We dropped in here for lunch at the Beach Bar Lounge. The service was very slow and it took an age for our order to be prepared. The wait was alright though as the food was pretty good, and since the restaurant was located just near the beach we had a great view while we waited. The restaurant does a...

I stayed here during the offseason in this nice and quiet guesthouse. The beach is just a short walk away and its ratet as the 9th best beach in the world. The couple owning the guest house are very friendly and the best cooks. They have a lot of tips about the area and can help with anything!

Thank you very much for the lovely feed back and for being critical on the "Dialog" signal and the TVs in the rooms. We have attended to problems relating to poor TV signals on a cloudy / rainy day by installing a different type of "Dish Antenna" and we found to have got over this problem. And with regard to...

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at this hotel. Hotel is value for money and treats locals and foreigners as one. Both times i felt the service was of consistent standard. Upon checking into the hotel the same staff member who checked us in initially in 2014 still remembers us this time round. This shows...

We stayed 2 nights but wished we could have stayed longer. Located right on the breathtaking Nilaveli beach, this hotel has that old charm & a rustic touch about it. The standard sea view room we stayed in was very good, clean, comfy & had all the amenities we needed like an efficient AC, cable TV, hot water, mini fridge,...

NBH has been one of my Favourite hotels aways - mostly due to its wonderful restaurant staff and location. The staff is not only obliging but so friendly and ever willing to go the extra mile. While rooms are comfortable & food is good , the property must step up in the following - 1) wifi - we were asked...

When we pulled up at Nilaveli, we were blown away. From the moment we walked in, it was breathtaking, instantly hit by the salty sea air, the picturesque corridor from the lobby (accentuated with the beachy feel with stone benches which we gratefully sank into), surrounded by huge open courtyards full of palm trees. We were greeted with a lovely...

You should not have given the impression to the viewers / readers of your comment that you were actually a paying guest of our hotel. 1. You wanted to make a boat trip with the clients you brought , and failed to make it 2. To obtain your accommodation and meals at the facility provided for the 'Chaufer/Guides, you objected...

This is an old higher end hotel. It had it's charm but for that money you can stay at Chaya Blue or another place like that. The 1st manager we had was a weasel. Service was far better at places we stayed in for a 1/3 of the price. He ignored us many times then made it seem like we...

We thank you for being very honest regarding the hotel, in spite of your unpleasant experience with a long haired (weasel) Manager. Your comment on the hotel being old and still holds its "Charm" is very much appreciated as that is the truth, and we assure you that money cannot buy the "Old Charm" that you so well described, elsewhere....
