I must be getting old and crotchety.
I read the other reviews before writing mine and I have to agree that the owner of this guest house was a really plleasant person but as a hotel/guset house the place offered a basic room and nothing more. Ok the beach is only two minutes away but there are lots of others with the same claim.
The room was down at heel, clean, bare, basic, without telly, the aircon didn't work, things were taped up to stop them falling apart but I slept well in the strangely high from the floor four poster bed with mosquito netting fitted and a big noisy ceilimng fan overhead.
We were with some travel firm and their offer was half board so the restaurant prepared us some food. I don't think they get a lot of customers. We were asked to choose our meal a couple of hours beforehand presumably so they could buy all the things we needed. When we sat down to eat the chap produced most of the food together. So the tea, which we'd thought of as the after dinner drink, came before the ginger beer and pepsi whilst the sweet pancakes and the curd and trickel came at the same time as the noodles and soup. Bizarre presentation but the food tasted pretty good. My partner had abandoned the dinner table by the time my main course turned up but it was one of the most memorable meals I ate whilst I was in Sri Lanka.
