We stayed at The Other Corner for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was a great base for visits to Sigiriya, Dambulla and the surrounding area and is set in a beautiful and incredibly tranquil location. The food and service were terrific and the rooms lovely, albeit a bit dark. Our one criticism we had was that it seemed disproportionately expensive compared to everywhere else we stayed in Sri Lanka. Our bill for 2 nights' accommodation (B&B) for a family of 4 was US$500 + dinner etc. We were expecting to play just over US$400 for B&B accommodation which seemed pricey anyway but we hadn't read the small print (our fault) about tax and service of 23% being added on! This seemed incredibly expensive when we stayed in some lovely guest houses and homestays elsewhere in the country with pools, air con and fabulous food for US$60-70 a night! There's no question that this is a lovely place to stay though, but I guess it depends what your budget is as you can probably find better value elsewhere.
