Stayed 1 night instead of 2. We were in the house next to the main house, which felt very strange, especially since there were no other people staying throughout the hotel and the pool (looked unclean) and games (great!) were in the main house. The hotel has lovely furnishing, and the two rooms were actually a 2-bedroom apartment (convenient) but we didn’t need that. It felt lonely.
As we were right beside the train it was a) noisy and b) left the floor incredibly black; walking from shower to bed already got your feet black with soot. Better cleaning?! Breakfast was ok. It felt strange they put us up in the adjacent house when the main house was empty. We checked out very early in the morning but did not get a refund for our second night, which is the tip of the iceberg and resulted in the poor rating. The 2nd night we stayed at the Mt Lavinia hotel for USD 20 more and were in a 20-fold x better hotel.
