the food was good. the presentation of the plate was super. the breakfast buffet was good with a range of Sri Lankan and continental choices.
The pool was out of order. The television was out of order - only 4 of the channels were working and that too the reception was very bad. was informed that Dialog would come and fix the cable tv but that never happened. zero entertainment for the guests.
Unfortunately pool was closed whilst we were there (part of reason we booked this hotel in first place) and weren’t notified of this prior to getting there. End of the day not a big deal but still would’ve been nice to know. Great stay otherwise and very friendly staff!
Superb choice in the buffet for the money. Nice food. Specially nice soup. Nice view of lake, nice garden to go with that. Good for photos
Bidget washer on the bathroom was damaged, albeit usable. There was not enough creamer and sugar packets to make tea for two. There was delay in checking out since bags were late to arrive.
Beautiful setting, food and drink was good, nice cocktails but not cheap. Lovely view of the lake
Tired hotel, in need of some TLC, stained bedding/towels, uncomfortable bed, leaking shower door, safe broke - with our valuables trapped inside!! Got in eventually after trying every key in the hotel!! Wouldn't take our dollar notes as payment due to small pen mark on note.
The advantage was the beautiful location by the lake and food for dinner.
This is not a standard of the 5* hotel. We've spent there one night but I have to say it was a disaster. The hotel is "tired", rooms not modern, furniture damaged. The air conditioning was so loud it was not possible to use it. but when you turn it down the outside units were so loud you could feel like in the factory. The towels were so dirty, that we couldn't use it. The staff was not helpful at all - they could solve the problems and inform us about the solutions because phone was not working. So they kept us waiting in the room for hours. In that time they could just go by themselves to our room. We had to walk there to ask. Not like in the proper hotel!!!
