Part of a national chain this Hotel this hotel is established and has a lot of character. It's actually a complex of buildings with two rooms in each block. Its Located next to the lake, it has a colonial look about it with monkeys running around and was a really nice place to stay. The whole place was run to a very high standard and was definitely a top end option.
Rooms are large and nicely decorated, it's not modern. Again it's very colonial with wood floors but decorated to a high standard. Beds are very comfortable and you even get a choice of pillows which is a good touch. All the staff were very friendly and helpful.
The restaurant is in use main building and has an excellent buffet of currys. It overlooks the large pool which was perfect for a dip after sightseeing. Breakfast was good and included a wide range of foods.
The hotel is conveniently located for visiting Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, Dambula. We like to get out and explore normally but there really didn't seem anywhere to go in the nearby village on a night. There are lots and lots of people here on bus tours so there is a high turnover of people.
We came here straight from the airport as we weren't interested in Colombo, it was against our travel agency's recommendation but as we arrived mid afternoon we had already lost the day, it was great getting all the travelling over with, missing the obligatory elephant orphanage and not having to drive through the sun on our first day.
Would recommend organising elephant safaris and massages via local guides (we used our taxi guy) who seemed to offer a better service at a cheaper cost.
