We stayed here two night while on the road touring Sri Lanka the staff could not be more helpful, the Rest House looks run down and in need of repair but the rooms are very clean with staff who care. It is full of old style furniture giving it an air of old colonism, we asked about planters chairs and when we came back from a walk to the Royal Pleasure Gardens there was an old Planters Chair outside our room with a member of staff very proudly showing us it, he had taken the time to get it out of storage for us. The resthouse is being restored but I hope it does not lose it amazing feel someone caring, yes it is in need of repair so dont be put of when you first arrive and it looks as if it is falling apart thats what gives it its feel of untouched by those that want everything
