They offered us the superior room when we checked in, really great room with a veranda in the top of the building. The hotel is in good shape and service and the included breakfast was top standard. The restaurant also served great lunch/dinner. Many thanks to all the people who was working and esecially to Dilan and Kaushalya that fixed everything we wanted with a big smile!

First time in Sri Lanka! The hotel was booked in advance, we thought it would be worse than in the photo. When we arrived we were very surprised and glad to be provided with us in the room! high ceilings, cleanliness, courtesy and courtesy of the staff, the presence of parking and its own restaurant, which had great breakfasts, lunches and dinners! Throughout our stay in this hotel, we ate exclusively in the hotel restaurant. all the reason, delicious food and courtesy of the staff! But all this was not a table significant if not Mr. Sugath, when I never met all my travels for such a responsive and polite restaurant administrator! Mr. Sugath solved all our problems and helped me in any matter, both related to the hotel and with ay other! I was always interested in how are you doing and tried to help! one of the main factors on which I want to return to the hotel is exactly Mr. Sugath!))
