This is a bed and breakfast in a beautiful house with a nice garden of an elderly couple. It is in a quiet residential neighborhood. It is a great place, if you like to stay with Sri Lankan family, it is not, if you prefer privacy. It is very difficult to find, even for taxi drivers. There are no nearby restaurants where you can just walk to and the place is far out of downtown and on the other side of town from the airport. The quality of the food is excellent and served in style at the dining table in the living room. You pay three times more than a local restaurant, but it is still cheap for Western standards. The couple is very friendly and helpful towards the guests, but I was disturbed by the authoritarian management style of the owners toward their only servant who has to work hard and long hours (Please tip him). Neither were they very transparent about the prices they charge for food and drinks unless you ask. We had to pay additional for the use of the air conditioning and the AC was blowing uncomfortable straight on our bed. In order to go to the bathroom we had to pass through the living room, which does not contribute to a feeling of privacy. I recommend the place, if you don't mind less privacy.
