Let's get the "ok" part out of the way: large room, a bathroom, nice location, lovely surroundings, vegetable garden around the house, some tips for trips from the owner. Now the actual experience: Haputale itself offers nothing, especially in terms of eating out (the only proper restaurant is in the Olimpus Hotel which is expensive) and we know of no... More

Wow... Haputale is a township in the sky. Built on a mountain ridge, there are clouds to the left and right of the roadway when you enter the town, which gives one a real taste of vertigo. I felt like I was in the sky. An eye popping outlook to behold; however there is not much else to see but... More

What we can say is that this place is interesting... and that's just to be kind. The owner was sort of welcoming, but not warm. The atmosphere at meal times is quiet to the point of discomfort, where you can hear every whisper around the room. Hot shower only works when the water pressure is low. Toilet when we arrived...

The friendly couple who run this guesthouse truly made us feel part of the family during our stay. Having had a disappointing meal in town the first evening, we were pleasantly surprised by a simple but generous breakfast at the guesthouse in the morning, where we were served endless amounts of toast and homemade jam. We decided that we would... More

The house is beautiful. On the hills of Haputale, peaceful and quiet place located less that 10 min walking distance from the city. The room is big, nice, light and clean.The food was delicious and the owners are lovely people. I recommend this place!!

We stayed for 2 nights and paid 2.000 RS per night in FEB 2014 for room without A/C. Nice and clean rooms. Good kitchen and friendly owner. No problem with anything. If you want reliable and friendly tuk-tuk driver, ask for Farouk. One of the best men thich I met in S.Lanka

The rooms are clean and have large windows and a good balcony. But- my room had a funky lock, the polished and slippery stairs are only lit with a switch on a very short timer so you have to negotiate them in the dark, the reception rooms feel deserted... Also, this is the only place I stayed where I was... More

Haputale is well worth a visit and the walk up Liptons Seat was one of my favourite in Sri Lanka. The guest house is clean and the owners very friendly. The breakfast was good and my room was very comfortable as spacious. Whether it really deserves a recommendation in the rough guide or not I'm not so sure. A short... More

We stayed for two nights and found the room comfortable except for the hot water arrangements and very thin towels. Wouldn't like to be there in winner. The hot water heaters work but the flow is minimal so you are chasing get a trickle to have a shower - updating would be great. The very thin towels just smear the... More

The room was ok, but basic. The shower was not with hot water at all, it was freezing. When we asked if there is hot water, the owner told us there is. We were a little bit disappointed with that. There is a livingroom, but it's very akward with all the tables right next to each other. If you want... More
