10.51km from Medical Center Eravur 01AI was compelled to select this hotel as the road way to the hotel i had booked was under water due to the inclement weather. The appearance was far better than most of the hotels i checked out which were accessible. The lunch which I ordered was a simple Sri Lankan Rice and curry with crabs was very expensive and the manager was adamant on the high price and was not willing to compromise. I could have paid a few more hundred rupees and had a fantastic buffet spread at Taprobane Restaurant - Cinnamon Grand, with crabs, prawns smoked salmon and lamb etc etc The toilet seat cover couldn't be placed down (room 11), the room door couldn't be closed it had to be shut hard, the hotel needs a lot of maintenance. Staff were not in uniform. We stayed there for less than 11 hours, our beds were unused and again the manager was not willing to compromise in charging half rate. He seized the opportunity being aware that I was desperate and depended solely on the hotel for the lunch for 16 persons and accommodation for 2. This is not a trait for those in the hospitality trade, business is a win win situation and not to be ripped off. Certainly NOT VALUE for money. We were the only guests in the hotel and offers could have been thrown in, given the highly priced room rates and meals. The service was good and nothing to complain about.
