This place was a very pleasant surprise, for the price etc. It was clean, pleasant and conveniently situated at 15 minutes' drive from the airport. The staff is very helpful, and the pool a real bonus. One cannot cook in the apartments, as the kitchens are not kitted out.

Very quiet location, which is not so usual in Sri Lanka. Located at an unpaved road, but 15 min by car only from the airport Bandaranaike (if no traffic congestion). Transfer to the airport was little less than 2000 rupies. I had the appartment with 3 rooms, equipment simple, bathroom very simple. Air condition in sleeping room worked well (essential in Sri Lanka). Has even a quite big swimming pool. Cheap with 35 Euro/night (without breakfast).
Good for short near airport stay, not for holidays.

We spent our last night in Sri Lanka at Green View Hotel, since it was one of the closest to the airpost and still affordable. The room was actually a very clean apartment with kitchen facilities (unused by us). The A/C was working fine, as well as the hot water. The service was friendly and helpful, the food in the restaurant very good.
Transport to the airport was organized at reasonable price, with choice of tuktuk or taxi (other hotels book the more expensive taxi without even offering a cheaper tuktuk).
The location is in the tropical forest, it was very quiet, the surrounding was arranged with great love for details.

Stayed here for only one night and that was enough.

Sheets were dirty but when asked for new, they weren't that clean either.

Bed was comfy.

Staff were helpful and friendly.

Make sure when catching a taxi to airport, u agree on a price before u leave. It cost us 1500 rps. Think that was a lot for a 5minute drive.

This hotel is a good value for the money. Our room, on the second floor, seemed to have been recently renovated. There was AC in the bedroom and a fan in the dining/living room area. There was a kitchen, but it seemed fairly useless since there is no oven, stove, or fridge (only a sink). There was a balcony. In the bathroom, there was nothing separating the shower from the rest of the room, so taking a shower meant getting the entire bathroom soaking wet. The pool was adequate.

Lunch was cheap and the portions huge. Breakfast was not included but they did provide one or two free bottles of water in our room.

The gentleman who carried our bags for us was very helpful and extremely quiet. I don’t think I heard him talk to anyone at all. The two managers seemed a bit loud and pushy, but this didn’t interfere with our stay. At some point we needed to pay for our lunch, but couldn't produce bills small enough for the manager to make change. He recalled having given us some small change the day before, and, rudely, in my opinion, asked us where that money had gone. We explained that we’d given it as a tip to the man who had been helping with our bags. The manager then instructed the man to go get that money so he could make change. (I hope that’s all he was doing, and that he didn’t take the tip from him, since we intentionally gave it directly to him.)

One note: it’s not an easy place to find without knowing exactly where you're going, which, depending on your transportation arrangements, can be problematic. The manager had offered via email to arrange transport for us from the airport, which we agreed to, but upon arrival we could not find the driver anywhere. We were assisted first by a police officer and then a travel agent in the airport, who very helpfully rang the hotel at least half a dozen times to see if anyone was coming for us. No answer. It was after 1:00 am, but the hotel had been made aware of our late arrival time, so the silence was inexplicable. The travel agent told us that this was the norm with this hotel; they make a habit of not being open when people are planning to arrive, and then leaving them high and dry by not even having the gate open and not answering the phone or doorbell. We got lucky and saw the sign with our name just as we were about to leave with another taxi driver. When we finally made it to the hotel, the manager seemed to have just returned himself. So it worked out ok for us, but it could easily have turned out badly, and the hassle could have been avoided.

We had a 12 hour break in our journey in Colombo. This hotel is 10 minutes by trishaw. It is in a peaceful and pretty location and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The aircon was just perfect and we had a decent sleep and nice meal before heading off to continue our journey. They had a nice swimming pool but unfortunatly didn't take my costume. We had a thunderstorm with a brief power cut and the staff immediatly arrived with candles to light our room. Will happily return to them again. The trishaw rider knew exactly where the hotel was and the hotel took us back to the airport...perfect

Room Tip: Although there is a kitchen, there are no appliances. I always take a travel kettle and tea makings...
