I arrived in Tissa later than I would have preferred and without a reservation. The owner was lovely.

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

Another guest house in Ella recommended this place. We were picked up at the bus stop at a junction (+/- 5km from Tissa) by the "entrepreneurial" owner. The guest house itself (not the cabanas) is quite simple and we stayed in one of the smaller rooms in the central building. Rooms very not very clean and the bed wasn't that... More

From the moment we arrived we were greeted by a warm smile & friendly service! Whatever we need or want they make it happen, (Safari, tuktuks, rides, washing clothes) food was excellent...home cooked fresh vegetables) our room with deck overlooked a beautiful rice paddy. AC and mosquito netting. Kumare and her husband Ebert were fantastic hosts!

This was a great place to stay. Room was amazing and the staff were the best. We were invited to their private party and they fed us the most amazing food! Not a bad word to say about this place. Also booked a safari with them which was great. Really got our months worth !

Typical example of a victim of their own past success. Unfriendly and arogant owner and his wife with their nephew saving the customer service situation. First offered dirty room with unclean bathroom and only řeku tanky showed us alternatives. Planned to stay 2 nights but after first ten minutes decided against it and stayed one night only. Didnt even wont... More
