Stayed here for 2 nights. Didn't pre-book. We just turned up and got a good rate. This is a newish hotel and it has themed rooms. We got the Butterfly room on the 3rd floor. We laughed so much at the start but it was pretty cool and funky. Brightly painted, massive big butterfly mural on the wall that lit...

This hotel has huge potential to be amazing. They have tried to be unique with theme rooms, but some of the workmanship is very poor and it just lets all the staff that are so friendly and helpful down. I will start with the positives for travellers and add the little things that need fixing for the management. The beds...

We stayed here for 3 nights on a visit to see the sacred city of Anuradhapura. The hotel is perfectly situated for access to everything there is to see. All of the rooms are decorated to a different theme. Our room had beautiful wooden floors, large dark wooden furniture and the most enormous comfortable bed. The bathroom had the biggest...

This hotel will be unlike anywhere you have ever stayed before. The owners have made every room unique and given each one it's own theme and design, all of which are completely over the top in one way or another. The hallways have speakers which pump ABBA 24-7. Yes. Your bed will have no fewer than 10 pillows, guaranteed. The...

I find the staff is very friendly, attentive, helpful. I did not have any issues with them from the booking onward. Rooms are comfortable with all amenities, tea/coffee making facilities. We booked on HB basis. However, I am very disappointed about there meal services. We had to wait more than 1 1/2 hours to get our simple dinner (which we...

A new conception of rooms in Sri-Lanka.You have to see the rooms to appreciate it. Very Beautifully done & very colourful & it is a theme that is not seen anywhere in Sri-Lanka. The Brightness might be too much for the older guests. Kids would love this conception. Mr Sharada Rupasinghe(hope I have got the name correct) took time off...

The hotel certainly needs the renovation they are completing . We were told they are closing for the next 3 months to do just that. Extending upwards, renovation to the exsisting rooms and a swimming pool to be added. We enjoyed our stay, there were a few things that had to be attended to but the staff were just superb.....
