On the beach is agresif stuff working
Some of Stuff very friendly ,some of them really agresif an unfriendly
I only stayed for one night, but was pleasantly surprised with the hotel. The friendly staff really helped me settle into my Sri Lankan holiday. It is right on the beach and very central to everything in Unawatuna. I went with a few friends and, for various reasons, we ended up staying at different hotels. Most were staying at more expensive hotels, but I definitely thought I got the better deal at Thaprobane Beach House.
Nothing to criticise
The hotel is right on the beach, at the nicer end of Unawatuna. The staff are very attentive and extremely welcoming - huge thank you to Nuwani who made our stay extra special. Lovely rooms and huge breakfast
Absolutely none. Perfect hotel.
Nuwani in reception was extremely kind and attentive to our needs throughout our stay, both during and after. She took care of us better than anyone ever has at a resort and we can't recommend her enough.
Some handtowels on rail near basin would be good
location and staff
Unfortunately one of the other hotels has a disco on a Saturday nights and this goes on to 6 in the morning and is very loud. This is not the fault of the Thrapobane Beach House but can be a problem - but as I say it is just once a week.
Was one our favourite hotels on our holiday to Sri Lanka. The staff were so friendly and professional and there was always someone around to offer advice and help. The location was super, right on the best beach for swimming we came across. Our room didnt overlook the sea but still had its own little balcony and despite overlooking the road was very private and relatively quiet. The restaurant on the beach was lovely, with good food and fresh fish. There are however several other restaurants to choose from.
Needs renovation and watch out for taxi cost/fees from the hotel
Great location and friendly staff
Maybe a few more traditional Sri Lankan meals on the menu would have been good.
The location to the beach (on our back door step), the dining area inside and outside were excellent as were the menu choices. The friendly staff who always had a smile and were willing to help, especially the receptionist who went out of her way to always make sure you were happy and had everything you wanted.
The location is good if you prefer to be in the center. Very helpful reception staff.
Hotel is run down, mosquito net in our room had not been washed for months if not longer, no plug to washbasin, window in bathroom broken, door lock not very secure. Was served mouldy toast for breakfast one morning, only 4 plastic sunbeds with no cushions and 8 bean bags squashed together on the beach for the use of hotel guests. Food and drink was pricier than nearby good restaurants. A very unpleasant hotel to stay in
Bed was comfortable and cleaner to our room was very friendly.
Little bit noisy / bad sound insulation.
Staff and location was excellent, we enjoyed our stay in this lovely hotel.
Colonial style rooms, beach
1. Room 7 is right on the kitchen and is too noisy till midnight, full of the noise of staff chatting and the sound of kitchenware cleaning. 2. The location is far from Galle Fort, nearly 6km, and the beach is public and full of people. 3. They charged me for a bottle of water which should be free as any resort/guesthouse would provide to their inhouse guests. 4. The price I paid ($92) is too expensive given the poor condition they provided, and there are other choices in the neighborhood with much reasonable price. I do not understand that how they could have such high rating. I spent 8 nights in Sri Lanka and this is the worst.
Next to Indian Ocean. The sea food is very delicious. The breakfast is very good.
Hot water was intermittent, as was in fact running water - which may have been just when we were there, but staff didn't provide a very clear answer on what was going on (they were very friendly, but perhaps some more staff training would assist). Internet was OK - not great but adequate.
Looking at other hotels along this beach stretch, Thaprobane beach house looked the best run and the beat kept. Accommodations are definitely simple on the whole in the area, but we still found it relaxing. Great being right on the beach. Staff were very friendly.
The location on the beach is great and the staff is excellent
Internet was pretty slow but because we were on vacation, it didn't really bother us much.
Staff was incredibly kind, helpful and friendly. Restaurant was one of the best on the beach--delicious food and service. Great location, in central location right on beach. Bed was comfy. We loved everything about this hotel and would definitely recommend it!
Located on a busy road with constant horn beeping & the room was located above noisy reception & kitchen. Nice room doesn't make up for it being overpriced and getting no sleep.
Comfy bed and pillows
The staff were amazing and helped make the holiday, food and facilities were excellent
Only one complaint which was the smelly plumbing in room 102. Everything else perfect.
Really delightful, helpful staff, incredible location right on the beach, lovely rooms. Loved it and hope to return.
The total amount = booking costs + 20 or 25 % taxes. So the final price is more than planned. Bit noisy, I use special block for my ears in the evening.
Almost everything! Very helpful staff, very clean room for Sri-Lanka. Very good location - right on the beach. Good meal.
Noisy (Room #8 at the 1st floor close to the stairs) Floor and bathroom does not look clean Room without personality A bit expensive compared to the quality
Availability of the staff Unawatuna beach front location Good breakfast
Can be a little noisy in the middle of the night
smell of the room (very strong smell of sewer), only 3 beach umbrella for everybody, same breakfast everyday
