Stayed for three nights. The house is old and located on the beach. Had breakfast and dinner there and it was very good. They do not have a restaurant in the house, but getting food from a nearby restaurant. Realy good value and if I go back to Trincomalle again I stay same place. Thank you Mr Khadira for making my stay so nice.

Uncle K was just the loveliest host. Brilliant breakfast and all the staff treated us like family. They even ordered takeaway food for us when needed. Yes the building is very old, but they maintain very high cleaning standards. Bedding and room cleaning is done whenever you request. The beach is great and reasonably clean (you can'y escape plastic in Asia). We even borrowed their body board for free. We've already booked our next visit!

We didn't stay here but stayed for 6 days in the airbnb next door. Mr Kahdira's place is right on the beach and he is a friendly, helpful, welcoming man. The people we met on the beach who stayed there were alll happy with it. We want to write to thank Mr Khadira for being so welcoming of us, even though we spent no money with him. Trinco is a great place to chill out for a few days and Sri Lanka is a beautiful country and well worth visiting.

Like many of the other reviewers on Trip Advisor, I was blown away by the hospitality of Kadira and Moses. They attended to our every need and fed us amazing food every morning. The absentee owner owes them a great debt of gratitude; it would be hard to imagine Dyke Rest's popularity without their care and detail. The most convenient thing for me was the proximity of Dyke Rest to Epic Ocean Adventures. Every morning, after Moses cooked me a fresh breakfast, I walked out from the hotel to the beach and walked for two minutes to the dive center. Since I was in Trincomalee especially for the world class diving in Dutch Bay, this worked out perfectly for me. Nothing could have been more convenient. I was able to clean and dry all of diving gear at Dyke Rest without any issue. My wife and I felt very safe and welcome. If you're diving in Trinco, this is probably your best option!

This is one of the best rest houses situated near the bay in Trincomalee. Mr. Kadira is undoubtedly the most friendliest house manager I have ever seen in my entire life. The food is super good and the atmosphere is simply breathtaking. Actually this is my second time visiting the place and I'm planning to come again in June with my friends. See you soon.

Thank you for your hospitality, especially the flexibility to change rooms to the upper floor. We truelly enjoyed our week on the balcony. One step from the beach. One step from the city. Location could not be better. We stayed two adults and two (teenage) kids and we occupied both of the upper floor rooms. We enjoyed the beach, snorkling trips to Pigeon Islands, bluewhale spotting and exploring Trincomalee. Keep up up your good work Mister K and team!

The building is very old and not fit for purpose, no windows although they have tried to upgrade with new flooring, air-conditioning and clean bedding. When you have a shower the whole bathroom gets wet and not pleasant for the next person to use the bathroom. Breakfast was cold and not appetizing. The staff are trying their best but their efforts are limited.

The worst hotel/place to stay ever. Amazing that people can give positive reviews about this. Rooms without windows. No private bathrooms. Bad maintenance and rubish everywhere. The only positive is, it is right to the beach and the manager is doing his best. But conditions are terrible. Woest place of Sri Lanka.
