The building is really pretty with attentive staff. Our room on the 3rd floor was clean and cool. The breakfast was what we came to expect all over Sri Lanka, comprising of eggs, toast and jam. Overall we had a good time and the location was well placed as it was very easy to get to town from here while...

For the first time I didn't read trip advisor reviews, big mistake! I booked through booking.com and the room should have cost £40 for a night, however just before I arrived the had charged my cc £96. They sent an email explaining they had refunded my card but still no money has gone in to my account. The hotel is...

Don't touch this hotel! My girlfriend and I had money stolen whilst we were at breakfast. The 'manager' spoke with us while another member of staff raided my girlfriend's bag. Not the first review to write this either. It's in a bad location too. Not worth the money or the hassle!

The people seemed lovely at first but we soon learned that they lured us into a false sense of security so that they could sneak up to our room and steal our money whilst at breakfast. We had 8000lkr and 600aed taken. I wish I had read the most recent reviews before I left. They also tried to debit our...

The hosts seem like lovely people, only to lure you into a false sense of security while you eat in the morning. Money was stolen from the zip section of a handbag I had which was sitting on the bed. 8000lkr and 600aed. Absolute disgrace, especially from people who warned us when we arrived about dodgy tuk tuk drivers looking...

We would have rated this hotel quite well if money had not been taken from our room while we were at breakfast. Room ok. Location ok. The photos make it all look better than the reality. Would not recommend.

I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I was with this hotel. Firstly when we arrived we were not greeted very well and it seemed that everyone except the cleaner was not there. There was one member of staff, in the mornings 2! We got into our room where there was no safe (even though advertised) and the toilet...

This charming boutique hideaway hotel is a trip through an art museum. The furniture from the entrance to the baths are choice art pieces surrounded by little gardens and airy spaces. There was a lovely balcony off my bedroom which was very large and a pleasure to be in. The bath is huge with lovely tile work. The manager, Adrian...

We pre-booked this hotel on-line, which looked very nice. On arrival the superior room which we booked was far from superior. The walls were dirty and in need of decorating, the window binds/curtains were down blacking out the window and door to the balcony, and neither of them worked so no natural light could be had in the room. My...
