We selected this guest house for the first few nights after arriving in Sri Lanka. It proved a great base for excursions in the greater Colombo region. Staff was very friendly and helpful, breakfast was good. The family room is very large, but somewhat noisy because it is on the street side and the windows are taped, which makes staying...
