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. We very much enjoyed the breakfast on the new year's morning. They served us very tasty coconut milk rice, fish curry and... More

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. The house and garden are overflowing with an eclectic mix of furnishings, collectibles, and architectural features. The larger room, with double bed and bunk... More

This is my second stay at the Garden Guest House. Chitrupa and his family are still as gracious and hospitable as ever, and made our stay very welcome and comfortable. Airport pick up was very timely. Our rooms were very clean, and the place is quiet and accessible via tuk-tuk to cafes, temples and shops. We were served a yummy... More

This was a fantastic choice for our stay in Colombo. We were welcomed and looked after as members of the family throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for the kind and gracious host family. Excellent suggestions for highlights to see in Colombo were given and limitless assistance provided in arranging our transportation and other needs. We had a... More

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. What really amazed me was the extra mile the owner went in order to accomodate our needs. Chitrupa personally went and bought train tickets for us as we wanted to have them... More

I only stayed one short night, left very early in the morning. I wish I could have stayed longer. Very warm welcome and readyness to help. Good suggestions for Colombo visit. On the way back to Italy I had a complete day in Colombo, but I didn't stay overnight since my flight was at 4am the next day. Mr de... More

This B&B was the perfect choice for us on an overnight stop in Colombo. Even though we arrived late in the evening we were greeted very kindly. The room was clean and welcoming, our hosts very gracious and helpful with travel details, and the breakfast, served in the dining room opening out onto a well kept garden, was fantastic.

We spent the first week of our honeymoon in Sri Lankan hotels and decided to book a guesthouse in Colombo to finish our tour. Garden guesthouse was absolutely perfect. From arriving to departing we felt like we were staying with friends who were keen to make our stay as comfortable and easy as possible. The house is very quirky but... More

Very good location, with direct access to "airport" road (30+ minutes), two minutes walk to nearest (metered) tuc-tuc road (takes you everywhere for a couple of dollars), and in easy walking distance to many good official (and hidden) sightseeing spots. And yet, in a very quiet area! Very personal atmosphere and decor,even with an indoor fountain and a lit-up garden.... More
