This Hotel was only a short drive from the airport, set in luscious grounds. We were accommodated in a modern wing with all the mod cons in the bathroom and the bedroom. We arrived there to start our tour with Saga on Sri Lankan Adventure in June 2014. Having arrived at mid day we had time to enjoy the use... More

Apart from the location being so convenient for us, transit customers, the hospitality provided was amazing. Even the In room dining menu was excellent. The thing that mostly stood out was the staff itself. I have to mention the Front Office Managers- Chaminda and Dinesh as they were very professional. Hashini and Asanka were two very friendly and cheerful individuals... More

A Decent hotel next to the airport. Lovely gardens. They have done an upgrade in recent times as I stayed here 6 years ago and now it looks quite plush. Food was ok. but you get quite bored after sunset and nothing much to do in the vicinity. Best to use as a transit hotel.

A really nice spot. The new wing looks very contemporary and swept up. Very friendly and attentive staff. The local cuisine was hot but delicious.
