    Beautiful hotel, excellent staff, managed to the highest standards. A brilliant introduction to Sri Lanka. The only drawback is the price.

    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    Enjoyed the fact that I was at a historical site by the Arabian Sea . Sitiing at the Verandah for breakfast & later by the pool were the highlights . The rooms are so poorly lit and actually felt a wee bit dingy . I couldn't even use make up properly as the lighting was poor ! There was a musty smell ( Please allow sunlight into the rooms) My husband picked up a cold ! Bedding and pillows uncomfortable . I don't like to say this but , I think GF is living on past glory . Please spruce up the place, Refresh and allow light into place . Also, please don't twirl electric lights on the barks of the beautiful coconut trees on the beach . Let them be. I hope that my feedback will help GF perk up . Regards.
