No shaving point (Room 307). No electrical points what so ever. What kind of a 3 star hotel has a CRT TV( if you remember what that is) with a twisted plug point inserted forcibly in to the socket.??? Food was pathetic, if not bad. Pointeless to even rate this hotel.

So I made it after a not so fun start, delayed flight followed by 12 hours of broken entertainment system, cold 'food' (yes that was deliberately in inverted comma's) and four ladies in the seats in front who seemed like they may be more suited to a posh version of 'loose woman' (those of you not familiar with this programme it is a British show with four ladies who, as I've never watched it I gather gossip about celebrities and their own ailments whilst ...
... so hopefully I will be able to capture some moments to share.
Trying to fight off jet lag and adjust to Sri Lanka time, I woke up early to a grand buffet at the hotel with some of my fellow classmates. The breakfast had traditional American fare (probably to accommodate tourists), but also a wide variety of curries, rice, noodles, and wonderful fresh fruit. Shortly there after, we headed ...
... it was a public holiday today. I was half expecting that he would add a load of extras on the meter or try and charge us double due to the public holiday, but when we arrived he charged us 314 rupees for a journey that the guidebook had suggested would cost 700-800. Clearly, metered journeys were the way forward! We ended up giving him 500, partly out of shock at how little he wanted! The cricket was free to get into and there were probably only ...
