We booked this hotel because it looked wonderful and was within close proximity to Colombo international Airport. Desk staff were friendly, but became aware that although the decor was superb, the walls were dirty and construction was going on. Shown around by friendly manager and assured that the banging and crashing would stop by 6pm. I enquired about the disco sound being heard from the basement during the night. Assured that this would not disturb us. A very unsightly view of rubbish in the garden outside our windows did not appeal.
Having given up on rest during the afternoon (tired after the long journey from Kandy and being up late for the Kandy Perehera), we at least expected sleep by 10pm (after an appalling basic dinner in the dining room with very few choices) we thought that Negombo was having its own Perehera parade....After an hour and a half of loud drumming in the bedroom I realised it was the disco . I requested four times for the music to be turned down to no avail and I was getting pretty mad. Moving rooms at 1am didnt help. The inessant noise when on until well after 3am
This hotel has the potential to be gorgeous - but with a disco interferring with guests sleeping I dont see the benefit of having spent so much on the decor. Feel very ripped off with this one.
