Just a very average hotel. Nothing bad as such but nothing special either. No WiFi in the rooms is rather annoying. So was the position of the air conditioner in my room. The food was good but service took forever. Staff we helpful, rooms clean and characterless. The rather nice view was obstructed by electrical cables.

The service is very good and the staff is friendly towards guests. Buffet and a la carte both have a good variety. The hotel has a very good... More

I went here with my family and my grandfather who is originally from Sri Lanka. This hotel was amazing. The staff looked after us really well. I loved the bathroom but not the monkey that came in my room and the bird that pecked above my shower. You have to stay here, it is a once in a life time... More

The hotel setting is beautiful but it is a bit old and tired. Service is also not great and there is a feel that perhaps there is not enough staff for the size of the hotel.
