Clean and cozy
Idan A [TA], ,

Our room was a bungalow, more adequate for a couple. it was clean and cozy.
there is a nice little pool and also a small bar at the beach. could be a very good spot for couples who want to learn/ surf together.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are not ON the beach but rather near the beach (only 20 meters or so). most of the...

Ideal for learning to surf, but that's it
grnl [TA], ,

This is ideal if you want to do nothing but learning to surf, the beach break is ideal for beginners and right in front of the hotel, your view though is a huge Marriott hotel flat under construction next doors. On the grounds of the hotel it all looks nice and the managers are kind people service minded. However overall unfortunately below our expectations. The room we got was without AC which is unbearable at night since there's no airflow whatsoever, only option is to upgrade for extra money to room with AC. Mattress was easily to say horribly thin and bed made cracking noise at each tiny movement one makes. The food was fine but I've had way better in most simple Sri Lankan places, with some simple points of attention they could improve it substantially. Location is nothing special at all, trapped between the main road and the beach on a very small peace of land, for some chilling at the beach and enjoying your surroundings I'd recommend going somewhere else.

Great location ,shame about the noise
Blueskies... [TA], , Plymouth, United Kingdom

After booking here to visit friends and make use of the pool for a couple of days, we were really disappointed it was a) out of action and b) looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months.

The room was comfortable , good AC and close proximity to the beach. Breakfast included was tasty and enjoyable.

MASSIVE downside was the 12 hours of Russian house music that played continuously from 9am until 9pm. You could even hear this in the surf. I'm surprised no one has complained in weligama. Because of this there was little relaxing to be had, unless you walked 20 minutes down the beach, away from Good Story, but shame you couldn't sit outside your room to relax in quiet and tranquility.
Wouldn't go back in a hurry.

Room Tip: Book away from the road

I'll try for a balanced review but felt ripped off
Niall C [TA], , Brighton, United Kingdom

The good:

Funky decor in communal areas with lots of places to hang and use WiFi etc. The restaurant area is particularly funky and there is a modern art/ surf theme all around.

The rooms are clean and recently painted, beds large and comfortable - bathrooms functional, old fashioned and tired but I have to say spotlessly clean.

The manager, Alex was professional and engaging.

Most guests seemed happy if a little subdued.

Not so good:
tiny little beach area, although kitted out with some cool bed loungers, otherwise there isn't much room and soon any sun loungers are gone.
Drinks expensive by local standards and beach bar area uninviting. I went next door to W15 for a bucket of beer deal and to hang out in a relaxing atmosphere (so top tip is to drink next door for same or less cost and enjoy their facilities).

The pool was out of order. It looked filthy. Shame because the sea is so polluted in Weligama that it was the only place left to swim.

The bad:
I booked a budget room via booking.com. The room offered on arrival was an AC room. This means that all vents have been sealed so that the air-conditioning is more effective. Without AC the room is an oven because there is zero airflow. AC costs an additional $10 which I had no choice but to pay. #cheated
For total cost of room, I could have been on any of the good beaches within 20km, without pollution.

The totally unacceptable:
I was informed by the manager that the included breakfast was the best around. I consoled myself that the extra 10 dollars for AC would make it worthwhile. Not true.

I had a choice of 3 options (one was porridge), 1 of 3 not all. And I couldn't have eggs unless it was an omelette because there weren't enough (send someone the shop?). I negotiated scrambled eggs on toast as I figured similar to an omelette... I was allowed 1 egg scrambled! The waiter just seemed embarrassed. The coffee (water and milk) I had to ask be replaced. The next one was very good. Just such a basic thing to make sure is good.

Good story vibes
VictoriaS... [TA], , Moscow, Russia

Wonderful place for a great holiday if you wanna meet new people and have fun. You are always surrounded by cool crowd, in the center of the village, dj sets on the beach from good story residents and their friends. Also nice place for surfing - most if the people from other locations surf here. In the hotel u can find new soft boards, good instructors, and waves for beginners are perfect. Ans sunset..no comments) u can seat 2 hrs just watching the ocean and surfers with a nice cocktail from the bar..
Breakfast is good - 3 types to choose - pancakes with fruits and coconut, porridge with fruits and nuts, eggs. Yoga on the rooftop every morning with Nastya..best ever start of the day. If you wanna stay with the good vibes - this is a right place to choose.

Perfect place to stay in Sri Lanka!
Dmitry P [TA], , Moscow, Russia

This hotel is a perfect place where to spend your time in Sri Lanka. To begin with i would say that guys, who run the hotel are incredibly hospitable and will make your stay totally comfortable. Good story is located in the central part of Weligama bay right on the beach which provides all the guest with the great opportunity to surf! Moreover, there is a pro surf school with professional coaches who will teach how to surf. What is more, you can learn a lot about surf philosophy and waves. I had the amazing beach bungalow with the great view and i was really satisfied. Thanks to all the Good Story crew. Will visit you soon again!!!

Room Tip: ask for a bungalow!

Great restaurant, poor hotel
Paul h [TA], , Melbourne, Australia

The staff and food in the restaurant is great! Carthi the head waiter works very hard serving everyone and is extremely polite, the porridge is delicious. Our room was not great. We had heaps of mosquitoes (20+) and the bed was very thin and falling apart. The bathroom had an open drain which smelt pretty bad. The hotel was fairly clean. most of the staff are not very friendly or helpful (the cleaners are very nice!). Alex the manager was polite and helpful though. The guests and staff are mainly Russian and if you are not Russian it feels a little awkward. On the Saturday night there was a huge rave party till 3 Am which shook the whole hotel, it would be very fun if you are young and love to party however not if you have a family or looking to relax. The hotel is pretty overpriced, it is pretty much a nice hostel with great food.

Favorite place on the planet!!!!
Julia L [TA], ,

Second time spend my NY holidays here. ;) Everything you need if you are young, positive and want fun and relaxed, active and extremely sportive retreat. The spot is the best for the surf beginners as I am)
Beautiful sunsets, dj sets on the beach, fruit juices, delicious dinners at Good Story restaurant made the unforgettable beginning of my year.
And the main thing that makes a difference is the GS team - love&fun to everyone.
!!!!

It's was a great time!! Nice waves & the best food!!
Stepan N [TA], ,

We've staid for 2 weeks in January 2016. We really enjoyed - accommodation, very hospital staff, and especially food, I guess the best in Sri-Lanka. It's perfect place for those who want to surf, party (a little) and spent great time. Next we'll be back for sure.

Surf Heaven
dorfman77... [TA], , Riga, Latvia

I have spent 3 weeks at this wonderful place in late December - beginning of January.
Lovely kitchen, especially breakfasts. Hotel guys are super hospitable and open, sometimes you even forget that you are in a hotel, cause atmosphere is very cosy and friendly. Very nice people in the surf school and the yoga class. It feels like home in this place. Big thanks to Good Story team! Good job!
