We stayed here for 1 night. The GH is set back from the busy road up a quieter lane. Our room and ensuite were clean and spacious. We enjoyed "hoppers" for breakfast, along with the usual toast etc followed by a huge plate of fresh fruits. Blue Sky is about 10 minutes walk from the cave temples. At present, the... More

We spent 3 nights here. The owner is very friendly and gave good advises for our journey. Rooms are very clean and cheap with spacious and new bathroom with hot water. Free wifi. Only 2 rooms for the moment but owner plans to extend.

However, Upil did a lot of help for me in booking, getting a... More

Upl makes you very welcome in his currently small (2 rooms with a few more in the process of being built) guesthouse. The guesthouse is... More

I visited Blue Sky Guesthouse with two friends earlier in the year. The rooms are simple, but comfotable, with wifi, satellite TV, and the choice of AC or fan. The owner collected us from and dropped us back to the bus station free of charge and was very helpful throughout the trip, organising a day trip out for us with... More

There are only two rooms but both are spacious and clean and can hold maxiumly 3 people. It is located in a small alley and is surrounded by trees and jungles and sometimes visited by monkeys. Very laid-back and relaxing. The owner picked me up at the bus station and made one very nice Sri Lanka breakfast one morning. It... More

Only 2 rooms bu these are very big but also very dark... Breakdast is included and you get a lot of fresh fruit! Dinner is cheap with fresh fruit and rice/noodles in an enormous amount. It is 10min walking from the cave temples, close to a beautiful lake, 3min from centrum with tuctuc (100-150rs). The owner is very enthusiastic, sometimes... More
