This is a lovely hotel with a very personal touch. We stayed as family of four of two adults and two children and stayed in a large room with two bedrooms and a living area. Spotlessly clean and modern. The hotel itself is very small and more like a very upmarket bed and breakfast. We were very well looked after, I stupidly cut my nose very badly in the swimming pool and the manager took me straight to hospital himself and made sure I was seen by the right doctor within minutes and treated. He even sorted out all the finance at the time so I did not have to worry. This was amazing service and I cannot thank him enough. The rest of the staff were very helpful and kind. We did not have the evening meal as we had a something from the lunch menu and after my accident it was all a bit too much to eat later. The price of the food on the lunch menu is very good and the food was great, we did think the evening menu was a bit pricey but we did not eat it and I am sure the quality would have been excellent.
The beds were comfortable and the breakfast very good. The gardens are beautiful and the views of Kandy quite stunning.
If you don't mind being out of it a little bit and like the really personal touch then you will love this place, if you like a bigger hotel where you can be a little more anonymous then you may find it a bit intense.
