Getting what you pay for!

Don't know as we never got to stay there.
Could not say, we were taken to another hotel because the drains were blocked...or so they said. Were they overbooked? We were taken miles away to another hotel associated with this group. If this is Agoda service, I will go back to Very dissatisfied.

Great but a tad pricey

Cleanliness, manager, wi fi
The manager was great. Good advice, particularly concerning my lost luggage. Only 2 concerns were the dark lane it is down- tuk tuk driver from airport struggled to find it, and very dark at night. Also a little pricey for Sri Lanka I thought. But beautiful accommodation

Nicely decorated boutique guesthouse in quiet loca

Clean well maintained room with appealing decor
This lovely guesthouse has only 4 rooms, and is located in a quiet neighborhood amongst some very palatial looking homes. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Great location, very central

Old world ambience, helpfulness of staff was great, close to good cafe further down the road on same block
Two main issues. 1. Mix up with Agoda booking, hotel had no knowledge of my booking. Fortunately I had a printout of the Agoda voucher so they honoured my voucher but some other poor guest arriving later had to found a room elsewhere. 2. Wifi was intermittent and unreliable

overally a good stay....very conveniently located

Overall a good stay. The guest house has a lot of character and old features that the owner has maintained even after renovation. The place is very conveniently located which is why I chose it.☺we stayed in the "pavillion" room in the top floor.the rooms are of a good standard although a little outdated. The staff were very obliging and provided a good standard of service. They were polite and courteous. Cleanliness however could be worked on. The beds and bed linen were clean however, The door knobs, room corners , television etc were caked with layers of grimy dust. The phone was a breeding haven for bacteria. The phone was actually quite disgusting. The bathroom needs a major overhaul. Very old and loose ventilation at all...not very clean either. The bath tub had black spots and a grimy disgusting drain. The shower basin hadnt been cleaned ..u could see the oily grime on the sides of the the shower basin had a clogged up drain. Generally...this place is good for a quick stop in colombo.
