This was a great experience. A simple yet charming little guest house at the top of the hill. Run by a lovely family, we were blown away by the delicious home made meal! There is only one room here, and you get the top of the house with its independent access and own living room. If you are stopping the...

We couldn't resist a second visit, and we enjoyed every minute especially Graces fantastic cooking. She even took us into town to the local farmers market to see all the different vegetables ( some of which we have never seen before) which we would be eating that night. The house hadn't changed at all. What we hadn't bargained for was...

It was two of us, and we were lucky enough to be the first to try Grace and Romeni's cooking class. Not only have we discovered their secret and exquisite Sri Lankan recipes (by far the best food we had the entire trip!), we also had the best time chatting and getting to know them as they're so kind. A...

The room is OK but it is one of the most expensive room of our trip (11500 Rs) and the less comfortable and more simple. The room is large with a mezzanine. The phonic isolation is poor and as the room is in the house of the guest, you hear noises you would not like to. The thermic isolation is...

We had a lovely stay. I would highly recommend staying there if you're going to take the time to get to know the host family. We had a wonderful dinner with them which was a highlight of our trip to Sri Lanka!

We stayed at sincere wilderness only for a night, but it was indeed a wonderful stay. We were travelling with 2 small kids and Romeni was especially attentive to all our requirements. The room was cosy and comfortable . Grace made some incredible Sri Lankan food for dinner and next day morning breakfast. Overall, highly recommended stay!

This place was just lovely. We did not have a warmer welcome anywhere else on our trip than the one we received when we met Romeni, Grace and Lal. It was like visiting old friends or family. We were travelling independently on our trip without a driver/car, transfers were arranged when we need them. Our journey to Nuwara Eliya was...

We realy loved the stay in this place. We were greeted with much simpathy and afection. The food was excelent, very well cooked, and not very spicy, as we have asked. They also organized a 2 day tour, with visit to horton plains, lipton's seat, little adams peak, tea factory, and then have taken us to Kandy with a stop...
