As an elderly person seeking a restful holiday this hotel was perfect for me. The hotel has 14 very comfortable rooms and is adjacent to a nice quiet beach and is placed on the Galle to Matara road about 10 minutes from Galle. It is an attractive building with car parking and a good restaurant with quiet piano music played...
