Shanelo hotell
Väldigt fint hotell som var relativt nybyggt. Jättefina och stora rum med stor balkong. Lagom stort hotell med kanske 10 rum. De erbjöd sri lankisk frukost om man ville ha det. Hotellet låg nära huvudgatan och stranden på nära håll. Ändå hörde man inte trafiken. Enda smolket i bägaren var trycket i duschen, men det har många hotell i dessa länder.

Mycket bra hotell med utmärkt läge
Bodde här 2 nätter. Hotellet och läget överträffade våra förväntningar. Det ligger på en lugn liten sidogata nära till shopping, restauranger och stranden. Hotellet verkar relativt nybyggt. Rummen var rymliga med skön säng och välfungerande AC. WiFi fungerade bra. Duschutrymme med avgränsning med vägg och dörr. Bra med fungerande både varmt o kallt vatten. Balkongen fin men fanns mygg där. Personalen trevlig och serviceinriktade. Hjälpte till med att ordna transport till Kandy. Frukost ingick och den var bra. Bestod av juice, frukttallrik, omelett eller stekta ägg, toast, smör och marmelad samt kaffe eller te. Ska bo här igen innan hemresan om möjligt
