          Hi, We are looking to stay at your hotel from 19 Apr - 23 Apr. I just want to find out if we take Rajadhani Express from Colombo to Galle, will you be able to arrange transportation for us from the station to your hotel, or will it be better to take a taxi? Secondly, how long will the trip from the station to your hotel take? We look forward to your reply.
