This is quite a mixed hotel, we stayed three nights. I'd like to give it 3.5 rather then 4 as there are good points to the hotel, our room / the terrace, the service. Having read how tired the hotel looked, we were surprised on arrival, the entrance and lobby looked great, we were escorted to our room and we... More

We had wanted to stay here for several years, however it was full on the dates we had previously requested. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by the door team and reception who looked amazing and were really helpful. The rooms were standard which is what we expected, however, we found the restaurant menu uninviting and the poolside bars... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. This is a great hotel, with loads of character. The rooms are not ultra modern, but rather fit in with the colonial feel. The bar is lovely, complete with old photos and a live pianist, and the food was excellent. The private beach was also great, and makes a big different in a city the... More

The old Governors residence converted into a superb hotel. We arrived late on the evening, but were still able to get an excellent meal from room service. The staff were keen to help and the doorman dressed in the Old Colonial Uniform provided a very warm welcome. He was so proud of his uniform.

When CCTV footage was retrieved, they saw a well dressed local man following in into the hotel and the restaurant and when i... More

Stayed here in June 2014 for 2 nights. Lovely beach front location with a fabulous view from the swimming pool and terrace. Beautiful private beach, sea is very rough and not suitable for swimming. Room was spacious and clean, request a sea view room. Buffet style food, good Sri Lankan food with lots of choice and some Western food available.... More
