l had a very nice time at Colombo Haven B&B even though I stayed just only 1 night. Staffs are very kind like homestay family and the breakfast was gorgeous! We really enjoyed real local food very much!
If you prefer friendly atmosphere with local breakfast, I really recommend here.
The location is also covenience to go around to the town but not noisy area.

Stayed: November 2016, travelled with friends

What a little gem, great location, comfortable and clean room and a fantastic Lankan breakfast. John and Shamylia made us feel so welcome and helped us plan our two week trip. They have also helped us plan our 2018 trip this time to the east coast and of course another stay at Colombo Haven.
Highly recommended.

Don't know where to start with this review, i can go on forever so il keep it as short as i can. We were going on a two week holiday in Sri Lanka and we had booked in advance to stay first the two nights at colombo haven.transport was also arranged for us from the airport by colombo haven in the early hours of the morning.we arrived at the homestay about 6am and what a welcome we had. This was one of seven properties we were staying at in the two weeks we were there. The hospitality we received from John and his wife shamylia was undoubtedly head and shoulders above anywhere i have ever stayed.
The breakfast is by far the best we have had and all cooked fresh. We had mapped out a route but after discussing with John he made suggestions and organised places to visit and stay for us which completely changed our route but definitely made our holiday one to remember. The room was very clean and comfortable.
Most of all we have made true friends with an amazing couple and of course raamoo and the world famous TUK TUK driver Lawrence
