Chaminda , the host, kindly picked us up from the train station and took us to their house which we may not have found otherwise. It was only a 5 minute drive from the centre but you feel miles away as the house is set in the hills and surrounded by lush trees. The rooms were spotless and Chaminda and his wife couldn't have been more welcoming. The breakfast was more like a banquet than a breakfast. Not to be missed!! If you want to meet the lovely real people of Sri Lanka, stay at Cottage 99!
