Amazing rustic Cabañas! Incredible trek too! ”
Fantastic place, locally run with a little bakery too. Cabañas are rustic and cute, with great views of fields and temple. Be careful as they are a little flimsy in places though!

Highly Overrated”
Convenient location to visit Sinharaja Rain Forest
I booked this place because of the positive comments submitted by reviewers. I was visiting with my wife and my brother. Upon visiting the place I was disappointed. First the owner tried to send us to his house instead providing us the rooms we booked. I don't know what his intention was. The rooms were below average and not very clean either. The view and surroundings are not memorable. I must specially mention the food which was bad. The owner bakes bread and other items at his own bakery at the motel. It was not very good. I don't understand why people have said that the food is delicious in their reviews when it is not. Prices for lunch was outrageously high and was abysmal. I'm from Sri Lanka and what he prepared for lunch does not warrant that price. Foreigners should be aware about this. The stay at this place is not a fond memory.

Difficult place to stay”
staff, staff, staff
I'm glad that some people really enjoyed this place, but found the reviews to be misleading. First of all, the staff was very helpful, arranging tours and transportation on a moment's notice, providing food when we needed it. That was the best part of our stay here. We stayed in the two story "cabana", which is a mud hut in need of some repairs. The hut is open to the elements in many places (holes in the walls), the bed is too small to comfortably sleep two people, and although it did cool down a little at night, the room would benefit from the addition of a fan. I wouldn't recommend this place unless you are short (for the bed: we are both 5'10" and didn't fit) and really ready for a rustic experience with wildlife (insects and spiders) in your room. The cabana is also seriously over-priced.

a great place and a very friendly owner”
very friendly owner, great food, cute lodging in natural hut overlooking the ricefields
Sidney is extremely friendly and knows loads about the surrounding rainforest. He is very eco conscious and his huts are great, overlooking a beautiful paddy. It is well equiped with hot water, and a mosquito net. Sidney served us one of our best curries in Sri Lanka and has also lots of good cakes, as the hotel has it's own bakery. This is the best place to come if you are looking for insiders info about the area and rainforest and Sidney also offers projects for travellers who are looking to do voluntary work for the preservation of the rainforest. His hotel will also be expanded with a terrace in the future, overlooking the ricepaddys and a beautiful area to watch the sunset.

A pleasant stay”
The staff (Sidney) was very knowledgable about the local area and pointed out great things to see. The food was great.
We had a great stay. The rooms are very small and rustic but are priced accordingly. The service from the staff was very good.

one of the best places we stayed in whole trip”
Extremely friendly staff with a campaign to protect the rain forest, natural huts with great scenes and atmosphere, bakery inside with delicious products.
We stayed 2 nights. Delicious food in large portions. The owner and the staff is extremely friendly. The rooms are swallowed in nature and they were the most natural rooms that we have stayed.

Sydney's hospitality, the food and being part of a bakery where local people came to buy bread
We enjoyed the location and it being part of a small town and also the relaxed atmosphere helped by Sydney's welcoming style. This could be improved upon by making some simple improvements to the bedrooms eg a tiled shower and warm water in them all and some extra bedding. Thanks to Sydney for a memorable visit

Simple but lovely cabanas and great owner”
Cabanas are special, but simple and have very small bed, the owner is engaged in protecting the rainforest, fantastic rice & curry is served
Everything was fine, but the bed was too small for two persons, especially for tall person like me. Sinharaja is definitely worth visiting.
