If you are looking for a quiet place, extremely clean, with a friendly family atmosphere, you will like Amarasinghe. Wonderful home cooked dinners by the owners mum, and cosy comfortable rooms with nice balconies, it was outstanding value. They were very helpful with telling us all the best local walks, and arranged a trip and Safari to Uda Walawe in... More

The guest house is in a good location made more pleasant by the Amarasinghe family's surrounding gardens. The guest house was a quick tuk tuk ride from the station and located with views out over the tea plantations and up towards Lipton's Seat. Make sure that you leave enough time for the short early morning walk to see the sun... More

I approached this place with some trepidation after reading how some were treated, even though a friend had recommended it. The door was answered by Mr. Amarasinghe the elder and I could see that he had some health issues. Anyways he has lost his short term memory and his vision was poor. Maybe that had accounted for some of the... More

Well located in a small and quiet valley. Warm welcome and very helpful people. Nothing fancy about the room and the bathroom, just Sri Lakan standards. Good rice and curry at the evening. Standard breakfast : fruit, egg, toasts and marmalade.

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!!
