I stayed for more than a month in this lovely place, the family is very helpful and they are always present. You will recieve tea or coffee at any time. The house is very clean and the breakfast very varied. It's less than 1min walking to the beach and 3min walking to the most bars. I recommend this place.

Owner and his wife were charming and helpful and breakfasts very good and fresh. He took us to the airport, north of Colombo at 11pm at night which proved very helpful for...

We found the Angel rest very clean and comfortable and the owner was very friendly and helpful. We used him to take us to the airport and he allowed us to stay in the room until we left. Would recommend.

I stayed at Angel Rest for 2 days. Owners Upul, Ramya and their children were very hospitable, welcoming me into their home. It was such a great experience being able to stay with a Sri Lankan family. I stayed in a room with a balcony which was great as it has a view of the trees & the beautiful garden....

We had booked into this property for one night through Booking .Com. When we arrived we were told that WE had a problem and that there was no room and that we would have to find alternative accommodation. There was no explanation or apology and no offer of any alternative to try. Based on our experience I would not recommend...

Upul S, Owner at Angel Rest House, responded to this review

In a fact ,based on how i faced the situation,it is the guests who were rude! When i told that there is no available room the guests simply got back into their taxi without uttering a single word about wanting an alternative or complaining about the incident.Although there was a little problem with us,we could have found out an alternative...

The hostess was extremely grumpy and rude. There was no water in the bathroom as it had been switched off for the evening as too expensive to run. The bedroom and bathroom were full of mosquitos, but the resident gecko was hungry - but he clearly didnt like cockroaches! Can't comment on the breakfast. Despite asking for a pack-up breakfast...

I enjoyed my two days at the angel rest. Lovely people who are running the hotel. Good service, reasonable prices. Room was large and clean! Perfect, if you want to stay in the village. The owner, Ameen and his wife are very helpful and friendly.

We already slept one night in an other hostel of Kalpitiya when we found the Angel Rest (or when the Angel Rest found us :-)) We went for a diner in the hostel and were overwhelmed with the jammy food, great clean rooms, welcoming family and great staff. We moved and had two good nights at the ho(s)tel. The owner,...
