      I had a great time at Palm Nest. I was looking for confort and a nice place to stay after a long trip and I found it at Palm nest. they have a very beautiful home, really nice and special architecture. Anomi, the host, really helped me in anyway she could. it is outside Colombo, so you have to take transportation to the city, but was very easy with uber and it makes it a really calm place to stay. I highly recommend if you're looking for some resting time after a long trip or busy day in town.

      Comfortable guest house”

      Staff attitude, reception and help to arrange transportation

      We had a very comfortable stay at the guest house. The owners who run the place are always available to help, giving us tips and arranging drivers to take us around. When we needed milk for our baby a little late in the night, they even offered to drive us to the shops in their personal car. Though we had a goof-up in our booking (our receipt mentioned price inclusive of breakfast, but their records mentioned otherwise) the owners didn't charge us for it. When we realised and offered to pay, they refused to take any money. A pleasant experience overall and would stay again.

      We really had a great time at Palm nest. The owner of the house is really kind and warm. She likes to help people and has a big heart. At the same time, you can also talk about your travel schedule in Sri Lanaka. She is a good help! Rooms are very clean and it is located in a very cozy area. You can definitely relax. You can also experience real Sri Lanka food for your breakfast. Home away from home!! Thank you and we will come back soon!!!

      The room and house. Anoma and her husband. Quiet location.

      Anoma & her husband were fantastic and very friendly and helpful with organising a taxi to collect us from the airport and tuk-tuk drivers into town. They have extensive local knowledge for tourists and what to see in their area. We paid extra for Anoma's breakfasts which were some of the tastiest food we had in Sri Lanka. Would definitely recommend staying here and look forward to our next visit.

      A nice family hotel”

      The couple that ran it were very helpful

      Palm nest was a little out the way, e.g. it would be at least a 20 minute walk to the main road so we depended on tuk tuks which were fairly priced. The couple who ran the hotel were very helpful with lots of suggestions. Breakfast was fair- $5 for coconut rice, fruit, fish, juice and coffee. Our room was in the yard, comfortable and clean- it had little open windows- would have benefited from a mozzie net, also couldn't really turn the lights on at night for too long as it would have attracted insects in. The couple were friendly and helpful and welcoming. Their house was very stylish. We didn't enjoy the city of Colombo there was nothing really to do and lots of people hassling you. Hotels had the best restaurants.

      Exorbitantly priced breakfast, rude hostess”

      Nice house, clean rooms

      Disappointing. Basic English breakfast (home made toast, omelette, fruit & juice) was exorbitantly priced. Later figured that top end restaurants charge less. Location is remote and no restaurants around to have breakfast from outside. When asked about the high prices the hostess took real offence and went to the extent of telling us, we came on our own and not invited. We even wrote a decent review on the guest book as the request for it came earlier that checkout bill.

      Anoma the host made you feel at home, I'm a neat freak and her house is modern and clean, I felt really safe as a solo traveller staying there

      Overall my stay at palm nest b&b was one of my best stays in Sri Lanka and I stayed at both budget b&bs and luxury resorts. It really is worth staying out of town of Colombo to experience the real Sri Lankan culture. It is only 15 mins by tuk tuk to Colombo city centre. Anoma, the host she organises everything for you. She is so helpful and caring, was like staying at a really cool aunty's place. The house boosts much serenity and contemporary furnishings and design, I stayed in the loft room in the garden, the bathroom is downstairs and has an awesome spiral stairs that leads you to the bedroom, it was like sleeping outdoors as no aircon and there were openings in the walls for fresh air (if this is your kinda thing). The food and room was simple and basic but Anoma always made sure you were well fed and slept well.

      Wir haben im Februar drei Tage im Palm Nest gewohnt und wurden sehr liebevoll und freundlich empfangen. Das Haus ist ein architektonisches Kleinod, sehr modern und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Besitzer haben uns bei Fragen immer geholfen. Die Fahrten mit dem befreundeten Tuk-Tukfahrer zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten Colombos und die Taxifahrt zum Flughafen wurden problemlos für uns organisiert. Wir haben uns durchweg wohl gefühlt und werden bei unserem nächsten Besuch in Colombo sicherlich wieder dort wohnen.
