This place is around 10mins walk to the shops and around 15mins walk to the start of Adam's Peak. You get some really nice views from the balcony and the restaurant. You also have a nice river right next to the Guesthouse that you can take a dip in. The room and bathroom are spacious and are quite new. Unfortunately...

We arrived in a group of 7. Only needed accomodation for half a night because we wanted to do adams peak. Found a beautiful place, in a small valley next to a river. Very quiet and peaceful. Although we gave them a hard time staff was friendly and organized beer and transport for us. Bathrooms kind of cute with Access...

We had a short stay here to climb Adam's Peak. The location and food were good, but the site was under construction (which made it super noisy) and the decor was quite odd. The shower had only boiling or freezing water, but this may have been due to the construction. It had a lovely view of the mountain, really friendly...

Clean nice double room with mozzie net and clean en-suite. Really lovely location – had balcony/veranda overlooking their lovely garden. It is just off the road down a slope so the view is not of mountain tops but rather their garden and there is a small river that runs along the bottom of it. Really lovely. The food is a...

We stayed here for 2 nights to climb Adams peak. The Sri Lankans who were running it were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We were upgraded when we arrived to a 3 person room for no further charge, really nice with good views and a little balcony. Good food served there. Shower a bit dodgy - sometimes cold.

Clean room and was very spacious. However, the shower was extremely weak so by the time u got into bed you were freezing. Also, the food was not very nice. The dinner was not good quality and the breakfast just about edible. But, the overall feel of the place is lovely and the man in charge is really funny and...

We were pleasantly surprised to find the White House guest house in Dalhousie. We arrived to town late at night without a place to stay and they gave us a really nice room overlooking the river. The room was very clean, had nice wood paneling, and a full frame mosquito net over the bed. We even had our own private...

the hotel is located directly at the river with a green garden. the place is also good to start to walk up at adams peak. But be carefull the food in the restaurant is overpriced and the lunch packs we ordered were also exorbitant expensive! When we paid after our stay there things on the bill we had never ordered....

In terms of the room and restaurant, this was a good base for Adams Peak. The food was nice and the rooms relatively clean. We were pretty disappointed however in the customer service. While we were there the power went out which is understandable given the remote location. When paying our bill however we requested that we pay less for...

We stayed here for one night in order to climb Adams Peak and it was good. I was nervous given some previous comments on here but actually the accommodation was far better than expected. If you're used to budget travel in Nepal / India / Sri Lanka this place is pretty good by those standards. Yes the room is a...
