Upon arrival, we were disappointed with our rooms. The room was clean, but basic. There was one other couple in the hotel on our first night and we were the only couple in the hotel on the second night. It was good to have the swimming pool to ourselves.
The food took a long time to arrive, but was very tasty upon arrival. Portions were large. At first, the staff did not seem very friendly and they spoke little English. However, the staff did everything we asked of them (towels, pillows and more). They also taught us some Sinhala.
In summary, this hotel reminded us of the Marigold Hotel in the film. It is a good place to stay for a couple of nights, but maybe not longer.
