Very impressed with this hotel and the staff. Everyone in Sri Lanka has been friendly and helpful but here they really go the extra mile. The hotel is located right at the beach, has two good swimming pools and some nice green areas. The rooms are lovely, beds extremely comfortable and bathrooms good (not sure if all are the same, but we welcome a simple shower and not a shower in a bath as in many (even new) places. Restaaurant very good and nice airy location.

... beach in the early afternoon and I got some more roti/kottu from the street, then had to catch a train to Colombo to meet Ben. My roti took so long to come that I was worried I would miss my train. I got there at the scheduled departure time, 3.30, but the train didn't even arrive until 4.15 luckily! A Sri Lankan boy decided to help me, showing me to the third class carriages and finding a seat. I probably would have just sat in the second class area ...
... I am giving him and at this point we have spent an hour driving around in what should have taken 8 minutes. He then gets a phone call back from the owner of the guest house and pulls over at the side of the road. He can clearly hear the owner telling him to give us the phone but he doesn't, so we then take the phone off him. After speaking to Jerry the owner of the guest house, he tells me that he asked the driver to give us the phone right at the beginning. Supposedly the ...
