We planned to stay 2 days here but left after 1 night. We had asked for the cheaper non-aircon rooms as it's not cold up the hill and we prefer a fan anyway. We still paid $60 for what was the worst night in our Sri Lanka trip. The room was old and tired with ill fitting door and curtains. The bathroom was beyond belief with cracked sink unit and mould (see photos). The shower was vile with a horrible old shower curtain. Elsewhere the hotel has a draughty feel. We went to the "non-smoking" bar but left because of the smokers. Breakfast was adequate but poorly displayed and tables had not been cleared. We did talk to the management on departure and said that it was poor value for money but no action was taken. We paid and left.
The pool area is OK and there are really nice views but it's quite a walk up and down to the lake. Next time we'll stay at the Hotel Suisse by the lake which is fine, has a good pool and is a similar price.
