    The location was good, the staff was really nice and thoughfull. The size of the room was really good. We woke up early to do a visit and see the sunrise and he gave us a nice breakfast pack on the day before.

    The sheets were very stained. The staff was only one person and it wasn't easy to get in touch with sometimes, because he wasn't always at the property and sometimes didn't answer is phone

    We liked our stay very much. The owner and the staff did everything to make our stay comfortable. The breakfast was good: kind of egg, sometimes yoghurt, always a lot of fruit, butter, jam, coffee and tea and a juice. The room is spacious and clean. They change towels when you want/need. You clean the room yourself which was no problem. The garden is nice, you can put tables/chairs there, and also our breakfast was served in the garden. We saw two types of monkeys, grey hornbills, peacock, two kinds of squirles while eating, that was fun! The owner arranged a safari jeep: Reasonable price included the tickets, pick up at home and return. They know where the elephants are and in which of the two parks. I think you can use his advice. Tour was good. We saw hundreds of elephants, peacocks, Eagle eating, kingfisher, buffaloes, 'crocodile' (=varaan). Great trip. The rock is within walking distance or can take a tuk-tuk. Owner can help. For the other mountain you need a bicycle/transport. It is cheaper, more adventurous and you can see the rock from there. The owner will advice you. For this climb you need better shoes + the last 20 meters are 'difficult'. (You need to pass that area before you can see the Sirigiya rock) For eating we went mostly to the restaurant adviced by the owner: 1.3 km walk. (We stayed in july: good weather, good time for elephants. It is rainy season, but we did not see any... )

    At all it was very good, especially because of the owner and the lady working at the property. -a hot water pot could be a good idea for the rooms. (to make coffee or tea) That said: they brought hot water and more coffee when we were sitting in the garden!! -a small fridge could be good.

    The facilities were spotlessly clean, the bathroom was the best we had in Sri Lanka. And the location was AMAZING! A short walk into town, but in a quiet spot amongst the trees and birds, so lovely! Oh and our host helped us to organise the most amazing safari tour to Kaudulla NP. It was incredible! Would highly recommend that you book through him! 10/10 would recommend this place to anyone, and I’ll stay here again next time I visit!

    Nothing, honestly everything was so great!
