“Felt like home”
Reviewed July 13, 2008

Very much relaxing, comfortable; nothing to worry about during my stay. I felt like home as i was at Helga's Folly. Nice and warm people, not too much and comfortable distance they keep all the time; but always willing to support me.

The driver was good, very dedicated and helpful. He showed me around in the botanical garden and tried to respond to my request as much as he could; sudden request to stop at shops and at super market.. Next time I visit... i hope i learn more of the Sri Lankan language to understand more of his explanation on the scenaries that i saw from the car:)

I look forward to seeing you all at the Folly soon!!!
