It was a good stay on a long weekend. Traveled by train to Galle and got into a tuk and the tuk guy was familiar with the hotel name. It is 3 minute drive from the town and completely hidden on top of a small mountain road. It was very convenient to visit Galle fort at night, Unawatuna beach &...

Do not even contemplate staying in this hotel. Public areas need a good clean. Bedroom was hot, smelly toilets and the bath was out of action due to a huge crack. Some parcel tape to try and hide the damage! Avoid and pay a little more and stay in the fort area. Hotels are a little more expensive, but anything...

I was tired and I told them to help us bring our laggage together. but the manager and the staff just passed by on the other side and they didn't help us. (they just call tuktukㅡ it's only 50meters) this hotel is never worth 50$. room is not bed. but service is the worst

It is not our policy to bring guest luggage from another hotel to our hotel even if the distance is less than 50 meters. We are extremely sorry, but the only way we could have helped you was finding a tuktuk. I hope you will understand.

This property has the potential to be called a Villa provided there is more attention spent on maintenance of facilities such as Air Conditioning and Plumbing. On the plus side, the Staff were extremely friendly and courteous. The Meals were great. As we occupied both rooms in the upper floor, there was privacy and the pleasure of using the top...
