Dont hire him or if you did, dont pay all the money. He cant do what he promised, he start with his good looking brochure and credential and the really good price (I've asked from the tourism center, they said it too cheap, noone can to that). We should paid a bit more for the better service and quality. He's... More

We stayed here for a night, because our driver told us he knew Rodney. While there were some pluses, like getting juice when we got there, it was over all a terrible place. The bathroom was not clean, and had a very dim light. The door to our balcony was broken, and there where little geckos all over the place.... More

When we arrived to the place, they showed us one room which was decent looking (probably their best room on offer). So we said we'll take 5 rooms for the 10 of us. We put our belongings down and went for dinner right away. After dinner everybody came back home and had a better look at the rooms. Too hot... More

The most people if not all met Rodney in Colombo at the train station waiting for the train to Kandy. He approached us with a offer – his guesthouse. He showed us pictures and so we decided to give him a chance. In Kandy a car with a driver was waiting for us and took us to Rodney´s place. It... More

Felt compelled to write this review after experiencing and witnessing Rodney first hand. We didnt do our homework on Rodney and only wish we had. Do the search, read the forums. Rodneys a scammer from way back out to take, cheat and worm his way into your wallet whilst delivering as little as possible. Basically there is no transparency with... More

We also met Rodney in Colombo, and went with him to his guest house. Stunning views from the balcony, the staff are fantastic cooks, we had some very nice food there.Rodney will try to take over your holiday, offering to organize trips where ever you wish, and will keep trying to push you into his trips and days out.
