Luxury hotel that was once an old colonial mansion and still retains the elegance & charm.
The staff are very friendly and helpful without being over intrusive.We arrived very tired in the early hours after our flight from Cyprus and we were soon settled in our room by the very helpful staff.
The food is excellent and the grounds are lovely and relaxing perfect for those with children.
An excellent hotel to start or end your Sri Lankan adventure and as a good base to explore Colombo.

Surrounded by lush gardens, converted from old colonial mansion, with exceptionally high standards of accommodation, food and service. Nice. Swimming pool. A great way to relax before and after a flight with the most comfortable beds!

I endorse all the positive comments about the hotel - it is top class luxury but at the same time very friendly and relaxed so a perfect combination. We stayed for our last night and it was a lovely way to end a fabulous holiday. We did not explore Colombo, but if we had, staying here for 2 or 3 nights would have been a great way to do it - a little out of the city, but it would have been worth the journey for the hotel. I am pleased we did not stay on our first night as it might have set the bar very high for the rest of the hotels!! Although next time, I would stay at both ends (we chose Jetwing on the beach for first night, which was nowhere near as smart but worked well for us).
The whole team have done a great job and they deserve all the praise - food and drink is great and there is a good, upmarket and quirky gift shop for a last-minute spending spree.

After a night flight from Singapore, it was comforting to arrive at such a relaxed and clean hotel within 20 mins. Another positive: the breakfast was delicious. We had three course breakfast which included fruit platter, freshly baked pastries and croissants and a main meal of your choice. Lovely lovely! I would definitely return if I travel to Sri Lanka again due to its close proximity to the airport.

After a long flight from London, it took only approx 25 minutes by car to reach this calming and lovely colonial style hotel we had booked for one night before touring the island. The whole atmostphere is soothing and relaxing. The staff are lovely and our room was lovely. Sitting out on the beautiful veranda drinking a delicious cocktail with our two teenage daughters who had just swam in the beautiful pool was wonderful. Dinner was delicious and after a good night's sleep in a very comfortable bed, we sadly had to leave this fabulous place.
