Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The white room was a perfect little stopover after a trip around Sri Lanka. The room was very neatly appointed. It is close to the centre of Colombo. We took a tuk-tuk spent the early evening shopping and the night in a really good fish restaurant called Lagoon. Gayathri very helpfully arranged a taxi to collect us to go to the airport for the following morning. Would recommend.

    Response from Gayathri:

    Thanks ed for your nice words. It's been a nice experience having you and thanks for staying with us. You are welcome at our place anytime.

  • Gayathri is a lovely host, very helpful and communicative in the lead up to my arrival.

    The room is very comfortable and situated in calm part of Colombo, a short tuk tuk ride from Fort station. A perfect place to rest in the city before heading off to explore the country.

    I'll be staying with her again before I leave on my return flight.

  • This is a great place to stay if you want to explore Colombo for a couple of days. The room is clean and comfortable and breakfast is available at just 10 minutes notice. Gayathri and her husband made sure we had everything we needed and Gayathri is a great host, making it a point to chat with, and get to know her guests. We even needed to stay back another night and that was arranged without a problem. Thanks for a great stay!

    Response from Gayathri:

    Thanks for your lovely review. It was our pleasure to have you.
    Thanks for your thoughtful note and I am glad that you had a nice experience. Take care.

  • The place is situated in Colombo 07, close to all mayor attractions. The room and Gayathri's house is lovely and it is absolutely quiet. With her excellent road description it was easy to find her place. Gayathri is a very nice, open minded and very helpful person and I have enjoyed my stay at her place.

    Response from Gayathri:

    Thanks. Melani. It was a pleasure to host you. Happy to have you back. Have a great holiday.

  • Gayathri made me feel extremely welcome from the start... Even with my arrival being extremely late in the evening - I was made to feel welcome, safe and secure.

    Located in a beautiful suburb of Colombo, the Charming White Room is a great location - close enough to see all the sights but far enough away from the hustle & bustle. I loved sitting on the little porch in the morning - looking out over the mango tree - very peaceful.

    Gayathri was just lovely - could have talked to her for hours. She was so friendly & helpful. I really felt like we were two old friends catching up over a fantastic breakfast together.

    Would have no hesitations at all at recommending Gayathri & her Charming White Room.

    Response from Gayathri:

    It was a pleasure to meet you. Thanks for a lovely hosting experience. Please come back if you happen to be traveling again. Take care.

  • Gayathri was very welcoming and attentive to us, especially that we woke up her in the early morning when we arrived.
    She also let us sleep in her daughter's playroom since it was 3 or 4 am when we arrived.This was very kind of her.
    She really a great host and took time to know you and discuss with you as well as her husband.

    Her place is a great place to stay if you want to discover Colombo it's not so far from main sights and far enough from city noises.The room is lovely, well decorated and warming with places to chill out.

    I truly recommend her place if you want to visit Colombo.

    Response from Gayathri:

    Florence it was a lovely experience meeting the two of you. thank you for your appreciative words. It make all our efforts worthwhile. Love to see you again. Take Care.

  • We found Gayathri and family very friendly and warm and felt quite at ease talking to them. Their little daughter Amaya is very cute. The location is in a residential area and is a good base in Colombo.

    We enjoyed the breakfast which was tasty and varied.

    All in all, we had a pleasant stay at Gayathri's.

    Response from Gayathri:

    It was great having you and frank. You are welcome anytime. All the best and Take Care.

  • Our stay with Gayathri was the perfect start to our trip to Sri Lanka. She arranged a taxi collection from Colombo Airport for us, which was very reasonable with a good driver, who dropped us off efficiently at her lovely house in a quiet area of the city. It is well located to get to all the main sights and Gayathri recommended some excellent restaurants and places to visit nearby which were really good. The room itself is very comfortable, with en suite bathroom and a nice balcony overlooking the mango tree in the back garden. We really enjoyed our time chatting to Gayathri over the delicious Sri Lankan breakfast she provided. She is a very interesting with many stories to tell and a great host. Just wish we could have had more time to chat before we moved on, but we hope to be back next time we're in Colombo. Thanks Gayathri!
