4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

It looks as if there's only four twin/double rooms, but they are clean, tidy, and strangely there is an ample supply of hot water. The owners Kusum & her husband Nana are very helpful - even able to offer onward transport at sensible prices rather than the usual rip-off touts that infest tourists.
Breakfast and evening meal;s are excellent.
Lots of bird life and unfortunately lots of our simian bretheren!
If I weas ever to return to Sri Lanka (doubtful) I would return to Green Woods.

Room Tip: Hard to say, mine was good and I had no choice.

This is a great ittle guest house up the road from the town center. Great bird watching from the balcony. I spent a week here and saw over 50 species. Good food too.

An excellent budget guesthouse, immaculately clean and well maintained rooms. The owners Kusum and Nana were very friendly and helpful. Kusum makes amazing homecooked breakfasts and evening meals - order in advance. The food was absolutely yum...

Room Tip: Dont feed the monkeys from the balcony
