Sunil's Rest
Ranked #29 of 51 Kataragama B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 April 2015 via mobile

We crashed there and stayed for a night. Room had only fan (we decided not to take an a/c room) and it was still ok. Staff really frendly...manager borrowed us a Srilankan electric charger and binoculars for a safari the next day.

Safari was spectacular. We saw a leopard, crocodiles, buffalos, all kind of birds... Driver was well equiped (had a bird book so he could explain all birds we've seen)...

Great experience. Warmly recommend.

Stayed: April 2015, travelled with family

Stayed 2 nights in Kataragama, and this guest house was perfect as the rooms were very clean as was the bathroom. Towels were also provided. It´s on the main road but not too noisy and the rooms look out onto the paddy fields behind. It´s a short 10 minute walk to the Temple. Everything you need is provided here including rice and curry in the evening but as in most places, you need to order in advance. The evening Puja at the temple is well worth going to, but weekends are busier and more fun to watch than on a weekday when it is more quiet.

Seven of us stayed in recently. This is a small family run place – the owner and staff are nice and feel welcome. It’s a basic place. So, this may not be for people who look for all the luxury. The rooms are clean, bathrooms are ‘ok’, the rural scenery from the balcony and seeing the peacock dance was great. A bit surprised to see no top bed sheet provided, but supplied on request. Wi-Fi is available, but not strong enough to stably use in rooms. But, overall it's value for money and recommended for others.

Its a small basic hotel but clean. Good value for money as the hotels near by are way more expensive. On the main road hence easy to find. The Wifi was working but not stable. The tree at the back was making so much noise during night due to wind and hope they cut that tree. The main temple is close by. We enjoyed the stay at Sunils.

We were quite disappointed whem we saw that the place described by lonely planet didn t match the reality. We ended up in a hotel in fact..no trace of the nicely ranked guesthouse. The room was quite clean (apart from the bathroom) but if you call yourself "hotel" you expect your bed linen and towels to be changed everyday and this didn t happen. Nevertheless, we have to say that sunil still remains one of the few decent accomodations in kataragama.
