    Stayed while waiting for flight out for COVID-19 so not a great time for anyone. This hotel provided excellent service and support during this trying time. They had taken additional steps to protect guests and staff. Particularly enjoyed our meal in the Cuban restaurant - but sadly no live music. Hope to go back in better times.

    An older property but in a nice way, lots of character, spotlessly clean and the most lovely helpful staff. Without doubt one of the best hotels we’ve stopped in.

    Incredible pool & breakfast, lovely staff.
    The staff were lovely and helpful, room was very big, WiFi was reliable and worked within our room and by the pool. Breakfast is fantastic - choice of tradition Sri Lankan cuisine and/or Western dishes with a wide range of options for both. Also appreciated that breakfast starts at 6.30am, which means you can enjoy the buffet and still make an early train. There was a very slight smell in the toilet and doona cover felt damp when we first arrived. Room service were quick to change the doona and sheets for us.
