8/10 Great

22 November 2011

great location, great price!!

we stayed in this hotel for a night whilst visiting kandy and the elephant orphanage. it was great value for money, the staff were very welcoming and helpful and the views from the rooftop balcony were amazing. rooms were a little basic but comfortable, would definitely stay here again.

The best thing about my stay was...

location.
