Very nice place, great hosts. Not in the usual backpacker area in fact the other side of the lake completely. About 1km from the rear temple entrance then a short hop into town. Plenty of Tuk Tuk's enroute if you can't be bothered to walk. Small extra charge for breakfast in you want it. Has AC and non-AC rooms, the...

Manjella and her husband went above and beyond to make our stay a lovely one. We asked for traditional Sri Lankan food and was not disappointed - on our last night here Manjella helped teach me how to where the sari's I bought that day. The rooms were spotless, there was toilet paper and 2 towels yay. Shower was nice...

We stayed here for 3 nights at 2500 rp per night which is a good price for that location and it included breakfast. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. Madam makes fantastic Sri Lankan home cooked dishes. The owner can be a bit pushy with touting an organised tour to the gardens and spices, dance etc...The cheap rooms are...

We stayed here over the Sinhalese New Year and were made to feel incredibly welcome by the family. Our room was clean and modest and the use of the balcony which overlooked the Udawattakele Sanctuary was wonderful to wake up to every morning. Green Villa is in a good location; only a 15 minute walk to the Lake and Temple...

Absolutely terrible! We have booked one night after reading other reviews and looking at pictures and...it was nothing of what we expected! A mouse must have been in the bathroom before us, leaving s...on the shower tiles! Ants were everywhere, tiny beds and smelly pillows! Avoid this place!

The Green Villa exceeded our expectations. At first we thought it was closed but by going downstairs and speaking to people we discovered that there was a power cut and the bell wasn't working because of it. The room was clean and spacious, as was the bathroom. Breakfast was ok too. Getting in and out off the city is easy...

We booked 3 nights at green villa through booking.com and this was confirmed separately by Green Villa but we arrived after a long taxi ride into the hills to find the hotel closed. Our taxi driver helped us to call the owner who just confirmed the hotel was closed and then rang off with no explanation or apology. The hotel...
