We spend 2 nights in this place and it was a very good choice. Room was clean, hot water and the service is very friendly. It is close to the bus station which is useful for planning your trip. Try the rice and curry, the best we had in Sri Lanka so far.

We are making a tour of Sri Lanka and we find the French Garden in "Le Routard". It's an excellent place to eat, with fresh products, large portions in the plate and waiter(s) whose making effort to speak your language. Too bad we couldn't try the rice and curry. Will be for the next time!

The team of French Garden is very friendly. When we arrive, Rajetha, the manager, came to help us with our luggage. He showed us our room which was perfect. We really enjoyed the nice garden. The rice and curry was also delicious. We were really happy with our choice.

When walking in, you know that you're in the right place. Although the rooms are a bit small and dated, it's clean and the help you receive from the staff that is around is great. Ask for the brothers owner to guide you trough the city, he knows very much and can show you the best spots.
