Well, I saw little evidence of the fabulous service others were raving about, but it certainly is a large, well appointed room. Having a plug in water kettle with coffee and tea was great especially as there is not restaurant in the hotel. The room was poorly swept and when I came there was sand in the shower and on the room floor. It was late, so I left it alone, assuming they would clean the next day especially as a BIG sign left in the room said that the hotel policy is to clean the room everyday and guests should let the desk know if they DON'T want their room cleaned. Well, I returned the next day, late from a long day of work and found to my horror that the room was untouched! The explanation at the desk was that the guests don't like their room cleaned so unless specifically asked, they don't clean rooms!!!
The downside of the hotel is the noise. The windows don't shut very well and the constant strong breeze from the ocean rattles one window constantly. I would have left it open, except that it faces the house right across the narrow street. Starting at about 2 a.m.on the second night, in addition to my window, a door began to slam in the house and it slammed all the way until the morning. I have no idea how the young boys at the desk slept through that noise, but since I let myself out and back in every morning, without them stirring, I guess they sleep sound!
It is just off Galle road and right next to the ocean, so the location is convenient for a walk or for a quick bite in one of the many excellent restaurants - my most favourite the Green house is just a few minutes walk...
