This place needs improvement. Wi-Fi didn’t work from the hotel rooms. The rooms are grotty and rundown. When I tried to use the shower the whole thing fell apart. On the plus side, it is a nice location right by the sea front and they have a small pool. Breakfast was pretty average. Price is fairly good, I’d probably only...

I enjoyed our last day in Colombo here. There were some problems in the room which was pool side. But they resolved if asap. The food was great. The pork chops and fried Pork were finger licking good. It has a swimming pool but it was not much clean though. The beach was good.

Everything was great about the hotel except for the breakfast, which was sadly out of options and the AC, which wasn't functioning properly. View from the top floor is great, clean rooms.If not for the above mentioned issues, would've certainly rated 5 stars

I read mixed reviews about this place, but the majority were very good! I found it to be excellent! At 30 USD it was clean...room 06 has a sea view...the downside is that it's right next to the Colombo Galle railway track. Trains stop running about 10.30pm so they don't disturb you through the night. It's a great pool and...

Small but a really friendly and good hotel. It was a bit noisy during the night but other than that it was fine. Needs improvement as the TV didn't work but A/C and rooms were clean. We stayed during December, didn't have any problems in extending the stay, very helpful staff! Furniture was also okay! hope to visit again!

We stayed here for a week in May. The resort itself is very pleasant compared to others in the area and even has a pool and wifi. We stayed in the budget rooms which were great value for money and overlooked the pool. The staff were by far the best part about the stay, who were extremely accommodating and kind....
