We decided to stay in this hotel after reading the comments in Lonely Planet and some comments in tripadvisor.
The hotel was empty when we were there, we booked by phone, and I would say price/quality is ok.. but not cheap.
Our room was in the basement, with two big beds with mosquito nets.
Bathroom was big, the electricity plug was very near the shower, so I was quite worried about being electrocuted while having s shower.... but nothing happened.
Everything was very clean, which is great.
Breakfast was good, with fruit, juices, eggs, .. typical continental breakfast in Sri Lanka.
Wifi worked in the room.
They say they have cable tv, but that is not as they say... You have to decide which channel you would like to watch and they will select it in reception, so you can not do zapping to choose your favorite channel...
It's a good hotel, but not as incredible as Lonely Planet says (LP in Sri Lanka is not the best guide, considering my experience!!!).
