Free bike hire, excellent cheap food next door, spacious room and the nicest host you could ever imagine. He is so kind - wrote down bus journey descriptions for us, gave great tips and let us shower in the afternoon after a long cycle even though we had checked out already! He has made my travels in Sri Lanka so far a very positive experience! Would definitely stay here again, thoroughly recommend it.

We stayed 3 nights at Luxman guest house and really couldn’t fault it. Luxman is the most helpful, attentive and kind host - he runs the place himself and his hard work really pays off! Our breakfast every morning was delicious (one evening we accidentally bought a local fruit which we thought we could eat raw, turns out you have to boil it, so Luxman cooked it for us the next morning - evidence of how good of a host he is). The guesthouse itself is very well located, 5 minute walk from Kaduruwela bus stand - so if you get the bus make sure you get off there rather than Polonnaruwa. It is also located next to a family run restaurant called “my choice” which serves the tastiest curry and rice for only 120 rupees! Luxman made so much effort to help us, making us travel itinerary’s to do 2 day visits to the Polonnaruwa monuments and then to Sigiriya rock - giving us detailed lists of buses we could take. The free washing facility was dreamy and just what we needed as long distance travellers! Finally free access to motorbikes and unlimited tea and coffee is unheard of in other places but added such a great touch! Would highly recommending staying here - felt very homely. We can’t thank you enough for your hospitality Luxman, and your chickpeas that you made us for lunch to take on our journey to Negombo were so delicious that we are going to email you for the recipe! With warmest wishes, Ellie & Rosie

To be frank, I was very apprehensive to book this place mainly because I have never stayed in a hotel that is less than INR 1000. The reason I went with it is because this was the only one I could book on-line. This is a budget guest house, no doubt and but for Mr. Luxman, I would have rated this as just satisfactory. What made the place special is Mr. Luxman, the host. He took such good care of us, that have nothing to complain about. He helped with all or travel needs. Even after checking out, he kept calling to make sure we reached our onward destination correctly and on-time. He also prepared a wonderful and tasty breakfast for us. Pros: 1) The place is close to the city centre and it is a short walk to all eateries and shopping. 2) The place is dirt cheap. 3) There is a washing machine at disposal. 4) The rooms and bathrooms were clean. 5) WiFi had good connectivity and speed.

One year after our visit to Luxman Guest House, we are still remembering our big friend Luxman. He is AWESOME. No other word can describe him better. The most helpful and incredible person we found over our trip around Sri Lanka. I can say that Luxman Guest House offers free wifi, free washing machine, good location, good recomendations for local places... but I think that if you are reading this review, I only can recommend you to go ther and visit Luxman. He is, in general words, a good person. A very good one. You can trust everything he can help or offer you. Is like your mother in Sri Lanka. Luxman, if you read this opinion, I want to tell you that with my girlfriend we have to visit you again. Someday we will be again in your guest house. For sure. Thanks for your hospitality my friend!!! Regards. Jorge.
