My friends and I had lunch at a local restaurant in the city and upon returning to the hotel realized that we over payed the restaurant.

Stayed here for one night only due to its close proximity of the airport. Arrived late and had dinner from the menu.. Choose something simple but was very tasty. Enjoyed it a lot. Breakfast was average, nothing special. Wanted to use pool but due to weather decided against it but looked quite nice, as did the spa packages but again... More

We needed a hotel close to the airport for an early flight and decided to go with this hotel. I must say the hotel has had a whole new wing built 10 months ago that is both modern and spacious to complement the older 28 year old wing which was the original hotel. The hotel has a decent enough size... 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
