Nice and cozy but needs renovation
Bossebert... [TA], ,

We were 4 days at the hotel. It is a very nice old building where the Dutch governor stayed a summer cottages. There are build 20 new rooms to the hotel with air condition. The rooms are nice but the place needs renovation. The pool looks dirty - it not but the button needs painting, there are a lot of mosquitoes because of all the plantation. The staff is very friendly, there is internet in the reception and in the restaurant - but it is slow (it is slow all over Sri Lanka - so it is not different from other hotels)

Beautiful charming hotel
pinklane... [TA], , Portsmouth, United Kingdom

I loved my stay here especially the pool and the beautiful grounds. However they really should throw away all the old stained sheets as both rooms I was in had the same problem. Breakfast and WiFi were good. Excellent staff service.

Room Tip: Bungalow blocks second from main building

Great hotel
Herman H [TA], , Schilde, Belgium

Nooitgedacht is situated just outside the "real" beach area. The beach is a ten minutes walk through a street full of restaurants and little shops.
The huge garden protects you from noises of the road and on top of this at the back of the garden it gives you the feeling you are somewhere very special.
There is a lake full of lotus flowers, you are surrounded by wild birds of all sorts, monkeys are in the trees (sometimes) and a large "veraan" paid us a visit.
The best are the superior rooms at the back with a view on the mountains. Rooms are clean with great shower facilities and a nice balcony.
Restaurant and interior look good.
The swimming pool is huge and very clean.
The only negative remark we can make is about breakfast as it is basic and too focussed on western tastes (a lot of bread).

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are the best (also the most expensive but worth it)

Tropical Tranquility with Personable Service
CaseyFlem... [TA], , Doha, Qatar

My wife, three young boys and I spent a week at Nooit Gedacht in what was our first visit to the magical island that is Sri Lanka. We had been attracted to this hotel by its claim to be close to both beach and jungle and we were not disappointed! The hike to Jungle Beach was great fun and a rewarding challenge. The breakfast was superb and the service smiling, friendly and efficient. The boys made friends with the lucky cow that had been saved from the slaughterhouse and that now grazes in peace on the front lawn and which is reflective of the sympathetic and sustainable approach which the owners take to conducting business. A treat, a delight and a week we'll never forget!

Room Tip: The more modern rooms are more comfortable and mosquito proof!

Great choice to stay when in Unawatuna!
Apinash S [TA], , Colombo, Sri Lanka

We stayed in one of the Ambassador rooms (2 rooms interconnected).

Nooit Gedacht is a nice base to be at when in Unawatuna as it is away from the main party scene (You can get some shut eye in the early hours of the morning). It has large gardens and a mountain as a backdrop.

Overall: Clean rooms, clean bathrooms, good service, mediocre food.

Will be back!!

Tranquil haven
DavieP_11 [TA], , Dublin, Ireland

I stayed here with my partner for a few nights in January. We were a bit apprehensive having read the reviews. We were utterly blown away by the outstanding staff and the beautiful tranquil gardens. This is not a five star resort, and the price is very good. It is just stupid to quibble about not having 5 star luxury when you are not paying for 5 star luxury.
We loved it so much we extended our stay and then returned again at the end of our trip.
We found the breakfast to be impeccable and of the highest standard, equalling the breakfasts we had in the actual 5 star hotels we stayed in in SL and trust me, we are picky!
We stayed in the superior rooms which were perfectly comfortable.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It is excellent value for money.

Pleasant enough, breakfast is poor
culture_v... [TA], , Dubai, United Arab Emirates

This hotel is in a converted Dutch colonial building and so has some charm. It is however run down overall - even in the new block where our room was.

The hotel gardens are rambling and quite pleasant.

There are two swimming pools - the smaller of the two didn't look very clean at all so I would avoid

The breakfast is poor - poor quality ingredients and lousy coffee which was very disappointing

The hotel wifi only works in the lounge area and doesn't cover the bedrooms which was annoying

The staff were quite friendly and helpful

The hotel is in a great location only a few mins walk from the beach

This hotel didn't seem particularly clean - the room was clean but the bathroom felt run down and unclean - even in he new block

A good budget hotel overall but could definitely improve!

nice hotel
Sian11862... [TA], , Jersey, United Kingdom

We had a lovely seven night stay at this hotel after friends that were staying there recommanded it to us. The superior rooms were of a very high standard. And the staff very pleasant and attentive.
I have already recommanded this hotel to friends going to Sri Lanka at christmas.

Judgey staff
Parmi P [TA], , Plymouth, England, United Kingdom

The place itself was amazing and beautiful However, due to an incident the staff (more than 2 which was necessary) decided to come storming and call us names. We were staying as a group. Very judgmental staff and name calling just brought the whole night to a disgusting night. The situation could have been handled in a much more professional and mature way!

excellent for families
