We had the seperate 'villa' across the main building where the restaurant was...My first impression: wow.. we had our own big garden, and this cute little house with 2 rooms. The simple, modern design, combined with the warmth of the sub tropic climate of Yala/ Sri Lanka was very well done. The owner is a very friendly young man, who... More

Little bit out of "town" but really peaceful, great value, amazing food and possibly the best service ever - recommended. Free bikes to explore around the lake, organised our safari at a good rate, very easily and nice extras like tea/coffee without having to ask. The usual Sri Lankan howling dogs in the night the only minor downside but think... More

This is the type of guesthouse you can sit back and comfortably relax in beautiful surroundings - flora and fauna! Rooms spotless and very spacious. Comfortable bed. We ordered the rice and curry for dinner every night and this always included a mulititude of delcious side dishes - it was always more than we could eat. The Sri Lankan breakfast... More

This is a delightful place - recommended to us - with lovely rooms, a warm welcome and a tranquil courtyard. Safari to Yala was arranged with no trouble at all with an excellent driver. The food was also excellent. The plumbing was a bit whiffy, but you get that in Sri Lanka. We just kept the bathroom door shut. Other... More

I must admit that My Village Hotel was by far the best hotel we stayed in during our entire trip. The staff were helpful lot. Located near the lake the hotel gives you much wanted privacy. With 3 rooms on one side of the road and another 3 on the other side, it is the best place to relax with... More

Positives - huge rooms away from the main road. Arranged an excellent guide for Yala Safari. Good food and free bicycles. Improvements - we really rely on the internet as we plan day-to-day but the reliability over the two days was poor. As a side point Tissa as a town offers very little.
