What people say

One of the cleanest hotels where I have stayed in Sri Lanka. Since it was the first I was surprised at the bathroom but they are almost like that everywhere in Sri Lanka: small and not modern. The shower is in one corner and there is nothing separating it from the rest of the bathroom and ergo the water will spread. However it is like this in most hotels (which are not big western hotels). The staff is very friendly. They give you a glass of fresh juice in the morning together with the sri Lank.
