State Minister of Tourism, Ranjith Aluvihare said topday the conditions prevailing in the holiday resorts, circuit bungalows and hotels operated by the Sri Lanka Tourism Board were not up to the required standard and should be refurbished.

He said he inspected the tourist bungalows and hotels in Nuwara-Eliya, Bandarawela, Kataragama, Bentota, Ella, Wellawaya and Weeraketiya.

The minister said these places should be refurbished if they were to compete with the hotels and resorts operated by the private sector.

He said financial assistance could be obtained under the Enterprise Sri Lanka programme.

    WHAAAT? Isn't it the guys from the Tourist Board who go around the country assessing private sector hotels and telling the private sector to improve their standards or lose their classification? Typical Sri Lankan vedi bana.

    Is there any SL State managed institution manged to required standards in Sri Lanka.

    All state run institutions are in very poor standards. It is better to hand over them to private sector and make some gains.

    In these hotels service also like in a government department. There is no quality service, the rooms are not up to standard and so is the food.
