I wanted to experience the new train service from Colombo, and chose to travel to Haputale, which is a very favorite destination of mine. Through a local tour operator web site I found and decided to stay over night at the Awinco Guest house. It is a modest guest house with clean rooms abathrooms, run by a family. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. I took dinner in the room. The food was not spectacular, but simple and tasty? I managed to get a decent amount of sleep thanks to a nice soft blanket. Breakfast was moreThan I expected, with fresh bread toast and eggs. All this at a very reason rates, made this an enjoyable stay.
