stayed for 3 nights after a tour of Sri Lanka. Hotel was generally very good, particularly the pool and surroundings with lots of shade under the trees. The restaurant was pleasant and the standard of food was high.
Two things let the hotel down: the room we initially had, on the first floor (room 212 I think), smelt musty as soon as we walked in and it turned out the bedding was very damp when we got into bed. Fortunately we were offered another room the next day; this was on the second (top) floor and was absolutely fine. Another couple on our tour had the same problem with damp in their ground floor room. The other issue was bar facilities during the day; the main bar near reception had outdoor seating but it was in full sun, inside was swelteringly hot but the staff said they could not turn on the air conditioning! This meant the only usable daytime bar was at the pool, which obviously got very busy at peak times with a long wait to be served.
The above points do need to be addressed, otherwise the hotel is a nice place to stay for a few days R&R.
