Comfortable start to out Sri Lankan adventure
It was only a short stay as we arrived late at night and left the next day at checkout. Sudharshan was very responsive in organising transport for us both before our stay and while we were there. The room was nice, clean and they provided slippers and robes. Location was good. Walking distance to Black Cat Cafe and Cinnamon Gardens. Good value. Would stay here again.
