Nice environment, privacy, . Pool is nice and outdoor, best way to relax and enjoy vacation. Good selection of breakfast and dinner provided. Breakfast was the best ever had!!! Nicely presented with many varieties. I think it's not comparable with other but it's definitely one of the best .Peaceful place to stay if u want privacy.

Stayed here for lunch on our trip into Kandy, food was wonderful, the owner had not long bought the hotel and took great pride in his food and hospitality, while we did not stay there we had access to a room which was immaculate and well presented. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
