We stayed at the Residence hotel for 3 nights at the beginning of our trip around Sri Lanka for our Honeymoon (Late 2019), We flew from London and had obviously just had a hectic couple of weeks so this was the perfect place to relax and unwind. Room & Hotel - The room was great, furnished well, clean and tidy, sorted for us twice a day and so comfortable, we stayed in one of the Parks suites. there was plenty of space to sit by the pool, in the bar and in the reception area, all of which were comfortable and quiet. Food & drink - food was excellent, a modern twist on Sri Lankan cuisine, we had breakfast and an evening meal and would highly recommend eating here, even if you aren't staying! the waiting staff were attentive and we felt well looked after. Drinks in the bar - the barman was an excellent host, he made us feel comfortable, we tried several different cocktails that were recommended to us and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Staff - all of the staff were attentive, catered to our requirements and helped out booking taxis etc. if required. Location - the location is a perfect base to explore the city, you can do loads on foot and are close to a couple of really interesting temples. you can grab a tuktuk pretty much anywhere Obviously this hotel is pitched at a certain place in the market and is expensive when compared to lots of other local hotels, however it is definitely a justified price point and still remains a reasonable cost!!
