Colonial hotel, built at the turn of the last century, left pretty much untouched. The public areas are nice, smiling staff, decent food, great tea, lovely flowering gardens! I live in San Francisco, and $80 here cannot even get me a generic room in a seedy motel. So, I think Banarawela hotel at $80 was a great deal as it also included meals and accomodation for my driver. The rooms were functional, but I suspect luxurious rooms were not so common at the time the hotel was built. One caveat though! At 5 am, you will be woken by the call to pray (over a loudspeaker) from the closeby mosque!
I enjoyed my stay and recommend this place.
