Well located but extremely dated hotel. Smelt of stale smoke and virtually no natural light. Seems to be a better version of same hotel across the road. Staff were helpful.

The staff were very interested in the game and kept finding any excuse to pop their head round the door and check the score. After the game, which Sri Lanka won, I went out to watch the England game at ...
... have a look round for nothing although it was nothing exciting. Well, they were certainly right about the second part as it really is underwhelming to say the least. As for the matter of price, the book had already proved to be inaccurate once that day in stating that the National Railway Museum charged a 500SLR entrance fee which it does not. It was published in late 2012 and I know things change all the time and that a guidebook is out of date before
