      Where do I begin?”

      My oh my...where do I start? The stay & the room were excellent. A lil steep uphill to head to the hotel but not an issue. The staff were great. Asked for small stuff like where to get jackfruit curry (served at Edelweiss restaurant - top floor of the hotel). Short walk to town (say 10-15m?) - you can get a tuk tuk too. There's an incident that I've to mention here. My wife started bleeding (she was 20wks pregnant) on our walk back to the hotel. We head back to get our docs & the hotel was kind enough to sort the ambulance. The many, many staff assisted with what we needed and even the GM, Mr Nalin Ariyawansa, visited us at the hospital too. It was a lil scare & I didn't have to worry about the hotel side. Had to stay over at the hospital until we left but the staff were concerned even when I returned to get our stuff. Oh, the tuk tuk contacted by the hotel tried to overcharge by another LKR100 upon arrival when I went back to hospital. The lil cheek. Only letdown of our stay

      Nice place to stay”

      Rooms were good, big enough and clean. Few things to remember, no iron, dental kit was included in the room so I had to request them(no additional charges), fridge was not working in my room(I didn’t care). Breakfast was good in the restaurant. My only concern is mobile number provided by the agoda was not working, the supervisor or may be the manager in that place had few questions for me due to there own concerns when booking through agoda. My reply to them is, if you have concerns please don’t list your hotel in it. Work them out with agoda, make sure your customers have a hassle free checkin and checkout.
