We stayed here for 3 nights, last month. The home-stay is run by a friendly couple – Ajith manages the guests while shy Mutu is the secret behind their fabulous breakfasts and dinners. E-mail correspondence during booking was prompt. The location is just right – a little off Habarana’s main road, which makes it quiet and peaceful.
Rooms and bathrooms are spacious. I’d have liked a window with a view, but the room was occupied (ask for the room out in the front, which does). However, there is a very comfy porch outside the house, so I spent a lot of my time there. This is also a great place to chat with fellow-guests. If you want a room with more privacy, ask for the room outside, with a verandah. It’s a bit smaller than the other rooms, though. Our bed was comfortable and had clean sheets.
The Sri Lankan style breakfasts were hearty and served in the roofed dining area adjacent to the house. They do not offer lunch, but sometimes offer dinner. We had dinner twice and the food was excellent both times, with home-cooked Sri Lankan fare. On one of the days, Ajith recommended Nalin’s, a small eatery on the main road, which dishes out hoppers, rottis and kotthu rottis. That was a good way to sample Sri Lankan fast-food.
We enjoyed Ajith’s & Mutu’s hospitality and the endless cups of tea on the porch, chatting with Ajith or the other guests. Ajith also helped us book an English-speaking guide for Sigiriya. Mutu went out of her way to do laundry for us and didn’t charge for it either. The day we checked out to drive to Kandy, Ajith called in the evening to check if we’d reached okay. All these gestures went a long way into making this a comfortable stay.
