This UNESCO-accredited hotel is worth a stop, to sit on the veranda or the courtyard. Imagine the tea-traders and colonists of old sipping a beer, complaining about the heat and appreciating the breezy, fanned balconies.

We ate a dinner in a beautiful terrace, but food wasn't what we expected for the price. Food was very average and main course was too big, we couldn't eat it all. Service was ok.

After 2 weeks in Sri Lanka we were very pleased to have some that was familiar to us from our past life living in America. Great lunch of fish and chips, chicken parmesan and Mediterranean platter. Fantastic bread and some of the best iced tea in the world.

This place gets worse every time we visit! Stayed under the old regime 8 years ago and all great! Returned in 2011 and 2012 to eat but very disappointing menu, food and service. So bad in 2012 when we went with friends that we walked out. Gave my card to the waiter but nobody ever contacted me!

Returned out of curiosity on New Year's Day early evening for a drink in the bar but the service was rubbish and the drinks way overpriced! This is such a pity as, in it's early heyday under original owners, the place was outstanding!

The jumbo prawns with chips & coleslaw - and the Vietnamese salad with curry-grilled chicken - was a 5 star lunch experience. Juicy seafood, tasty bird, fantastic marinades.... Unfortunately, we ordered machiatos afterwards - terrible!! Drink you coffee anywhere else.
