There are not a lot of budget places in this area so the choices are limited. We liked the price and hoped we could get good advice from the owner regarding visiting sites in the area as so many places are tied into the highest cost excursions.
The manager, Heidi, was indeed nice and pointed to a neat walk behind their place that led to a lake and a place where elephants give rides but she never pushed anything on us so that was appreciated. The room was pretty basic but nothing to complain about and the garden was a nice setting.
Our problem was with dinner which was not worth what we paid compared to almost anywhere else we stayed in Sri Lanka this past several weeks. I had noodles with prawns for 900 SR and it was not very tasty and the "prawns" were about as small as could be. My wife had fried chicken for 850 and the two very small pieces of chicken were dry and tough with mostly bone and skin.
I don't begrudge guest houses simply trying to rise to the higher price standard that areas close to major attractions support, but all I can say is that our evening meal and the breakfast with one egg in the morning was a major disappointment.
