Very Good8.0
Nice, comfy stay...
First things first, from the booking itself I had the idea that payment would be accepted in USD. I had, accordingly, got a multi-currency card from my bank and loaded it with dollars. On arrival I realized that they only accept Sri Lankan Rupees. So every time I paid for a service, my bank would charge me a conversion cost that finally became a sizeable amount. Also as this card was a debit card, they only deducted the room bill. For any additional service, we had to pay either in cash or the card. In short, nothing could be billed to our room. Next the room. The room was a nice one, reasonably large and overlooking the pool and the lake. The lake itself was underwhelming, I must say. Nothing stunning as the description says. Bed was quite comfortable and the staff were excellent and courteous. Food options were good. There are quite a few restaurants serving all sorts of food. The breakfast spread was great. I would suggest to book rooms with breakfast only. A la Carte options being available, I must say dinner buffet was a bit costly. We also availed the car service to take us to Kandy for a day trip. The car, the chauffeur and everything was very well arranged and it was an extremely satifying trip for both my wife and myself. The location of the hotel can be a bit dicey. It's a 15min from the beach. So sea loving people should look somewhere else. Otherwise I would recommend.
