Very good 8.0
The service was excellent. The rooms very old but clean

Serendipity Doo Dah...
It's in the name: a grand, old, lovely establishment... Pleasant, friendly staff... Just the one Lankan restaurant in da hood: Pillawoos, with the standard fare of short eats, biriyani and so on. Very much a man scene... I could hear clearly midnight yapping from the next room, so the old walls must be thin which is surprising. One thing that bugged me was the Xmas jingles being played in the lobby and lift... Why not some Lankan mini-bus music?
