I stayed the first two nights of my holiday here. I had the Banyon the first night and the Bamboo den on the second night. Both rooms were comfortable - I had no problem with the internal window in Banyon, as there was a curtain, but the Bamboo room was infinitely better. Banyon was basic, but Bamboo was a lovely room, so if you get the choice ask for that.
The hotel was very clean, so unlike the recent reviewer, i had no problem there.
The manager, John, and his wife were lovely. John still runs a travel company and he organised a trip for me round Sri Lanka for a week. He actually drove me himself as all his drivers were busy. He was very courteous and helpful, and the price was very reasonable. I had booked at the last minute, so hadn't planned anything, so he took care of that and found me some very nice hotels. In retrospect the trip was a bit too hectic, so next time I would take it more slowly, but that was my fault more than John's
Thoroughly recommended, and in a good location for Galle Face green - about 15 minutes walk. Not a very nice walk due to all the road works, so a tuktuk might be best until the work is finished. I stopped off on the way to have high tea at the Cinnamon Grand, which served as breakfast lunch and tea on my first day and was vey reasonably priced.
