The Wallawwa is a very well presented and comfortable boutique hotel offering, in secluded grounds but only about 15 mins from the airport. The garden suite room option that we took was excellent; we didn't see the standard rooms but I would guess they are probably pretty good too, and the hotel is very well maintained overall. We really liked the food which included both international and local options. The staff seemed very well trained and always keen to help without being "in your face". One downside might be that there is little of visitor interest in the immediate locality, but if you're just using the place at beginning/end of a trip that's unlikely to be a problem. Also, wi-fi wasn't really practical in our first room due to the thick walls, although sitting on the veranda with laptop to get emails and do flight check-ins was no hardship. All in all, we couldn't really fault the Wallawwa and would highly recommend.
