My husband and I stayed here for LKR4500 including breakfast/ AC. We had a room with double bed and attached bathroom. A very typical guest house if you have travelled through Sri Lanka, quite basic but clean and nice enough to spend a few nights. The view of the rice fields is lovely from the communal area outside, and its only a 5-10min walk into town. Although the town itself is quite small.
Breakfast was a mix of hoppers, fruit, roti, marmalade, omelette and tea on the three days we ate there. Our dinner was LKR550 per person which we didn't mind paying because the options in town are not many, plus we didn't feel up for walking at night into town. I really liked some of the food, and asked them to make it for me again, which they happily did. We got served chicken, salad, rice and two other vegetables plus fruit (buy drink separate). I think thats not so bad for the price charged, though it depends on your budget, you can get a single plate of food in town for LKR300, but there really is not a lot of variety so we quite liked eating at the guesthouse.
We had a really good time with the family, they were engaged (only if you want to be engaged - you can spend your time out or in your room if you would rather not make conversation). We really enjoyed this, and talked about all sorts of different things. They were so welcoming and loving towards me and my husband.
We found Milton's tour price to be expensive and did shop around to find alternate prices in town as we were on a budget. When we told the family that we got cheaper options, they matched the price for us.
I have read other reviews where people are quite upset about their large bill at the end of the trip or expensive tour prices. That surprised me because the family was very transparent and straight forward about how much things would cost. So when you get your bill there are no surprises.
I'd happily recommend this place to others, and if I ever went back I would stay there.
My only complaint was the slow wifi, which is a common occurrence in Sri Lanka.
