We stayed here on our Sri Lanka Round Trip and had 2 nice weeks. The owner's wife prepared excellent Sri Lankan Breakfast and Dinner, you get a mosquito net and the room was very clean and you can get your clothes washed here. We were a bit afraid of sharing the bathroom with another couple. But we were there all alone so no problem. The bathroom was also very clean. A short background to this guest house: The owner lost everything but luckily not his family in the tsunami. Some money was collected from Germans and this guesthouse was built with this money. The owner itself does not speak english very well (but gets help from his young son) so be patient if you want to make a reservation and if possible do this via telephone. Then you get a cheap price around 2000 Rupies for the room. If you make the reservation online via the homepage, note that a travel agent called Lakpura uses the old homepage from the owner including some pictures without his permission and you have to pay much more, furthermore you do have to make an advanced payment and Lakpura does not disclose this if you send a reservation. So be careful. At the end: Even if you book via the travel agent it is very cheap, around 30 USD and it is a really nice place to stay.
