Its a good hotel..but while booking the rooms keep in mind,they have 2wings,one is older one,another newer..we got our room in old wing..staffs r very good.,but the room was vry average..lifts also have a particular bad odour..:-(
Food wise-if u r non-veg u can stand their menu..but if u r veg u will b disheartened..vry limited option.dont waste ur precious money here.
Food is vry costly..if u hv enough money then better go in Taj..
But if u r a economic one or ghar ka khana miss karney types.then u go for road side cafe.they serve fresh veg foods/south indian foods.As I m a North Indian veg food lover,but at times cant get it.,simply ask for Plain DOSAI(dosa),it will satisfy ur taste bud.Be vry particular when u asking for Tea..what we call lemon tea in india,they simply know Plain tea,so be specific in asking for Milk tea.
Generally if u r 30-45 min away from Airport u negotiate with the cab driver in 2500/-INR(including 300/- toll tax)
They r so many small things to share..its a beautiful country to go with good people,u always get beautiful smiles..
Most imp even Srilankan Police is vry cordial while assisting Tourist.
All the best for srilankan tour:-)
