We were told the hotel is just one minute to the beach, but it is far away from the main part. We had to walk a long way or take Tutu for any activities or meals.
The room is very small and cost 6000Rs. Weak Wifi signal. Two dogs of the owner were barking outside overnight or very early morning, so that we had very bad sleeping.
We checked out at 1pm and were asked to pay extra for late leave without notice in advance. We didn't have enough cash in rupees, and asked the staff if we could pay in dollars. The staff used 125rupees VS 1USD as exchange rate, other business owners normally used 130rupees VS 1USD, even the final deal was 128rupees after negotiation, we still felt very unhappy about their attitude. Owner and staff in this hotel are so different from people living in the rest part of Sri Lanka.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Many of our guesrs ask us why we chose such an unusual name for a Guest House in Sri Lanka. I read and enjoyed the book as a child ans was struck by the genuine character of Black Beauty. Here was a role model to be followed through life. He was well behaved, honest and thoughtful, always doing the best he could in every situation, wonderful skills we try to instill in our staff. The management chooses new team members with careful consideration and train them to reflect these characteristics. Our aim, over the last 20 years has been to provide the best service for our guests and through gentle and caring ways follow the example of Black Beauty. ... more less
