Fantastic place to stay
john_dasi... [TA], , London, United Kingdom

I stayed here for three nights in March this year (2015). Sujith (the owner) couldn't have looked after me better - fantastic service and delicious Sri Lankan curry in the evening. Sujith also arranged a brilliant bird-watching tour by tuk tuk - much better than joining all the other tourists in Yala and Bundala. The guest house is very peaceful, on the edge of Tissa tank. The rooms are very clean, modern and great value for money. It was far the best place I stayed in Sri Lanka this year.

Loved this place
paulandvi... [TA], , cairns

We loved My Village. Fabulous huge rooms, spotlessly clean. All the staff were excellent and the food was really good. They don't have driver accommodation so our driver stayed just down the road but ate all meals with us. Really lovely outdoor area. When we came to settle the bill, the owner gave us a discount (unasked for) and also included all our drivers meals for free. Very generous. Would happily stay here again.

A pleasure to stay there.

Spent two nights at My Village on the recommendation of a friend whilst visiting Yala National Park. I was not disappointed.

The room was great. Nicely designed (by the owner who is an architect). Little touches like small stone shelves at different heights built into the wall.

The patio area outside the room was a pleasure to relax in. Lots of plants and trees and the same afore mentioned design.

Breakfast was included in the price (4500 rupees). Lunch is available and dinner (on advance order).

The owner was around but the older man working there was wonderful. Quiet but friendly, gave me a good vibe. The guys in the kitchen had pretty limited English. Didn't understand when I asked for water.

They have bicycles which you can borrow. This I recommend doing. You can go for a really nice ride along the western shore of the lake with rice paddies on one side. Perhaps stopping at Lake Edge Guesthouse for refreshments.

The only negative was that the wifi wasn't working. But on the other hand it meant I read a great deal. And sort of remembered what life was like before I began spending half the day staring at my phone. However if wifi is important to you maybe call and ask if it's working before reserving/turning up.

Highly recommended.

Cozy, stylish, classy!

Whole 5 stars! The best service, very friendly and polite personal. Their cook is a God! Not only tasty but beautiful - rice&carry is delicious. Comfortable rooms, new stuff in bathroom, new QUIET! a/c, many cute interior decisions in rooms and gardens. They're near the lake, but there is not so many mosquitos here, they really do their best. Opposite there are many squirrels and sometimes monkeys. They have no service charge at the moment and if you stay long safari is free.

Piece of Paradise

Bucketing down with rain but still a great place to stay. Inexpensive, beautiful rooms, spotlessly clean and Justin the manager is the friendliest guy in Tissa, what an exceptional man. We were a bit out of town (that was good) but Tisssa (easier to say than Tissamaharama) is easy to get to by Tuk-Tuk which Justin will arrange for you at any time. (And I mean any time). We did the safari at 04:00 and Justin was there to make sure we were up and ready and he had prepared a wonderful packed breakfast for us for on the road to the park. The food is sensational breakfast lunch and dinner......
Thank you all for making our holiday so great and thanks to Sanka our driver for recommending 'My Village"

Room Tip: Take the early safari trips and make sure you arrange a well known guide/tour ask at the hotel.

Third visit. Excellent.
Natalie28... [TA], , Bristol

This is my third visit to this wonderful place and still remains my favourite place to stay in sri lanka.
The staff are really friendly and helpful.
The food is outstanding.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable.
They arranged the safari for us and we lefta little early to beat the crowds which was fantastic because of this we seen two leopards. Overall everything perfect as always.

Second visit
Botumato [TA], , Bratislava, Slovakia

I just returned from my second trip to Sri Lanka, we stayed few days at this hotel. Again, I was very pleased by the hospitality of the staff and owner, I feel like at home. They build second floor which shall be opened soon.
Definitely I would recommend this hotel for all visitors who would like to stay here.

Perfect base for safari tours
Birgit S [TA], ,

We found this place from the accomodations list in the Rough Guide and stayed for two nights.
The room itself was pleasantly spacious, very clean and well maintained.

The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful with all of our questions. Food was delicious - both dinner and breakfast. Unfortunately, it was very rainy by the time we went there - the huge, roofed atrium was great as it allowed to be outside enjoying the fresh air despite the heavy rain. They also offer free bikes to explore the surroundings - sadly, the heavy rain prevented us to use this service but it must be great as the area is flat and therefore suitable for bike excursions.

We also booked the Safari to Yala NP with the hotel - very reliable service. We had a seasoned guide which actually gave us an edge over other safari jeeps for watching the leopards (he always knew how to position the jeep to get the best view).

To sum up, MyVillage completely met our expectations of a clean, comfortable place to spend a night or two. Together with the friendly staff and the really fair price of 5,000 rupies, we highly recommend the place and would definitely would stay here again.

The best hotel we stayed in on our trip!
Karl B [TA], , London, United Kingdom

Cold fruit shake on arrival :) Room was great - amazing a/c (which had been turned on ready for our arrival in the baking heat!) and comfy beds. Fantastic service - lovely food, huge breakfast and everything was organised to perfection for us during our stay including full day safari and taxis whenever we needed them. Tasty packed breakfast and lunch provided for our safari, and tea and biscuits waiting for us when we returned. Its a 15-20 minute walk from the town centre but there isn't much to see there anyway. This place is ideal as a base for those wanting to go on a safari or hop on a bus to Kataragama. Only negative was that the wifi didn't seem to be working but this may have been sorted since. Highly recommend staying.

Friendly staff made our stay
lros [TA], , Manchester

We had a wonderful stay at My Village. The room was spacious & clean with air con & just outside there was a lovely tranquil courtyard. The food was amazing we highly recommend the curry and rice. The staff were wonderful, they were very helpful & attentive & nothing was too much trouble. They organised our trip to Yala, which was the highlight of our stay and helped us plan our onward journey. We highly recommend this guesthouse as a place to stay in Tissa.
