We booked the hotel with Avios points and apart from a hiccup at the start with finding our reservation had a very pleasant 2 nights. Our room was large and airy, high tea a real treat, buffet dinner with a wide ranging choice and breakfast enabled me to embrace "hoppers" with coconut sambol. We strolled across Galle Face Green on a Saturday afternoon shortly followed by cocktails at the pool bar. We did not particularly enjoy Colombo as a city and 1 night would have have been ok. That taking nothing away from a piece of Colonial nostalgia. The catapult man scaring off the crows is worth looking out for.
