We were accommodated in the new wing. The room was fabulous with modern fixtures and amenities. The rain shower was a nice touch. The restaurant is a bit... More

We spent one night at this hotel to recover from our overnight flight from the UK. It is ideally situated being only 10 minutes from Colombo International Airport. Our room, in the new block, was spacious and well appointed which was entered by a covered walkway from the lobby and bar area. All the staff were delightful and very welcoming.... More

We had booked this hotel as our first stop on a longer tour of Sri Lanka, we wanted somewhere to regroup and refresh ourselves. This hotel was perfect. The staff are absolutely wonderful,... More

Some of the flights in and out of Colombo are scheduled a wired hours and many travelers will be faced with the 'half-night' question - shall I pay the room night or lounge at the airport.
