Our flight landed at Colombo at 3 am and we reached the Delma Bungalow at 4.30 am. Despite the odd timing the hosts Manel and Chula were very welcoming and served us tea at that wee hours of the morning (still completely dark outside) which was more than we could expect. We enjoyed their wonderful hospitality and scrumptious food for... More

I came to Sri Lanka for a meeting. Half of our colleagues stayed in a hotel and we stayed here. We definitely had the better deal! The room was very comfortable (air con was essential for sleeping and worth the extra cost). The bathroom was a good size, albeit only had a shower (no bath). Everything was cleaned daily. Although... More

Comfortable and quiet/ peaceful place to stay with very friendly hosts. We arrived late and fresh juice on arrival was greatly appreciated. The breakfasts and dinner we enjoyed were traditional and extremely tasty, and we were really well looked after. The only drawback is the distance to the city combined with rush hour traffic, which wasn't such an issue for... More

I had a wonderful experience staying with Manel and Chula in Delma Bungalow during the Tamil New year. The welcome was warm and friendly. Both the guesthouse and rooms are airy and spacious with fans and air conditioning. Next morning the breakfast was outstanding. . . . mixed native fruit with a typical Senegalese breakfast to follow . . .... More

This is a bed and breakfast in a beautiful house with a nice garden of an elderly couple. It is in a quiet residential neighborhood. It is a great place, if you like to stay with Sri Lankan family, it is not, if you prefer privacy. It is very difficult to find, even for taxi drivers. There are no nearby... More
