We really liked the hotel. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. We had the Sri Lankan Rice and Curry for Dinner and it was really delicious and a lot. So the price was okay. Also the dinner area is really nice. The manager is helping with information on travelling further. We booked a driver in Colombo and for him they had accomodation. we would stay there again.


Excellent restaurant, first class cookers! Don't miss to try!

The breakfast was excellent! We enjoyed our stay here very much and would recommend it to everyone. Very clean rooms and staff are friendly and helpful.


The staff and food here are excellent and really make the stay wonderful. Wouldn't recommend staying more than one night as you can get most of the sights done in that time.


Free pick up and drop off at the bus station, friendly and welcoming service, lovely room (modern, clean, well-equipped), bike hire and info on seeing the ancient city. Shame I was only staying one night! Location was not right in the centre so without a bike, would've been a bit of a walk to shops and restaurants, however this did mean it was much quieter. I was very happy there. Atmosphere was fine, just there were very few other guest there at that time so it was very quiet. Highly recommend
