Amazing experience, I will be back!
I loved this hotel so much. The hotel itself was beautiful, clean and historic. The pool was amazing and the grounds were great. Above all of it was that the staff was so incredible. They were helpful and kind. I was traveling alone and the restaurant manager was completely helpful to me, giving me tips and also prepared a special seafood meal for me that was one of the best i have ever had. I will definitely come back here next time im in Sri Lanka!
Amazing seafood platter.
Breakfast!

A beautiful property, the highlight was dinner in the garden, and the monkeys jumping from tree to tree around the pool, the children loved it, we wished we had stayed for longer than 1 night. This is the second time we have tried Asia Leisure properties and they always meet all our expectations.

Beautiful, tranquil hotel with lush gardens
This is a superb hotel in every way. The plantation home is full of charm, interesting architecture and furnishings. The gardens, pool and courtyards are beautiful, tranquil, and full of wildlife and flowers. While we had a cocktail overlooking the pool, we saw a parade of monkeys, wild peacocks, and many other birds. The rooms are spacious and gorgeous, as are the bathrooms, and everything is in impeccable condition. Finally, the restaurant food (we had 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts at the hotel) was excellent.

A beautiful old hotel. The architecture is stunning. The pool area is especially lovely. The staff are the best I have experienced in a long time; very accommodating... always there with a smiling face ready to help you. The bar men serve the best Dry Martini's in Sri Lanka! I highly recommend staying here if you want to be out of Galle Fort for a change.

6/10 Good

WORK TO DO
Overall an ok visit. Staff were good. Very quiet with only 1 other couple there for 1 of the 2 nights. Plenty of staff there and I wonder why the pool could not have been cleaner. It was a poor look!!!. The top edges of the pool were too dirty all around and surely with no guests it should have been pristine. As for the room... my door had a very low height which is bizarre. I whacked my head twice before i could see the prolem !!! Please warn your tall guests. Also, the bathroom was like a sauna and very uncomfortable. Once again..why ??? You rate yourself 5 star..Mmm. Big room could have had a desk, no wine glasses there, old small fridge, bathroom has a crazy big shower area so water went everywhere. Be ok if u have a cricket team staying in the room. They could have a shower and sauna at the same time. Aircon unit in room very noisy too. Upside was the bar and the food I had was excellent.

A Haven of peace
This former British officer's mansion is an amazing place to stay near Galle's...less than 5 minutes by tuk tuk...I love the high ceilings in the lobby and the rooms.. Everything was super clean and the service wonderful. We even had a peacock in the garder entertaining us during breakfast. I really enjoyed the long swimming pool. It was nice to relax there😀
