We stayed for two nights during our round trip by Sri Lanka in this hotel. Although it unfortunately very off the beaten track is located, it was very good. Since we already in the afternoon in the hotel arrived, we made a walk. We went out the hotel and to the right. There we had after a few hundred meters a great view of the Sigiriya rock. The staff were friendly and obliging and a quick dip in the pool was very refreshing. The room was simple and elegant, with a nice semi-outside bathroom.
Catering was the only problem we had with the hotel - we arrived in good time for dinner to find the dining area pretty deserted, and the food, which was buffet style, a little past its best. We also found that things were shut up pretty early. The next morning we had the same experience at breakfast - despite turning up over half an hour before its end, it was all pretty congealed, and there was no offer of anything fresh.
We noticed some big parties, so guessed that the hotel was perhaps more focused on that than on individuals/couples.
The surroundings and facilities are excellent, but the catering needs improvement, and we would only recommend it with that caveat.
