We stopped at Colombo Haven for the first part of our trip in Sri Lanka. John (the owner) was very helpful, answering all emails promptly before our arrival. He was very accomodating, and sent a driver to get us from the airport at 5AM. The property in itself is welcoming, light, spacious and beautiful.
We stayed in the bamboo room, and it was large and had a shower which is an experience in itself! Breakfast is served both western and Sri Lankan style with an ample side of fruit, so we were well fed before venturing into Colombo.
John is very helpful and even booked our train tickets to leave to Kandy (book ahead of time to get first class, we didn't manage to!). He gave us great suggestions for things to do in Colombo: do visit the Galle Face Hotel at Sunset and the ice cream shop next to Colombo Haven.
I would recommend this place to anyone - you'll definitely be looked after.
