We started our 11 day tour of Sri Lanka here for 2 nights and found the place to be a lovely starting point! The hotel has some great history, is a beautiful place, and is close to Colombo, if in need of a little renovation in the rooms. However, the pool, restaurant and bar facilities were great, just what we needed after a long flight, and the food was very good (we tried both the buffet and a la carte). The hotel also has great views, and the staff we lovely. I'd recommend it for a few nights if you what some charm and to experience a bit of old Sri Lankan hospitality.
