And we will be coming back more I think. Why? The guesthouse is clean, the rooms are spacious and clean too. Bathrooms are clean and up to date. The staff and owners are friendly and helpful. And the location is at the beach, so breakfast and dinner can be taken with "the feet in the sand". Galle Road is busy...

This place was just charming. The friendliest staff, clean, cosy rooms with mosquito nets and a big fan above the bed. I believe each room has its own table and chair outside and a personal washing line.... Welcomed with a yummy juice, then the food here was really good too, apart from visiting a highly recommended rotti shop down the...

This was our last stop after a 3 week venture around Sri Lanka and it couldn't have been a more perfect place to finish our trip. Incredibly professional, friendly and welcoming staff. Clean rooms and great value for money. Highly recommend and if we return to Sri Lanka we will be coming back to Neelas 👏👍

Nice place on crowded Narigama beach. There is cold bear available and relatively swift service. On the other hand the food is not even a sri lankan average. I had tried fried chicken rice and simply never came back.

For so many reasons this place is a standout. Nice rooms, great location, and remarkably kind and helpful staff. Our room was on the first floor, it had a small porch area that faced the walkway to the beach. Along the walkway is a lovingly tended to garden which feels like an oasis in an area now swarming with tourists....

We have been visiting Sri Lanka now for the last 6 years. Every time we come we spend all of our time at Neela's. It's such a well organised, friendly place with brilliant staff and outstanding food. We quite literally stay here for breakfast lunch and dinner. Some suggestions from the menu are: Avocado and prawn salad (the dressing is...

Got the non-aircon room for 2 nights because all the other rooms were taken. But even with no a/c, my room was very comfortable! It was clean and it had all the amenities needed. Also, the location of this place is excellent. Right at the beach. Plus, they have an excellent restaurant. The staff are the nicest people, and so...

A beautiful beach side hotel/guesthouse with fantastic staff. On arrival we discovered we had been upgraded to the beach view room which was a pleasant surprise. The room had a nice view with a great balcony. It was a great bed and a fantastic bathroom, probably the nicest stay in Sri Lanka. We also got breakfast included which was served...
