The room was cosy, clean and in a nice location. The staff was friendly and helpful! I enjoyed the safari trips, the driver tried his best to show us most animals. On the down side there was one person too many and as result one girl had to seat in the front with the driver, also one of the car... More

Mixed feelings from this place. We liked a location - stayed in bungalow facing paddy fields with birds and monitor lizards (and mosquitoes and lots of dogs running around). Also not far from a town and close to wine shop :-) Free pick up from Pannegamuwa junction was also convenient. Our room was clean, but beds uncomfortable. What we didn't... More

When we talked to the owner, we had the intuition, that the price he sad, was quiet highly, and no room for negotiation. We were right, but Safari was ok, aso was the room (but careful, much higher price than mentioned in the lonley planet) Dinner was expensive, and what we get for the price, was an insult for the...

This family owned guest house is ideally located for those who visit Yala National Park or Kataragama.Clean, air-conditioned rooms with all modern amenities for a very attractive price.Though I haven't tasted their food I have seen the restaurant full with foreign tourists. You can also conveniently rent their safari jeeps.Overall very good experience

Our room was facing the paddy fields where plenty of birds visible. Tissa lake and Temple were stones throw away which gave an authentic feeling for the srilankan way of life. It is unfortunate to find mosquitoes swarming which hampered our relaxation. B-first was below average with Egg-Toast and Jam/Margarine. WIFI not available and excuse of signal weak not acceptable.... More

This is a family owned and operated guesthouse and the owners Ebert and his wife Kumari really did make us feel at home. We found Ebert to be very friendly and helpful and Kumari to be an excellent cook and lovely person. We found the rooms spacious, clean and reasonably priced. The location is easy walking distance to the city... More

The rooms were cheap but still very nice for the price. Probarbly the Hotel owner earns his money through the safaris booked via the hotel. But it still seemed reasonably priced to us so we were very satisfied with the guesthouse! The staff is friendly and check out isn't until after the safari!
