Really disappointed after reading all the rave reviews about the place. I'm traveling and time is of the essence. Neela's Guesthouse couldn't honor my booking because apparently they were double booked - less than 24hrs before I arrive. They contacted the booking company to notify me. When I called to the guesthouse directly there was no real offer of an...

The atmosphere here is great with the lust and green inner garden and the actual qualityfeel (for the price!) the room and especially the bathroom had. My room didnt have AC and that was my mistake. There are guesthouses cheaper with AC but without the garden... The room had a safe which is unusal but great. The guesthousestaff is great...

We stayed 4 nights at Neela's Guesthouse at the top floor room. The room was spacious and clean with a huge balcony with sea view. We enjoyed just sitting outside, this is the only room on the top floor so it is very quiet and relaxing. The bathroom was good for Sri Lankan standards, but would expect better for the...

We stayed three nights at top floor. It was a balcony around the hole room and a nice view. Very comfortably beds in a clean room. The breakfast was ok with guite large portions. Our ordered pick up transport from AirPort went smooth. I recommend this place to those who want a small familiar and cosy stay.

From the moment we arrived at Neelas we felt welcome. All the staff were amazing and went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. There were 9 of us and we rented 3 rooms, they were all en-suite with air-con, a fan and net. The rooms were spotlessly clean and all had an outside seating area....

We stayed here for 3 nights and upon arrival we were given a lovely passionfruit juice and upgraded to the top floor penthouse - a lovely surprise. Room very spacious, very clean, comfy bed, big balcony, good wifi, safe and fridge. The location is perfect, right on the beach so you can enjoy breakfast on the sand. It is on...

We stayed here for 5 nights in February 2017. The staff is very friendly, the room spacious and the food very good. The hotel has their own beds in front of the restaurant that you can use and where they serve drinks. Don't hesitate, Neela's is a guarantee for a good time!

The only restaurant in Hikkaduwa where the staff greeted us with a smile. The food is decent and is also decent on the wallet. Good cheap place to drink, enjoy drinks, get a beach bed and swim in the beach.

And we will be coming back more I think. Why? The guesthouse is clean, the rooms are spacious and clean too. Bathrooms are clean and up to date. The staff and owners are friendly and helpful. And the location is at the beach, so breakfast and dinner can be taken with "the feet in the sand". Galle Road is busy...

This place was just charming. The friendliest staff, clean, cosy rooms with mosquito nets and a big fan above the bed. I believe each room has its own table and chair outside and a personal washing line.... Welcomed with a yummy juice, then the food here was really good too, apart from visiting a highly recommended rotti shop down the...
