The place is a quiet place just behind an Ayurveda forest and a nice lake. The place is an old Dutch governor's house, so looks a little old and in need of some maintenance, but for the rates that they offer, seems like its worth the money. The rooms are clean and spacious, you get hot /cold water and the place is located on the main Matara-Colombo road. What I really loved was the balcony outside your room facing the lake and the forest (this is in the new building) and the arm chair to relax, listening to the birds chirping in the early morning, really wonderful. One negative would be the mosquitoes outside the room (near the pool etc). better take a repellent with you :-). The breakfast the next day was average with the standard English and local varieties.
