Great short term stay solution, comfy rooms, great food and great hosts. Family is very nice and Mrs. is a great cook. They have a little restaurant in the house and that was the best food I have eaten in Sri Lanka! Everything was so great that we stayed one noght more! Didn't wanna leave at all.

This place made us feel like home. We has such a warm feeling of this place, this family.
A real smile, a good service, everything can be arranged for you. Every question as an answer.
We feel like leaving friends.
Also Sigiriya can be visited in half an hour by tuktuk, and you can walk to the Golden temple and rock temple.
We will come back.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013 via mobile

Being that many of the places in the lonely planet book were a bit pricey we decided to check out this option. We had one of the 1,500 Rs per night rooms. The bed and pillows may have been a bit hard, but the fan was good and the hot water was nice after a hike up Sigiriya. The dinner of rice and curry was good and so was the breakfast. Maybe a bit overpriced for the breakfast. It was an easy walk to the entrance of the cave temples. Defineately a good place to stay if you are not concerned about being in the centre of town. It's not like there is much to do there anyways as most people come for the rock cave and Sigiriya.

though we just spent one night there, i found the room is unbelievably valuable!
unfortunately, for us, backpackers, we didnt try the home-cooking dishes.
i recommend the cute white building with 4 rooms. a little expensive than other bunglow rooms, but have a better view.
great location also!

Room Tip: the cute white building is good!!!

Being right now here, so excellent to comment. The location is great as its just close to the temple and to everything. You can just jump off the bus when you see the golden buda and go walking.
The rooms are very clean and there's warm water, they are painting the building right now. I'm in one of the upper level rooms for 2200 R a night which is very good and they just made me breakfast when I arrived.
Service is excellent and the owners very nice and helpful. Great place.

We stayed 2 night in new rooms which were really clean and comfortable, meals were fine, family was helpful. We had nice stay here, but any special experience. Prices were little bit higher than I would expect.
