One night stay
Comfortable hotel, nice pool, good breakfast. Only small criticism is concierge was no help when we asked him to book the train for us. We had to pay a tuk tuk to station and back in horrific traffic

Great Views and Location
The hotel was great. Although slightly pricey for Sri Lanka, it was quite a bargain compared to the US rates I am used to. The room was nice with great amenities, though the bathroom felt a bit dated and musty.The view from our balcony was perfection and we were able to walk from the hotel into town. We didn't get to use the pool because of weather, but it looks great. The buffet breakfast was delicious, but be forewarned that if the hotel is crowded, lined can form up for food. I'd recommend skipping the hotel dinners in favor of local restaurants.
