Annette L. Couples Australia, May 26, 2014
A lovely place to stay close to the city

Charming decor, charming staff, the ridgback dog called Bruce
The House of Arts was the perfect place to spend the first and last nights of my trip. Close to Colombo, short walk to the beach, plenty of shops and food close by. Our room was clean and comfortable. I loved the style, lots of art and books, and painted flourishes. The big ridgeback named Bruce keeps watch and barks to announce the arrival of visitors, no need to be afraid though he's gentle and eager to make friends. The owners were lovely and very generously allowed me to leave my bag for a few nights so I could travel by bus & train without too much hassle. They also let me check out late on the day I was flying out which was much appreciated.

Super fast check in

Very friendly owner, beautiful deco, very homey
It was really pleasant. Me and my travel buddy had to leave early to catch the train at Mount Lavinia station and the owner was very apologetic that we're not able to have breakfast as we're leaving too early, but made sure we had some tea before we leave. And the tea was really good! The place is about 10-20mins walk to Mount Lavinia Station.

An unexpected firework of arts!

The fine and very tasteful decoration of house and garden with artwork, the very sympatic host who is a real sir and a great breakfast
We entered another world - it was just fantastic. If someone is out for art, culture and a high level talks then this is the place to stay! It is not easy to find, but this is also an advantage... ;)
