After reading all the good reviews of this place on tripadvisor we were shocked to see the place. The non-AC room was extremely basic; the walls full of gaps for bugs to fly in; the bathroom dirty and the toilet had no flushing water. We moved to an AC room which was slightly more pleasant (still not totally clean) but which had constant traffic noise from the very busy main road outside. At night we also had noise from a disco on the beach. Some of the rooms face the other direction or are further from the road, so would not suffer the same problem. Our room had a balcony but due to the noise it was unusable (also, despite facing the sea, a large tree meant that it had no view at all.)
The 'gardens' of the guesthouse contain a filthy stream and other parts look like a construction site. Regarding 'fauna', there was a squirrel kept in a tiny cage, which seemed both cruel and unnecessary given how many wild squirrels there are. Some monkeys came to visit but the owner quickly chased them away.
The redeeming feature of the guesthouse was the breakfast - we have never been given such a huge quantity of fruit - papaya, watermelon, passion fruit, banana etc, as well as coffee, eggs, and toast. And it's only a few minutes' walk from the beach. Overall if you're on a tight budget then stay here but check the room location first. But you get what you pay for and we wished we'd paid more for somewhere nicer.

We had a pleasant stay in the sea view ac deluxe room..

We had a pleasant stay in the sea view ac deluxe room. Sam was very helpful and organised a great value whale watching trip where we saw a blue whale. He also had friendly trust worthy Tuk Tuk drivers on hand with local rates and I'm sure he'd be able to help organise anything else you'd like. A note of warning is that the hotel is on the road side and you can hear it from the rooms but we didn't mind considering the seA view from the balcony which also gets the evening and afternoon sun. If you want less roadside rooms the garden view rooms are probably a better bet. The single bed in our room had a sheet with a couple of old stains which i think they should replace and they should also get a bigger sheet for our bed as it was a little too small. Good central location too.

Nice view but expect a lot of moskitos
Mattegubb... [TA], , Stockholm, Sweden

Ok, quite near the beach, you just cross the road and reasonable prices for Sri Lanka that is. I lived quite high up i a sort of bungalow where the view was good.
The wi-fi works only if you cross the small bridge over the stinking river/stream where the office is. There the wi-fi works but also an abundant of moskitos which will eat you less so where I lived. The manager is quite helpful, likes to sell you everything.
I got a lot of bites on my legs that could be bites from lice.

Room Tip: The rooms near the road is preferable to those over the bridge that has unbearable many moskitos pro...

Good guesthouse, excellent location
Charlotte... [TA], , London, United Kingdom

Stayed 3 nights at this guesthouse and it was a great stay.
Friendly owner and very smiley staff welcomed us and showed us to our room right away. We stayed in a room with fan only (regretted not taking the air-Con one considering how hot it got during our stay), the room was spacious and clean, same thing for the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, we slept extremely well!Our room was a bit at the back of the garden so we couldn't really hear the traffic.
Location was great, close to everything!
We had breakfast there too, eggs and toast and fruits, nice and generous.
Price was good - good value for money, highly recommend.

Modern, Clean, Sea Views and so cheap! Perfect!
hannahlu2... [TA], , London, United Kingdom

We stayed here for 5 nights and loved it! its opposite the beach we had one of the top rooms in the new accomodation which had an amazing beach and sea view with huge balcony. The room was really clean and had everything you needed. We paid around £25 a night to stay here one of the cheapest places we found in Mirissa. The owner Sam was brilliant as well so helpful and friendly. We had a lovelty time and couldnt reccomend it more.

Friendly and nice location

Guest house has been extended recently with a building next to the main road.
We had an upstairs room in the back garden (old part of guest house), though the location was quiet except for the sound of fauna at night.
Rooms are small but simple and functional, comfortable bed with mosquito net.
Balcony with view on the nice flora garden.
Bathroom is not recent but clean.
Breakfast was not included with the room but was delicious and generous.

The owner Samantha and his wife Nilmini are very friendly and helpful.
We booked a whale watching tour through them, it was a great moment, about 4 hours tour on a 30 people boat. We insisted we want a respectful tour and they seem to follow gouvernement rules.
Samantha also organized us a taxi to go to our next destination.

Good value

best accomodation for our entire trip
teodora m [TA], , Sofia, Bulgaria

my boyfriend and i spent one month in Sri lanka,and this is the only place we came back to. The rooms are clean and new.The location of the place is perfect,from the White house you have a beautiful beach view,all the good restaurants are right next to you.The people that run the place did everything they could to make our stay there memorable.They arranged us a transfer to the airport at a pretty reasonable price.
Thank you guys!

Good location, good value

For the cost of the place and the location you get it's perfect in mirissa. Simply cross the road and you're at the main entrance to the beach. Always tuk tuks outside and staff always happy to help if you've got any needs. Only down side was the sewage river that ran through the complex. Didn't give of the best smell but at least it couldn't be smelt up in our room.

A real disappointment
Jennie H [TA], ,

After reading all the great reviews on here we booked for three nights here at around £22 per night (non a/c).

On arrival we were kindly greeted and shown to our room. I don't know what we expected really however it wasn't what we found. This really is a budget style traveller accommodation in a good location.

Rooms weren't clean, taps and shower really grimey. Rugs in the room were filthy. Bed was clean and also very comfortable.

There is a river that runs through the property and it smells of sewage which was a real bad point.

It's very noisy through the night, dogs barking all night and there was also a bird stuck somewhere between the wall and the roof which was fluttering around for hours!

We realised that our lock on our door also was broken and explained to the owner. He did say that it would be fine leaving it unlocked overnight but I wasn't so keen on doing that so he did kindly put a new lock on the door.

We had to check out after one night as unfortunately we just were not enjoying our time there. They were very good about this and allowed us to cancel the next two nights no questions asked which was very kind of them.

They are lovely people and the setting is good but I feel £15 per night is really the most that should be paid here!

The most friendly guesthouse in mirissa
hanako s [TA], ,

We revisited Samantha and Nilmini after many years, this time with our 3 year old daughter. It was wonderful to see them and the work they did to their place is simply amazing! They cooked us a delicious traditional Sri Lankan rice and curry and treated us as like a family member. Thank you so much for your hospitality! We hope to come back soon.
