We spent a lovely 3 nights here and would definately recommend this boutique hotel. The location is great and staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel has 7 rooms, 3 of which overlook the nice pool. Our room was just steps from the pool and we spent leisurely mornings relaxing there, the staff brought us pool towels, glasses of water and slices of watermelon which was very thoughtful! Service was generally excellent. Our room was nicely decorated and spacious, the bathroom was good too though there was no door separating the bathroom from the bedroom. The hotel has a rooftop bar which is a nice place to have your dinner or a shisha, the night we ate there there were 3 other couples also eating on the terrace and they had a musician to entertain us. We ate downstairs on the veranda another evening which was also very nice. The food was excellent, they cooked crabs especially for one of the other couples which we were told were fantastic. There was no conventional bar however, though they did have limited wine and beer and you could bring your own or ask them to go to the supermarket for you. Breakfast was very good and we ate it on the veranda. The location was perfect for seeing the Fort, we took a tuktuk to the beach one day too and it didn't take long at all, the same guy came back to collect us that evening too. On our last day the hotel allowed us to keep our room until 2pm and we were able to continue using the facilities such as the pool until our driver took us to the airport at 9pm which was great. The journey to Colombo airport took only slightly less than 2hrs using the new highway which was a pleasant surprise. I would be delighted to stay here again. We greatly enjoyed our stay and it added to our holiday!
