We stayed here for one night during a tour of Sri Lanka. The hotel is very nice, a delightful colonial style with beautiful grounds and gardens, which transported you back to bygone days. Slightly disappointed with the comfort - the room was very nice and spacious, but in need of some minor redecoration particularly in the bathroom and the bed was quite hard and uncomfortable, but for one night it was acceptable. Nice window seat though to enjoy the view of the gardens while a wrote my postcards. The bar area was very relaxed and quirky. The reception staff were very helpful and attentive and also explained a bit of the history of the hotel which was very nice and well received. One very minor criticism relates to the food, which whilst tasty, was slightly disappointing compared to other hotels we had stayed in on the tour and did not quite live up to our expectations. Dinner was a set menu which offered quite a fusion of flavours which didn't in our opinion necessary go well together (and other diners made similar comments) and the breakfast choices were a bit limited compared to other hotels, but were tasty nonetheless. The gardens were absolutely lovely, very well kept and cared for, and well worth a walk around to admire the many flowers, plants and topiary.
