We stayed 3 nights and we're lucky enough to be upgraded to the Dumas suite, as it is off season. It's a lovely bedroom with balcony, great bathroom and little sitting room off to the side, with strong wifi signal. With no other guests, we got lots of attention, but not too much with Janaka particularly spot on. Food was delicious, and tuktuk driver Anande took us up and down the hill to Fort with plenty of stories. It would be a different place in the high season, but surely just as charming.

Room Tip: Cinnamon suite would be the pick.

Highly recommend

Stayed two nights at start of Sri Lankan holiday with 11, 5 and 3yr-olds - an oasis but so close to the city centre. Very atmospheric colonial house - very spacious bedrooms which were actually suites. Lovely gardens, magnificent pool, monkeys and birds. Food very good an excellent place to chill but easy to walk into town. Great start to a great holiday.

Room Tip: Only has three rooms all overlooking the lovely courtyard and garden

We stayed three nights in the Cinnamon Suite during our recent trip to Sri Lanka. It was amazing. The Sun House is beautiful, food superb and the staff were all fantastic. Our room was gorgeous; and although hot without air con we didn't mind a bit; the lovely room and outside bath more than made up for it.

We were lucky enough to stay for 4 nights in the Cinnamon Suite and as far as style and romance go, this won't be beaten. We aren't the worlds biggest fans of big modern hotels and the charm simply oozes out of this place to the point that you almost prefer the fact that it's not in quite as immaculate a state as other hotels. The staff are great; the dinner and breakfasts are among the best we ate in Sri Lanka, but the crown is certainly the Cinnamon Suite which we both have to rate as the nicest suite we have stayed in. I almost wanted it to rain to give me an excuse to stay there and lose a few hours... You will stay in a hundred hotels but very few will remain with the history and charm of this place . 5 stars .
