We stayed here 2 nights during a one week vacation in Sri Lanka. Service is excellent - the staff was approachable, friendly and always ready to go out of their way to help. Rooms are very uniquely decorated, with an artistic minimalist touch to it. It was very different to any other accommodation we had stayed at previously and we loved the change! Location is fantastic - it's an easy walk anywhere within the fort. Breakfast was nice - generous servings of fruit. We ordered eggs which was cooked well and of course, Sri Lankan coffee which never disappoints. We had dinner at the hotel one of the nights - the chef had recommended a lobster and a crab. Both were good though we felt that the prices were a bit steep, compared to any other hotel we had seafood at in Sri Lanka. Nonetheless, we loved our stay and hopefully will be back to visit soon!
