This was a lovely hotel, a bit of colonial life that was very interesting. The grounds and garden were lovely, along with the common areas. Our room was largish and enjoyable, the only problem was the noise! Not only were there nightly concerts right on the lawn, the music/announcements from the carnival went non-stop all day and very late into the night. With the old single pane windows, the noise came right in....all the time.... The buffet was okay, we had much better in Kandy etc. The staff were very attentive, however it is a busy hotel with lots of tours, so it meant a lot of movement. One interesting note was that we were told to dress 'smart casual' for dinner, no shorts, no slippers, etc. But upon entering what is everyone and their child wearing, slippers, t-shirts, etc.. One highlight was the piano player, he was great, we quite enjoyed his music and felt bad everyone seemed to just walk by. Overall, we quite enjoyed the hotel, if only it could be a bit quieter.
