Top qualty boutique hotel with great staff. Great food especially the breakfast and you must have the Sri Lankan ommelate. Stayed in the Grand Suite which it was. it's a place that you don't want to leave and we absolutely loved Stewie the 'guard' dog.

Relaxing - A home from home
We had a wonderful stay here as part of our honeymoon. The staff were very attentive and put on a wonderful, 5 course meal for Christmas day. The hotel grounds are very relaxing and the rooms are spotlessly clean. They will help to arrange any excursions you wish to take and help to make sure you have a relaxing, enjoyable stay.

Sergeant House Paradise
Stayed 6 nights in October 2018 in poolside pavilion, wonderful accommodation, very comfortable and quiet, wish I had stayed longer. Access to eastern end of Unawatuna beach less than 20m across the road. Staff were excellent, polite and attentive without being overbearing. Would stay here again without any hesitation if I ever return to Sri Lanka.

Fantastic Hotel
My family and I stayed here for 2 nights and they loved this hotel. Short 5 min walk to Ahungalla Beach. ~ 15 min tuk tuk ride to Galle Fort. ~ 10 min tuk tuk ride to a sea turtle hatchery. We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa and my kids (age 10, 9, 7 and 5) loved the pool and watching the monkeys jump by through the trees overhead. The food was great and the staff was super helpful and friendly.

Highly recommended
Amazing place. My only critique is that I wasn't given an orientation on arrival so the second night I wanted to order dinner (at 8 PM), I was told it was not possible. Apparently you need to put your dinner order in by 4pm to eat. They made me some toasties, which were actually quite good. My only other suggestion is to get more airflow into the gym -- I used it only once, but after 30 minutes you feel like you are in a sauna. Other than that, this place is great, the owner is amazing and the ambiance of the B&B is perfect for relaxing.
