Firstly, this is not home stay , it is poorly hotel! Very old and not clean. When you book it, there is other person answer your requests, not hotel staff.
Hotel are bot same as on photos. Furniture is a trash , towels looks like ten years in use.
No comfortable beds.
But this hotel still have one good point:friendly staff , mr. Santha , a best waiter and administrator I met in Sri Lanka! Very interesting person and he provide service like a stars hotel!
This hotel have great view from balcony. At night you can see the stars and at morning you can see monkey family.
Good location but we have some problems and spend half hour for find it on the top of the hill near mosque.
Overpriced restaurant menu, but still good service.
My family and i (7 adults and 3 kids) stayed 2 nights at the guest house. The guesthouse is located, only 10 mins from Kandy, in a really beautiful area, with view over the mountains and a valley. We had a whole flat, with four rooms, kitchen and a small balcony for ourself. The rooms are pretty basic, so don't expect much. There were a few bugs in the rooms, and the kitchen was quite greasy - especially the fridge. But considering the price i would say it's a good deal.The host is really friendly, and don't hesitate to call her if you need help with transport, tours etc.
I had a nice stat at this hotel!
Friendly host that Will provide guests with good food and information about the region. Arranges trips and tuktuk rides for everyone.
Location in Kandy is not so good but the host and his son will composate this with excellent service

I am a busy house wife (ex-travel consultant in UK and in Sri Lanka) running around the city with my 2 lovely kids for schooling and their extra activities. My husband is a CEO of leading software company in Sri Lanka and we both enjoy accommodating guests and our passion is to have bigger project in the future..as in to run a small cosy hotel or a classy BandB.
We love to travel around Sri Lanka and can give you loads of tips. There is plenty of things to do in the Colombo city as well.
