“A Gloomy, Damp & Simple place on a Scenic Plot”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

I really wanted to get there as the place looked really appealing when seen from the road, but as you get there i am pretty sure you might get a bit heart broken.

Building seems to be recently painted but still it looks poor and damp with a dusty smell inside.

Staff is, as usual in Sri Lanka, loyal & hospitable, with almost nothing to offer.

You can order your food from a restricted menu, again , with nothing to review and you find a small bar in the back corner.

The place is only good for a snack or a sip of beer as rooms are the same.

Dropped in to have the lunch on our way to Colombo . Very good location and having a fantastic view . However rooms are not properly maintained. Ceiling is damped. Wall in the restaurant near the buffet table is full of dust.

While our meals being prepared had a look at the rooms.They showed their best room which is a triple room. Its small in size and smelling. . Wash room seems to be clean but the walls &, ceiling are damped. The furniture is very old may be used in the colonial times.

The garden is well maintained and its welcoming the guests. You get a wonderful view of the mountains and the railway track which is right below the rest house next to A4 road.

It seems the place is mainly used as a pub and the food is expensive but quality wise not good. We had vegetable fried rice and chicken in Chinese style . They used samba rice and the dish hardly had flesh.
