Overall we cannot fault the service, collection from airport was good and efficient, although driving is hectic here and my partner suffered whiplash due to a near accident. The rooms are basic (very basic) but clean. Shower is horrendous either scalding hot or freezing cold. No Mosquito nets and given that they are right in front of a huge marsh area this is a problem. We were all bitten more on the 2 nights here than anywhere else and we stayed all over Sri Lanka. One other annoying point was being told my final bill was one amount but on producing a Visa card they arbitrarily added 4% to the bill without telling me and handed the stub to me to sign. Overall an average "in a bind" guesthouse - I would not recommend overall.
