This is a lovely place tucked away in the forest run by a very friendly family, with the mum doing the cooking & most of the hosting. The rooms are very basic - we had a noisy fan on the ceiling & a very tired bathroom. The tap on the basin barely supplied any water whatsoever & there were always...

Small guesthouse run by Mrs pakora and helpful son. Only three rooms available so if you have the chance to book don't think just do it. The food was incredible with authentic Sri Lanka curry. The owner is vegetarian but prepared us a chicken curry. The meal was massive so much so that myself and my partner couldn't finish it...

We had the middle room for one night and it was quite damp and musty. Everything else about this guesthouse is fantastic, though. Breakfast was stellar, one of the best we had in Sri Lanka. Every time we returned from sightseeing the owner made a fresh pot of tea. She and her husband were helpful and welcoming. The wifi worked...

We had a great stay here! Rooms are basic, but with everything you need. What makes this place so special is the hospitality, friendliness and smileys of the owners, that make you feel so welcome. And the food, oh my, the food! Amazing! We celebrated Christmas Eve here with delicious rice & curry! Oh, and a tip: don't pay 30$...

Malika the owner was so far one of the best host for us in Sri Lanka. She is helpful, friendly, offers you advice about prices and transportation options. She is also an amazing chef. The house is in a forest with wildlife and without noise.

I arrived unannounced around 7:30 pm and a very friendly lady welcomed me. For 25 USD I didn't go into discussion to lower the price. The friendly lady of the house prepared an excellent local meal for me with a lot of love and friendliness. When I asked for a Lion Beer - which they don't have - they got...

This guesthouse was one of our favorites during our travelling in Sri Lanka. Palitha is a very friendly welcoming person and can Cook great food. One day she showed us her garden telling us about the plants. Then we tasted some wild fruit. The prices are good and it's a nice place in the forest. Beautiful butterflies every day and...
