Fabulous 8.6 From 16 reviews

Poor 2.0
Very different to the description in their listing
The room was largish and somewhat comfortable but the listing said “balcony or patio with hill views” but the closest it got was a foot-wide ledge outside the window (i.e., I would have to climb out the window) with views only of surrounding hotels. The listing said “day bed and desk” - there was no desk and only an armchair with an uncomfortably thin seat. It also said “flat-screen TV” but it was an old small TV and even the part of the listing that says “free toiletries” is a lie. Staff didn’t know what I was talking about when I complained and I can’t find any photos online that suggest that any of their rooms match their description. The bathroom was alright except for a very narrow shower stream and a broken toilet seat. The wifi was fast and reliable, so there's that. Breakfast was eggs and fruit - does the job but it’s the most basic hotel breakfast I’ve had in Sri Lanka. Staff were often hard to find. It probably wasn’t the worst hotel I stayed at in Sri Lanka but Carnation Rest is the most out of step with the price and with their advertising.
