Absolutely a stunning place. Beautiful house, nice and large rooms, lovely owners, best breakfast ever. So happy we decided to visit this place for 2 days to relax. If you're traveling from Colombo to Kandy, get of the road near Gampola and have a break for a couple of days at this B&B. Best B&B we have ever been, worldwide!...
