My favourite guest house in Sri Lanka! Wonderfully welcoming and friendly. A great location, beautiful house and the rooms were very comfortable, attractive and scrupulously clean! Wish we could have stayed longer.

Once you enter the fort entrance go straight on the central street; Beach Haven is situated almost at the other end of this street. The guesthouse is run by a very friendly family and tries to ensure that you...
