What a happy surprise to find a clean and attractive guest house in Sri Lanka. This place is situated on the side of a hill on a road beyond the Temple of the Tooth and is walking distance into town. The nicest rooms face the road and have a view across the tree tops below. These rooms have balcony seating in front but there are pleasant public lounge areas on each floor even if you have an inside room.
Our room was bright and had tiled floor, wooden furniture, air-con and a queen sized bed with a 9 inch thick mattress and nice linen. The bathroom was convenient and the water was hot. The rooms do not have television. There was free wifi but it was a bit iffy. The staff were friendly and helpful and responded promptly to requests.
Having found such comfortable accommodation it would be too much to expect great food. There was nothing wrong with the food; it was just a bit simpler than most places up north. The breakfast was a standard juice, fruit, egg, toast/butter/ jam and coffee, repeated. It was well worth the uninspired breakfast for the lovely room however.
The staff feed the local macaques. They do not suffer from shyness so it is unwise ever to leave the room door open. If you are eating in a public area, be watchful or you may be feeding the monkeys before you make a conscious decision to do so.
This was the nicest guest house room of the eleven that we stayed in whilst in Sri Lanka..
