Info : The Notary's House
The Notary’s House is a charming six-bedroom hotel located near Colombo’s international airport (a 45 minute drive). Set amidst large manicured gardens, the hotel borders a lake and offers a calm and serene space to relax into your Sri Lankan holiday.
The large rooms come in Standard and Deluxe categories, the main difference being the size of the living area. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and private balconies overlooking the garden and lake. The garden has a pavilion where meals can also be served and an infinity swimming pool, overlooking the adjoining lake. Design elements blend the traditional and the contemporary, with beautiful antique furniture and bespoke batik fabrics. The restaurant serves superb Sri Lankan cuisine and several western dishes too. The food is seasonal and the short menu changes regularly.
The hotel offers a range of great complimentary activities. Guided walks and trips to the local temple can be arranged and there are bikes for exploring the surrounding villages and towns. If you fancy staying put, the hotel also provides a range of board and garden games. Dambadeniya ancient Kingdom is located a short drive away for anyone wanting to further explore the historical charms of this region.
The Notary’s House will ease you into the rhythms of Sri Lanka and is an ideal option for a first or last stop after a long flight. The hotel will appeal to couples and families alike, such is the privacy the spaces afford. Two of the rooms on the upper floor interconnect to form an excellent Family Suite on request. The beautiful lakeside setting and the overall quality of the service means most clients end up extending their stay.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
This was honestly the best service I have ever recieved from any Travel Agent. I think Sam was one of the most efficient and knowledgeable travel agents I've ever dealt with and I felt confident with everything he advised me right from our first conversation.
