We are only at day 3 of our 2 week stay and would like to say how pleased we are with the hotel and staff. We read some good and some not so good reviews so we're not quite sure what to expect. Well Sri Lanka is a simple place and the hotel is too. No grand oppulence but very... More

Our family stayed at Hikkaduwa for a weekend in February and overall the hotel was average or above average: the rooms were neat and clean; the pool was good; the location was fairly good; the buffet breakfast and dinner was as good as you expect a buffet to be; the price was reasonable by Sri Lankan standards; and it had...

I was initially put off by this hotel - the photos were not exactly what I had in mind. We were looking for a more chic, small boutique type of hotel but nothing that were available at the time. Citrus looked very much like it has seen better days. But it was CNY and the available options we had were... More

We spent 10 days at the Citrus Hotel in Sri Lanka. The hotel was clean and the staff helpful. We found the rooms to be minimalistic in that there was only 1 small set of drawers in the room and bed side lamps would have been helpful. Having said that the rooms were comfortable,spacious and well maintained. The bathroom again... More

Our tour operator booked this hotel and having read the reviews here we were very apprehensive about our two night stay. Travelling as three couples on a private tour. We warned out operator that we would inspect the rooms and insist on another hotel if not satisfactory. On arrival, we insisted on seeing all three rooms, and apart from one,... More

We stayed here for a week at the end of our Sri Lanka tour and initially, my impressions were ones of disappointment.
