"the worst place we stayed in Sri Lanka"

This tiny tiny little bungalow in the grounds of a bigger house was the worst place we stayed out of 5 rentals in Sri Lanka. There was rodent excrement over all the dishes and the entire kitchen area… More

I wish to deny the vindictive comments by this reviewer. We have no rodents, and she did not make this claim in her email to me, but obviously made it up as she was writing her review. Please note she did not complain that Gate cottage was 1. Dirty
2. The linen was dirty and not up to standard
3. All the necessary utensils, cutlery, stove, fridge, furniture,etc. was not available
4. Hot water was not available at all times
5. The swimming pool was dirty.
6. The beds were uncomfortable
7. Mosquito nets were available, and air conditioning if needed.
This customer was paying £10 per person per night. She pleaded poverty so she did not have to pay the security deposit, which she knew from the very beginning she had to pay. If as she alleges I asked her personal questions why did she not tell me there and then to mind my own business.

I did not reply to this review sooner because I was waiting to get an email from my house keeper in Sri Lanka. I enclose a copy of the main part received today.
"This is reply for that e mail.
I didnt tell anything about you or your business, with her,Just she is telling in her mind. I KNOW MY SELF House was clean,there are not have any dirty or rubbish. Garden was clean. But sea was ruff, Just she is telling only.
But when they left the house our maid went to clean. Then when she finish to clean she told me there was 2 bath towels was missing.I dont know what happen to that."

"Lovely house - lovely people"

This little house is absolutely lovely and the ideal location for people who want to relax away from main tourist areas - and yet it is just 15 minutes from great beaches and great shopping in Negombo. The cottage is simple and has exactly what you need and not a lot more - and a great atmosphere!

The swimming pool and garden is lovely and the beach is great for taking long walks but not for swimming because of the reefs.

The local population in the area as well as the people working at the property are incredibly friendly and helpful and you get none of the hassle that you encouter in more touristy locations.

Great value for money!
