Tha staff was very helpful and the room pretty and clean. The bathroom was brand new and we could use the kitchen. I would definitely stay there again.


We stayed here twice during our trip to Sri Lanka. It's walking distance from Mt Lavinia beach but quite a way from the airport (2 hours in a tuk tuk, over and hour and a half by taxi). The one staff member we met was lovely and they allowed us to store our extra bags with them whilst we travelled. When we came back one bag was torn (apparently an accident whilst being moved) and they had tried to sew it up.


The rooms were just like in the hotels, air conditioned and I was really pleased with their security (I was given three keys for the main gate, common room and then our room). There were also a lot of info booklets on Sri Lanka and Colombo in the common room and a satellite television.


Enjoyed the stay, rooms are tidy and clean, getting there can be a problem as no sign post to direct the first time traveler from the Dehiwala station road, the internet facilities were out of order, otherwise no complains.
