We are a family of 4 (with 2 teenagers) and stayed for 2 nights at George's riverside home. We had the 2 rooms with the balconies overlooking the river and paid US$50 (+10% s/c) per room per night on a H/B basis. The rooms were fairly spacious, with simple and comfortable furnishings and had very efficient fans. There were no mosquito nets provided but the plug-in repellents seemed to have worked fine. The ensuite bathrooms were clean and had hot water. As it is a family home, it wasn't really convenient to sit in their living room to relax so we were very glad to be able to sit out on the balcony in the evening for a coffee after dinner. The free wifi was also very welcomed.
We can say that after travelling around Sri Lanka for 11 days, George's wife's cooking is really the best! The breakfasts and dinners we had were simply delicious and as we were in Kandy in Days 2 and 3, it set the bar very high for the rest of our holiday.
We weren't bothered with the out of town location as we had our own van and driver (arranged by George's Michelle Tours) but can see that the location may be a little inconvenient for independent travellers. Also, as already mentioned by other reviewers, the railway line runs parallel just on the other side of the river so there is a certain amount of noise from that but we didn't really notice it that much as the trains aren't that frequent.
All in all, we enjoyed our 2 nights stay there and in the particular, the food!
