Great old colonial hotel in excellent location , next to Temple Of the Tooth. Has a wonderful wooden veranda to while away the evening on. Rooms are basic but ok and the mosquito net actually fitted the bed ....a rare find in the hotels we stayed in in Sri Lanka.
Has a restaurant on ground floor but we did not try it.
The only downside is the noise!! The birds descend to the trees around the temple and the hotel round sunset and are really noisy. The Temple is really noisy too at sunset ...and sunrise. But we could have lived with that ...it was the REALLY noisy Italian couple in the next room with no regard for others, that finished us off!
Thing is the rooms are simply partitioned off with wood and you can hear all from your neighbours room! So take some ear plugs if ya fancy any sleep at all!!
