The Nooit Gedacht hotel really is a haven of tranquility. It is the first hotel ever where we were given a free room upgrade & where after arriving with chronic toothache the staff had arranged for me to be treated by a local dentist within 2 hours - not bad for a Sunday lunchtime (try doing that in the UK!).
The hotel is ideally placed for a short & interesting walk to Unawatuna beach (the jungle beach walk was too wet) for safe swimming, shops, restaurants & bars etc & also for a tuk tuk ride visit to Galle & Koggala. But the hotel's standard of food was also superb & we still rate the breakfasts as the best of our holiday.
The standard of accommodation was excellent & the staff could not have been more friendly.
