This very old (250 years!) building DOES tell its time. But that puts it apart from the others around. The entire hotel needs a bit of patching up and they should make use of the empty spaces. There is so much potential here to raise the standard; plumbing, cleaner sheets, cleaner kitchen, proper curtains... for a start. However, we like... More

The fotos off the hotel are beautiful but in reality the rooms are not nice. Simple and moderate. More like a backpackkers place. The staf is friendly and service oriented. The owner is also helpful. X

Very rude gentleman who owns this hotel. Unwilling to help or treat his guests with any kind of respect! Go elsewhere for a pleasant dinner or stay. We visited here for dinner, but were very disappointed. - We were the only people eating, but after ordering drinks, no one came to take our order for food. - There is no... More

The pictures are nice but it's really faded glory with maintaining prices like it was back in the days. ..Unfortunately the rooms are not bright and colourful anymore but whitish paint with a moldy scent. The courtyard isn't maintained. The rooms are overpriced and unhealthy to stay in. It really needs fixing up a lot! I hope they will because... More

Visited here for a quick lunch. Mountain sized portions of kottu and fried rice- good value and quick service. A filling snack- also very tasty! Cheaper than a lot of the surrounding places and you can see the kottu being prepared outside- looks clean.

I didn't stay here but had lunch here. I liked the atmosphere, the street, it is located centrally. I just looked in to see the beautiful garden inside. I would have liked to stay here especially because of its location.

We booked this place since it was recommended in the Lonely Planet. It must have been a really nice place with a nice garden, back in the days when the owners actually cared. For the price they are charging it is definitely not worth satying there. The bathrooms are not clean, and we had bedbugs in our bed ( room... More

The description in the lonely planet sounds sligtly better than what this place actually has to offer. It's a bit run down and the bathrooms are not clean. However, we usually don't care ao much about that.... in general it is still too expensive for what you get. A previous rating on tripadvisor about bedbugs freaked us out a little... More

This hotel wasn't quite what we expected when we turned up. The owner seemed very confused about our booking but eventually showed us to our room. The room was okay, it had an attached bathroom, and a mosquito net. Though I have stayed in cleaner places at a much cheaper price in Sri Lanka. The location however makes up for... More

We stayed at Hotel Weltevreden for 2 nights. The room was nice even if the cleaning could have been better... The staff was friendly and helpful. There was only one annoying thing: the lack of privacy... Other guests can basically peek in your room and bathroom from the courtyard when they access their rooms...
