Nice owner, great food, very good value. The tuk-tuk guy who helped me out was also great and very honest. Stayed for around 4 or 5 nights in total, really enjoyed it. Also pretty close to Dehiwala zoo which is nice

I was in Colombo in order to apply for an Indian business visa. The location was good in that I was far enough outside Colombo to not feel like I was in a major city, but still it was very accessible by either tuk tuk or public bus (35-45 minutes depending on traffic). As I am a single white woman... More

Good value for money with nice family hosts who provide real help in resolving local needs. 30-45 minutes by tuk-tuk or taxi to the Colombo center depending on traffic and 5 minues to Mount Lavinia beach.
