If looking for Sri Lankan hospitality this place cannot be faulted in that respect. The staff will certainly make you feel at home.
This is a charming B&B with not more than 6 rooms, swimming pool in the back garden and they also serve food there. But if you want alcohol they will take you down the road with a tuk tuk so you can buy it and BYO.
The rooms are spacious with a very nice toilet. We got the Rasberry Dreams Room. The location is in a nice suburban area where there are other hotels. It is not in the middle of the city or by the lake. So it is a great place if you have a driver or are happy to catch a tuk tuk to places of interest.
We have to make a mention to the food they cooked for us on our first night there. They were happy to prepare an improvised meal of string, plain and egg hoppers with curry that wasn't even in the menu. They did this for us as we said we wanted something Sri Lankan. It was delicious, fresh and one of the best we've had!
I would recommend this place if you like B&Bs and very personalized attention. If you like extreme privacy and not to be noticed or not engaging with the hotel staff then this wouldn't be ideal for you.
It was a nice experience for us and appreciated their kindness.
