Recent guest reviews

A well known and somewhat famous old hotel which has almost an iconic and nostalgic air as it seems to have been always there. Lovely location, easy drive from Colombo, on way to airport. I believe currently fully refurbished. Lovely genuine Sri Lankan service with a smile. Beach Frontage.

We group of 16 stayed in this Hotel for 2 nights and were extremely pleased with the say and hospitality. They offer free wifi..rooms are clean, very good gym with trainer... I would have been more happy if they had full size swimming pool. They have large open area to walk around and hold parties. They have another restaurant where you can order A La Carta and over look the Indian Ocean. The Hotel has access to beach... though i wouldn't call it a beach, as it has very small area to move walk around. But overall happy with the stay. Our group was vegetarian and our special thanks to the Chef who ensured personally that we do not stay hungry and served pure vegetarian food.

Just stayed one night the room was clean, well maintained and free wi-fi in the room. There was a pool but small, could see the beach from the room. Morning was served in buffet, the fruits were fresh. I used pickup from the airport to the hotel and wasn't that far. So if you need a place for a short stay from the airport, this can be good choice.

We stayed overnight, checking in, in the afternoon of the 1st March 2018 and checked out after lunch on the 2nd. Chathura at the Front Office was most helpful, and when he learnt that it was in celebration of our 45th wedding anniversary he went the extra mile for us with an anniversary cake and decorations.!! We found the staff attentive and polite. anxious to please, from the doorman and porter to the restaurant, bartender and pool staff. ( I.e. whoever we encountered). The buffet meals were also very good with a wide array, that one is spoilt for choice. Thank you to everyone for a relaxed and enjoyable albeit brief getaway. We hope to come again.

Very friendly welcome after our arrival, to spend there one night before our flight home. After that we were disappointed from the hotel - humid and smelling room in ground floor, even the equipment was ok. Not very friendly and smiling staff in the restaurant. The biggest dissappointment come morning, when we went to see the beach - it is very dirty and not kept at all. Outdoor areas around the pool would need as well some changes, as well swimming pool, which is old, including sunbeds.

Attend to a one of friends wedding and I must say wedding reception lunch buffet was fabulous. Food was hot and looks appetizing and also delicious. Staff not well trained. Banquet hall is cosy n charm.

It has been great pleasure staying at the hotel. We enjoyed incredibly delicious food. Nice hotel in a beautiful garden, close to the beach frendly and helpful staff. Hotel is situated in quiet place , fare from trafic.

13 of us stayed there for a night arriving at midnight. Check in was prompt and service is really good. Room size is good even for 3 pax. Cleanliness however could be better. Bathroom tiles are blackish and towels & bedsheets do not look clean. Breakfast choice was good. Pool & surroundings are nice
