They make fresh breakfast of your choice and one has the option to eat in the veranda or indoors. There are no air conditioners but you get a fan. You get a choice of continental, american and local Lankan breakfast.

We may have picked the wrong thing from the menu...the staff were lovely and the service great. Just don't have the chicken burger as my son did..it's vomit inducing! However the devilled prawns were 10/10.
