We stayed one day at the beginning and one at the end of our 2 week trip to Sri Lanka. What a wonderful hotel with first class amenities and top class professional staff. No more to be said except that this hotel was perfection

We stayed one night since we arrived late at night and had an early morning drive to the tea plantations. It is clean and comfortable and perfect if you want a hotel close to the airport. It is only about a 10 minute drive away.

Only one night here, but its overall quality is impressive enough to warrant a review. Though it is less than 10 minutes from the airport, the surrounding greenery and open space on the property makes one forget the busy-ness near by. Welcoming staff, clean spacious rooms, a relaxed yet efficient atmosphere, it was the perfect beginning to a holiday planned... More

This was just what we needed at the end of a relaxing week's holiday in Unawatuna. It was clean, comfortable and close to the airport. It did not break the spell of the end of a great holiday and it had us nicely rested for a long flight home. The check-in desk is beautifully designed. Staff were fast and friendly.... More

Due to schedule change we were provided with free overnight stay in this hotel, and nice to be back! Unfortunately rooms were not available in the new building, what was nit there yet during our previous stay. However, the friendliness of all staff is still there and despite odd times we arrived and departed, the smiles were indeed genuine!

After spending 12 days wild life spotting, this was a brilliant place to complete our holiday. We were upgraded to executive suites - most beautiful rooms. Fantastic shower, brilliant air conditioning, lovely soft, thick fluffy towels. The swimming pool was excellent, just the right temperature and large. The loungers very comfortable and lovely fluffy towels. The buffet restaurant for both... More

Stayed just the one night at the end of our three stay in Sri Lanka. The Gateway was a delightful surprise as normally airport hotels are soulless and have nothing attractive about them at all. It is the total opposite starting with the grounds as you enter, to the lobby area (with it's light show ceiling) and our room -... More

Arrived tired and hot. Pleasantly surprised at how good this hotel was. Good room, everything very clean, lovely buffet meal and breakfast, staff very friendly and helpful. A good start to our ten day touring holiday. Not at all like airport hotels in Britain.
