We stayed here with our kids (12 and 9 years old) for 16 nights and just loved every single day! We have been to Sri Lanka twice before, travelling all over the place, this time we wanted to take it easy and just stay in one place. Fortunately we booked the Spice House early enough, as this place is so popular. Now I know why: Watsala and Phil are warmhearted and funny people, their staff is friendly and helpful and the whole place has a wonderful atmosphere! We met a bunch of great other travellers, sharing stories at the breakfast and dinner table with them. The food was excellent, the rooms stylish and clean and our view from the balcony in the garden was just fantastic. We´d love to come back one day! Thank you Phil and Watsala for a great time!!
