Nice place to stay is very quit, a little far away from the noisy Colombo and this is good . We had to walk quite long to get there from the train station, better if you take a tuk tuk.The owner is a gentle and welcoming woman. We loved the turtle in the garden!

When we stayed here we had the whole place to our selfs, it's almost like your own home, nice lady who runs it and get what you pay for, nice sitting area with tv and computer however the kitchen is very dirty. Recommend eating out.

We came here twice because of the good ratings and they are true! The owner is a nice woman and the rooms are spacious and clean, tough they could be a little more decorated... Ther are a few good restaurants close to the home stay and the train is a 5 minute walk Overall perfect for a few nights

I was on a trip to colombo, looking to do a Chef Course and needed a budget place to stay. Owner-lovely lady and very helpful. Situated- in a quiet and safe neighbourhood. Room-old town house classic type (Sir Lanka style ) basic amenities that one could ask for in a guest home. Home a way from home atmosphere.

A friend & I were on a budget trip thru Sri Lanka in December 2010 and we chose this place from the Internet. What a catch.......! It's a 2 minute walk to everything - the beach, the store, the main road. And yet, it's situated in a quiet & peaceful neighbourhood. The owner Priyani is a lovely lady - no... More
