The tour guide/driver was excellent in all respects with regards his knowledge of the Hertage Sites. Prompt and friendly at every turn, he made the six day tour worthwhile.
The first hotel we stayed at for two nights, Lions Rock at Digampathana was very good indeed with an impressive buffet for breakfast and dinner. The room was clean and tidy. The bathroom was a bit of a disaster area but functional.
The time spent at Siguriya was truly a sight to behold - we managed to make it to the top of the mountain - views were fabulous.
The second hotel in Kandy, Anna Shanthi Villa was very good indeed and well worth making note of.
The train ride from Kandy up to the tea plantation areas was excellent - do not expect the 'bullet train' - this winds slowly but surely through the countryside and is very relaxing with great scenery.
The Seventh Heaven Hotel was disappointing with the room being in a poor position and nil facilities to speak of as in fridge, tea/coffee in the room. However, dinner was superb and a very varied menu on offer.
Returning to Colombo is a long and winding road - 5hrs drive and not for the faint hearted. Our final overnight stay in the Concord Grand in Colombo deserves special mention in that it is quite disgusting in all respects and generally unfit for human habitation - be warned!
