We stayed at Garden Guest House for one night only and thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality of the hosts! The family took the trouble to arrange for a pick up at the airport at midnight. The driver had to wait almost 2 hours for us to get through the customs, do the money exchange and purchase the phone card etc. We were greeted by the host who stayed up to welcome us with a glas of refreshing Passion Fruit juice! We had a large a/c room with a clean, big bathroom on the second floor. When we got down for breakfast next day, the morning of the Full Moon Festival, we were served with the delicious festival food: rice cooked in coconut milk. We took a short rest after breakfast in the yard with lush greens and wi-fi access. In the meantime, the host helped us charge our Dialog card and purchase train tickets to Kandy. The guest house is located on a quiet street with easy access to the city center by a short Tuk Tuk ride. It was a short but memorable stay. We were touched when my husband got a call from the host when we arrived in Kandy to see how we were doing! We would recommend it to anyone who desire a full-service accommodation with a home-away-from-home experience in an exotic setting!
