We were not welcomed into the guesthouse at all. The owner, Faeisz barely acknowledged us and his wife (Sue) certainly didn't. This was surprising after travelling for a couple of weeks in Sri Lanka and everywhere else we got warm and friendly welcomes. WHy run a guesthouse if you're not keen on people!
The room was poorly furnished with grubby, stale smelling mosquito net over the bed. There wasn't a view over the town (maybe there was from rooms above us). We'd stayed in Kandy a week earlier in a place with fabulous views (Richmond House). Fan only.
The bathroom was very basic, needing updating and a lick of paint at least. There was nowhere to put toiletries other than on the floor. The old and rusty window mesh had a big hole badly patched with tape.
All in all, a disappointing stay.
However, it has to be said, the evening meal was very good, and it's expected that you share your table with other guests which was one of the plus points, as we met some really nice people.
Also, the bed was quite comfortable.
I wouldn't recommend it.
