Good, Clean place to relax. Mostly taken by day seekers and lovers. Clean rooms and good atmosphere. Nice Lawn with huge garden. Food is good but not that exclusive. There are AC and Non-AC rooms available as per the requirement. No more Cabanas as it was suppose to be.

Myself and my friend stayed here for two nights upon arrival into Sri Lanka. Although we received a reasonably warm reception from the front desk, that was about it. The younger male staff were contemptuous of us - two females travelling solo and seemed to be quite perplexed by this, asking questions like "did we like Sri Lankan men or...

“The rooms on the ground floor have patios where you have breakfast. This hotel reminded me of a place I stayed in Cuba where the entrance to all the rooms is outside. The hotel is set up where there are several small 2 story buildings with 2 lower and 2 upper units.”
