Food was very good. Ignore the menu and just ask for rice and curry or Sri Lankan breakfast, or get whatever the owner suggests. Room was very clean and comfortable. Perfect for sleeping 26 hours after the long ride from the US West coast. Net access was fine.

The owners were quite friendly but there was no desk or clearly stated way to contact them and one is reluctant to contact them "after hours" which seems quite early in the evening. So accessing water or information could be a bit challenging. However, once we found each other, the service was very friendly and very helpful.


Very nice place to stay! Excellent view and very good room for this money. Staff is also excellent!


the owners were superfriendly and very helpful with everything! we really enjoyed our stay!


Lovely place to stay!

Very kind gracious people.


We stayed in this hotel during the perahera festival. the owners were very kind and helpful, gave us good tips and advices. the room is specious and clean, with all the required amenities. it is not close to the city center, about 20 minutes of nice walk by the lake.

The owners are very nice and give lots of great advice. Also the food in the restaurant that I had daily was great!! Loved the views from the restaurant as well.


Great stay, very friendly and helpful owner and staff! Nice view from restaurant. Location is a bit out of the centre but it takes only 5-10 minuten by tuktuk (250Rs). Definitely recommend this place.
