We booked this hotel because we wanted something more luxury (ie. swimming pool) than our average stay after three weeks in Sri Lanka. In the end, this hotel was the most expensive, but the least satisfying of our stay. The hotel is shabby; it seems a long gone glory. It has no charm at all. Prices are way too high.... More

Stayed here for one night on my birthday. The restaurant is great and has a beautiful view. We enjoyed the pool and had long walks on the beach. The price we paid was high but other than that we had a relaxing time in this beautiful place.

I visited in September/October 2012. The 5 of us could all sleep in one family room and had air conditioning. We had a god experience and made use of the pool. We were close to the airport, as we were flying out the next day.

Stayed here purely for the beach view - hotel did not have too many guests. We looked at a few rooms before picking one that had a great view. Hotel feels old-ish, but comfortable enough. Staff were nice and respectful. The beds were comfortable and clean. Bathroom is quite small.

Horrible and pathetic hotel staff. We had paid 5k advance while booking it online and the bunch of jokers at the front desk insisted that we should pay the full money at the time of check-in! Then called some manager and said we need to pay during checkout! While location of this building is good, all other things- food, front... More

We stayed here for 6 days after a trip round the eats and north of the island. We had Sri Lankan friends to visit and we all had a great time. This hotel is probably about 3 stars and a bit tired but we were very comfortable. Most people only stayed one or two days when coming or going from... More

Right on the beach in Negombo and away from the vendors this is a nice place to stay if your standards re a little flexible. Rooms are dated but the price is right and staff is friendly. Breakfast is provided and it is right on the beach as well.
