Can't work out if this is where your drivers take you to get a kickback... It was very quiet intact one of the quietest places I have been which was worrying, our driver took us there so I was a bit suspicious

This was our hub for visiting Sigiriya & Polonnuruwa, we stayed here 2x nights. The room itself did the job, we had 2x king single beds with mosquito nets, there was air conditioning. The first morning we had cold showers then that afternoon it was a huge surprise when HOT water came from the shower, this was also the same for the following morning a nice hot shower.
We spoke to another person who was staying at the same time as us and he said he only had cold water in his room.

Breakfast was included in the price of the room, which comprised of a plain omelette and cold toast with butter and jam, we also were given a fruit juice and a choice of tea or coffee. On the second breakfast I asked for the Sri lankan breakfast as we wanted to try the coconut sambal before we left the country - this was allowed by the accounts lady but she didn't look too pleased although she never did.
The girls who served your meals lacked personality, they always looked so sad and bored in their work, nothing was ever done with a smile on their faces when dealing with guests/customers.

On our last day/night the power went out in our room (and only our room) twice and then a bit later on the power went out in the whole place. Not sure if this is an isolated incident or whether this is a frequent occurrence.

We paid 4500 rupee per night and the single guy paid 2500 per night, however just take note that they add a service tax 10% to literally everything that they can (should only be put on food if anything) but they added it to the room as well.

In all we found the price to be too much for what it was was, for what we received we believe that 2500 rupee per night would have been a more realistic amount.

My guide brought us to this restaurant for dinner during my family Chinese New Year holiday. We ordered our food through the menu and to our astonishment, we were served 10 dishes including two plates of grilled seafood for five persons.

Obviously we could not finish the food and just as I expected, the bill came to about LKR 12000 ( about MR310). Whether it was intentional to load us (and to charge more), I do not know. What I know is that, common sense will dictate that there is no way we can finish the food, So, just be careful of what you order if you happen to be there.

Anyway, we have an enjoyable holiday in Sri Lanka.
