    Stopped here for evening Tea on our way to Anuradhapura. Nice open restaurant. There is nothing behind the pool/only fields probably and its pitch black - was nice to see the stars in the sky. Funishings were nice too. Toilets Ok to use.

    Not very clean, poor English for all staff here, poor breackfast. They have a restaurant but for the diner is very expensive and not the best food that you can try in Sri Lanka. Their reccimandation for one lical driver was a very bad experience...More

    First of all, the building is very nice with a colonial inspired theme, beautiful backyard with a big pool and the location is perfect (the famous temple, Sigirya, etc). The food from a la carte as well as the buffet held a high quality. Staff...More

    We stayed here for a night on our arrival into Sri Lanka. Nice and decent no frills hotel. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms are decent but could have been more clean. Value for money for an overnight stay.
