We found ourselves here quite often. Very friendly staff and delicious food. Calm and fresh environment. We craved some good deserts and a good espresso, and this is the place to really enjoy both in a quite garden.

My fiancee and I stayed at Sunils for 3 days in March 2016 and absolutely loved it. It is a beautiful garden oasis, so peaceful and relaxing. The homemade cakes are delicious and the service is wonderful.. warm, friendly and not pushy at all. Couldn't recommend it enough.

We had a lovely stay at Sunil Garden Guesthouse. First of all, the actual garden/café is beautifully set, like a little oasis in the village. The breakfast was delicious and substantial and the service was excellent. The room we had was quiet, comfortable with lovely decoration and attention to detail. The guest house is actually very quiet at night, safe...

I can assure you this is the best where we stayed in Sri Lanka. European quality is procured by the Dutch lady who runs the guest house. Clean beds, ceilings, water in the rooms, friendly personnel, mosquito net, comfortable mattress, value for money
