      We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Our kids were extremely happy because the internet was great--the first hotel in Sri Lanka that we could say that about. The food was good, the beds were comfy, the staff were all really friendly. We even had visitors on our balcony--monkeys. We enjoyed watching them, but we were also told to keep our doors closed because they would come inside if we didn't. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, and the view was lovely.

      Beautiful location. Comfortable stay. Just 2 things that makes me not give any rating better than 3. 1. Lack of additional blankets owing to full capacity in the hotel, not acceptable 2. Not so great food.

      ... variety as well as the exceptional flavour that indian cuisine possesses. For lack of a better term, it was bland. Other than the curry, it really was lacking in spice. They barely even use salt and pepper. I started putting salt on my food to make it somewhat flavorful and this is something I NEVER do! Later that evening, of course, we enjoyed some more liquid refreshment. The boys really liked their beer as well as a home made brew of liquor called slivovitz. I tell ya, ...

      Kandy - Good food, not much else.

      The traditional way a curry is served is with the main curry dish accompanied by white rice and can be served with up to (but generally less than) 9 small side dishes. They generally include dahl curry, coconut sambal, spiced eggplant, potato/green bean curry, spiced and diced spinach/greens, some fresh tomato and cucumber ...

It was made even more difficult by the empty, silent, total darkness, as we had no idea what the landscape around us was like, how far from the top we were (or the bottom for that matter), or even what lay just a mere metre in front of us. At one point, perhaps as it was out of season, there was a three metre long muddy uphill slope where steps had once been and were yet to be repaired, so we were left scrambling through the first, clinging on to a battered up rope. ...

People bring babies to be blessed as well as offerings of flowers. The rest of the temple ground was really impressive as well. About 200 monks sitting in the center taking part in the chanting.
