We've stayed here for 1 night and it was horrible. Don't believe what they say on their website, coz that's picture perfect. What's wrong in this accommodation? 1. Coachroaches all over the place 2. Tiny bathroom 3. No hot water (so you'll have a very cold shower) 4. No water pressure so the shower only had 2 tiny streams of... More

The staff are extremely friendly, and the guesthouse overall was great. A wonderful view across to the mountains from our balcony. Food for breakfast and dinner was wonderful. We wished we could have stayed longer than a night.

had a brilliant 4 day tour with Blue Haven Tours in June. My driver Chinthaka Silva was absolutely brilliant, and my pre-trip arrangements with Mr Linton (the owner of the company) were fantastic. Everything was delivered as promised and for an excellent price. Chinthaka not only acted as a great driver (no mean feat on the roads of Sri Lanka)... More

We spent 2weeks in Sri Lanka over the Christmas holidays (high season). As there were many places we wanted to visit in Sri Lanka in a short time requiring to cross the country from west to east, north to south, we quickly decided to hire a driver as it would not have been manageable with local public transportation (too slow)....

Myself and my fiancé have just finished a 9 day tour with Blue Haven! And we cannot thank them enough for everything. We flew in to Colombo and the driver was waiting with a sign with our name on when we came through the arrivals hall. Everything was made easy and was very efficient. On our tour we visited Kandy,...

We would like to write about our excellent driver Saman who looks like a national guide. We spent a very good week travelling from kandy to uppuvelli with him. Thanks to his knowledge, he teached us a lot of things about srilankan culture, history, religion... he took Us along local restaurant where we would have never been alone. Very helpful,We... More

The staff is friendly and helpful yet the drain-water from the bathrooms are let out to neighbouring properties, which in turn gives a foul smell. The owners could do a bit to make the surroundings more hygienic and pleasant.

This review is not for the Blue Haven Guest House, but for the driver I hired through Blue Haven Tours and Travel. Public buses in Sri Lanka are in bad shape and are overcrowded, so the best way of saving time and for your safety is to hire a driver. I hired a driver for 7 days (2 days from... More

We travelled with BHTC for two weeks in Sri Lanka. Our guide picked us up in the airport and I must say it was an experience out of this world. Waruna is his name and he is by far the best guide we have ever had. Sri Lankans are easygoing and meet you eye to eye. Waruna was the quintessence... More

I originally booked a 3 day tour for the "cultural triangle" but extended to 7 days as I was very pleased with the tour. Lalinda the driver was excellent, he knew all the essential spots to check out and was helpful when I had troubles. Highly recommend!
