Take Care to avoid injury
As soon after checking in,we were guided to our room and on entering through the Doorway, I knocked my Leg .on the corner of the Bed ,which is quite sharp edged,resulting in my skin coming off. The cause of this happening is because the Mattress is about 6" shorter on the Left side,Right side and from the Foot of the Bed. The Hotel should warn the guests accordingly or fit out the Beds with Mattress to fit the framework. The Manager and Staff immediately got me Ice to apply on the wound and thereafter rendered First Aid.

Poor 2.0
Not a 4 star hotel..very disappointed
My partner and I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and we were very disappointed as it is not a 4 star hotel as stated and not close to any attractions. In our opinion it is a basic b&b place which we would probably rate a 2 star. The hotel is situated quite high up the hill so it is not as close to the temple of tooth or the lake or Kandy town. The bathroom was all clogged up and it was the same in another room we were moved to on our second day. Bedside mats were towels which looked like they were not cleaned. The drivers who work for the hotel are utterly expensive so don't be fooled to book tours with them. Breakfast was basic but dinner wasn't great at all. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
