We were made very welcome on our arrival by Oliver and the staff and management team could not have been more helpful. This hotel has been delightfully converted (it has won a UNESCO award). Our room was beautiful, very different, and with real character. The hotel is right in the middle of the fort which is perfect for wandereing around (a must - go to the shop called Barefoot, 100 yards away, good quality stuff really different. There's also one in Colombo). The first two nights the food was excellent Asian fusion food. The third night was disappointing - just not to our taste. The desserts were the same every night which could easily be improved. The swimming pool was good and cleaned frequently. Very relazed atmosphere which was a welcome change after the rigours of Yala. We went out early one morning on a boat trip not returnign until after 10.00 - providing us with breakfast even at that late hour was offered to us and was no problem.
