We stayed here after a month traveling round lovely Sri Lanka, and it was the perfect ending. From first step over the threshold you are drawn into the reassuring calm of this grand old hotel, and it nurtures you. Our allocated room was a perfectly-fitted but titchy 3rd floor with a double-bed, not suited to a mother and daughter sharing. No problem. Hotel staff were warmly accommodating offering an upgrade for a surprisingly small supplement. We and our luggage were swept grandly into a spacious room with enormous carved wood twin beds, on the ground floor, overlooking the garden. Heavenly thick mattresses, soft white bed linen, fluffy towels. Immaculately clean and beautifully equipped. What a great place to re-charge before the journey home.
