This place is fine as long as you are realistic about your expectations. The room is large enough and there is sufficient space to unpack and arrange your things in the wardrobe and on the shelves. The attached bathroom is excellent - the hot water works well if you switch the boiler on 15 minutes before you need it. Wi-Fi... More

Basic tidy accom. No food available but had wifi. 30 min from city. The beach close by is unswimable. Arrived at accom with no one at reception and no answer to our calls. Neighbour called owner who was at place of worship. An hour of waiting around lost due to owner or property assistant not been around.

We probably made a mistake staying in this location as we were originally going to travel to Galle and this was on the train line. Due to weather we decided to head inland to Kandy so colombo would have been better. However, there is some major issues with customer service at Hornbill. We we're unable to order food through them... More

Don't purchase space here in advance online; it isn't worth the $22 USD (for non-AC) they charge online. Better to go in person and negotiate a better deal. At absolute max the room may be worth $10. Let me explain: The rooms are fairly basic and very near the train station, which is good in terms of proximity to that... More

Pros: nice large room with clean bathroom. Cons: 20mins tuktuk into Colombo. No local places to eat or even buy water! Staff were fairly unhelpful, didn't reply to emails, couldn't recommend anything locally. Nothing in the kitchen except a kettle.

We arrived in the evening 10.30 pm. But gladly there was someone to welcome us. Its like a house with shared living room and kitchen. Every room has its own bathroom attached, its all very clean. Our room didn't have hot water, unfortunately it didnt work. Beds were good and the airconditioning worked well, although noisy. Wifi very good, especially... More
