This was a simple, comfortable guesthouse and we really enjoyed the opportunity for a massage on arrival, very relaxing. The balcony was a lovely place to sit for breakfast or with a pot of tea. Service was fine, and when the staff had any difficulty understanding English, one of the NGO managers could be called. Easy transport options with tuk... More

The location is pretty good! It's on a lane behind a bank. There's right Main Street in font of the bank. And there are a lot bus to Fort. The room is clean and shower is good. But basically, it's overpriced. I paid USD30 and got a room with share bathroom and w/o breakfast. I was served 4pcs bread with... More

I've booked this place thru Agoda website, but the booking was very confusing. On the booking site, it said room is for up to 2 person but when I confirmed the booking, the confirmation slip showed 1 person. I wrote in to Agoda to ask them to clarify, at the end, they asked me to pay more for extra person.... More

If you don't know where it is, it's a toughy to find. Just write down the telephone number and give it to your taxi or tuk tuk driver to call for directions. Inside is a large area where the blind masseurs undertake shiatsu massages (just what you want after 16 hour journey). The masseurs were very good and knew what... More

Everything from the reviews is real, this guesthouse is awesome, clean,quiet,good people, only 3 rooms, nice shared bathroom hot water, good wifi! But the problem is how to find it? The guesthouse is located on a small alley behind the main road. No tuk tuk driver knows how to find it. The trick is once you find the right adress... More

Rang and booked a room here, having read the previous good reviews, and it lived up to our expectations. The staff were very welcoming, offering us a cup of tea and little sweets on our arrival, which was much appreciated. The room is above a spa / massage and there is a very calm ambience about the place. We had... More

I stayed there for 2 nights,and I found out it was really worth it. It was very cheap,but everything was enough to make you feel comfortable. Especially staffs are warm and gentle. After just one night,you'll feel it's your Sri Lankan home. If you can't decide where to stay,I highly recommend this hotel. This voice never makes you reglet.

I have been to Thusare- talking hands for a massage several times now. The blind masseuses are extremely skilled and very friendly. I always have a great massage and it is also good value for money. I would thoroughly recommend this and it is also a fantastic cause in helping the blind in Sri Lanka.
