first off, the entrance is a complete mess, it will seem like you are driving though a building site! But when you get there..The building and rooms are amazing, really beautiful. Check in is fast and the whole atmosphere of this place is calm and peaceful. Neutral colours, tastefully decorated, which is lovely after the road trip to Galle!
The pool and public areas also lovely; only problem is that there is a working temple next to the pool and often smoke and noise drift over the wall and terrible smells too! This doesn't affect your room.
The food was lovely and seemed nicer than at the lighthouse over the road(which we were disappointed with, seemed rather dated). If you want a boutique hotel with a unique and luxurious setting , this is the place. Its nicer than the lighthouse hotel and the rooms are bigger than the also lovely galle dutch house hotel. SErvice at times was friendly but rather local in style; this is typical of SL though! recommended!
for breakfast- ask for the local style but you need to do that the night before.
