We stayed at Ocean View for 2 nights before our flight home. It is very near the beach and lots of restaurants to choose from. The staff were so helpful and we really enjoyed our stay. We would definately recommend it to our friends. Thanks to all at Ocean View!!

"Best service you get in Sri Lanka."

In my experience, Mr. Thamel (Or Mr. Mark as we know him), runs a very pleasant establishment which is of excellent value.

It has a good range of rooms to cater for most budgets, tastes and requirements.

His ‘Airport Limo’ service utilises a clean, smart and safe estate car (or station wagon), having plenty of room for luggage.

However what marks out ‘Ocean View’ most, in my mind, is that it possesses a delicate balance of service that I’ve seldom found in Sri Lanka.

Generally the Sri Lankan people are friendly and helpful. Sometimes this can manifest itself to the extent that this ‘helpfulness’ is far too ‘in your face’ for the average ‘western’ taste.

Mr. Mark and his helpful staff are very relaxed and friendly, however they are never ‘in your face’.
In my experience they do, however, possess an uncanny knack of knowing just when to be of assistance.

Many thanks for some very relaxing and hassle free stays !
I hope to visit again some day.
