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... More

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.... More

Really disappointed after getting into the hotel but I was too late to look over for another place. The furnitures in the room is very very cheap and the chair was even broken. The old fashioned yellow light was too dim that it is even difficult to read anything and also will make you very uncomfortable. Train just beside the... More

Hotel had a good review so booked. Arrived very late still they were opened. Room was very clean. Staff is always smiling and very friendly. Hotel driver will always talk if you are alone. Will recommend people who are searching for cheap and good service. Had the best 3 days in the hotel. :)

Built right next to a train line every time (every45mins 6am-midnight) a train goes past the whole place shakes and the noise is horrendous. Tin roof also outside rooms so when it rains that sounds like drums above your head! Restaurant Staff were lovely but it was way overpriced! You can go to the famous mount Lavinia hotel pool and...

Located at Mt. Lavinia , which is about 45 km from Colombo International Airport, this hotel is not a bad deal in terms of value for money, except for the fact that there's a lot of load shading with delayed power back up! Decent staff & a quite environment at all times...
