Welcombe hotel is located just above the beautiful harbour from where you can see the entrance to the harbour & the light house. Clean place with very attentive staff.We were able to discuss our own meal plan & the staff was very flexible over that. Rooms have the same view of the harbour. The bath tubs needs some athletic skills... More

We'd booked online before travelling and on arrival were immediately impressed by the welcome we received at the Welcombe Hotel. We were shown to our Deluxe room which was beautiful and more of a suite than just a bedroom. The views over the bay are stunning and the area is very quiet and peaceful. During our 3 day stay we...

Took the opportunity to book a triple superior room on a low season offer. (The double on the offer had gone but the price was the same). The room was huge and had an equally big balcony. Our bed was as large as any I have seen, the extra bed was to one side and did not take up much... More

Enjoyed our stay. Value for money. Manager was very helpful and arranged a room at 7am some sleep. The staff always obliging from front desk to the restaurant. Amal was great. Restaurant food needs attention.We are staying here again in 2014.

In all honesty, there isn't much of a reason to stay in Trincomalee itself. You're better off going north or south to one of the neighbouring beaches. The Welcombe itself is about 2km away from town, so if you want to see the fort or walk around you'll need to get a tuktuk in. The hotel itself is a bit... More

Stayed here the middle of september - was thinking of being there a few nights, but checked out after just one as it wasn't worth the money, even at the reduced rate I was offered over the phone. Had high hopes as the building itself is attractive and has an interesting design, the pool is big and clean, there's flowers... More

I is a lovely place to relax with beautiful scenarios of the Trincomalee bay. Spent two nights. One guy at catering staff wasn't very helpful and I heard that others call him as 'Thadiya' who was muttering and moaning when we asked for omelets. Mr. Jayawardana was very humble but I think that's too much. You've to be vigilant when... More
