Terrible experience for me. The rooms are small and cost 1500 without bathroom. 20 m down the road I got a wonderful room with bathroom for 1000 RS. The place was not as clean as well. I can t recommend to go there.

Planned to stay for 3 nights (2000 per night) but left after one (2500). We were the only ones staying, the room was basic and very tired. The whole guest house needs to be updated, and we found the staff to be unhelpful. The lady working there was unfriendly, and sat by the desk in only a towel which was...

Room was cheap and ok, cockroach in the room. The staff showed no interest at all. They even put a service charge on the agreed price for the room. We didn't try the restaurant. Location is excellent!

The room was okay and affordable if you get a good rate. But they charge different prices for rooms with the some quality. We never had the feeling to be welcomed at this place. And the owners try to get your money wherever they can. A roti for breakfast took 1,5 hours so we definitely can't recommend the restaurant. You...

We stayed two nights here, but turned out to be the worst stay of our trip yet. We agreed a room price on arrival after a quick look and were happy with our basic room. It then turned out that our sheet was dirty, so we got the linen changed. We also had to ask for towels and top sheets...then...

We had a really nice stay here, Pritty was very helpful and helped us to get around and see more of the beautiful Tangalle region and especially the animals. :) Highly recommend this place, plus some of the staff speak German. The room was nice and clean, with a fan, mosquito net and attached bathroom.

Visited this restaurant with a group of friends all desperate for fresh seafood. Val found meals delicious and great value for money. Recommend butterfish or jumbo prawns if they have it as catch of the day. Thai red prawn curry was fab. Tables on the beach which was a great atmosphere. Would definitely go back

We only spent one night at KingFisher, but it was really great! The rooms are simple, but very clean! The owner and her sister are very (!) kind and helpful. This is a place we will definitely visit again!
