Octopus Garden House
Ranked #36 of 132 Tangalle B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 January 2015

I really liked the rooms here and the breakfasts, would have stayed for longer but really wanted somewhere we could swim every day. To be fair when the swell dies down it's quite pleasant at the beach here. Otherwise you could get a three wheeler to one of the other beaches on the big days. Also the ocean breeze gets right into the place which is an added bonus. The long stretch of beach with a multitude of restaurants is another advantage, the down side to the central location is some traffic and beach party noise of an evening. Steve and Verena were really helpful and it seemed like a decent location to spend a week or two in.

We stayed for 9 nights which started with a lot of unexpected rain (including a deluge on Christmas Day!). We were quite unwell with flu as well, so it was a difficult start but the owners and staff at Octopus Garden were so thoughtful and friendly that we got through the first few days and really enjoyed ourselves. The thing about this guest house is the careful way everything has been thought about and done. As other reviewers have obviously mentioned, Concy's breakfasts are amazing - the best food we had in Sri Lanka - really wonderful. the afternoon tea and cake is pretty good too! Thanks for your help booking trips etc and making us (and all your guests) feel so at home and relaxed,

Room Tip: ll rooms spacious and very clean and well-equipped.

We stayed 3 nights here and loved it. It is so relaxed and Concy's breakfasts were the best we had on our travels in Sri Lanka. Our room was comfy and clean and had wifi. There are nice places for dinner close by and the beach is only a few feet from the guesthouse.

I would not hesitate to recommend this guesthouse for anyone looking for a place to stay in Tangalle.
