We stayed here in September 2014. This place is at a walking distance of the bus stop but tuktuk drivers will try to convince you to go by tuktuk.

If you like to sink a beer at the end of a day at the ruined temples, this is the place. Go up on the roof and watch the sunset as the fruit bats turn the scene prehistoric. Brilliant! I recommend this place. Comfortable, friendly, good value. The owner, Upali, will look after you.

Upali, the owner of the guesthouse, is a very eager man who is always on the run. He makes a habit of meeting the people who make reservations ahead of time at the bus stop, something that is really appreciated to avoid the ever-present tuk tuk drivers. He has connections all over town which is handy if you want o... More

Food is great and cheap, bikes are available for 300rs per day and the archeological area is very close. The owner makes this guesthouse a perfect place to stay and... More

Great value small guesthouse. Delicious food and accommodation and meals were very cheap. The owner was very helpful, got us a tuk tuk to the bus station and the tuk tuk driver flagged down a 'quick bus' to Inamaluwa junction which was indeed very quick! We came back from the ruins at 10.45am hoping to have a quick shower before... More

A pleasant place to stay. I felt immediately like at home thanks to the great atmosphere and the exceptionally friendly staff. The owner Upali was always smiling, chatting with all the guests and giving information, and his cook Rangith was very attentive and cordial. And the food is very tasty! You can borrow bicycles at the guesthouse and visit the... More
