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.

we arrived at the octopus garden thinking of staying 2 or 3 nights, well we ended up staying for 11 nights!!! i think this alone already sums everything up, this place from the owners (uk background) konsi aka gertrud and also the dogs are just fantastic, don't look any further when arriving in Tengalle. The traditional sri lankan breakfasts by konsi are straight from heaven and every day different. Rooms are also being cleaned daily and the whole place is kept very tidy with a lot of attention towards details.

the beach right in front of the octopus garden is nice, but only a 10 minute tuktuk ride away u find a lonely stretch of white sand, quiet, no street, no buses, no tuktuks and hardly any other people to share it with, just ask the driver to take you to lonely beach, 200 rupies will cover it.

steve the english owner and his wife are a great source for sri lankan insight, history, politics and obviously information about the area, places to eat and and and...., i really enjoyed chatting with them while smoking a few gold leaf cigarettes :-)
