    Lovely hotel but they overbooked our room

    We were overbooked so the room with balcony which we booked via hotels.com (which was prepaid) was available. Very disappointing as we ended up being put in an inside room with no balcony/patio. After discussing with manager we were moved to another room but only after 2 days, which meant us packing and moving out luggage not ideal. So please be careful if you book through hotels.com or Expedia as all the rooms they sell should have a balcony but you may be put in an inside room. Despite the room issues we did like the hotel, the staff were very accommodating and breakfast was fantastic. It’s a shame about mix up with room as we probably would of returned.

    Charming little gem

    Great staff, so friendly. Lovely large room, a little rough around the edges but all the more charming for it. Everything worked! Breakfast was good, good choice and super staff serving. Yoga available 8-9.30 for 1500LKR if that's your thing. Small pool but everything you need ie:- water, sunbeds etc. Location is great, tucked away from the busy main road yet only an easy 5 minute stroll to the beach and shops with plenty to offer.

    option possible

    pas forcément facile à trouver la 1ere fois car il existe 4 établissement du même nom l'hôtel est effectivement dans un écrin de verdure ce qui ne présente pas que des avantages en raison notamment des singes jouant sur le toit au petit matin et satisfaisant leurs besoins sur la terrasse pour le reste chambre vaste et confortable, l'entretien laisse un peu à désirer, bon pdj mais diner en revanche médiocre et cher

    Tolles Hotel mit super Service

    Das Hotel war rundum super. Wir waren für eine Woche dort und waren sehr zufrieden. Ein besonderes Highlight war der Kochkurs mit dem Chefkoch, der mit uns traditionelles Rice and Curry gekocht hat. Das Superior Zimmer war sehr sauber und der Zimmerservice hat uns täglich mit neuen Handtuchkreationen überrascht.
