Christmas eve party issue
OK, I booked 3 months back along with Christmas eve party for two rooms 5 adult and one child 8 years old. Agoda didn't charge for the kid for Christmas party as it mentioned free. While checking out hotel staff charged $50. Also my room hot water not working. They repaired last day. 3 Rd bed and mat not upto 5 star standard.

Overrated and expensive for what it is
Good variety of food at breakfast. The local food was to a good standard. The staff were friendly and helpful.
We found that the hotel rooms needed updating. The third bed in the triple room was a wooden temporary bed and since we were paying for 3 ppl we expected a proper bed. It was overpriced compared to the other hotels we stayed at. The international food was overpriced and were not to an acceptable standard. The drinks were also the same. We were travelling from London but had national ID cards but we're still charged at international prices by agoda which is substantially more.

We had a lot of problems with this hotel, starting when we checked in. Our first room did not have the bedding we requested (and paid for in advance), it wasn't clean, and I think there was rat poison on the floor. It took three rooms to finally find a clean one with the right bed size. Nevertheless, the room needed some TLC - as though it hadn't been renovated in many years. One afternoon we returned from sightseeing to discover the pool had been taken over by a private Christmas party for kids, complete with bouncy houses and mascots, as well as a DJ playing music so loud we could hear it from our room. This went on for 4 hours. I get the sense that this may have been a nice hotel at one time, but it's past it's prime and needs a complete renovation.

Attentive staff, beautiful amenities
Relaxing SPA, friendly staff, beautiful room
The room was great with a large bed, perfectly sized (can easily it 2) and clean shower and a beautiful view on the river. The staff was super friendly and attentive. The best thing however was the SPA. I went twice and had different girls with different programs. They were very well trained, with re right pressure on either the relaxing or the deep tissue. The products they use felt great and smelled nicely. The music in the background and the brand new steam room that reminded me of the European steam rooms that I know made the whole experience very relaxing. A bit in the higher price side, but for those who come to Sri Lanka to relax, this is the place to go. (Tried one Ayurveda one downtown, but it's nothing in comparison to Ceylon SPA in this hotel)

view courteous staff food
I stayed with my sister for 15 days and it was fantastic, friendly staff from room service to management could not have done anything more to make our stay a very happy one. Only minus was the bar and extra food was extremely over priced. room service boy was extremely hard working kept everything so clean it was a pleasure to get back to our room after going out. We were sad to leave and will definitely stay in this hotel again
