At breakfast we were served by a lovely man by the name of Kasun (surname i think is Kimalka). He was so polite and friendly and very attentive. The pool is definitely is so lovely... More

We stayed here for one night at the beginning of our holiday and I was not expecting too much, thinking it is just a stopover close to the airport. I could not have been more wrong! Staff were very friendly, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the food was absolutely fabulous! The evening buffet was amazing value and there... More

The staff were first class.. Great welcome, nice welcome drinks. Our room was awesome. The pool was really good. We had a buffet dinner and again the staff were very helpful.. As close as it was to the airport you wouldn't really notice. Highly recommended

This hotel is close to the airport and is a great place to start or end a visit to Sri Lanka. The rooms are comfortable, grounds are spacious and swimming pool is big enough to actually have a swim in. The breakfast buffet is generous and offers a varied choice. But what makes this hotel outstanding is the service. From... More

What a great way to wrap up an amazing trip to Sri Lanka. We had finished our tour in Negombo at a less than pleasing hotel. This last move to The Gateway made everything right again. The green grounds, huge pool and calming vibe let us leave Sri Lanka with smiles on our faces and full bellies (the buffet was... More

Last month; on 20th July I had a pleasure staying at this hotel for start of my family holidays. We were bit tired of our travelling but the way we were greeted on reception with warm towels and mango & guava juice was refreshing.

The hotel was very nice and the room on the 6th floor has a very beautiful view. The staff is very friendly, especially the chef and manager at breakfast. They made us a special cake for our 2 yr anniversary as a surprise. They also got us all the traditional foods to try. My husband and I recommend this hotel!
