Welcoming guesthouse with great staff. Brian the manager and Maldiga the cook made every effort to look after us. My wife and I stayed in one of the separate cottages, we chose ac because we are traveling with our 20 month old daughter and it helps her to sleep. No baby cots like many places in Sri Lanka but Brian gave us loads of cushions and An extra bed and she slept very well. All rooms were clean and comfortable and the grounds of the guesthouse are very rural, if a little dry at this time of year. An hour after we arrived Brian and a friend showed us a bull elephant that was exploring the next door garden, a real experience for all of us. We stayed 2 nights and went on an elephant ride around harabana lake - this was mainly for our daughter's benefit and she then of course almost ignored the experience! It was not something I would recommend, overpriced and doesn't really feel like something particularly special. However the safari to minneriya national park was amazing and worth every penny. As with everything, Brian arranged it for us and was a trustworthy and caring organizer and really nice to talk to! The food was excellent and we Ate a different traditional dish at each meal, the egg hoppers were something I will never forget, great breakfasts and Brian bought curd and yoghurt and helped feed our daughter. Location is great for the surrounding attractions but you'd have to take a tuck tuck to get to town really(if you have a baby to carry!)
