In walking distance to the temple of tooth and the udawattakele forest. Down the street is a local bakery where you can get cheap and tasty Sri Lankan breakfast surrounded by nice local people. It seems a bit dirty but still a great experience.
The entire area around the guesthouse is under construction and it's next to a busy road. The lady was not friendly at all. First of all she made me pay in advance and didn't give me enough change in return. The room was full with ants and they didn't provide us with toilet paper. First stay in Sri Lanka so far.
Staff were extremely kınd and helpful. They prepared a specıal meal for me, arranged transportatıon and guıde and even joıned me on my 2 day tour. Each mornıng I was served coffee and made to feel very welcome. There ıs a full kıtchen for quests to use and a spacıous common room.
Close proxımıty to the road resulted ın traffıc noıse and local rooster woke me up early mornıng. The owner may want to consıder buyıng new bed lınens and towels and provıde toılet paper ın the bathroom for us fussy westerners.
