Tasty buffet, nice and spacious room, albeit very poor wifi (only had good signal whilst in reception and dining area). Good base for Adam's Peak. Owner was very friendly and gave us a lift in his car to catch up with the bus that we had just missed!

We spent a night in this guesthouse before climbing the Peak. The room was big, nice and clean; the staff really helpful and the food very tasty. Anyway, a special mention goes to our driver, which we found through this guesthouse. His name is Ranga and he drove us around Sri Lanka for two weeks, allowing us to discover his... More

Rooms are basic and awfully decorated. The view is great and it is only few minutes away from de Adam's peak. Service is great, food good. Price includes taxes, breakfast and diner. So not the best place for a romantic weekend but the right place for a sleep before the peak.

Staff was helpful in arranging travel to the area. I arrived late, and they were thoughtful enough to leave some dinner for me. View from the rooms of the mountain was exceptional. My only quibble is that they were running low on bottled water, so I did the Adam's Peak hike with only a 0.5L.

The room itself was meh but we weren't here to enjoy the room but to climb Sripada. They arranged for our guide as it was off season. Our guide Nihan works at the hotel and he was a great professional that knew the mountain like the back of his hand. The breakfast was good (or we were just really hungry)... More

The next morning after the climb breakfast was provided. it was basic, but had good views of the peak, and was clean and comfortable. very convenient for the 2:30am start to the climb... More

Set among tea plantations in a valet 30min walk from the start to Adams Peak. Friendly hosts who provided us with excellent meals. Large clean & well appointed rooms with balconies looking out over the valley.Only slight was that the toilet leaked but we were assured that this would rectified. Good value and to be recommended .

Stayed at Slightly Chilled for two nights back in April and loved it. The guy who runs it is really friendly, the rooms and spacious and clean and the breakfasts are really generous and fresh. Only thing I’d say is that we called ahead to book and spoke to the wife of the owner, who quoted us $50 per night... More
