Right across Unuwatuna Beach”
Friendly and hospitable owners, spacious, clean room with hot shower. Wifi was kind of slow and we were only able to use it well in the evening (11pm onwards). Breakfast was not included in the room we got but the food was good (we ordered separate for that). The place is near the bus stations towards Colombo (North West) and towards the East (Tangalle, etc) and a souvenir shop/ATM. A 3 minute walk to Unuwatuna beach. Recommended! A/C for us was not necessary since the fans was enough for us.

Great”
This was the best place we stayed in during our 2 weeks journey through Sei Lanka. The room and especially the bathroom were really great. Breakfast (Sri Lankan and continental) was very tasty. Only one or two minutes to the beach. The host were friendly and helped us whenever we had a question. We would definitely stay there again!

Best Guest House ever!”
We had a perfect stay at Sam's Guest House, there is nothing to complain about. Hassan and his family were very friendly and helpful. Everything was great: clean rooms, delicious food and the best service so far. The guest house is close to the beach and to the walking street of Unawatuna.

We stayed at Sam's Guest House for one night. We were very happy with the clean and pretty room and appreciated that the staff was so helpful. The breakfast was good and they organized a driver to Colombo for us. Very reliable. The WLAN was also very fast.

Close to the beach, too close to the road”
The room was nice and the staff was excellent. We had breakfast one morning and it was quite good. The only negative was that we had a room at the front of the building and the road noise was quite loud.

Fantastic!! ”
We changed our plans to come back to Sams because we had such a good stay here. Close to the beach, only a 2 minute walk. Rooms are clean and there's good hot water and water pressure which is hard to find in Sri Lanka. The family are so kind and their English is very good. They will do anything to help you and make sure your stay is just perfect. Last but not least the food! WOW! Don't eat anywhere else, best value for money and the tastiest food ever! We had Sri Lankan breakfast and rice & curry. The best food we have ever tasted - we came back especially for the food. The owner made sure we tasted the local Sri Lankan food and every dish was different from breakfast to the evening meal.

Very Good quality budget accommodation which is well above standard.”
Lovely family. Well located guest house albeit on the main road but very handy for buses to and from eg Galle, Tangelle. Guest house was well run, very clean, super staff and very relaxing. It is on the main road so do expect road noise. It is a flat 1 min walk to beach.

Amazing! *****”
Absolutly loved staying here, wish we would have booked for longer! - the family are so nice and welcoming, great english, so helpful and always smiling - EAT ALL YOUR MEALS HERE. The food is amazing, best food i have had in sri lanka and the best you will find anywhere near here trust me! The sri lankan breakfasts and curries especially. - hot shower, (which is a rarety for this price range we have found), with really good water pressure, just allow a bit of time for the hot water to come through. - we had a superior double with balcony and AC, this was a little slice of heaven on our travels and we loved it. - place is right on the road and a 2 minuite walk to the beach - gates are shut at night which made us feel very safe. This is absolutly the best place to stay we can not thank the family enough we loved it .... Just a shame its all booked up or we would have been coming back!

Wonderful family and guesthouse! ”
Sam's Guesthouse is a gem I believe. Our stay with them was wonderful. The room is large, the beds comfortable, bathrooms large and all amenities you need are provided. The location is literally a 2 minute walk across the road and down a path to get to a beautiful section of Unawatuna Beach. What is most noteworthy is the kindness of the family. Their warmth and interest in the needs of their guests was outstanding. The home cooked breakfasts were a standout compared to all other breakfasts provided in our 3 month stay in Southeast Asia. Additionally there is flexibility with the time you can have breakfast, which allowed us to do training swims in the morning, prior. This type of flexibility was also the first we had. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend them to anyone traveling to Galle.
