We had a warm welcome and a pleasant stay however our choice was highly influenced by Lonely Planet - unwise as while the 'Top Choice' status was probably well earned, the standard has not been maintained. We found the surroundings a bit tired and it was the first accommodation in SriLanka which didn't clean our room daily. We had a... More

So we were with two friends that we met on the road and they found this place on Lonely Planet. It was on the Main Rd. so pretty easy to find. The female owner showed us the rooms and after some bartering she said they could gave us the rooms for Rs. 2500 each without A/C, and provided driver's accommodation.... More

They come and picke you up at the bus terminal, rooms are spacious and clean for a really good price, and people are nice. No breakfast included, so we didn't try their food habilities. Safari trip was managed by another hotel in the area and the owner of Travellers Home wasn't very happy with that, but having the chance of... More

We stayed here for one night (or should I say half night) to go on a half day safari in Yala National Park. The rooms are ok with fan and airco. The curry in the restaurant is very good; 1 portion is enough for 2 people! The people here are very friendly. So nothing to complain about this. Why only... More

We were driven to Travellers House by a tuk-tuk driver and we are grateful that he brought us there! Travellers House is a very pleasant place to stay, the rooms are very clean, the food is just excellent (the best fried rice we ate in Sri-Lanka) and the owners are great peple - especially the wife of the owner, who...

I arrived in Tissa later than I would have preferred and without a reservation. The owner was lovely. She explained she didn't have one of the newer bungalows to offer me, but showed me a cheaper room in the main guesthouse. At first glance it looked a little dirty, but later we discussed that it and the rest of the... More

We stayed in two of their newly finished rooms. They were immaculately appointed, particularly the bathrooms. The food was great too, and the staff very welcoming. Here's hoping the clean standards last!

We stayed at this place for 4 nights and had a great time. It's a great base for visiting Yala and Bandulla national parks and the owner can also organise trips to Uda Wallawe too. They offer good food and some of the rooms with balcony have great views over a rice paddy field. This is a family-run place and... More
