The location, overlooking the river to the forest beyond is what really makes this hotel. We arrived early on a Sunday morning and by mid-day the river was packed with locals enjoying themselves, washing, swimming, playing drums and creating lots of noise and atmosphere.
We took the canoe ferry across the river to the forest reserve, which is a birdwatcher's paradise, with the rare Serendib Scops Owl amongst the species we saw.
The food was good with lots of choice, room was a bit shabby in places, but who cares about that at such a great place. We'd go back anytime!
