We had an excellent stay at The Sun House. I like the fact that it's away from the quite touristy Fort area (about a fifteen-minute walk, I'd say) and it's in a very quiet and secluded part of town.
We had a standard room that opened out on to the main veranda. Whilst a bit small, both my wife and I loved the quirky and homely decoration. A thermos of cold water was provided, along with mosquito spray, incense, maps and various magazines to read. Nice touches all. The shower set up was a bit strange though, and often the whole bathroom got quite wet. Something for management to look at maybe.
We had dinner one evening which was fine (the prawn starter was especially good), but not amazing. I also felt that cocktails were a little overpriced at 800LKR++. Breakfast was excellent, and I loved the fresh coffee, fruit salad and chilli eggs!
The staff were very friendly and were willing to talk or leave you alone, depending on your preference. I sometimes think that service was just a bit too casual though, though perhaps that is part of this place's charm.
Overall, I don't think you'll regret choosing The Sun House!
