Our experience is similar to others who have recently reviewed the Gimanhala. The staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. There are good mosquito nets and clean rooms but the bathrooms could be better. The breakfast was good - we didn't eat lunch there although I noticed it was really busy with tours. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and the food was OK. We used their bikes to visit the caves and cycle round town. We also went for a walk at the back of the hotel and it was a great place to see birds especially the kingfishers.
