We had an amazing stay at Black beauty. It was the best accomodation we had at that affordable price on the south coast of sri lanka. the place is not on the beach but 2 mn walk form it and you have the quietness of not being on it so in fact it's really an advantage.

Really friendly staff, excellent food and really friendly surroundings. Small guesthouse but that makes it way better. Nice swimmingpool and 2 minutes walking to the beach. They arranged a day tour for us to Yala nature park and helped us get back to Galle to catch the train. Make sure you try their curry, it is wonderful!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Many of our guesrs ask us why we chose such an unusual name for a Guest House in Sri Lanka. I read and enjoyed the book as a child ans was struck by the genuine character of Black Beauty. Here was a role model to be followed through life. He was well behaved, honest and thoughtful, always doing the best he could in every situation, wonderful skills we try to instill in our staff. The management chooses new team members with careful consideration and train them to reflect these characteristics. Our aim, over the last 20 years has been to provide the best service for our guests and through gentle and caring ways follow the example of Black Beauty. ... more   less
