We stayed at Glenfall resort because it was close to the Golf Course. The hotel is very dated and cluttered the bed very comfortable but a bit short for my husband who is only 5ft 10ins!. The room was SO cold the windows did not close fully and frames not a good fit . To our annoyance we had to... More

Most terrible budget hotel in the city. But the prices are not at all budget. Not value for money. We were charged a lot. But the service was very poor. There had been a very bad smell all over there.Toilets were smelly, dirty and unpleasant. Not recommended for anyone to stay there.

This old hotel has a lot of character, and a fantastic colonial vibe. The staff is very attentive and will literally run to get you a roll of toilet paper. Upon entering room 104 though, we were greeted by a foul mildew smell that emanated from the room's stale carpet. To relieve the intense aromas we bought a few scented... More

Reception was friendly, so was the price. We did not stay for dinner but went around the corner to a great indian restaurant, Grand, the best we had in... More

We arrived on reccomendation of our tuk-tuk driver. he promised this place should provide all of what we need. and he was right. the rooms are comfortable and clean, only the window in the bathroom couldn't be closed, which makes it very inconvenient during having shower when temperatures outside are below than 10 degrees. even so the service is good,...

We had a large double bed, plasma TV and plenty of satellite channels, a very hot and powerful shower, wifi, very cheap next day laundry service and the best tea ive tasted - grown locally. Food wasn't great however - scrambled eggs on toast for breakfast were... More

This is budget accomodation, count please with that. On other hand, hotel is nice and garden for dinner/lunch works perfectly. Room was big and clean, only problem is that this part of Sri lanka is quite wet, so you could feel it in the room. We have very sunny weather when we arrived so we opened window and till evening...
