The Old Clove House is set in a big lawned garden with a swimming pool. The house has all the space and bathrooms we needed and is beautifully decorated. It feels clean, light and airy. The house manager and his staff are what made our holiday relaxing. Until our stay at the Old Clove House I thought that a relaxing holiday with a two and a four year old was impossible but during our stay we read books, floated about in the pool, went to the beach every day and relaxed in the afternoons and evenings. The children were happy and settled straight away. The team of staff were friendly, helpful, efficient and organised. No request was too much. The house ran like clockwork even with four small children around. The chef was excellent and all the food was delicious. We would love to stay there again in the future.

We had booked to stay at the Old Clove House over the Christmas and New Year period, but we were so happy there we extended our stay. It was the perfect place for us to base ourselves with our young children (aged 2 and 4), plus visiting family and friends. While only 3 bedrooms, all are very spacious and offer flexible accommodation to allow for additional guests to stay. It has a huge garden, which is very safe for the children, and comes complete with visiting monkeys. The staff were all exceptionally professional, helpful and very lovely with our children and other young guests - even when we caused a lot of mess. The food was excellent throughout the stay and again they were very accommodating in catering for our fussy eaters. The location is great too - very quiet and private yet a two minute tuk-tuk ride to the most child friendly beach and beach bar. All in all an excellent house - and we have stayed at many in Sri Lanka - and one of our best holidays.

My Husband, children, and grandchildren have just spent a fabulous holiday at Clove House, Sri Lanka, where everything from beginning to end was top quality. The service provided at the house was first rate, and the food was nothing short of excellent so much so that we did not bother eating out as we were so happy with what was served at the house. Everyone concerned couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to stay there.
