I spent two nights at Lion's Rest and my experience was just fine. However, the girls I was travelling with mostly had negative or unsettling experiences. These were as follows: 5000 Rs went missing from my friends bag when they were cleaning our room at check in (this was only theft and yes we did still stay two more nights despite that?) the same night after returning late another girl found a member of the staff passed out in her bed (they all have an extra key)- to be fair we had all been partying together and in and out of room but a bit creepy, and lastly the place seemed to put out a weird vibe at times unless that was just my hangover. We never ate there or really hung out during stay so not sure about that. Once again, my experience was OK and the price of the room/quality was on par with most I think. If you want a more chill/ safe place though just walk a few metres down the beach.

Stayed: March 2015, travelled with friends

The place might look ok and the staff chilled (in fact they are tired from yesterdays party), and we spent a nice afternoon at the seaside there.

But they and their neighbours like to have very loud parties (as in walls trembling) every now and then. Impossible to sleep - we got maybe half an hour of sleep only when there was a problem with the amplifier.
They did not offer any solution to us, refused to give back the money.

So if you want stay there and you want to sleep, make sure there will be no party (they did not warn us, although they knew we would have to go to Colombo in the early morning). Otherwise, prepare for a nightmare.

Stayed: January 2015, travelled as a couple

There are a lot of nice homestays, guest houses and hostels. But never ever stay in New Lions Paradise. The rooms are dirty. The beds are dusty and definitely were not prepared for the new guests. it was also kind of moist. The bathroom was filthy and had a lot of trash probably from the previous guests. It looks really old and poorly managed. And to make things worse we had a really bad encounter with the rude manager. He is very unprofessional.
