stayed here for christmas 2010, thought that it would be a nice family place to stay for christmas. the family are very pleasant but the room was not that clean, could really do with a lick of paint and none of the doors closed properly! it was a bit fawlty towers. the first night we ate there we got a full fish, which we discovered was a frozen fish, even though we were so near the sea. The outside was cooked but most of the inside was still frozen. it had taken so long to arrive that we just ate the outside bits and decided not to eat there again. we got all our laundry done there and many of our clothes came back stained, with what we think must be rust from wherever they were hung?! we had to throw some of them away. we asked them if there was a church for christmas mass, they told us there was one in matara, 20min away,at 6pm. we went all the way there in a monsoon storm to find it was actually at midnight! why didn't they just tell us they didn't know?! the problem is they really don't listen to complaints, they are oblivious! we saw a few people complaining and they were pretty much ignored, but not in a malicious way. so we decided not to bother complaining. they are sweet people but we would highly recommend NOT staying here!!
