Fodor's Expert Review Garden Guest House
7 Karlshrue Gardens, Colombo, Western, Sri Lanka
Very often in Sri Lanka, the best values and most personal experiences are found in family-run B&Bs, and the Garden Guest House is a wonderful example. There's a small garden, and even an indoor fountain. The three guest rooms are pink and flowery, clearly furnished with a woman's touch, but also very homey. The owner and his mother will help you in every way possible, right down to picking you up personally at the airport. As is the case with many Sri Lankan B&Bs, you can also choose to have all, some, or none of your meals in-house, family-style. You can choose from Western or local cuisine, and it will be cooked to order for you from the freshest ingredients. If you don't fancy that, there's also a private kitchen for guests to use.
