Positives: location, walkable to all that old Galle Fort has to offer. Interesting history of the hotel itself. Pool to cool off in . Room was large. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was great (did not eat any other meals here)
Negatives: pool has a dreadful old drain/sewerage smell at the far end (not in the pool itself- but could be from the drainage vents on the end/side?). Shower and sink in the room could do with a really good clean. Sink had a crack right across it. Mosquito net is looking really shabby. Feels rundown rather than heritage. Table in the Main lounge area was actively being eaten by insects while we were being checked in. requested transport to the train for early morning to be told no problem tuktuks here all the time . Did speak with a driver who did not turn up ( the only transport arrangement we had in 3 weeks of travelling that did not turn up). And no other vehicles in sight. Did send a staff member down the road to try to find something . Fortunately we had time to spare.
