“Poorly set up”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2008

The image displayed on the site is the owner's house and the neighboring house not displayed is where the guests sleep and dwell. This guest house has many mosquitoes, water bugs, roaches, and uncomfortable & extremely old bedding. The price doesn't complement the inadequate conditions offered per night. There isn't even complimentary water which is standard in every other place I have visited throughout Sri Lanka. Over priced, poor conditions and general unhealthy conditions to sleep in.

  • Liked — the internet connection but you had to tolerate bugs in your computer and swarming around you.
  • Disliked — the multitude of insects, poor bedding
  • Stayed November 2007, traveled on business

we have had many good responses for what we offer and we regret to note the comments made by guests who cannot accept the fact that we have a set of rules for this organisation and is spelt out to every visitor both in writing and verbally.
