Score from 184 reviews Good 7.9/10
Good value for money with lovely, helpful staff. The hotel is right on the beach (and it is on the part of Unawattuna beach that hasn't washed away so there is lots of sand). Good restaurant with tasty seafood. Breakfast was fine if repetitive. Room we had was a penthouse one on the top floor. It had a huge balcony overlooking the sea all very clean and all very nice Absolutely no complaints about this hotel would return without hesitation
Nothing to mention here. Just be aware if you book the penthouse it is a duplex with a bed downstairs and another upstairs - the stairs to the upstairs room are very steep and it wouldn;t be suitable for someone who wasn't very nimble on their feet (or anyone after a couple of drinks!)
The location is almost unbeatable with a great selection of bars and resturants only meters away.
We loved our entire stay at the Beach house except for one issue with an overflowing geyser. It would overflow at night and after informing management they assured us it had been fixed. To our dismay we had to deal with another night of an overflowing geyser that poured onto our balcony throughout the early hours of the morning. On discussing the Chinese water torture he next morning, management were apologetic but not interested in offering any discount for the room that made sleep impossible. After a 20 minute debate they eventually agreed to a 10% discount. We thought the matter was handled very badly from their side.
We loved the friendly staff! We enjoyed our meals! Our room was very nice! We would go back in a heartbeat! We had a wonderful time!
Rooms have been nicely renovated.
The location of the hotel and the position of our room. We had a ground floor room that was quite noisy.
Location, Overall pretty nice.
A bit inexperienced staff, not all serviceminded
Kind staff Nice beach
Cockroaches in the room Overpriced
good location, nice rooms and bathroom
the room smelled a lot, no manager at night, so when we had to check out late evening, due to emergency, we had some trouble. But the manager eventually came and checked us out, but he did ask too many questions and made us feel bad for the rush.
Excellent location on the beach, attentive staff and great restaurant. Will defiantly be returning!!
The Thaprobane Beach House was a perfect choice for our last beach days during our Sri Lanka holiday! The location is great, it is at the beach front more or less in the middle of the Unawatuna bay and the beach and water is perfect for swimming there. The staff was very friendly and attentive and took care of any request we might have (tips on excursions, information about the surroundings, arranging of transport, breakfast preferences, beach towels and even a change of room). And our 20 month old toddler made many new friends... Breakfast was very good with a choice for almost every taste, you could even get Sri Lankan breakfast if you pre-ordered during dinner. Try it out if you like savoury and spicy breakfast! Maybe the biggest plus is the great beach restaurant where we ended up having dinner 4 nights in a row (usually not our habit!) and we could see there were plenty non-hotel eaters around even though competition on the beach is not far away. They have a fresh seafood offer on display in addition to a complete a la carte menu. The room was nicely furnished and cleaned several times a day (at least we got this impression). We would definitely choose this hotel again if we ever come back to Unawatuna! If you want something bigger and a bit more isolated from the town “center”, there is a sister hotel with a pool and nice rock seaview about 10 minutes walk away (the pool can be used by Beach House guests too but we did not bother with the wonderful beach right there…
Due to the wooden doors and windows rooms towards the street may get noisy in the evenings whenever tuk-tuks or motorbikes pass by. But we were not bothered by this and after 23:00 it was usually very quiet. The beachfront ground floor rooms might have a little less privacy than the others on the 1st or 2nd floor as they are directly next to the restaurant - but of course you’ll have the shortest distance to the beach during daytime. :-) There is no ATM in Unawatuna, so make sure to bring your cash when you arrive or to take the opportunity for a trip to Galle Fort to refill…
Great location, nice hustle and bustle in the street. Staff really accomadating and nice.
They did screw me on the conversion of currency telling.
Stayed for 2 nights last week. We loved Unawatuna and the location of this hotel is great. Had a lovely dinner in the restaurant sitting on the beach under the stars and all the staff were very friendly. You can walk 5 minutes up the road and use the pool and private beach at their other property (Thaproban Pavilion Resort ) which is a big plus as the Beach house has no pool and the beach can get rather busy. The pool at the other property was lovely and the staff again were great!
We had room number 9 at the top of the hotel. To be honest we felt the room was really below standard for the money we paid compared to the other places we stayed during out trip. It seemed like a hostel room. The door to the room wasn't very secure either and could have been easily kicked open without a key so we always used one of the safe boxes they had downstairs.
Loved the location right on the beach.
Interior was dated and in need of refurbishment, No insect net on any shuttered windows which meant you had to be closed and dark. Breakfast was average, waitng staff were very good though.
Location is perfect just near the sea. Staff is very friendly , specially the lady at the desk. We also like breakfast. You can chose from fruits, diff eggs, porridge etc. Restaurant is good with nice seafood. It's so romantic to sit just 3m away from the ocean and enjoy food , stars and sound of waves.
We would not recommend room #1 and 2 for those who looks for quite place and privacy.
A really good location and great staff and excellent food.
close to the beach
The location, right on the beach.
The noise from the busy road alongside the room we were allotted despite requesting a quiet room away from the street.
Everything, loved this hotel.
The most wonderful beach house on a gorgeous beach! Great food and friendly staff. I had the most wonderful week there.
Friendly staff, ready to help you with everything.
As a Westerner you are regarded as a walking ATM- machine so be aware.
The location was literally on the beach and my daughter loved walking to the beach for a swim. The restaurant food was quite good. The staff were quite helpful and pleasant.
The condition of the rooms were not too great for the money paid.
The hotel is nice and in good location, just on the ocean side. Staff is extremely nice and positive. Very tasty food in restaurant. Отель сам по себе неплохой. За такие деньги хорошая трешка. Завтрак хоть и вкусный, но немного однообразный. Персонал милый и отзывчивый, всегда помогают решить возникающие вопросы. Массаж не пробовали, ходили в другое место. Но, думаю, что Шри Ланка славится своим аюверда спа.
The only minus and reason why we changed this hotel on another was noise from restaurant, which is just down under the rooms location. Our room (nr7) was exectly over restaurant, and because of noise we couldn't sleep. Towels in bathroom can be more fresh. Причина, по которой мы поменяли этот отель на другой из этой же компании, это шум из ресторана. Наша комната находилась сразу над ним, поэтому по вечерам нам было слышно все, что там происходит. А по утрам мы просыпались из-за завтрака, который начинается с 7.30. В любом случае плюсов больше, чем минусов. Рекомендуем!
Location and staff in general very good
We went on a safari and kept the room for the nights whilst away and one of the staff moved our room without our knowledge including all our belongings.
The staffs are very friendly. I was travelling alone but thanks to them, I didn't feel isolated at all. The location is great. Just in front of the gusethouse, there is the beautiful beach.
Wi-Fi should be able to used in the rooms.
a bit far from train/bus station
A lovely hotel on the beach. Friendly staff. Clean and lovely food. A real treat to stay if you can get a room.
Room 1 was on the ground floor and lacked privacy. A lovely room but See through blinds. Not black out. Standard room 14 was better.
