We chose this guest house because it was near the immigration office, where we had to go for a visa extension. The downstairs is pleasant and our room was big enough and clean but it is very cluttered upstairs. We had to negotiate past an ironing board to get through the door.

The Garden Guest House was a very enjoyable location for a few days in Colombo. The hosts are very helpful , the food delicious and the house was very clean. We would certainly stay there again if we were to visit Volombo in the future

We are so glad to made a decision to stay this guest house. Chitrupa and his family welcomed and treated us like their family. The room was very clean and reminded me of lovely B&B in the UK.

If you like being greeted and treated like a member of the family, this is the place for you. We felt that we truly shared the house with the gracious Chitrupa and his mom and staff.

We stayed one night only at the Garden Guest House as we immediately travelled further inland. The room was clean, comfortable and nice, the location calm and quiet.
