Comfortable, clean with an excellent breakfast. The staff gave a warm welcome and an unasked for upgrade due to there being four of us (two children under 12). The hotel has retained the charm of a colonial plantation guest house but with the necessary mod cons and in lovely grounds. The room was large with a mezzanine floor where the children's beds were; the only minor issue was a slightly creaky bed. Like many places in Sri Lanka, the staff attentiveness and their assistance with the children was exemplary.
We didn't have the dinner but the breakfast was ample and served in a tastefully upgraded modern part of the dining area.
The hotel does back onto a school which plays some uplifting music whilst the students assemble before classes commence and there was some building work going on. A quiet lie in cannot, therefore, be guaranteed, but this was not a problem for us.
The hotel is walking distance into town, although you have to pass through the less picturesque area to get to the Victoria Park and Post Office. It is near to the Golf course and there are plenty of cheap places to eat within walking distance.
