The place is just off from Galle road and the access is not difficult at all. The place is scenic as its next to Maadu ganga, location is relaxing and peaceful. Absolutely no disturbances and hotel staff assured our privacy. The garden is spacious and well maintained. It can easily accommodate to a gathering of 50+ people. Swimming pool with a baby pool are not too small but large enough. Prices was reasonable and food quality was average. The room is not too jammed filled with traditional furniture and room quality can be graded as average. Some of the negative observations were that the water quality is not so good as some of us had burning sensations in eyes. Outer radius of the swimming pool is too slippery and can be unsafe specially to children. The room provided had broken bath room door lock and group had very difficult time to use it.

Eight of us booked three rooms. Rooms were great, very spacious and one room had a high-tech shower and a smaller room with two single beds within the big room. Food was very good and we were looked after well. However it seems the place is a little unoccupied. We were taken on a trip on the river which is more like a lake (see pictures). Beautiful views and well kept garden. I recommend this hotel.
