Morning Star is the last guest house we live in Sri Lanka, also the best one. Not only the facility, but also the host is really nice.
The host provides a four people room which is big; clean, with A/C, with Sofa/big closet and a modern comfort bathroom. The most important thing is there's also a big swimming pool and we have fun with it. The breakfast is also brilliant. They provide platter of fruit; 4 kinds of breads; butter; jam; tea/coffee; eggs; and yoga and this is also the best breakfast we have in Sri Lanka.
The host is very kind. I booked a triple room for our three girls first and when we arrived we found there are four beds in the room. Actually, our team also has a boy; he planned to find a guest house by himself. When we ask the host if he can stay here, he said yes and only charges 3 dollars for the breakfast for the guy. And our flight is in the second day evening, when we ask if we can keep the house until 9pm when usually check-out time is at noon, the host also said yes and only charge 2 dollars for extra-expense. And at that hot afternoon, we enjoy ourselves with the cool A/C and the wonderful swimming pool and then the bathroom again, so the cost is truly exceed 2 dollars for the host. And we ask him to recommend the restaurant, which turns out is a good taste and not expensive one. We ask him to order Tutu for us to go out, which turns out we cannot find anther the same cheap one when we come back. Really appreciate to him.
