I stayed two nights at Monty Hotel, with friends. The hotel is conveniently located in close proximity to the Ampara town Everyone in our group was satisfied with the service, facilities and food provided by the hotel. I am surprised at the negative reviews. I had been to this hotel four years ago, and since then I notice a vast... More

I didn't get a great reaction to the fact that I was staying at Monty's, but I think it's really quite nice. Admittedly, the facade as you drive up does belie slightly more average interior, but it's a nice hotel in a very quiet area. The staff is friendly and helpful. There was no welcome drink of the usual fruity... More

Visit the website and this hotel looks fine. Visit the hotel and no way is this a luxury hotel. And from the list of facilities it is clearly not basic. What it is, is dirty, dark and grim. The website is fiction rather than fact, and misleading one example being the indication the rooms have baths, they don’t it is... More

I stayed here recently on a business trip. I didn't have high expectations and Monty Hotel didn't exceed them. The room was ok, if you ignore the flaking paint, damp mildew on walls, curtain hanging off...the pictures on TA or the hotel website look much better than reality. On a positive note, the food in the restaurant was fine and... More

The hotel is having a very good potential to grow up. The staff is very good and think about the guest. The rooms a offered on "room only basis" which is good. We have the option to go out and eat or to order and have it within the cafeteria. The food is good and some what hot....Please improve. The... More

Passing through on my way back from East coast beaches. Only went to Ampara because of bus connections. Staff friendly enough but hotel drab and uninspiring. Felt that the charge was pretty high in comparison to other places in Sri Lanka. It seems like there are limited options though. Cleanliness was not great and rooms dreary.

The Monty Hotel can be named as the best place if you are looking accommodation near Ampara Town. Rates are also quite reasonable and have quite well equipped rooms. Specially noticed that the lighting inside the rooms are not enough. Also the food is average. You can enjoy all facilities like Wifi, AC, Hot water and TV. Pretty good place... More

First impressions are great. A lofty open reception area, modern, lush plantings and deep comfortable sofas. Unhelpful staff spoilt the effect. The only useful member of staff was the manager, who tried to do everything himself, whereas he would have been better employed training his staff. Room design bizarre with the bathroom put at the window end, removing any views.... More

No doubt this is the best hotel in Ampara. There are several room categories - luxury, standard and normal. Standard was just fine. The beds, linen and towels were good - to me this was most important. The toilet was basic but clean - no hot water. There was a small fridge in the room, Air Con and TV. The... More
