Nice Mt Lavinia Guesthouse, But not the Real Name
Quiet, great location, nice staff
This is a good guesthouse with a great staff, but it is not the White Nest. The address given for the property is 48A Hotel Road. Easy enough, except there is no sign at all, just the entrance to a private dwelling. If you ring the bell or call the number, the nice man will pop out and walk you down a side street to the Trilanka Guesthouse, which is where we actually stayed. Travelers need to know that this is a tough one to find without a local SIM card phone. Other than that, the place was good and the staff was great.

Simple, great service, near beach.
Service was wonderful, location was perfect and quiet. Beautiful.
I was pleasantly surprised to find such a clean, quiet place in Mt. Lavinia. The hotel is within a short walk from the beach and the service was wonderful.

Sleeping ok
Close to the beach and Mount Lavinia Hotel
This is a private home not a hotel. Go to your room and you do not usually crooked path through the lounge upstairs, because the family stays in the living room to a large extent. So if you ok with enough room and you do not need any more room for maneuver in the yard and you do not so this is where the ok choice.

Warm welcome from owners.
Owners were very friendly, a nice couple
The room and bed were fine, but every cupboard and wardrobe were full of clothes. The bathroom was inadequate, the wc cistern did not work, the shower produced a mere dribble of water and there was interesting variety of resident wildlife,cockroaches etc, The "houseman" who was our main point of contact was totally hopeless. Breakfast was awful 1 egg omelette with two whole chillies certainly woke you up. Cold toast and cold coffee to follow. The most expensive laundry in Sri Lanka 1000 rupees for 8 items and not ironed. If the ownersa wish to get good feedback they should address the methods of their staff.

Great Place to Stay for Budgeted Travel
Owner Anil and his wife are very helpful
A very decent place to stay for a budgeted traveler. Not heavy on the pocket and location is good. very helpful and ready to get things done for you. Breakfast was good (nothing fancy, simple bread, omelet, butter, etc ), but i Loved it especially as I had spent 2 weeks in Shanghai before that, so I guess i was craving for it. Overall an excellent experience. Do not expect the luxury of a hotel. But it is very good when compared to other hotels of similar price.

Lodging run by a kind Buddhist Family
Hospitality, Kindness
I stayed at the White Nest in June 22,23, 2012. The owner family is kind and have nice hospitality. The twin bed room I stayed was cozy and clean. You can access the Lavinia beach and station on foot in 5 minutes. You can ask the family about anything you want to know.

Its a Home Stay Not a Hotel
Close to the beach
Rooms are very ordinary. AC is not efficient.Rooms are not cleaned each day unless told. Breakfast is horrible. Toasts are are as hard as rocks with one boiled egg and a banana. Our room did not have proper ventilation. This not worth !!!!!!!!!
