I booked this hotel after reading the reviews and decided that it would be OK for a few hours sleep en route to Kandy. We arrived in Sri Lanka around 1.30 am and had to phone the hotel because the airport pickup we had arranged failed to turn up. We got to the hotel around 2.15 am and were shown to our gloomy, dark and filthy room. The sheets were the only thing clean in the room. The door had no proper lock, just a metal latch to prevent anyone coming in. The bathroom had not been cleaned in months. The dirt was visible everywhere. Even the cheap rugs were filthy as well as the stair carpet. The 'hotel' - doesn't deserve to be called a hotel It was so disgusting that we checked out by 6am. Paying to stay in a room like that even for a few hours was not a pleasant way to start our holiday,
