+ Rooms are clean and large. That's about it. Good luck if you get hot water.
I can sympathize with the review below as I had a similar experience, but worse. Not only should locals avoid, but anyone that is not Caucasian. The owner/manager is not fit for purpose and put a sour taste to our stay here. Plenty of other better places to stay in the area. Avoid. Oh yes, the rooms back on to a filthy river and right next to that is the railway line that will keep you up late and early in the morning.
- CRUCIALLY, there was no hot water on two consecutive occasions so we asked the manager what was wrong. His attitude was very bad and didn't bother to investigate. Next day I pressed him on this and his response was that nobody else (read Caucasians) seems to complain about hot water - only people from INDIA seem to! Needless to say this guy has issues and seems like a closet racist (seems like he prefers non-asian people despite being asian himself) and a nasty piece of work on top of that. He has clearly had to deal with this water problem before so flew off on one when I as an "Indian" brought it to his attention. He told me to go find another hotel (the night before I was due to leave) if I am not happy with the hot water not working. Very professional and charming indeed! Be on guard with anything that he says. He is rude to both men and women. The alleyway leading to the property is not safe at night for ladies. The review below is correct, the common areas is used as a TV room and the children make a lot of noise.
A very bad vibe from the manager - thinks he can pull wool over people's eyes. As we left, he didn't bother to see us off or express any remorse for his racial slur. Had a great stay in Sri Lanka apart from staying at this place. Caveat emptor!
