A lovely little hotel. We stayed here for our first night in Sri Lanka, and would have loved to stay more. After a long flight a quick shower and a dip in the little swimming pool was wonderful. The bar was great (Lion Beer in an ice cold glass) and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The Hotel is... More

We decided to try this hotel for our short EID breaks.I wasn't feeling that great so we spent almost half of the time in the hotel and it left a great impression on us. The staff were truly accommodating and helpful and I must say that was something we've never seen before (special mention to ARUN who patiently assisted us... More

Great little place. Really enjoyed our lunch here. They have a limited menu which is quite affordable and for the price the choices are very nice. There's a lovely pool for swimming though the water doesn't taste very pleasant in case you accidentally happen to taste it. One other thing, the water pressure is high so watch out when washing...

We come here to Sri Lanka every year and I think it is the best so far. Private, homely, don't feel like you are being watched (a common problem in most hotels here with the number of staff). Given it 5/5 but that doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement. Other than the privacy the food is of top quality... More

I had contacted the hotel, before we left for our holiday, to arrange for a pick up from Colombo airport. When we arrived at the airport a driver and the hotel manager (Nalin) were there to meet us.

It's is a hotel with nice location, good facilities and decent amenities. But the two things which give you problems is the lack of options in food and also lacklustre attitude of staff who seems to be last interested in their work
