We stayed in the 'classic' section of this wonderful old hotel. Unfortunately this sections as not been updated for some time. Rooms were old and musty, not value for money. Walls thin and floors creaky. Guess that goes with the age of the hotel if you don't mind it's charms. On the plus side the location is stunning and it has a great pool area next to the sea front and good gym. The food was average, stick with the Sri Lankan food.
