We were due to stay at this property for an overnight transit from Colombo.
We booked two rooms on the premise that it was within a short walk to/from the airport ferry 'terminal'. It was very difficult to find as most of the 'roads' are little alleys making it difficult to judge which one to turn at. Needless to say we were lost and it was approaching 2330. After a 30 minute detour, and sweating like pigs in the heat, we eventually found the Kaani Lodge only to be told they were overbooked.
After a walk to the main road we were whisked away in a taxi to the Marble Hotel (supposedly a sister hotel - which I doubt) which was probably slightly better accommodations (still basic) than we would have received at the Kanni Lodge and we were able to have them at the same rate as what we would have paid originally.
Overall, this property is very difficult to locate, particularly at night, and due to the overbooking situation, this has been reflected in this rating.
