Thank you to Soren and Wasantha, who made me feel welcome. This is more of a motel, not a hotel, suited for those being treated at nearby hospitals or budget travellers, not suited for tourists on holiday. The main hotel building has for the last year or so been leased out, and thus the pool and cafe are no longer availalbe for guest use. Rooms are provided for in a nearby building, and thus the photos on tripadvisor are misleading. The owner is misleading booking guests by not updating the hotels status on tripadvisor, however both the night receptionist Soren and the day manager Wasantha are honest guys and helpful. It did get noisy in the morings, and the location is not well known, so use Google Maps. My advice is look elsewhere , unless you are after a motel in this specific location, near to the hopsitals

Recently visited Sri Lanka for ny business tour and stayed in this hotel. Room and staff is good in terms of cleanliness and behaviour but in room facilities are not good as sometimes some light goes bad or fan refuses to start. After informing on reception, the issue got sorted out but again same issue arises next day. Had stayed in the same hotel two years back at that time room condition was not good but atleast all electronic equipments were working, but this time it happened in other way. So was only happy to sleep in night but cannot stay in room for whole day. Also, hotel has swimming pool now which definitely gave me good experience as I don't want stay in room most of the times.

I am okay for one day but I could find the room for same price at EUROLANKA. Better service. These are nice place to stay but drive around that areas may be you will find the better hotel. Try one day and see other places.
