The owner and a mother of two Puspha restored our faith in Sri Lankan people. She was nice, polite and effective. If you have time, try her dinner, we had a delicious vege curry and there was not a problem for her to fry an egg for our teenage (not eating anything) daughter. She has a cold beer in a... More

Our room was very comfortable, excellent price and the guesthouse had a really nice feel to it. Had delicious dinner. Down a quiet alley/road so away from the noisy road and bea but only a few inutes walk away so ideal for us. Very friendly helpful caring hosts.

Lovely place far from crowds but still 5 minutes from the beach. Not for people who want to party but for those who would like to relax. Close to the nature, beautiful location. Run by very friendly family who are always there for you. Try a dinner there- very tasty and big portions. Rooms are very clean and there is... More

ancient tree guest house is a pleasant, quiet, clean place, run by a sweet family. It is off the main road, 5-10 mins from the beech. Dinner can be arranged and the food is amazingly tasty and portions are generous. We are very pleased we found this place.

Pushpa and her family are wonderful, she even let me into her kitchen to get a few tips on Sri Lankan food. Highly recommend to anyone Who wants to stay away from the crowds and... More

This is our second stay at Ancient Tree. It was so great to be back with Pushpa, Lal and Ritmi and to make the acquaintance of little Praban who must be the sunniest 1 year old on the planet! Ancient Tree is in a perfect spot. Only a short walk away from the beach and much more peaceful with bird... More

The atmosphere was lovely, the rooms are great for the price you pay and the lady who runs it is delightful. we had a fantastic breakfast next day and didn't want to leave,... More

Wie staid in this Guesthouse for two times, and we were really happy. The rooms are clean and nice, not far from the beach, and the family who leads the guesthouse is very friendly and helpful.
