After a long trip down from Habarana we were grateful to arrive at Colombo Haven. Tucked away from the busy main road behind Carnvial Ice Cream this place a hideaway from the hustle & bustle of city life.
We were able to walk to Galle Face Green and the coast line up to Fort & the Pettah quite easily as well as to the bigger shops such as Paradise Road and Odel.
When we first arrived we did notice building works going on close by which we were initally worried about but once inside we did not have any problems with disturbance or noise from the builders.
We stayed in Margossa den which had the most fantastic comfortable big beds and fun shower with lights and radio which I enjoyed playing with :)
John and his family are really really friendly and helpful. I cannot manage spicy food and was grateful for the western breakfast they provided. John was also great in helping us arrange transport to our next destination.
