We had two rooms at this small hotel/guest house. The double was fully renovated tastefully with a particularly modern bathroom and although small was generally very nice. However we also had a triple in an annexe which was much less impressive. Although the bathroom was nice and the room very large the furniture in the room was very old and dated and looked to be items that had been deemed not good enough for the rest of the house. The kitchen was extremely basic.
This room rather lets down the rest of the house and the management is clearly rather embarrassed by it. Of course, they were not embarrassed enough not rent it out which is what they should do if they are concerned about poor reviews.
The location is quiet and just 15 minutes tuk tuk ride from the centre of Colombo. The breakfast,although not cheap,was pleasant.
