Friendly Host and excellent food! extremely helpful and courteous. stayed over night with family and friends, we felt right at home! great location as it was close to all the major attractions near by. Ideal for a stay over and an early morning climb to the Sigiriya rock. The Owner made us feel right at home!

For a start I must have had the worst food I've ever eaten in my life, that goes for both the dinner and the breakfast which I had the misfortune to attempt to eat.

The room that we stayed in certainly didn't look anything like in the pictures. It was run down and filthy. There was no mosquito net, in spite of being practically in the jungle in the back garden. The bathroom was a disgrace, we didn't even shower as we felt it was just too disgusting. The food was practically inedible and... More
