We stayed for two nights in the suite room. The room was spacious, elegantly furnished and decorated. I especially liked the many and large windows. Good fans and AC. The bathroom however is really small. Everything gets wet when you shower as the shower is 20 cm from the toilet. The kithenette is ok for making coffee or tea.
You also get access to a lovely garden and a lounge area inside. Unless you attract every insect ever alive, like I do, both these areas can be very nice to relax in. Wi-fi is also only accessable in the lounge.
The host and her family are friendly and very pleasent. She had lot of good advice for both sightseeing and dining.
The location is a bit bit from the center (Colombo 5), but there was always a tuk-tuk waiting on the corner. Make sure you buy your snacks or drinks before you head home though, as this is a residentcial area and not many stores etc.
Highly recommended (if you can live without a pool and wi-fi in the room).
