We stayed 2 days here because the Melheim ressort had lost our booking. It is a small villa with 5 rooms that just opened in December, managed by the owners of Dutch House. The idea is to have a place to relax with good service, and to exchange stories with other guests. There is wifi, but no swimming pool and no TV. The service is certainly excellent, but a lot was still missing. Outside furniture still had to be installed. The hotel has no alcohol license. It is a few kilometers from town, were you can find this. There are no arrangements for drivers, best to arrive before dark. Lots of barking dogs at night, and a mosque wake-up call at 5:00. Garden is very nice.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Adelphi is run by the same owners as the Dutch House-Bandarawela, Sri Lanka. The Adelphi features a striking Art Deco interior. The bungalow was built in the late 30's and was fully restored in 2011. In keeping with the Art Deco theme, the five guestrooms are named after well known cinemas in Sri Lanka, Ritz, Liberty, Regal, Savoy and Majestic. ... more less
