If it had not been for this Hotel we don't think we could have stayed as long as we did. Marissa is not our cup of tea, great for those who like to party tho.
The staff were very accommodating and tried their best to accommodate us in a room with a balcony even though we hadn't requested this in our booking. They managed to achieve this on the second day after we had moved twice due to me not feeling comfortable in rooms with small windows, I know I'm a diva!!!
The Hotel is spotless, the cleanest place we had been in since arriving in Sri Lanka. Attention to detail was second to none and the staff were extremely helpful, they gave us advice on how much we should pay for a Tuk Tuk and arranged a driver for our journey to Ella at a very reasonable price.
We also have to give a special mention to Madam who is the owner, of the establishment, she bent over backwards to help us when we had difficulty booking our train to Candy, and gave us advice on where to shop when we got there, avoiding the usual tourist places by going to shopping malls. We can't thank her enough, shewas so warm and friendly and really cared that we enjoyed our stay there.
