Stayed here with another couple at the start and end of a Sri Lanka tour and was the weakest hotel by a mile. Cons-dated run down rooms. Beach pretty awful. Pros-staff lovely. Beer cold. Location good. Recommend tuktuk tour of the fish market from outside hotel. An experience.

Me and my husband recently spent 11 nights here and we can't fault it. Where to start, first of all the staff are the most helpful and friendliest people we have ever met.

We stayed here for the last night of our holiday to be close enough to the airport. First impressions upon arrival was not great as the hotel looks old and dated from the outside. Staff are reasonably friendly. Rooms are in need of refurbishment and appear to be quite worn out and tired. Bathroom was not that pleasant. I think... More

We asked to be moved from our first room as the door to the balcony did not lock and almost all the furniture was damaged. Our second room was a little better but... More
