“I couldn't wait to leave this place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

It was simply awful. On arrival nothing worked (aircon, shower, hot water, TV) but eventually things got repaired. The rooms are really basic and the photos on this website make them look better than they are. The staff were lazy and unhelpful. The restaurant was unbelievably slow. My neighbours waited one hour for a sandwich and I waited 45 minutes for a coffee.
Avoid this place if you are a female travelling alone.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

Upon arrival, we were disappointed with our rooms. The room was clean, but basic. There was one other couple in the hotel on our first night and we were the only couple in the hotel on the second night. It was good to have the swimming pool to ourselves.

The food took a long time to arrive, but was very tasty upon arrival. Portions were large. At first, the staff did not seem very friendly and they spoke little English. However, the staff did everything we asked of them (towels, pillows and more). They also taught us some Sinhala.

In summary, this hotel reminded us of the Marigold Hotel in the film. It is a good place to stay for a couple of nights, but maybe not longer.
