This place is like something from the Shining. It's truly awful. Firstly, I emailed and asked for a twin room. This email was responded to, so I asked to confirm my booking, and nothing. No response. We turned up anyway and found two guys who were drunk and watching the cricket. They had no idea we were supposed to be coming, despite me sending two confirmation emails. They gave us a room anyway, but it probably would have been better if they didn't. The room was a dive! There were puddles in the bathroom, the tap leaked and was wobbly, and it was just generally quite worn out. My friend and I agreed to find a new place and leave the next morning, and we're so glad we did. The foyer outside the rooms was creepy and soulless. This place could be so much better if they invested a little love and care into it. We checked out after finding a new place (Prime Time Hotel - just a bit more expensive, but so much nicer) and enjoyed our time in the beautiful Unawatuna so much more.
