However when it comes to comfort level, there are few issues. First one is the street...

As always in Sri Lanka the people are very friendly and helpful. If you get a room towards the pool in the top floor you will enjoy a beautiful view on you private balcony. There is a lot of dogs in the area which make quite some noise. The rooms where ok, not super tidy but alright for one night....

My girlfriend and I bought flights for a three week holiday to Sri Lanka without booking anything further than our first night in Colombo. By sheer luck we ended up meeting Mr Linton from Blue Haven Tours. In short, we left the Colombo train station with our dream holiday program booked at a very affordable price. The trip was to...

We were happy to find the friendly manager, Chunchie again who took care of us very well. He asked us directly what we would like to eat and explained how every thing would be prepared. We had...

The place is 1.5-2km from city center in a quiet location. The view from the rooms is on the beautiful hill. It's very peaceful. The stuff is very helpful and nice. The location allows for a 25-30min walk right to the city center- Kandy lake. Rooms are nice, restaurant is good. Nice place outside the very busy center.

The tour that was organised for us via the Blue Haven Guest House's owner was almost too good to be true and it didn't seem that pricy. We did get to see everything we wanted and the driver brought us everywhere we wanted and waited patiently. However we did feel a little taken aback when our driver asked us to...
