The place is about 20 mins walk from the main bus station, so definitely a tuk tuk ride if you have luggage. But once you're bag-free it is only some 10 mins to the Temple of the tooth, so quite convenient. Do take a flashlight though if you're coming back in the dark - not much lighting on the road up to the hotel.
The rooms are clean and spacious, what I appreciated in the bathroom was an actual shower cubicle so it is divided from the rest of the bathroom (not common at all in Sri Lanka - usually the shower hangs above the toilet somewhere so the bathroom floor is flooded most of the time :)).
Do get food in town - we wanted to have dinner in the guest house but there was no staff to be found anywhere in the evening. Breakfast ok but not great.
