We originally booked three nights and checked out after the first! Where do I start... blood on the table, sand in the shower/bathroom. Broken bed, pillows felt like a bag of broken cement. Holes in the fly net, dirty sheets!!!! There was evidence the sheets were not washed as there were some white stains on the brown sheet we had...

We were really keen to do a cooking class in Sri Lanka and were so happy we happened upon this place! It was 100% authentic, held in the back kitchen of the guesthouse and was just the two of us! We were so lucky to have this experience and the food was amazing. This is a relatively new undertaking they...

Good location, just off the main road, quiet but still close to the beach. Rooms were quite basic. Had large A/C room but no light in the bathroom so had to have very quick showers after sunset! Clean, good mosquito net. Hard pillows (as everywhere). Very good whale watching tour tips! Breakfast was very basic - if you like your...

We have been here for a night in December. The position and the structure are great, also breakfast was good and staff was really kind but.... there are a couple of things they should definitely improve! First of all the room was "incomplete", there was just the bed and a shelf, moreover it was not clean at all! We travelled...

We stayed at Mount Garden for 5 weeks, and were taken care of like part of the family! The lunches served on banana leaves were a regular part of our day! They also made delicious fresh vegetable soups for us each night! We definitely would return!!!!

Following a hectic schedule touring the inland and upland landmarks it was a pleasant feeling looking forward to chilling out by the sea. This hotel/guesthouse is a little piece of heaven. Just off the main road up a little side-street it offers peace and solitude whilst only being minutes walking distance from the beach and restaurants. It dominates other close-by...

We stayed as a family of 5. 3 small children and 2 adults for 6 nights. We had a A/C room. We can highly recommend this guesthouse. It is just less than 5 minutes away from the beach (westside) and the guesthouse is quiet and no traffic. The owners are family and are always there to help you. We had...
