Me and my friend went last Friday to celebrate his b'dy. We had the best time there.. food was piping hot and eye catching ...and taste was like heaven. service was spot on. I highly recommend this place. Tip.: If you on date night or need some calm and privacy in busy area this is a good one.

The place is a bit away from the city, but not that far... and very quiet. Only a few rooms there, nicely furnished, with good taste. Food is good. A pool is available - did not try it. Very relaxing - I enjoyed every second of my stay there.

We liked everything about the place. It is small but feels like real oasis in Colombo. The service is personal and very nice. The restaurant serves excellent both modern and traditional dishes and you will like the menu. The lady manager (probably owner) is very warm and professional. Fully recommended.

We stayed for four nights in early August. The staff are very welcoming and helpful, the garden and pool are beautiful and the house has a wonderful colonial era decor. The place is full of charm and character. Our room was definitely 'shabby chic' - possibly a coat of paint and easier to manage curtains would be good and the... More

I originally booked to stay here for 5 days last July 2015. When my plans changed and I cancelled the booking 3 months prior to my scheduled stay the hotel had already charged my credit card for the full amount. It took 2 weeks of phone calls and emails to receive my refund and then it was 40 US dollars... More

We had booked to stay here 3 nights, but due to various circumstances ended up only staying 1 night (nothing to do with the hotel). When we arrived after an exhausting 8 hour schlepp from the hill country, we were disappointed by our family suite. It didn't look like the picture we'd seen and was actually two rooms, separated by... More

We had a lovely time in this hotel having just arrived in Sri Lanka. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, the rooms were very comfortable and we had a really delicious Sri Lankan breakfast. I thoroughly recommend it.

We stopped here for a night following our flight from London, fanrastic introduction to Sri Lanka, a hidden gem in Colombo. All the staff made us feel so welcome. The pool was an added treat and the food excellent in the restaurant. Thank you

Upon arrival we were greeted with glasses of fresh iced tea (very welcome after 18+ hours of flying!) and a very friendly reception. The bungalow is a bit further out of Colombo than we had realised but you can still get into the hustle and bustle of the centre for around 300 rupees via tuk-tuk. The room was lovely, we... More

Situated some 7 km from the Colombo Fort railway station and 400 Rs by metered tuk tuk. Arriving and stepping into a lush tropical established garden gives a sensation of restful peace. The hotel is a typical colonial style establishment, very tastefully furnished for the period. Rooms likewise are in keeping. A wardrobe provides space for hanging clothes should it... More
