We stayed 8 nights at the Lighthouse on a bed and breakfast basis and chose this hotel mainly based upon the reviews on Tripadvisor. Delighted to say that the hotel lived up to our every expectation . We ate in The Cinnamon Room( Fine dining), Cardamon Cafe( A la Carte) and the Anchor Poolside bar and found the food to always be excellent with a wide choice and something to suit all tastes. We did not find it expensive for a 5* hotel although you have to bear in mind the 22% taxes added to the final bill.One issue we did have was the accuracy of the billing, not in the amounts but the room it was to be charged to so would recommend you check these details when signing. Breakfasts were plentiful and enough to set you up for the day. All of the hotel staff were attentive and eager to please and a real credit to the hotel. The restaurant manager was always on hand checking standards and chatting to the guests. Galle Fort and town is a 10 minute tuk tuk ride away, not recommended to walk it as the roads are manic and dangerous for pedestrians. It was always a pleasure after a day out and about in the hurly burly that is Sri Lanka to return to the haven of peace and tranquility of the Jetwing Lighthouse . Highly recommended.
