눉I was thinking a lot whether I should write down this. But I believe everyone should be aware of such scams. We asked the owner of the hotel, Chameera to arrange for a transfer between Kandy and Nuwara Eliya. He asked for 10,000 rupees from us. We were well aware that the price was a little high and that he keeps some of it fir himself, but we did not expect such an outcome. In Kandy a car showed up, the smallest Tata without a trunk. We had to put the two luggages on the back seat and travelled very uncomfortable. The car driver said that his company was paid 6000 and thus Chameera kept 4000 for himself. I would love to help this country and people with my money but I really do not like to support other people's greediness. So please be careful with this guy when you ask for additional services. You might find yourself ripped off.
눇Stuff was helpful though for great money.

눇The accommodation was absolutely perfect - great location (Sigiriya Rock is a beautiful 25 minute stroll away), full of character, with a lovely breakfast area looking out onto rice fields. The food was superb and best of all, the family was absolutely lovely - they made me feel so welcome and it was great to be able to spend time chatting to them and learning about the country and their way of life. They will help you with anything - arranging transport (they picked me up from the airport, got me to Polonnaruwa, on to Kandy at the end of my stay etc) and tours and I even borrowed Ruweena's (sorry if the spelling is wrong!) bike one day to cycle around town. Thanks for everything and if I'm eer back in Sri Lanka, I would love to stay with you again!

눉It is a little way from the centre but not a problem for us as we had a driver. As others mentioned there is no shower curtain (not unusual we realised in Sri Lanka) so the whole bathroom does get quite wet. We mentioned this to them so hopefully it is already resolved.
눇We only stayed here the one night but were pleased we choose it. It is a new family run place and the room was finished to a high standard. Food is taken in the small restaurant overlooking their rice paddy. A highlight for us was the visit from two elephants during dinner, as we could see them at the gar side of the property. Not a highlight for the owners sd the had to scare them away to protect their almost ready to harvest rice crop!
