Its a beautiful property in need of major refurbishment. Your met with a wall of ants crawling through out the hotel lobby as you check in, We had rented the Manbatton Suite with a private plunge pool their highest category. The suite when we entered was hot and you could instantly smell the dampness in the walls. The suite has 2 bedrooms as we where traveling with our son. We where shocked to see that the AC in his room had leakedand the floor was full of water. The plunge pool was very dirty and no one had cleaned it for a long time. When my wife tried to use the coffe machine a lizard popped out to welcome her. We asked for a full refund and this was denied. The staff tried their best to accommodate us by giving us another room for my son to sleep in. The staff are super friendly and they really felt bad for us but it was out of their hands. On the other hand the food was very tasty and the gardens are beautiful.

A truly special property
It really is superb. An old colonial manor, beautifully converted into a hotel, capped with fantastic service. The rooms were spacious, very comfortable, and very quiet. My only regret was I could only stay one night. When travel back Sri Lanka, I'd definitely stay here again.

A boutique and tranquil experience, set in beautiful gardens and surrounds. 15 mins to the airport so a great place to start or end your trip in Sri Lanka. Our only regret is that we only had one night here at the end of our trip. The staff are really friendly and helpful, great pool area, extensive board games, great food with wide variety available and the staff packed a generous breakfast for us when we had to leave at 5am to catch our flight. The room was great, generous size and large bathroom and we had a private garden. Would stay here again.
