Terrible value for money
Michael L [TA], , Hurworth-on-Tees, United Kingdom

For the price £40 a night this hotel is outrageous. It's in such bad condition, literally falling apart and filthy. The pool area is terrible with planks sticking up out the decking with nails coming out. Health and safety hazards everywhere. Make sure you go elsewhere for better value.

Good budget hotel in excellent beach location
Declan O [TA], ,

This is a good budget hotel on the nice beach. Pool is lovely, just beside the beach too. However the side of the pool has angled slippy tiles. My kids and I both succumbed to it and fell so beware and best not for kids as young as ours. Rooms smelled a bit musty but otherwise were fine, clean and comfortable. We even had the unexpected bonus of 3 fish ponds within our rooms!

2 Great days in Hikkaduwa
Ines S [TA], , Povoa de Varzim, Portugal

We stayed our 2 Last days in srilanka in this charming hotel by the sea, and it was a very nice experience!
It's cosy place with an interesting decoration, friendly staff, amazing view and the best breakfast!!!
Needed some renwals, but nothing significant!!

Run away as fast as you can!!!!
Vanja S [TA], , Doha, Qatar

After years of traveling around the world i never had such an horrible experience as i had with this so called hotel.
First of all the smell of dump and urine is first you get once you come in. But the real horror starts when you meet the staff. I've booked hotel trough the and nowhere on my booking was said that i need to pay for the 5 nights in advance. But the owner insisted, claiming its policy????,remember? After about 15 min of his empty talks I've decided to leave as it was obvious that he just wants to make sure that he pocketed my money. 4 days after that, fee for the full 5 nights was deducted from my bank account with explanation that is their no show policy. i was not aware that i was invisible up to that point. i was obviously in that damphole for at least 15 min. So its not the case of not showing up. I also did not cancel. it was dispute and by the law they have no right to charge me for that. When I went to sort out this matter I was met by extremely hostile receptionist and from that point I could not get in touch with owner. on the end i reported the whole case to the police.
So if you want your hard earn money and holidays to be ruined by one greedy man,man that brings the shame on beautiful people of Hikkaduwa,then by all means book yourself this hotel.

Good - Over Priced
Azztan [TA], ,

Very average
Me and my girlfriend stayed here for two days there are much cheaper places down the road which have exactly the same rooms and service.
There is a lovely view from the restaurant over looking the ocean.
The the pool was always full of dead insects.

Amazing staff
Benjamin... [TA], ,

Stayed here for over New Years for 10 days. The staff were incredible and super friendly.

Rooms are cleaned daily. On really hot days the ocean almost isn't cold enough but the pool at Nippon is the perfect temperature.

You walk straight out onto the beach from the pool area.

You Get What You Pay For

The family who runs this hotel is very nice. I wish they would take a little more pride in maintaining the property. Sitting just in front of an amazing beach, they have the chance of having a great place, however things seem to be not well taken care of. The rooms are relatively clean and the place seemed safe. For the price paid it was just fine.

Good Budget Hotel
Dinithi83 [TA], , Colombo, Sri Lanka

I stayed there with friends for a weekend. great Location. Rooms are ok but our AC was creating a loud noise when we switched it on therefore we couldn't use it. Pool was not safe at all. the tiles are not maintain well and I got my toe cut from a sharpen edge and I saw three other guests getting injured. Its a nice hotel but the management is not taking care of this great place well

Room Tip: Rooms on the left hand side are better.

Wonderful locations. Great rooms.
CanaMum2 [TA], ,

We wandered into this hotel when another one refused to allow children. This villa was warm and friendly the moment we walked in. The rooms are large with two twin beds pushed together, a sitting area and we had a bathtub in our room. The a/c works too well! If you eat in your room the tiny ants come out in the masses but the cleaning staff left a bottle of insect deterrant in the room. Our only complaint was door was only attached by one hinge so it was loud and needed some force to shut. Location wise we found it excellent. Great part of the beach near an excellent reef, close to a
Grocery store and trinket shops. Pool walls has sharp tile edges from the missing groat but they warned us a few times so we wouldn't get hurt. Ate lunch here and wasn't too impressed. Dish was okay and service was terribly. Eat somewhere else.

Good location
Rowlii [TA], , Perth, Australia

We booked 2 rooms at this hotel. One was upstairs and one downstairs, both close to the pool.
By Sri Lankan standards both rooms were clean, with good beds, good air conditioning, reliable hot water, clean towels. Internet worked most of the time. The upstairs rooms may be newer as ours was slightly nicer with a better bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel fronts directly onto a very nice beach and is close to the best snorkeling, swimming and surfing locations. It's also a short walk to a swimming beach where the sea turtles come in to feed each day... a truly amazing experience. Pool was a bit dirty, but who needs a pool on such a nice beach. For the price, this hotel was a pleasant relief after a long list of terrible experiences and scams at most of our other Sri Lankan hotels in earlier weeks.

Room Tip: Rooms close to the pool may be better. Upstairs rooms may be a bit more modern with nicer bathrooms
