This family run hotel is about as good as it gets for the price. If you want luxury go to the Mount Lavinia Hotel. If you want clean rooms, excellent but simple food, honest staff (you see the same people year after year) then this is what visitin Sri Lanka is all about. The views from the rooms, especially the sunsets, are fantastic and it will take you about 30 seconds to cross the railway line and your on the beech.
The owner, his wife and the staff - who are treated like family - will make you welcome without hassling you. They are all genuinely friendly and between them speak several languages. I love the place and when ever I visit Sri Lanka, this is where I stay.
