It was the perfect 1 day stay in this historic hotel located by the coastline of Colombo. the staff were extremely friendly and showed us the best of the all famous Sri Lankan hospitality.
Breakfast buffet was fantastic, fresh squeezed juice available upon request. The buffet lunch was equally good, free flow of sandwiches!
The room was comfortable and it was the perfect place to get our rest for the rest of our trip.
Check out the pictures hung around the hotel (esp in the dining room) to find out the rich history of guests who have stayed in this 150 year old hotel.
One tip, there is a refurbishment going on but it in no way affected our stay.
