Disappointing
The breakfast was the best we’ve had in Sri Lanka - we’re already missing it! And we found the bed to be exceptionally comfortable (amazing pillows…) But sadly, we asked to be in a quiet room and close to the main Wi-Fi repeater, but got neither. Apparently the staff thought that a good view was more important than what we’d asked for 🤔 so they put us right in front of the protests which was the opposite of quiet, and it was furthest from the Wi-Fi. Disaster! We also found the food, other than breakfast, to be sub-par as the head chefs weren’t present during our stay.

Good value for money!
The hotel is well located in a happening part of the city. There are a number of other 5 star hotels in the area as well including the Taj Samudra and Galle Face Hotel. The hotel is well decorated and our room faced the pool as well as the harbour. However, there was some construction going on in the harbour which spoilt the views a little bit. The hotel was also not very expensive, so it was good value for money.
