All in all, this was a good stay. Booking was easy, the owner picked me up promptly from the bus stop. The room was adequately clean and the mosquito nets were effective. The bathroom was clean, though a bathmat at the door would have been a useful addition. There is a clothes airer in the room. The windows can be... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were very happy with the experience. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The owners are really friendly and helpful, and gave us good advice. They provided us with good quality bicycles for exploring the sights. We enjoyed our meals which were "family style" around a communal table, enabling us to... More

A really friendly place, with clean rooms, good wifi, great food, helpful family with own tuk tuk and possible bike rental (altho' we walk everywhere). It is actually within walking distance of town although there isn't much to do there but a couple of snack places to eat. The location is quiet and food is served on communal tables so... More

We stayed one night, and were satisfied with the simple room. There was wifi, AC, and hot water (if you switched on the heater about an hour beforehand) and the people running the hotel were friendly. We were the only people there, so we were not able to order the curries on the menu, but the noodles and rice were... More

We stayed in Devi Tourist Home for only one night but it was exactly what we needed. Big, clean, air-conditioned rooms and great food. The outdoor lounge/living area is a nice little place to relax in the shade and the owner is happy to help arrange tours from there to other cities/sightseeing spots. It was so easy that we just...

We went there last week for 2 nights. The rooms was the last one on the right with twin beds and A/C, not hot water (but useless considering the very warm weather) for 2500r. The bed was nice, clean, a/c worked properly. The food was very good, and the owner's wife even showed us how to cook chicken and potato... More

We stayed here for just a night stopping in to see the ruins in April. The family who owns it is very friendly and accommodating. It does kind of feel like you’re spending the night at someone’s house, rather than a guesthouse, especially if there aren’t many guests there. The food is okay. The fan room on the far right...

We stayed here for one night whilst backpacking through Sri Lanka! It was great for what we needed- a cheap, basic place to stay after a long trip to sigiriya rock and polonnaruwa. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming and the rooms were clean. There are quite a few Mosquitos in the area so don't forget your deet! In... More

We stayed here for one night during a six day tour of Sri Lanka. We were warmly welcomed, the accommodation was basic, but clean and functional. The food was excellent and being a little further out of town made the setting calm and peaceful, would recommend.

The place is out of the center so it's very calm. You can order dinner, which is a good thing if you don't want to go out after a long day and it's cheap. Room is OK but there was so many mosquitoes, had not seen so many in my whole trip. We used the A/C as you can't breathe... More
