More like 1.5 star
We stayed here 2 nights. 1.5 stars is more realistic. At $70usd per night it is overpriced like most properties in Nuwara. We had problems with no tv channels (second night same problem but then a new sky box was put in and we had tv, why wasn't this done the first night?),leaking roof in bath area, room safe didn't work, curtain had a foul smell coming from it and the whole place felt grungy. The breakfast was mediocre at best. Do yourself a favour and pay extra to stay in one of the nicer hotels in Nuwara.
Stayed 2 nights in Oct 2018

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
No electric generator broke down.
Heavy rains meant that the main electric was off for 2 days. Generator not working for 2 days, Problem with the panel I was told. No electric meant no water.
Stayed 3 nights in Nov 2017

Nice hotel if you like free street music all night
Terrible night with loud music in the streets that lasted past midnight! On top of it, they charged more than what I booked via Hotels.com. Still have to resolve this issue after I return back to the US!

4/5 Good
