Stayed at Highbury Colombo for 3 nights. Arrived at 1.40am into Colombo Airport and our pre-booked airport pick-up was there waiting for us in the arrivals hall. A friendly and chatty driver and comfortable car took us at the guest house for $35 USD. The driver showed us to our room but never gave us a key and there were no towels in the room which was disappointing as we wanted to shower after our long flight (lucky we brought our own). After a quick sleep we came down to reception at 10am and received a very muted and awkward welcome with no check-in procedure, offer of breakfast and directions/suggestions for the day ahead (basically no chat). Having said that, the chat improved over the next few days - maybe we caught them at a bad time. We had breakfast the following morning, fried eggs, banana bread, delicious dahl, curd and treacle, fruit and toast. We slept in the loft room which was comfortable. The bathroom was a little cramped and there were no supplied guest amenities so bring your own body wash and shampoo/conditioner. Air-con worked a treat and it was a very relaxing and quiet neighbourhood, a 300 rupee tuk tuk into the city. Wifi in the communal area only, beware of the mozzies! Overall not a bad start to our Sri Lankan getaway!
