This was a very friendly, family home. The room was clean and comfortable, as was the bathroom and it had a great view. I was invited to cook with our hostess and learned to make wild mango curry and coconut sambal.

We stay there for three nights, and we enjoyed it so much. Place is very clean, owners are very helpful and so nice. They arranged trip to World´s End view in Horton Plants national park, and rent a scooter. We recommend rent a scooter everywhere in Sri Lanka, it is very easy, you don´t need passport or driving license, just...

The most horrible room we have ever stayed. The room is too small and balcony is unsafe. Room and toilet were not cleaned properly. Soap & toilet paper roll were used ones. Lucky we had shower gel. I don't think the bed sheets are changed or cleaned regularly and they are more like rugs. I'd say an agent should visit...

Bear in mind that this place is budget accommodation and so a four star review is based on the fact it is "very good" as this type of accommodation option. Our room was small and on the ground floor, but definitely the better of the other two as we had the view overlooking the hills whereas the other rooms on...

My room was pleasant and clean (although the bathroom floor was permanently wet) but the highlight of the house had to be the stunning views from the living room. The host family were very friendly offering a spare jacket for a sunrise walk, a charger for my phone when mine broke and lots of travelling tips for my trip. Dinner...

We were really surprised, after reading such good reviews before booking, to arrive at White Home to find our room extremely unclean. The toilet was unflushed, with seat still up, the bathroom floor was wet and muddy and there were old bars of soap left with pubic hairs attached. The bathroom clearly hadn't even been looked at after the guest...

I've spent only one night in White Home, but it was a very pleasant stay. The owner picked me up at the train station, my room spotless and the cooking was delicious. I've even got a discount when buying some tea in Haputale :)

We stayed at White Home just one night as we were transiting through. The positives for us: They picked us up from the train station for free. The family have 3 girls and 1 son and they were all delightful and made the place feel very homely. The food was really really good and the views amazing too. The room...
