This hotel is exactly what we needed during our 2 nights stay in Galle region. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, to make you feel like an ambassador during colonial times. The pool setting is relaxing and all the staff is competent and discrete. A special thanks to Anouchka for the brithday cake.
