The hotel was located close to the airport around 8kms. Taxi driver takes 1000rs from airport to the hotel. Colombo main city is about 30 kms from the hotel. Bus stop is on the main road and there are many no.240 buses for Colombo. I stayed for 9 days in the hotel. The nearest indian restaurant i.e. elite is in... More

I was arriving in the middle of the night and I needed a place to crash for a few hours before continuing my journey. This hotel is conveniently located near the airport and a great value for money. The room was a decent size with a working AC and quite clean. I would recommend it to anyone.

My family and I stayed at Hotel Blue Gum from December 23-24. Customer service is unbelievably poor. Food is very cold, they take ages to give the breakfast, have a I care a damn attitude about customers. Even to serve simple tea, it takes a long time and they don't give everything at one go. They will give 2 cups,... More

Staff is friendly and made a good impression. Rooms are clean and airconditioning sufficient. There is cable TV which introduced me to some entertaining Sri Lankan programmes. However, the area seems to have a mosquito problem as the hotel is located in a grassy area quite far from the city center. But if you have an early morning flight, this... More

The staff at this hotel went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. They organised our taxi into Colombo and our airport pickup went without a hitch. Our room was large and comfortable, although the pillows were a bit past their use-by date. Breakfast was delicious and healthy. The location of the hotel is just off the road... More

My sister and I stayed one night in the hotel because it was close to the airport before leaving Sri Lanka for London. For what we paid, I reckon we got value for money. The room was large and clean.
