10/10 Exceptional

Great place
A fantastic place with the most beautiful garden. Great food and all of the staff ever so friendly. The best place to stay when just arrived from the airport or ready to leave Sri Lanka. I highly recommend it

8/10 Very good

Nostalgie. leuke inrichting en prachtige tuin. gelegen aan de indische oceaan. geen luxe voorzieningen maar een unieke sfeer. Zeer toegangelijke staf en managment. We voelden ons er goed thuis. muggen af en toe lastig maar een goede antispray helpt. Ondanks de muggen voor herhaling vatbaar. we hebben er een goed gevoel en tevredenheid aan overgehouden
