We stayed on our first and last night in Sri Lanka and for somewhere so close to the airport it was ideal. Generally the food quality was very good, as long as you chose right. We stayed the first night in room 1 which was OK but our last night was in room 19, which was much better, although either room was spacious with a cavernous bathroom. Unfortunately our last night was independence day and the hotel was unable to serve alchohol, which was very dissapointing, prior warning would have been useful especially when you are looking forward to a cold beer after a long journey.

We stayed here for one night before flying out of Colombo, and wished we had an extra day to enjoy the peace and tranquility. Although only 15 mins from the airport, it is not under the flight path, and we found our whole stay very restful. The whole atmosphere is very quiet and calming. The service is excellent - when told that we had an early departure, the staff started breakfast half and hour earlier for our benefit. The rooms are very comfortable, and the food was very good too - we hope to be back!

We spent one night here before flying out of Colombo, using the hotel for what it is – an airport hotel. It is a nice place. Nice room with a great bathroom – although no hot water whatsoever in the morning which resulted in me having a cold shower and husband not having one at all so that’s not good value for money. There is a small outside space off the room, but plenty of space within the hotel to sit around.

Food was good, although nothing special compared with other food we ate in Sri Lanka. Having said that, I did have a delicious breakfast of bacon and maple syrup crepes.

I enjoyed the relaxed informal atmosphere with music and the more relaxed approach of the staff and I found it quite a refreshing way to end our trip.

We arrived at 3 in the afternoon and didn’t leave until 11 the following morning, so I think with hindsight I would have preferred to have been in Colombo as we didn’t go there at all during our trip.

However, if you want a perfectly acceptable, relaxed and stylish place to stay before flying then you could do worse than a night here.

I feel a bit bad about the average rating, but with the lack of hot water and the fact that I am submitting several reviews at once on Sri Lanka, the rating is comparative - and TA doesn't have a "good" option, which is what this would otherwise be.

As per the previous reviews, this is a lovely little "boutique" hotel which is very convenient for the airport, about 20 mins or so drive away.
We stayed one night (like most guests here we suspect) in a "garden suite" which was modern and very pleasant, with tea/coffee making facilities and a small rear terrace area, although no room fridge which would have come in useful. The bathroom was huge. The aircon worked well and was quiet.
The hotel grounds are compact but well-maintained, with a large lawn area for sunbathing. The pool area is off to one side, surrounded by trees, which makes it shadier but has the advantage that most kiddies went there to play, so leaving the rest of the hotel relatively peaceful. There was a spa which looked nice although we didnt try it, and complimentary wi-fi.
We ate both lunch and the evening meal at the hotel, and the food was very good and reasonably-priced for the quality. The dining area is a lovely "open walled" space. We didnt have any problem with mosquitos.
The hotel begins serving breakfast from 6.30am which is earlier than usual, and very convenient if you have an early flight to catch.
Despite being so near the airport, we hardly heard any aircraft noise at all.
Overall, the hotel is far and away the best place to stay for the night before or after you need to use the airport. There wouldnt be much point staying longer than a night or so, unless you were visiting Colombo itself, as there is very little to do in the vicinity so you are essentially confined to the hotel itself for the duration of your stay.

In an unlikely setting, 6km approximately from the airport and in what is an otherwise unattractive area. Set in its own grounds with abundant wildlife, (sadly including the mossies) the hotel provides a fantastic first or last night before or after a flight. The room we used was beautiful and attention to detail was seen everywhere throughout the hotel. The food and service were faultless.
