The Waterside is a very quiet small hotel overlooking the river with superb sunsets and an ideal place to recover from the often frenetic pace of live in Sri Lanka. It was really nice to have breakfasts cooked specially for you - and the evening meals were of a very high standard.
Although away from the centre of town, a pleasant and complimentary boat ride would take you to the beach or the town centre within 5 minutes- and at any time you wished.
The staff were most helpful and friendly and the English lady owner -who built the hotel 7 years ago after the Tsunami to help local employment- was always on hand to help with any advice
The rooms were spacious and comfortable.
Overall a very pleasant and enjoyable place to stay
