We found the hotel a clean , good sized rooms for a couple, Extremely clean & the staff very polite & helpful. The distance from the Airport makes it extremely favourable for visitors travelling in from the Airport. The restaurant served first class food, again clean & the restaurant staff very friendly & personable

Nice location next to airport if one wants to avoid the hustle bustle of Colombo. Very caring staff, great Breakfast buffet and great Srilankan cuisine selection. All in all, an amazing gateway to begin the Srilankan journey.

It was great experience to stay at The Gateway Hotel. The hotel property is nicely maintained and its lush green. The food was excellent, specifically India dishes prepared by Chef Dharmendra. While having food, it felt at home, away from home. Its worth to stay here.

Every time i visit this place i make sure i eat something new from the menu. My first experience was string hoppers, spicy much but very tasty! This time i had pork with rice and lentils. Made me homesick, was so good like my mum's cooking.
