      Don't think they can cope with the weather”

      Unfortunately we arrived on a wet and windy evening (worse than Dartmoor in February). The hotel is just not built to withstand the rain and wind and there were puddles and leaks everywhere. The restaurant and corridors were cold and drafty. The first room that we were shown to had a puddle on the floor and smelt damp and musty. Friends were staying in the room below this and the following day reported a drip from the smoke detector. The swimming pool is tiny and not heated unless the sun is out. In fact this turned out to be the most expensive hotel we stayed at in Sri Lanka, more expensive than the Heritance in Kandalama which is 5 star with very good facilities. Shame!!!!

      Could be nice ...but only average”

      The building itself is quite nice and with nice surroundings, but rest of the hotel is not really up to luxury standards as they can claim. The rooms are old, the dining area very sad, the staff are quite numerous but actually not so welcoming. Honestly, very average and not a good value for money. If you want luxury, just go for the Heritance tea factory. Yes it will cost you bit more but at least you get what you pay for.

      I HAVE BEEN TO SRI LANKA AFTER 25 YEARS AND HAD A 14 DAY TRIP. I STAYED IN MORE THAN 6 HOTELS BUT THE BLACKPOOL HOTEL IS OUT OF THE WORLD,THE CHECK IN WAS VERY PERSONALIZED, SO NICE TO HAVE A HOT CHOCOLATE AS A WELCOME DRINK. ROOMS ARE OF VERY HIGH STANDARD, I LIKE THE HEATING FACILITIES. HOUSEKEEPING IS VERY ATTENTIVE, THEIR TURN DOWN IS SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT.I CAME DOWN TO THE RESTAURANT AND THEY KNEW ME BY NAME.ATTENTION TO DETAIL AT THE RESTAURANT.FOOD IS FANTASTIC AND WE HAVE THE FREEDOM TO WALK INTO THE KITCHEN AND COOK OUR OWN FOOD. My WIFE DID SOME OMLETTES .IN GENERAL THE SERVICE STANDARDS ARE ON PAR WITH ANY TOP CLASS HOTELS IN THE WORLD.IF I DO VISIT SRI LANKA AGAIN I WILL CERTAINLY STAY AT THE BLACKPOOL, HOTEL. HOW DID THEY KNOW MY DAUGHTER’S BIRTHDAY?
