We were booked into the Grand Hotel as part of a prepaid tour. In reading the reviews on TripAdvisor before our departure, I was very apprehensive. My expectations were low. However, we were very pleasantly surprised.
Our room might have been one that was more recently renovated. It was large, with 2 very comfortable beds, a table and chairs, and a large bathroom with plenty of places to hang our laundry. Our room was toward the back of the hotel, making for a quiet night's sleep.
The buffet was extravagant with a large variety of dishes in both western and Sri Lankan style. One evening the hotel laid out a full outdoor barbecue, with many delicious choices.
Even though the downtown area was not exceptional, it was a very pleasant and short stroll from the hotel. If you wander downtown, be sure to get off the main drag, through the alleyways, and into the more authentic market stalls.
Staying here felt like staying in an Old English Grand Dame. We enjoyed it.
