“Divine end to our Sri Lanakan trip”

Reviewed 6 Apr 2016

My wife fell in love with the Old Clove House when she saw the photos. Communication with Tai and Sathish was then very easy and all our questions were met with quick replies. When we arrived at the property we were not disappointed and it is even better than the photos! We were given a tour of the home and the attention to detail is quite incredible. The owner, Tai, obviously takes great care and pride in the decoration of the home and works to keep the home maintained to an impeccable standard. We stayed with my parents and my 17 year old sister who all said that the beds were super comfortable and the best night's sleep we had in Sri Lanka. We were in the country for the hottest time of the year so the pool was a nice place to spend time in the afternoon. We asked for dinner and breakfast to be prepared for us and we were absolutely blown away. The food was the best we had in our week in the country. The grilled fish and prawn curry- actually everything- was incredible. The egg hoppers in the morning were a real treat. I could go on and on- but as you can tell we were very happy guests and would recommend this gem of a place to everyone.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your kind words and we all at Old Clove House are really really happy that you've had a really good and enjoyable stay here with your incredibly amazing family.

Sri Lanka is not too far from Dubai or Singapore, and a very convenient meeting point for all of you who are now spread out far and wide and I really hope to have the opportunity to host you and your wonderful family again at Old Clove House.

“A perfect place to stay”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2015

We stayed with a large family consisting of young kids, teenagers, parents and a grandmother. When we arrived the owner, Tai, helped move all the beds around so the kids could all sleep together and really helped get us settled. Tai, was always willing to help and advise and his staff were fantastic. Food was excellent and the chef was able to produce a range of food to satisfy the most fussy of eaters! The house is beautifully renovated and has wifi, Bluetooth speakers, tv and DVD player. The beds were very comfortable and the aircon strong and cold though the ceiling fan alone was adequate. Great showers too. The garden is lovely and we played many games of football and frisbee (joined by the puppy) Nearby is a lovely beach with a fabulous beach bar serving yummy pizzas and Galle is a short tuk tuk ride away. Great location, beautiful house and lovely people.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your lovely, honest review and assessment of your experience at Old Clove House. We're really happy and delighted that you had a great time, and that you found the food and accommodation to be good as we really do try our best in that department as that's what makes the experience of staying at a private villa. I do apologise for the situation with the mosquitoes but there had been very heavy rains during the weeks preceding your arrival and this has exacerbated the situation of the mosquitoes. We have since remedied that with various plug-in repellents all around the house and we're delighted to say that this has worked very well, and that the current set of guests with young children are finding that there are minimal issues with mosquitoes in and around the house. I do look forward to seeing all of you again, particularly your mum, who's such a wonderfully special and lovely individual and really glad that you all had the occasion to celebrate her 80th birthday, and to see in the New Year at Old Clove House.
