We stayed 3 nights here towards the end of our journey around Sri Lanka. Initially we were disappointed that our booking had been altered and we didn't have the room we had specified but instead were put in a quirky room in the old house. It's a beautiful old building full of antique furniture but we had no window, other than one opening onto another room, electric lighting was very poor and our bathroom was down a passage. However, the staff were great, always smiling, the night watchman was an absolute gem, the location ideal, and the garden and veranda quiet and serene, Simone was charming and helpful with local information Wifi a bit hit and miss and we felt it is on the expensive side compared to all the other places (many of them fabulous) where we had stayed. Would recommend if you like something a little bit different, would return if ever in that part of Sri Lanka again.
