105호 였던 것 같다. 창문이 있는 객실. 객실이 크진 않지만 아늑하고 깨긋하다. 위치도 버스터미널과 가깝고, 게스트 하우스 자체에 앉을 공간을 많이 마련해 두어 차 한잔 하기엔 더 없이 좋다. There's no better guesthouse than this in Haputale. Location is quite a good, clean, many seating area. The best things are here, Breakfast with yogurt & honey!

Probably my favourite place to stay in Sri Lanka. Amazingly beautiful views and a beautiful wooden interior too. The owner and his family are incredibly lovely and hospitable – always happy to answer your questions and provide advice. Clean double room and facilities. The food is cheap and really tasty! Rooms of varying prices depending on size and view etc.... More

Nice, clean place and friendly family. Most beautiful views, which the noisy traffic unfortunately detracts from. This place is on the main road. The owners are very helpful and flexible. I didn't sense much atmosphere at the place but I think his is mostly because Hatapule is so quiet. Beautiful walks in the area.

Awinco is a professionally run homestay in a fantastic location in Haputale. Ella might receive more tourists but the views from Haputale are just as special, if not better. Also, it feels like a more genuine town, whereas Ella comes across as a town won over by tourism. The hotel is clean has good value rooms and great Sri Lankan... More

Awinco definitely serves the best local cuisine. We really enjoyed the rice and curry dinner set as well as string hopper breakfast set. Altho there is no fan and AC in the room, but it was cooling especially during nighttime. Recommended for their clean room with good bed, good view, excellent food and free pickup from train station.
