The staff, as everyone else has said, are sweethearts and are working very hard, this is a safe and friendly place to stay, and we came back for a second time. The hotel needs a bit of maintenance and upgrading, it's showing its age, but beds are comfortable, with bedside lights, food is ok, bathrooms are good - our last... More

The photos did not do this property justice, as I was expecting a much less inviting place. The entire establishment, especially the room, was clean. Make sure to get your a/c turned on, as the humidity is unbearable. Breakfast was good, and some items can be made to order. The beach is very close. If you want to go into... More

I stayed three nights very comfortably at Tropic Inn. The reception was warm but efficient. They could not do more for you! Thanks especially to Lasitha. The hotel is close to a swimming beach, to the railway that fiollows the coast north-south (important as you can get about Colombo easily by train!) The rooms are not cramped, are very clean...

We found Tropic Inn to be an excellent choice for our first few days in Sri Lanka. The accommodation isn't five star but it's clean, well appointed and run by friendly and helpful staff who seem to love their jobs. The food is delicious and there is plenty of it. The hotel is just a few minutes walk from Mount... More
