This is a good option for those looking for a hotel near to the airport. Rooms are very spacious, there is a nice pool in the hotel. Staff are very friendly and breakfast is good (large portions). Evening meals can be obtained from a local restaurant and delivered to the hotel. The only small issue we had was that the... More

It is a great place to start or end (or both) your Sri Lanka holiday due to the closeness to the airport. The place has a nice ambience, very friendly and attentive staff, and a good breakfast. Spacious and comfortable room.

We stayed in the spacious blue room upstairs over looking the pool. The staff were very warm, helpful and attentive. The pool was lovely to swim in (no chlorine). Fruit and toast and eggs each morning and smiling staff to serve you. Tortoises roam around the garden and can come to you to be fed. Dickmans is very secure and... More

We stayed here on our final night of our tour of Sri Landa and OMG WHAT A PLACE!!!! This is not a gay hotel, it's an all welcome policy without children, which makes for a very relaxing and calm atmosphere. (The pool is just too dangerous for children and also the stairways are far from suitable for children) Very retro... More

We chose this hotel partly because of the good reviews of other travellers. We can confirm that for us it provided very good value for money in terms of both comfort and amenities, with excellent staff service. The hotel is not in the same league, understandably, as hotels costing say twice as much, but nor would you expect this. Negombo... More

We stayed here three nights after arrival and two nights before leaving Sri Lanka. Resort is a big name, with 6 or 7 rooms it is more a well priced boutique hotel. (but we know a place with 20 rooms in Negombo thats named "Village"). Central pool, colourfull rooms around it and good breakfast and snacks. Enough good restaurants within... More

Only had a few days in Sri Lanka and decided to spoil myself a little with staying here before my flight out. Considering the combined things I judge accommodation on, this is one of the best places I've ever stayed... anywhere. The building, design and decor were 1st class. My room and en suite were better than anything I've had... More

What a wonderful hotel this is! I stayed with my husband for a couple of nights at the end of our holiday in Sri Lanka and we both loved it. The rooms are huge and well equipped. The minibar drinks are honestly priced and they provide some free laundry. The boys working there are absolutely wonderful, happy and helpful. The... More

this is rather an oasis... rooms are large and well supplied, the design of the hotel is interesting and best of all the staff are very accommodating and pleasant... obviously geared for same sex orientated persons and very sensibly excludes children it is a great place to relax and chill.... nothing appears too much trouble for the staff and the...
