OVERALL :- so far me and my friends(couple) stayed in 6 lankan hotels and this is the worst, not value for money probably worth 75$ a night.. AVOID..believe the negative feed back guys..I didn't believe it because I hoped they are wrong.
I checked in here after a 12 hour flight journey with couple of my friends
Reception :- Good, smiling people, excellent, rooms werent ready for one hour, but we were fine with it.
Car park - not enough parking due to weddings, need to stay untill you get a parking spot free. definitely not meeting the expectations
entry - mud, water, old carpets, probably 50 years old
lift - ha ha ha..joke.. jz climb stairs..
entry hole to rooms - ragged clothes are better than carpets, renovation, lots of photographers, its not a nice holiday feeling..
room - good size, space. old fridge - you could smell fridge..dont plan to use bath tub...stains from 1800 century..
Animals - my friends room was attacked by animals..they got a different room after complaining..
buffet - average, nothing special. we paid extra money for sea food buffet..nothing special..
breakfast - below average, old oily bacons, only one action station - all other hotels we styed had at least 3 action stations for morning, just poor
check out - quick and again good reception staff..
Location :- good place to shopping, clubbing and get a sea view and fly kites..
not good for a holiday location
at least 5 wedding a day.so many people brides and photographers..feel like you walked in to a mall not a hotel..
