The reception staffs are unfriendly & least helpful. Internet in the room is absurd. Room toilet has no ventilation. Choose this hotel only if you're a beach person otherwise is a strict no go. There are no lift facility & it is a walk up the stairs. Morning breakfast is gòod though.

Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that you did enjoy the food at Camelot. In regards to the ventilation of our bathrooms, all our rooms have mechanical ventilation systems installed. I apologise if this was not sufficient. Internet is only available in all our public areas and rooms have not been fitted with an internet connection... More

The rooms were reasonably comfortable . While we found the rooms and ambience acceptable, we were disappointed with the quality and range of food at the buffets . The beach is easily accessible and the pool area very nice .

We find this hotel quite agreeable, especially since the new wing and restaurant are finished. Staff doing its best to serve and they seem mostly to understand english. Good service. We stayed in room 137 in a new wing and although the free wifi was told only to work at the pool or in the lobby we could connect easily... More

Clean and neat room, friendly staff, beach facing pool and bar for a sunset drink and amazing food. Hotel is under renovation and things are looking like this hotel is going to be amazing after the make over. Good value for money.

the hotel location is excellent. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Special thanks to the recreation manager mr. Upali if I'm not mistaken and the breakfast sous chef at the buffet. They make our stay with a smile. The very bad thing was the light interruption. We check in with our baby and she cry a lot due to... More

On the plus side, location is good, rooms are comfortable and clean and beachside loungers and seats are nice for a sunset drink or a couple of hours of lounging in the sun. On the negative side, the hotel is currently under renovation, so it's very noisy. Breakfast restaurant is very ugly and buffet very disappointing. Reception staff were not... More

The 10,000 yen or less hotel in Negombo is only a hotel of terrible evaluation -- having been bit by ticks and hot water does not come out -- which obtains and carries out and is completely different from the photograph of a homepage. Under such circumstances, the Quest for Camelot beach hotel was Japanese yen conversion of 9000 yen,... More

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
