8/10 Very good

Hotel was perfect distance from Galle Fort and a free tuk tuk service was offered to the town. Breakfast was great with lots of options! The pool was quite dirty so we didn't use this - a cleaner pool would have made this hotel much better! We had a 'Dream Face' room which was located behind the reception desk area and had a small outdoor area with no view at all. We would have requested an 'Air' or 'Water' room in advance (both facing onto the pool) had we known. The room itself was nice however, well decorated and had a good shower. Hotel staff couldn't be faulted, they were all very friendly and were happy to help at all times of the day!

The hotel is situated about a 20 minute walk from centre of Galle. It is relatively new so the facilities are excellent. The staff are all very welcoming and always have a smile on their faces. The food at the hotel is excellent and reasonably priced. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and can recommend it.
