If you are looking for action: don't go here. However if you like a serene, tranquil place to read a book and to have excellent food: do go here! Whole family is dedicated to give you a good time. We were picked up at the train station by George (the owner) by his own initiative. Room had a private balcony... More

The house is lovely and comfy, the roaring river behind it, and lots of greenery everywhere. As a result, the air is... More

The owner came down to meet us. At the end of a long day it was extremely tiring. The bathrooms... More

We took a taxi straight from Colombo airport to George's place after arriving very early in the morning. To be fair to the taxi driver it was a bit tricky to find but we got there eventually. It was lovely to stay with a genuine family who cares about the people who are coming to stay in their home. They... More

Staying in George's house was an absolute delight!! My boyfriend and I were extremely well looked after and we could not have felt more comfortable. It was fantastic to see our friendly guide /driver, Nixon, pick us up...he instantly put us at ease in this exciting but hectic city. Anything that we needed George and Nixon would attend to us...
