The Weir house is a private holiday home that is rented out when the owners are absent. We received a warm welcome from Lucian who manages the home with the help of a cook and house boy who were also on hand to greet us with the best cold watermelon/lime drink of our trip.
We had our choice of 3 rooms and choose the one that was off of the living room. As with all of our hotels in Sri Lanka the lighting is dim so you may want to bring a flashlight for reading.
There is a good selection of books and a wonderful swing in the living room you can relax in. There are a lot of DVDs available and we watched several movies.
We took a long walk to the weir and also in the other direction to the main road observing the colorful village life along the way. My husband had a swim in the pool that overlooks the green valley.
The food was superb. The chef made a wonderful seafood soup in coconut milk as well as other traditional food such as 8 dish fish curry and hoppers for breakfast. We enjoyed our 2 nights at Weir house and highly recommend it for a tranquil stop in bustling Sri Lanka
