Cant always blame the staff
For some reason the management decided to “renovate” the hotel or their rooms on a high season. The construction started 8:30 AM, most likely on the room above, cause the drills and the hammer were pouring down on us like no tomorrow. I called the reception and the duty Manager and they tried to stop or atleast the intention was there but they never stopped till 11:30 AM. The staff and reception couldnt stop the noise, as I believe this is entirely the fault of the management that took a decision to do this kind of work in a high season

Out Dated Hotel
I travel to Sri Lanka for business about 6 times a year and normally stay at Cinnamon Grand which is 5 mind walk down the road but this time I stayed at the Taj as the event I was attending was being held there. The front office staff were very rude in their own language thinking that I would not understand. outdated lobby with a lack of dining option compered to Cinnamon Grand.
