This hotel is set in a pleasant, quiet location about 10 minutes outside Kandy. It is like an old manor house which the owners are trying to update and they have been successful in doing this up to a point. Our room had an excellent bathroom with the latest fixtures and fittings but the bedroom itself left much to be desired. Redecoration was badly needed and the mattresses, although clean, were of the cheapest quality and did not make for a good night's sleep. The evening meal was reasonable and with regard to breakfast, it is best to stick to the fresh fruit and juice. This is the one hotel throughout our tour of Sri Lanka that we found disappointing although the staff, below managerial level, were delightful and did their best to please.
