    They charge around a 1000 Lankan Rupees for driver accommodation. The breakfast was included in our charges and it was a quite decent spread for vegetarians.. nice food. not sure about Jain food.

    No, Jain ethics are not part of the usual food choices at this hotel but as they are a very helpful and accommodating team I feel sure if you stated these preferences beforehand they would do their best.
