Wife and I stayed one night, at this so called 5 star hotel.
Arrived at 3pm after a long drive Colombo-Somawathiya-Habarana, desperately needing to unwind and relax. But we were kept waiting due to some booking error.
After a very long walk from the reception we were shown to a medium sized old rundown room.
the room had two single beds put together, where as i had booked a double room. i must say that the hotel staff quickly resolve the matter, but the inconvenience caused of unpacking and packing to move to a different room was not very pleasant. This room was not different from the other old and rundown. Also, the entry way to the upstair room was smelling. The Toilet, was bit stinky, the door knobs were loose and worn out. Considering a 5 star hotel the outdated 21" tube TV and the poor channel reception is disgraceful for the Cinnamon Chain. I have seen better flat screen TV's in small kottu joints (Shops).
The Food was excellent and the staff was friendly and attentive through out the stay.
This Old Shabby rundown rooms are not worth the 5 star premium room rates
