The bed is the most comfortable I've experienced in 3 months of Sri Lankan travelling. The bathroom works, which given several recent experiences is...

My partner and I stayed here for two nights. We were a bit hesitant at first as some of the employees at Lakshmi wait out the front to encourage you come and check the rooms. Luckily we did - we bargained to 2000 rupee per night with our own bathroom and comfortable beds. Although the room was pretty average looking...

We had to show them booking snapshots etc. We got in the room we booked after a lot of faffing. Large room with big double and a single bed. Large bathroom.

My friend and I arrived very late a night. We booked over the phone in a tuk tuk (buses weren't running anymore) on our way from Colombo. The guest house is up a steep hill grouped with many other guest houses. The family is extremely nice, and we had great conversations with them. The owner went to university in the...

We stayed here for 2 nights during the Esala Perahera in Kandy. Looking at the prices other people got during the same period, we got screwed... we were told 50 dollars a night was the normal price during this period, for a double room with shared bathrooms! That was well above our price range but we were so in need...

We arrived in Lakshmi without a booking, but soon found it a warm place to stay. The new owner just re-opened the guest house (which existing for many years already) six days before we arrived. Looking at the reviews, it can only be considered a good thing that the guest house now has a new owner. Ajith has live in...
