Vallie is a very kind and helpful host，thanks for the tea and her travel and dining tips. And the house is clean and lovely，we had a very great time there. I may recommend my friends come and stay here in Comlombo！
Thank you very much it was very nice to have hosted a nice couple like you both
The host was really friendly and helpful. When we arrived we got a tea and a warm welcome by the owner. However, the guest house is a little bit far away for tourists and around the guest house is quite nothing. You always need a TukTuk to get somewhere and front door is locked. So you always need to knock on the door and wait for someone open for you (unless you get the key for the lock, like we got). The rooms are not possible to lock. Remember it's a college house and not a guest house. However, we would recommend to stay at this place, if you don't need to be in the city itself. Even if you want to go, you can take a TukTuk and be there very fast.
Thank you for your review. The front door is kept locked for security reasons and that is why we give our guests their own key.
A cool little oasis in Colombo with a very friendly and helpful host.
Thank you Christopher. Will keep the aircon in mind
Valli's place was an absolute dream to stay at - the house is full of character, and gave us the sense of stepping back into time. Perfect for anyone wishing to get away from modern life for a bit. Valli was also a gracious host, staying up for us (we arrived late on Thursday night), and helping us out with everything - from booking a taxi to Galle, to offering great recommendations for restaurants and places to go. She was also really helpful when we needed a place to leave our bags for half-day, and she didn't hesitate to offer her place to us for that as well.
Thanks Valli for making our stay at Sri Lanka so nice - definitely planning to stay here again :)
Thank you very much it was wonderful to host two charming and warm people. do come back again soon
Valli's place is fantastic for anyone arriving "fresh" off the plane. She gave us a warm welcome despite a very early check in and made us feel at home. Valli and her team made our transition to the Sri Lankan culture very smooth, giving us local tips and recommendations.
The room was large and had a huge and comfortable bed and our own bathroom. It was lovely to be able to sit out on the comfortable sofas on the veranda, and look out onto the garden.
Many thanks to Valli and we recommend a stay at the College House.
Thank you Sarah it was really nice to meet you and have a great holiday in Sri Lanka. Do come back
Highly recommended! Good location, clean room, big bed (for a tall guy like me) and a very helpfull and friendly host. Berber and Martin.
Thank you it was great to host you both
We arrived at the college house hot and tired from a long flight and there was Valli at 1.30 in the morning with hot sweet tea and a kindly smile. We left two nights later early in the morning and there was Valli with hot sweet tea and a kindly smile telling the taxi driver what to do. Valli is a perfect host charming and generous welcoming and full of great tips and directions. Her suggestions were fabulous and we felt looked after.the house is full of character and charm and it was an absolute pleasure to spend time there. Thank you valli!
Thank you for your extremely kind review. It was a pleasure to host you and your family and get to know you all. Have a great holiday in Sri Lanka and do come back soon. Always welcome.
We spent our 1st night in Sri Lanka in Valli and Faouzy's place and it will be certainly one of the best moment of our trip. The house is nice as well as the garden. They were super friendly and willing to help. They spent a lot of time to assist us to start our trip in the best possible way. Finally we had couple of drinks at night and a nice breakfast in the morning making this few hours with them memorable and extremely pleasant. I hope to see them soon and highly recommend anyone to go to their place!
Thank you. It was great having you. Enjoyed your company
Valli was friendly n accomodating. She offered shower facilities for free should we want to refresh ourselves after a three days road trip, and before we leave for the airport. We didnt take the offer as we were about just in time for our flight.
I was, however, disappointed to note that the booking was for a room only, when AirBnB's confirmation showed that I have booked the entire home. Our host had to prepare another room in the middle of the night of our arrival, n we had to pay for the additional room.
I have wished to have the liberty to explore the beautiful colonial house. But as the hosts are living in the same premises, we restricted our movements to the first floor.
