Very friendly family, nice location and great dinner and breakfast. The room was big and clean, though a bit humid. The matrasses were quite thin, we slept on two matrasses in top of each other, but still it was not really comfortable. Nevertheless, the friendliness and helpfulness of the family and the beautiful location makes up for this.

We had a great stay at the Green Grass Home stay, the hosts were so accommodating at short notice. It's a great location for Sigiriya Rock and the host took us to see the Dambulla cave temples which was so helpful as we had a short amount of time. The croissant hut restaurant next door was also a great recommendation, we would love to stay again!
