This was our 3rd hotel in Sri Lanka and was a good hotel choice. The view of the river is nice and there did seem to be lots of mosquitos and we did get bit despite spraying. The bathroom was dark decor and was disappointing at first but it was fine. The restuarant was good service and standard and choice of food. Again this hotel did have some large groups of tour guests but this didn't spoil it for us.
The hotel was due to close end of April for refurbishment and this was the reason given for all the special offer and lower price wines not being available- cheapest red wa £25 so we didn't bother.
We booked a spa session at the hotel which was £24 each and lasted 1.5 hours. we had head & full body massage, followed by a steam bath and then a warm bath which was full of natural oils and herbs ( it was brown in colour). We did feel better after this as had aching legs after lots of climbing steps sight seeing,
Would recommend staying here.
