Very bad experience - my money was stolen during my absence which i came to know later. Please do not stay! Terrible. I stayed with my family - they never bothered to check the staff even after i complained about the money i lost.

We arrived on a late night flight that was further delayed and these wonderful people waited and greeted us with open arms. Kind and genuinely interested in ensuring that our stay was a pleasant one. My family (mom and sister) enjoyed the visit, and we are sure to come back again.

We were there for the second time (first time in 2013) and they built a whole set of new rooms and a nice reception area. But the feeling of a small boutique hotel remains. Clean comfortable rooms with a/c give you peace after spending a day in Colombo jungle. Breakfast is good and the staff kind.

The room was quite spacious, neat, clean, with a comfortable bed and the sleep quality was good - no traffic noise etc. The... More
