool, room size
    Almost can't praise it highly enough for the basic setup. Spacious rooms with suite-like separate sitting part. (Fan and AC, those who book an AC-less rate have to keep a gentleman's agreement not to switch the latter on.) Large bathroom. Cute pool in nice garden. Close to beach and some railway noise, no road noise. Friendly staff. Delicious continental b'fast in the garden. Worth 2-3 'hotel stars' and that for this bargain rate. Reason for the low rates is probably some maintenance backlog. Pool workable but not very clean, and lacks a pool shower. No cleaning of room in the 2 days we stayed, which also did not give the chance to ask the staff about 3 broken (secondary) lights. No bathroom amenities. No shower curtain. But hey, for this price level those are all peanuts - one often experiences shortcomings like this at considerably

    We weren't terrible happy. A lot of mold on the desk and shower. The place was not the cleanest with ants. The gardens were unkempt. The staff was great however. We were better off in Hakkaduwa at less than 1/2 the price.

    Nice but the Train is quite loud in the morning. Also, we booked 2 days when we arrived and in the evening the guy came to us and told US we have to leave the next day so we can only stay one night because others had booked the room too. Consequently we checked agoda and there were still 2 rooms available. Otherwise we porbably had to leave.Bad, disappointing service

    Swimming pool swimming pool and breakfast
    We booked a family room as all other rooms were fully booked. When we arrived the room was dark and dingy. Needed a good cleaning!! No balcony for us to chill. We managed to sit on the balcony outside other people's rooms but not ideal. The saving grace was the swimming pool and breakfast. We hired a scooter by asking the boy who served breakfast, it was easy and convenient worked out after a little bartering about £5 per day. Very impressed and came with helmets.which were a little on the larger size. The hotel staff are very nice and helpful

    The nicest guest house I've ever lived!”
    Clean room, kind host, and convenient transportation.
    I really enjoyed a great time in this guest house during my 2-day trip with brother. The host is so nice and kind to us, she offered fresh fruite juice to us for free when we get there, and also told us some nice spots and useful information to travel, which is really very helpful. The room is very clean, quiet and tidy, makes you just feel like at home. There's also a beautiful little garden in the guest house with flowers in full bloom, very impressive! And the guest house is very close to railway station and bentota beach, just 5-minute walk,very very convenient, it's definitely the best guest house I've stayed in Sri Lanka!

    Utterly disappointed!!!”
    closer to the beach, closer to the public transport, nothing else
    I booked this place based on the positive reviews and photos published on Agoda. However, as soon as arrived there I realized it is much different from what they had advertised. First of all do not expect a "car park", since there is only space for just one car under the portico. (Luckily we were the only guests having a vehicle during our stay.) The room was very basic but acceptable… but unfortunately the bathroom was virtually a smelly tiny damp cubicle which was quite awful. (By the way it was the double room by the Pool, so I'm not sure about other rooms in general). Our biggest surprise/disappointment came, when we were at the breakfast! First it was one of the most pathetic examples, if you could call it an “English Breakfast” as they say. Second, the dining area was so much infested with flies, we had to just gulp down whatever served and move away as soon as possible. They of course warn the guests about using the swimming pool... and it is valid because there were so many razor sharp edges, and we were extremely lucky not get any injuries. Therefore, just consider as there is no swimming pool unless they would repair it totally. This was one of the worst stays for me anywhere and sadly I would not recommend it all!

    We are very happy that we chose this hotel. The sri-lankan family who runs the hotel is so friendly, helpful and serviceminded. We stayed here for 12 nights and we will stay here next time too. Close to the beach and to the Bentota centre and to Aluthgama. Very nice breakfast and lovely surroundings.

    close to beach and train station!
    The hotel was a little bit hard to find, the rooms are very simple and basic, best thing about the hotel was that its very close to the beach, around are good restaurants with the live music which was great fun. Swimming pool unfortunately was very big disappointment, the day was very hot and i really was looking forward to go to pool, but seems like its very old swimming pool and the floor quality is not great, so i had a really bad cut on my feet.

    I was one night and I paid 25$. The room was regular, the swimming pool was a little bit dirty... The staff was really friendly and the breakfast was good. I think that 18$ could be a reasonable price... Or, improve rooms, Aircon, etc.
