I had booked another hotel online at Negambo, through Sri Lankan Airlines / Sri Lankan Holidays for one night stay. They sent an email saying the hotel I booked was not available and offered Camelot Beach Hotel, which I accepted. We had taken 2 rooms. My flight was supposed to arrive early morning. I requested for an early check-in for... More

If starting your tour from Negumbo and you need a driver, be sure to get hotel staff to put you intouch with Antonio Fernados. The best driver in Sri Lanka (dream tours). Safe, great value for money, reliable, fun, knowledgable and shows off the best Sri Lanka has to offer. He booked our hotels ahead for us, after we discussed... More

I booked this hotel for my wife and I, and another couple, because we were in transit to Europe. Did not book breakfast because we planned to leave early (6.30 am) and eat at the airport. The hotel was OK for one night; room was clean and air conditioned. Shower worked, beds comfortable, safe in the room, small bar near... More

Room was basic but fine. Breakfast was adequate. Pools were fine. It is on the beach, which is good with nice surf and good warm waters. It is not even 4 star but for Sri Lanka is adequate and appropriate as it is close to the airport and it should be your place to be before or after your flight.... More

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
