One side is the reception, other is the pool. the rooms are big, really big. bathrooms could have their own zipcode. staff were very nice, we were a group of 11 with 3 indian aunties/mothers/MIL (high maintenance) and they assisted with a smile all through the trip....

We stayed at this hotel last month for a friends wedding at the Lighthouse which was right across the street. As you walk in you wonder if you are the only ones staying there! It was very private and you can only hear the birds and crickets, with the odd monkey swinging in the trees! The swimming pool was lovely,... More

The hotel itself is stunning, among the best we stayed at in Sri Lanka. The Dutch Colonial Villa has been tastefully decorated and rooms are very well proportioned, stylish and comfortable with huge four poster beds. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, although at times they pushed a bit hard on the hotel’s own excursions (we were asked about... More

The resort was located kind of out of the way from the main road leading to Galle center. However, once you get passed the gate, a different world is about to unveil. Colonial era building was tastefully renovated such that the classic colonial architecture is preserved while the interior has been completely upgraded. Room is very spacious with huge bath... More

Sadly, the tour I was involved with, stayed only one night at this beautiful hotel. It was by far the best accommodation we had in our two week holiday.

We went for dinner but didn't quite enjoy it. The Chinese and Italian options (which we opted for) can well be avoided and suggest you stick to the Sri Lankan specialities only. Service was courteous and the location is nice although it can't beat the restaurant views from the Lighthouse Hotel!
