Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The positives about this hotel is that it is in a great location, the food is pretty good and the staff was friendly (fresh juice on arrival and the manager took us to the bus station when we were ready to leave. He even made sure we got on the right bus. :)) On the other hand, the hotel was a bit pricey, breakfast was on the expensive side for Sri Lankan standards and you will get haggled about tours from the staff.


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!
