Well, the place gives a feeling that it used to be once grand and somehow has lost a little bit of its sheen. My wife and I stayed a day, and it was mostly a good experience. The lobby has a WiFi, and checking-in was a smooth experience. We were also served a welcome drink. The room was HUGE. By today’s standards, where things are optimised for space, this room felt really big. The room was also very clean and orderly - however - a lot of things, like the lock hinges of the were old. The furniture was very woody. So you get a very ancient feeling when you are in the room. The WiFi in the room is not complimentary. It was also facing the issues at the time. The food was really good! We attended the buffet for lunch and dinner. It’s in the lobby. The serving staff are very courteous and pay attention to each of the table. The food was a mix of Sri Lankan, Indian and European cuisine.

Our first stop in Sri Lanka. Our Rooms were fantastic. Service, staff and food (breakfast) was excellent. Staff so friendly and welcoming, made us feel straight away that SL was a great place to visit. Only stayed 1 night but we were made to feel safe and looked after.

We stayed here on our first night in Sri Lanka, due to our evening arrival. We were met by a pleasant greeting at reception and were promptly checked in and taken to our room. The rooms are of a very good standard and very clean. There was a message written on the TV screen, welcoming us, which was a nice little touch and some complimentary chocolates. We were very tired after two flights from the uk, however we went down to eat in the buffet restaurant, which was well laid out and had a good choice, we also had breakfast. Both meals were very nice with a good choice / options. The pool area and outside seating looked nice, however it was night time and we didn’t really get chance to use it. Overall we had a very good experience at this hotel and would recommend it. Although please remember we only used it as an overnight stop before we set off on our tour of Sri Lanka. I cannot really comment on its location or the surrounding area.

Upon arrival we were welcomed like we had been coming for years.A special mention front staff was amazing.we were addressed by the name.this is a hotel I would like to recommend.thank you ramada I am coming again

We stayed at this hotel on the last day of an organised tour of Sri Lanka then stayed on for a further two nights before flying home to Australia. This hotel has everything you need for a pleasant stay. Spacious comfortable rooms, nice breakfasts with plenty of choice for both local and western tastes, a nice pool etc. We had a room on the 6th floor with a nice outlook. The staff are very welcoming and helpful.

Staff is very friendly. Rooms are nice and spacious and the restaurants offer plenty of eating options. You ca n easily spend a day or two lazing by the poolside and enjoying the good service. It is centrally located which is an added advantage.

I stayed for 4 nights, my choice of hotel being based on price and location. The location is perfect; just a couple of minutes walk to Galle Face Green and walking distance from the temple I wanted to visit. The hotel decor in the corridors was brown and tired looking, as was the decor in the room. The room was a good size, with two 3/4 sized beds (they advertised 2 double beds, but as I was staying alone, this size was adequate). The bathroom was a fair size with a good shower, though the towels were tired. The complimentary toiletries were OK apart from the hair conditioner - bring your own! There were two very old, dirty-looking and stained chairs in the room, which I think would be best removed. The pool is quite small but clean and warm.It is not very private though - lots of people walking to and fro all the time. Breakfasts were very good - I loved the Sri Lankan selection with fresh curries and relishes,, hoppers, milk rice and even freshly cooked egg hoppers one day. They also made fresh dosas at breakfast time. The staff are what made this hotel memorable for me - especially the reception staff who were always friendly and went out of their way to help. They also gave me a very early check-in which made my first day much more comfortable as I’d arrived early in the morning.

The staff are very nice and warm. The room i stayed in is cozy. Ambiance wise is good. Food is nice too! Its a nice and cool place to stay in. Will definitely go back and highly recommended to travellers.

Arrived following a flight from the UK and was very warmly welcomed by both the porter and reception staff. After a short time at check in we were shown our room which was very comfortable and cool. Bathroom was clean and excellent drench shower, bed hard but comfortable. Dinner was a buffet style and all food well cooked and delicious. Very reasonable prices with friendly staff, will definitely book again for our outbound flight.

This Hotel stands out in modern rooms with ample space for a family in a TRPL Most of all ambience and great food in restaurants for buffet and room service stands out. They have an array of Indian, Arabic, Lankan, international food selection compared to most. Only drawback I would say is the reception guys. FO guys (no ladies on sight) are too stuck up and didn't want to check before saying NO. I did ask during my check in if tonight is buffet dinner to pay n eat (31 March) Saturday and the guy at FO said no buffet. When we family walked out to eat outside we saw a full buffet on display and asked F&B guys why reception said no, they were laughing! Sync between departments is key. Spotless Hotel and clean n nice rooms.
