We booked the hotel last moment, on a Friday night at 9.00pm and left home at 10.00pm. So it was an unexpected visit for them and am sure they did not have much time to turn around the hotel for guests. Therfore, me and my husband was not expecting a warm welcome and much facilities as per the hotel rates. We reached there at around 2am and amazingly upul has kept awake to welcome us.
It was in a convinient location very near to the town but on top of a hill to keep the gueasts relaxed with a great view and awesome weather for the travellers who prefer around average 15-18C.
I have no complains about the satff and rooms. Rooms were sufficiently spacious and enough and more linen to keep ourselves warm, spacious and clean toilets too. Upul was one of the best hosts I have ever met and he kept us very compfortable. We went for two days on BB basis and the breakfast too was over our expectations comparing with the rate.
Definitely its not a fivestar hotel, but we felt homely and welcomed when we were there. The hotel was clean and good food, whcih are some of the things that the BIG Hotels lack!
I would definitely visit this place and recommend anyone to go there!
