Have just returned from a visit to Sri Lanka, staying primarily at the Lighthouse. Glad we did. We selected the hotel on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The staff did their utmost to accomodate us during a busy time (Sri Lanka v New Zealand cricket), helping us with an itinerary for a 5 day tour to the Mid/North of the island. Nothing was too much trouble and always done with a smile. The hotel was in a great location, not far from Galle (600R return via Tuk Tuk) but a highlight is sitting on the front with a glass of wine/cool beer watching the sun setting. Marvellous. There is plenty of room in the hotel, withy mealtimes being a relaxed affair with good food. None of our group had any issues with the food- well done. The breakfasts had as much choice as you might wish, all fresh/freshly cooked. Evening meals came in at 2000R for 6 course set menu, which was different every night and well cooked/presented. Alternate restaurants/menus are available.The hotel rooms were more than adequate (choose a room with a zero in the middle if poss- eg 306- away from road at rear)- our two children thought they were fab and didn't want to leave.
We don't normally return to locations, but we would consider Sri Lanka and this hotel again. We didn't meet anyone with a bad word to say. Place it on your "worth considering" list.
