It was great to stay at The Collage House. Very authentic old Sri Lankan house close to the centre by tuk-tuk.
The hosts were great. They introduced us to a Sri Lankan game called Carrom. We had a short stay here but we enjoyed it a lot.
Thank you and the next time you come do visit us
Vali is a fantastic host. We totally felt part of the family during our two nights in her house. We were greeted like old friends on arrival and invited to share a delicious home cooked lunch with the family. This continued with family members telling fascinating local stories, arranging tuc tucs anywhere we wanted to go and generally treating us as well as we could have hoped for
thank you so much for your great review. We really enjoyed spending time with you as well
We stayed here for one night. Unfortunately the room we were given was not in the photos and was very basic and very hot with a window that didn't close properly and a net with holes.
The shower in the evening only had cold water and there was no water at all the following morning which was unfortunate as we had a 9 hour train journey ahead.
Having said this, the family were welcoming,kind and helpful. It was just not for us.
Sorry about it due to the thunderstorm the water was cut off.
It was such an amazing experience. Everyone is friendly and the house is so beautiful. I felt in love with the house and the host was so friendly. She helped us to organise our trip to visit a maximum for cheap. Thank you so much
It was great to have meet all of you. We enjoyed the brief time spent with you all.
I, my husband and my two daughters, we were greeted in a very warm welcome. (website hidden) Valli gave us valuable information on places to visit, tips on where to eat or have a cocktail. We really enjoyed the warm hospitality and availability even when we returned to Colombo for a few hours after a trip to NuwaraElya.
Thank you we really enjoyed your company as well
We really enjoyed our stay at the College House. Valli was a wonderful host who went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. Valli spent a lot of time helping us navigate maps and explaining the sites. Raja spoilt us with dinner and breakfast and made us tea after a long day. We also ventured into the local town with Raja and he was a wonderful guide. The College House has shared bathrooms and is more of a home stay however i would highly recommend staying here.
Thank you Leon
Great place! Very beautiful and very accommodating hostess.
Thank you so much for your wonderful and kind review. It was a delight to host you
So nice to find a place abroad you can call home. It was just like that. Staying at Valli's place was a treat specially Radjha his help has to be mentioned. He is a great guy and help.
Don't expect luxury but a normal home with a nice garden and veranda in the city. Silent. Welcoming. Clean. Simple. Home.

Thank it was wonderful to meet you both and I hope to see your lovely home one day
Great first two nights in Sri Lanka immersing ourselves straight into true Sri Lankan friendly culture. Valli was v informative and even came with us on a guided tour in a Tuk Tuk around Colombo and suggested great bars restaurants etc Rosemary and the caretakerwere brilliant too, their level of service was second to none , thanks! College house was a home of fine colonial architecture maybe plumbing colonial too! But fine! Beds great size very comfy! Easy Tuk Tuk ride to all city sights
Thank you Barbara. I am happy you had a good time in Colombo
