“Brilliant place to stay for medical elective”
Reviewed June 9, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed here for our Elective placement at Ragama hospital (Colombo North teaching Hospital). As a place to stay, could not recommend more highly. Nishan and Ruwan (owner and housekeeper) are both incredibly friendly, helpful and welcoming. They make you feel safe and like one of the family. It's a great location for the hospital, (150 Rs in a TukTuk), less than 10 minutes to the supermarket and ATM, and 2 minutes to a local shop and take away kitchen where you can buy rice an hoppers cheap. The lady there is lovely. Ragama station is busy but well located and you can get pretty much anywhere from there (although trains can get very busy). Nishan is great for recommendations about what to do on afternoons an weekends, and Ruwan is full of local knowledge and tips.

Aircon was available at an extra cost, but there are ceiling fans in all the rooms.

Cleanliness was ok, there were a few critters so don't leave food lying around. Some of the towels/sheets could do with a refresh, as they were a bit tired and mildly stained.

Wifi was provided but at times was extremely slow, loading webpages was tricky, but this was often due to the other guests.

Overall we had a really great stay, especially if you're going to be there for a while. It's very much value for money and cheaper than Colombo, which you can travel to very easily. Locals were much friendlier than in Colombo as it isn't touristy at all. So tricky to find postcards but cheap to actually post them!

Perfect location as very close to the international airport.
Tidy room with AC and a small pool to relax after a long flight.
Delicious food for dinner.

Special thanks to Nishan who showed us some beautiful places in Sri Lanka!

“Very bad location in Sri Lanka”

person found this review helpful

Dear Team
Thanks for your email.
As you aware that we agreed with guy or the owner of the accommodation at Colombo.
We agreed with him as below :
- 3 A/C rooms with two toilets.
- The distance between the accommodation and airport is 20 minutes by vehicle.
- A private access to the facility with keys.
- well furnished for the rooms.
After we arrived at the facility we found different condition as below
- only one toilet working and the other one was not working at all as required a mantenace.
- only one AC available in one room out of two.
- The place was not clean and very dirty.
- Out of 3 rooms, he kept one guest staying in 3rd room.

- The place very far away from airport, it takes almost one hour.

Because we were exhausted, tired and arrived at three morning we agreed to stay till 7 morning.

We left the facility and agreed with owner to pay for us $ 100 back within a day but he was keeping lying and finally he refused to pay the money back.

I' d appreciated if you could take promote action against this guy to avoid further business loosing and affect your reputation.

Awaiting for your support regards this issue.

Thnx and regards
SAIF

Dear Guest
Your review itself has the answer for the issues as our properties are not given with keys to guests and it clearly described in property details but with care taker or manager.
Please note that your last minute reservation was not accepted until I got your green light about my available options for your stay. Once agreed we accepted and the promised facilities were on offer.
But we were shocked with your behavior once arrived demanding for privet access for the property and forcefully removing the care taker from the bungalow. Since there was another guests in the accommodation, we had extra trouble transferring them to our other property and pay him compensation. Furthermore, forcing to have the driver at the accommodation.
Due to our patience and respect towards all our guests, we were more than flexible and allowed you to stay with your way.
I think it is now very easy to check distance with available online facilities and we request all our guests to check that beforehand. We will always publish everything right about the property and the informed time and the distance is the same but I would say at 2 am it will be even faster.
Since the guest was demanding for a privet property for them, we decided to offer that to him without any extra charge. But they wanted to move out and I explained booking policies to them and allowed them to do as they wish.
I think this is a serious misleading of information and request the guests not to have such practice in your future visits.
Best Regards
Owner

“Mixed feelings about this place”
Reviewed August 6, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We were booked to stay at the Nature's Bliss for two weeks but had to move out, sadly, after only one week. More about that soon. The guest house itself is really well located half way between Ragama and Mahabage junction therefore giving excellent links up or down the country.

The place itself wasn't exactly the cleanest place we've stayed in, the mattress had no protector on it, which every other hotel /guest house we stayed in did have. Hence the bed and pillows were stained and the sheets too we're also not clean. The bathroom area was dusty and had other people's hair around the floor.

When we first arrived the pool hadn't been used for a while we were told so wasn't as clean as it should have been. We told the owner and it was cleaned the following day to an acceptable standard. Our daughter, and myself, spent every day in the pool when we weren't going visiting friends or family. The only problem was that the tiles on the pool steps didn't have smooth edges therefore my wife cut her foot once and my daughter cut her foot too. The reason we moved out early was also regarding the pool. Where the pool slopes down to the deep end the tiles were not aligned correctly and a sharp edge again cut my daughter's foot. This time, badly! There was blood trailed all the way upstairs to our room which i cleaned up myself whilst the caretaker was sat upstairs in the lounge area watching cricket on TV. I told him what had happened and he just said ok but carried on watching TV. I asked him for a first aid kit and he said they did not have one. I was reliably informed that they bought one after this incident. This riled me so much that we decided to move out. The owner paid us a partial refund for the time remaining.

Dear Guest
Thank you the review and highlighting the property’s location. We also appreciate emphasis made by the guests for resolving all their issues.
I had my concerns acknowledging this booking since the guests approached me by bypassing the trip advisor site.
A massive load of cargo brought by them was loaded in their upgraded family room and unpacked with the help of my staff which disturbed me. Since then the room was a mess and staff couldn’t do regular room service.
What is surprising is about cuts in the pool which we haven’t come across for a decade but only with these guests. We noticed an unusual time was spent by the kid in the pool during the days by making loud notice mostly by the adult. As a result of that we got complains from the nabourhood.
Due to variety of issues we experienced with the guests, I requested the guests to move out if they are not happy with the property. Even though the booking was made by them 6 months ago, I decided to pay 100% for remaining days which is against my booking policies.
I hope this will be a useful tip for choosing your type of accommodations for future stays.
