    ... to drive in Sri Lanka, a car with hardy wheels and a skilful driver with good instincts are vital. Google maps wasn't very reliable, but the villagers were helpful and readily gave directions.

Our reception was more perfunctory than effusive but the room is clean and the A/C works. The establishment is co-owned by a Dutch/German woman (Su) who has run the place for the last 27 years or so.
