We were lucky enough to get a room at the Haven for our last night before flying home, and we were really glad we did. John and Shyamali are such wonderful hosts and they really do take pride in providing for their guests, which made the stay feel special. The room was very spacious with a huge comfortable bed, aircon,...

We choosed the Colombo Haven since we need an early Check-in and that guesthouse didn't charge a full night for that. Moreover, they organized an airport-pick-up for us. The guesthouse has 4 rooms, of which each has its own bathroom now. The breakfast-table (for all guests) is located directly next to the kitchen and Mr. Jon is happy to get...

Dear Marie L, Thanks for your review. We are sorry to hear about your troubles with the tour.
