8/10 Very good

Comfort and location
Comfortable bed in large room, air conditioning and fan, and large, clean bathroom. Breakfast (included) was delicious, one morning was Sri Lankan pancakes (like crepes with coconut and brown sugar), fresh fruit, fresh juice and your option of egg. The second morning was dosa with curry, fresh fruits and juices. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. Location is great, many shoos and restaurants nearby, beach access is across the street.

Perfect hotel.
Cannot recommend this hotel enough. It’s a small family run hotel run by two Italian brothers. The entire hotel is spotless. Their attention to detail is fantastic. The rooms are large and modern. The room was cleaned to five star standard every day. It’s very close to the beach and lots of good restaurants and shops. The breakfast is simple but delicious. The grounds are well kept and welcoming. The staff cannot do enough for you. It’s close to the airport (approx 20 minutes) and is the perfect start or end to a touring holiday of Sri Lanka.
