Peaceful surrounding and a beautiful hotel. Some staff members were extremely good while some had difficulties maintaining the quality of service. There was an loud argument between 2 staff members and us being the only Sri Lankans who were there at that time who could understood the language, we felt very uncomfortable. Apart from that, we had trouble throughout the...

This hotel is beautiful. It's design means you're hidden from an open or loud area (like the swimming pool) and I can happily sit away in a spot and watch the world go by without being interrupted. The rooms are large and very colonial. Great views of the river, and it has a beautiful pool. It also has a bath...

My second stay here and was given a 5th floor room with a nice view. Same friendly staff with good housekeeping service. Food is above average and breakfast buffet is of good quality although no new dishes. They do have events here and can be disruptive at times but you can take advantage of a free show this way.
