Great place with friendly host. Defiently one of the best places I have stayed in Sri Lanka. A bit expensive, but worth every penny! The place and the rooms are so lovely, filled with flowers upon arrival.

The French couple who run this house clearly know their business - they understand what the western tourist is looking for in Sri Lanka. The house and it's surroundings are beautiful. There is a lot of so called little/final touches like fresh flowers everywhere, a swing or...

Well, we had planned to stay for five nights. However, the first was so unforgettable that we decided to move away, although we are not any troublemakers – on the contrary, we are used to all sort of things. We stayed in room Silene. First of all, there is mould in the wardrobe. The reason is obvious – the water...

Dear Michal, We took your review and comments very seriously and even if we've found it little inflated, we've completely renovated the Silène stantard room. Even, if we've never found any mud in the wardrobe, even if furnitures was not old but real antique from pure Sinhala tradition (very valuable), even if the bathroom was not blocked but was a...

It is a very nice, well maintained home, just far away enough from the beach and restaurants to enjoy peace. The homemade jams, made of tropical fruits, are fantastic and of course the very nice staff and relaxing, beautiful, friendly atmosphere in the house. It was wonderful.

This hotel is brilliant and I'm sad to say we only spent one night here. The owner met us upon arrival and was very friendly, helpful and charismatic. There was 4 of us with 2 rooms and 1 of the rooms was upgraded so had a nice little sitting area and a bit more spacious. The bed was very comfortable...

The French Lotus is a beautiful guest house decorated with taste and attention to every detail by a welcoming, chilled out and knowledgeable young French couple and their friendly staff. We had the deluxe double room which is huge and has the largest bathroom we've ever seen! The terrace is great for relaxing and so is the comfy lounge area....
