The best in this hotel is the extremely friendly staff. The manager welcomes you and after dinner the cook comes to every table and asks if you like the food. Also the waiters are very friendly.
The rooms in the new part are quite ok, nothing special, but ok.
For me the only drawback is the food. It is ok, no question. But I don't come to Sri Lanka to eat meat balls with potato ;)
Even the Sri Lanka food is not spicy. But the quality is good so don't be afraid. The bread was toasted in advance and very dry. I mentioned this to the manager and he will stay a toast machine in the breakfast room... we will see :)
Overall it is a good Hotel and I enjoyed both nights.
