Of the 6 hotels we stayed at in Sri Lanka this was the only hotel not a 4 or 5 star 'international' hotel - but I think I enjoyed it best of all.
First of all I should point out there are 2 types of rooms, newly renovated rooms and grotty unrenovated rooms. The renovated rooms are excellent, No problems at all and more comfortable than some of the old 4 star 'character' hotels on the island.
Free WiFi that worked well and staff always smiling and eager to please.
Very nice swimming pool from which we saw nearly as much birdlife as on the safari trips.
Room had a nice balcony overlooking the pool with chairs.
Its a small hotel, so not the very large buffets you find at the larger hotels, but should be something there for everyone. For hotel snobs, the fact they do their own thing may be a problem. Personally I found jelly with bananas as a sweet option refreshingly down to earth, only wish more hotels would go back to basics sometimes in the restaurant.
