"excellent in every respect"
It is impossible to speak too highly of my stay in this excellent accommodation. The owner provides a great choice of kitchen equipment, a very comfortable double bed, a good tv, an outdoor area that catches the sun but includes areas of shade, double sliding full length windows open onto a rear garden, and all within a quiet quarter of Colombo that is a 200-250 rupee taxi drive from the very centre of the city (ie less than a couple of pounds sterling).
On the guest's suggestion the kitchen lighting and power supply to various appliances were improved.
The guest left behind his chess board for the use of other guests. I have now supplemented it with a Scrabble Board and two packs of playing cards.
