Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Très bel endroit, très confortable. Chambres spacieuses, dans l'ensemble, très jolie piscine intégrée dans un écrin de verdure. De très beaux oiseaux nous enchantent. Nous avons été accueillis par Jack et son épouse comme si nous les connaissions déjà. Font preuve d'une très grande bienveillance et en même temps de beaucoup d'humour (charmant). Veillent à notre bien-être. Sont de bons conseils quant aux visites à réaliser, aux endroits incontournables, aux déplacements en touk-touk….etc…. Très bon petit-déjeuner, sri Lankais ou anglais.

We were one of the first guests at this newly opened guesthouse and cannot recommend it highly enough. The hosts, Jacky and Jim, originally from England but who have lived in Sri Lanka for many years, are incredibly welcoming and friendly such that it was like spending a night at a friend's house. Jack's is a short distance inland from Talpe - 5 minutes by tuk-tuk - in a lovely, peaceful, little village surrounded by paddy fields and jungle. There are two guest rooms. Both have been freshly decorated and fitted out. The beds are super comfortable, the rooms are spotlessly clean, air-conditioned (although we didn't need to use it) and are very well equipped - including having USB charging points. Outside is a walled garden with a small swimming pool and a shady covered area for lounging, eating and sharing a bottle of wine :) In the evening Jim and Jacky arranged a tuk-tuk to take us down to nearby Unawatuna which is a lively beach where we were spoilt for choice for restaurants. They also offered us a Sri Lankan mobile phone to take with us that was pre-programmed with the numbers of a few local tuk-tuks to make getting home easy. As it happened this was not something we needed but I think it is a fabulous idea for travellers who are not familiar with the area. Breakfast was a real treat - having been in Sri Lanka ourselves for some time now, being offered the possibility of a 'Full English" was an opportunity we could not pass on. Set us up for the whole day... Overall we were really pleased that we stayed at Jack's and will definitely come again. Get in quick before they realise what a gem they have and put their prices up.
