If you like peace and tranquillity then this is the hotel for you. Only a small number of rooms which means not inundated with other people. We stayed 6 nights and never more than 3 couples there at any time, some nights only us but it was end of April which was just out of season.
Hotel is an enlarged and modernised old colonial property but keeping the decor in the colonial style set in peaceful surroundings and if you want a change of scenery then Galle is only 10 minutes away by tuc-tuc.
Staff couldn't do enough for us and always on hand if you needed anything . Particularly good was Rohan who catered for our needs along with his team including Rayan who smoothed our way. The manager was a great help and a friendly, chatty guy who spared his time daily to check we were ok.
The ideal spot for a romantic hideaway .... it has no restaurant or other facilities, breakfast can be ordered .... one can use the superb pool at the lighthouse hotel (1km away) ... and also the restaurants there for the board purchased .... very humid ... you would stay mostly in your room I would say ... or walking the gardens with local produce outside ... not recommended for a single lady ... due to remoteness ....
