The rooms are very spacious and beautifully furnished and we found everything very clean and tidy, we felt very homely. We had our little grandson of 16 months who found the gardens his playground...

This is simply a gem of a place. Set away from the hustle and bustle of the Galle Rd you enter an oasis of calm and tranquilly that oozes simple style. Fantastic pool, beautiful design, great food and charming staff. I can't recommend this boutique hotel enough

A highlight was watching monkeys swinging through the trees whilst relaxing in the pool. Also peacocks strut in the gardens. The hotel has plenty of old world charm with wide verandahs and high ceilings. There is a lot of history in this hotel and it was good to relax and soak it all in.

This hotel is more than my budget traveling usually allows for, but I found a deal online and was not disappointed. It's a stunning building with a wonderful staff, great food, delicious drinks, and a nice pool. All in all, a great experience. The only real negative is that the hotel is a tuk tuk ride away from the main... More

From the moment of arrival the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The sense of spaciousness as you enter the courtyard like garden puts you into a relaxed mood immediately.
