I stayed here for the night with my boyfriend in Jan for the first night in Sri Lanka. The room was really comfortable, shower great, tea & coffee making facility. The staff were very helpful and breakfast was very tasty.

Service is quite good. Room is small and very basic. Shower quality is terrible. The street outside is a laneway and dark at night but seems reasonably safe. Be prepared to wait outside for some time for the staff to open the door to allow you to enter the hotel foyer.

Myself and my friend stayed here for a night and found it very comfortable and central. Its very near a modern shopping centre and lake, and the staff were lovely. I think it's good value and a handy stopover

I stayed three nights at this place as I was in town for a conference and needed a place nearby. I was staying in the single room. It was a modern room which was clean and tidy. The staff was really friendly and was always willing to help. The road is not a busy one so there is no noise at all and the sleep quality was really good. I had no meals from the place but I saw there are dining options there as well. The property doesn't have parking facilities and I had to keep the car parked in the road in front of the place. Overall I can recommend the place to anyone who wish for a calm peaceful stay close to the city center.

This is a really nice guesthouse in a good quiet location to tour Colombo and only £50 per night. The docor was modern, rooms comfy with a/c and very helpful staff. Breakfast was ok, but could have done with some variation. The bathroom although functional, but needs some refurbishment as it's looking tired.
