Welcoming hotel close to Colombo, next to the beach. Friendly and attentive staff and good restaurant. Hotel rooms are basic, but comfortable with air conditioning, TV, en-suite bathroom and tea-making facilities. Perhaps in need of redecoration, but acceptable given the price. Hotel makes extra effort to make the stay memorable, with events such as live music, dancing and BBQ by... More

Only stayed one night. Overall experience was fair in terms of the hotel settings and the staff. The hotel has a fairly nice pool and access to the beach. There's also a volleyball field on the beach. There is a door in our room that is shared to the next room, but it's locked of course. However we could clearly... More

I stayed here for a night after arriving into Colombo late one evening. It's a low end hotel, catering to the budget package holiday crowd & backpackers. The beach out front is really nice. Couple issues worth mentioning: - Overall cleanliness could be improved, especially the floor of the room. I don't think they wash it at all. - The... More

At the start of our trip around Sri Lanka, this was the first hotel we visited. It is a fairly large hotel but still the staff had attention for everyone. The beach is not the nicest we have seen but the pool area makes up for that. The food served is good, also the breakfast and dinner buffet were good... More

My husband and I stayed at the Camelot and just loved the service, cleanliness of the rooms, and the willingness of the staff to meet our every need. We were going to travel to other hotels but decided to spend a week at Camelot due to their terrific service. Also, there is a Health Center where you can get inexpensive... More

It was a great hotel to start our Sri Lanka round trip in. It is close to the airport . The hotel is also located right at the beach. The rooms were spacious and clean. We also had a balcony with ocean view. The buffet was nice, lots of choice. Always friendly staff there. Especially the assistant F&B manager, Sunil... More

I booked this hotel as I was going with family and thought it would be a safe bet as its a large hotel on the beach. Apart from having a nice view the rooms were really basic, not very clean and everything (including the pool, bar area and buffet area) looked as through they were last updated in the 70's... More

We spent our last 2 nights here and we found the rooms clean and the breakfast nice, that's as far as it went. I went for an early morning walk on the beach were I was confronted by a man who was exposing himself, he was using vulgar language and He followed me. I ran to the motel and advises... More

I have so many issues with my 2 night stay at this hotel. Firstly when checking out they demanded I pay for the room which I had already paid. They got insistant which is understandable if i had but even if i had it is unacceptable for a member of staff to threaten me. Only we I said to call... More
