We stayed here for our first night is SL. The bed was good but the room not perfectly clean. The breakfast is superb and we even skipped our lunch after that. Only negative point is that the price is maybe a little bit to high compared with some other places. But I would recommend the place.

We stayed for a total of four nights in March of 2014.   Our experience was mixed.  I cannot really comment on value for money as we didn't check other Colombo venues. It isn't fair to compare prices in Colombo with other locations any more than you would compare Manhattan with upstate New York. On the good side.  You stay...

This guesthouse is well located, in a quiet area. The house is charming, colonial ambiance, nice garden and our room was large and clean. Breakfast was good. But the room was also basic and quite dark and depressing. As there is not much choice in Colombo for average budget, maybe it is the reason why it looks like not much...

We arrived around 4 am thanks to a delayed flight and everyone was, of course asleep. We had to wake up the owner, who took us to our room. If it hadn't been 4 am, we would not have accepted this room. Although it was clean, it was very dingy and depressing, and the air conditioning was so noisy we...

Large rambling house, lots of airy open spaces to relax, looking towards large garden yard. Room a little cramped but fine and clean. Within walking distance to numerous craft shops. Away from crowded noisy city, but only a 10 minute tuk-tuk drive away if you must. Quiet suburban location. Good brakfasts. Recommended

I think some efforts have been made to decorate some of the rooms the linen and towels were not very clean. We also had smoke coming into our room from somewhere. I woke up in the night smelling it and all our clothes and bags absorbed the smell. Even after a day on the balcony of our next hotel and...

Stayed at Wayfarer's Inn at the start and end of our trip and overall was really happy with our stay and felt very comfortable. The family whose house it is are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The house is a beautiful old thing, amazing back yard with lots of squirrels running around and the live in goose who loves listening...

This place is an excellent choice in Colombo. The rooms could do with some sprucing up, but they are spacious, clean, cooled by AC and fan and, for the price (low mid-range), incredibly well equipped: fridge, hair dryer, kettle, wifi, comp water, tea and coffee. There are three roomy, common spaces, including two lovely porches that open onto the large...
