We felt very welcome at this place. Sunil welcomed us upon arrival with a welcome drink and asked what we wanted for dinner even though we arrived after 8 pm. Sunil helped us in any way possible. Elephant riding, meals and transport to the next place. Thank you Sunil for the excellent service! And also thanks for the great food - we loved it!

We stayed for two nights right after arriving in Sri Lanka. Very quiet and peaceful place to recuperate after a long flight.
Central to many trips and excursions. We went on a safari early the first morning, not many animals to see, but great way to start the day.
Very friendly and attentive staff, Sunil is just the friendliest you can wish for.
Rooms are spacious and clean.
A bargain for the price ($35 a night).

Friendly helpful staff, fantastic dinners cooked with care, excellent breakfast, close to bus stop, close to Sigiriya and national parks where elephants and other wildlife can be seen. The hosts will arrange trips and taxis for you. You should stay here for sure !

First impressions were favourable, when they sent someone to pick us up from the train station without being asked. Staff continued to be helpful throughout our stay, arranging a driver to take us to Sigiriya and other sites.
Rooms were large and clean with chairs for sitting on the veranda outside.
The food was tasty and portions were generous.

This place is not so bad, the rooms are spacious, a/c'd and comfy. We arrived very late and they guys were very accommodating which was great. Unfortunately, one of our rooms had a leaking toilet and neither of our rooms had working showers or hot water - hence my pretty harsh review. Think the basics of hot water and a working toilet are not too much to ask for! Breakfast wasn't so good either really, so that made our decision that we wouldn't eat there in the evening. The location though was fine, great for the surrounding area of Sigiriya etc.
