Got to this place very late in the evening, and they said only one room left its 'family room' ok no choice Very tired but found the sheet lot of hairs and the pillow was disgusting. Anyway still need to rest. But I think they could do better with the cost that we paid.

We came here to take a rest and wait for our bus ride home at Puduraya, which is just about 200m away from the hotel. Luckily they had day-use room available on the day we went - sometimes day-use room are fully booked and would not be available (we had been passing by and inquired a few times previously but...
