Most people come here when they arrive as it is close to the airport. We found a large room with noisy aircon, firm but acceptable beds and a comfortable balcony. The bathroom was decrepit and the shower barely worked. The pool was lukewarm cloudy and smelled slightly of rotten eggs. Bizarrely there was a petrol tanker parked in the forecourt.... More

First was terrible : very old rooms, cigarettes smell and dirty pool. And we realized the hotel was nearby a smelly sewage area. We were more lucky the... More

This was great for a one night stay on arrival in Sri Lanka. It is very close to the airport so a good option if you need to rest before your onward journey. The rooms are spacious with a/c, fridge and safe. The dinner and breakfast buffets offered a good variety and service was good. The beach is lovely although... More

There's a lovely view to the sea, and well worth standing by the pool at dawn to watch the sailing boats come in and in the evening to see the sun setting. Easy reach of the airport, breakfast ok, staff polite. It's an easy walk to local shops and places to eat. But the hotel has seen better days, the... More

This is one of the hotels provided by Sri Lankan airlines to their transit/stopover passengers. It is a 15 minute ride from the airport. I reached there around 11:30 pm and it was as dark as it can get. I was given a room with 3 single beds. The rooms is very average to an extent that you will feel... More

A nice beach hotel which is quite near to the Bandaranaike International Airport and if you are either in transit through Sri Lanka with more than half a day to spend or arrived at odd hours, this hotel is a good option to stay put. Even otherwise you can spend a couple of days in this quite hotel to just... More

Clean spacious rooms, wi-fi, pool & bar and beach area. Food was good but some what limited in variety - however, in fairness to the hotel we had visited off-season. The hotel is a brief walk from local ATMs/shops/bars & restaurants. The staff were always friendly & helpful. Ideal hotel for brief stay overs, I don't think I could stand... More
