Hi there.....

"Seems DE‘s not much interest about your question, we are here to help you,,"

Not a fair comment i think, maybe DE's do not stay at this hotel, so therefore not right to comment either way??

Most hotels in Sri Lanka 3 star and above have what they call a "Smart Casual" dress code for thier restaurants for evening dinner, this could include "Long Attire" for men, meaning no shorts, but these days a little more accomodating in this respect, and some do indeed allow tailored shorts, BUT not swimwear type stuff, and most certainly not sleeveless tops...

When i stayed at BBH some years ago, shorts were not allowed, but things could have changed.

Why are you constantly attacking DEs in your posts?

May I suggest that you read a little about what DEs are and esp. what they aren't.

I know DEs doing Grate job.

By the same time they promoting as I said the big companies with their names. And they hide the names of privet drivers who are known to DEs. But through PM you can get those names. Why you not publish those names on your posts? $

I know ones you ask from E&S not to promote TG tours for some reasons

(I know why) but still keep on promoting them.

But any bad comments against the privet driver then constantly condemning them..

You must use your keyboard equal for all.

Back to the question....Yes there is a dress code but not everyone sticks to it unfortunately - plenty of gaudy shorts, low cut sleeveless tops, flip flops etc. Am I showing my age????!!!!

Just back from 10 days staying there.
