ATMs/travellers cheques

Could anyone tell me how easy it is to withdraw money in Bentota. Are there any ATMs or can I cash travellers cheques easily?

Hi Rob

You can readily use either in Bentota, personally i use only Sterling Travellers cheques, you can change them at hotels and of course banks too.

Banks would give a better rate of exchange out of the 2 choices.

Come along and enjoy the festivities. From the pictures I've seen the location of the hotel is stunning.
