The guesthouse is well located in a quiet hillside location with good views, yet close enough that you can walk to the town (10-15 min). The rooms are daily basic but still good value at the price. The host was very friendly and helpful. Only complaint is the takeaway sandwiches we got for our breakfast which were awful.

This family run guest house is an excellent choice in Haputale, as it has been for many years. Good location, very high up in pleasant gardens, was quiet and peaceful during our visit last August. The wonderful views which had been previously are no longer possible due to tree growth, but nevertheless, the air is fresh and cool, as you... More

This is definitely a solid option if you're ever looking for a place in Haputale. We love hiking so we based ourselves in Haputale for four nights, and Amarasinghe was a nice relaxing place to come back to after a long day of walking. Hot showers with good water pressure, nice clean comfortable beds, home cooked curries, quiet yet accessible... More

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.

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
