George and his family do very well filling and promoting this hard to find hideaway. And they deserve their success because they put a lot of effort into it. Any request is promptly attended to by the very efficient and business-minded George - who also runs a travel agency, named after his delightfully bubbly and welcoming daughter Michelle. Mrs George is always quietly smiling and serves great food. Her assistant/maid too is always smiling, fast and strong! The whole family really made the 5 of us feel 'at home' and cared for.
While the house is about 30 mins from Kandy it is easy enough to get in to the city by btuk-tuk followed by train or bus, The GH is well located for the wonderful Botanical Garden and some delightful lesser visited temples in the area.
Although the house is surrounded by greenery, with a river at the bottom of the garden, the house is dry, fresh, very clean and welcoming. I had the lowest floor room - perhaps less spacious than those on the main floor - but still it was comfortable, well appointed and good to sleep in.
