“Good value hotel, nice rooms, disappointing breakfast”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

This hotel has clean big rooms, nice beds, good a/c and big bathroom. Cleaned to a high standard each day. Unfortunately is across a busy road to the beach, this ruins the garden as you are road side and is loud in the bedrooms. The hotel is also rather a long way around the bay which means you can not swim or surf in the beach just across from the hotel. The breakfast was poor, and they need more staff.

Room Tip: The first floor is definitely better than the ground floor but all will suffer from road noise

A very pleasant location on the Matara road, the waterfall from the roof infront of the open dining area looks very inviting and the huge banner proclaiming internation cusine a further draw.

The menu is quite frankly rather disapointing , same as any beach restaurant along the cost.

The outside dining area is well appointed and maitained very well. Tables are a bit cramped.

Staff are pleasant, helpful but maybe inexperienced.

It was a quite lunchtime being out of season. Sadly what they did not have on the menu was not apparent until half an hour or so after our order was placed.

The adjacent table of four Sri Lankan business men has Rice and Curry which looked fantastic and from the way they tucked in must of been good.

Our simple meal by comparisson was bland, freshly made for sure. Chicken curry looked sad but the sauce was actually very good.

We got what we ordered however a more experienced waiter would of told us we need not order extra rice as it came with rice. Not his fault but obviously a little more traing is needed.

All in all an average meal in pleasant surrounding, the waterfall is quite noisy but fun.

I would go back in the hope it is better when busier.

Hotel looks good and the pictures of the rooms suggest GHF Hotels have given them a face lift. Never saw them.

We stopped over at heritage and was very satisfied with the welcome, staff & rooms. Exceptional views of the ocean and room were immaculate. The only negative thing was they require more staff for food service.

Nice hotel, the rooms are clean and modern. It is a nice place to relax and just enjoy the time.
The beach is just infront the hotel, you need to cross the street to get there.

Food in the hotel is ok, they have the traditional Sri Lankan dishes and some western and Chinese options

Modern, clean, satellite tv, tea making facilities, complimentary water, toiletries included. Helpful,friendly manager when he was around. Good food, although limited menu, lovely dining area. Triple room included a fold away bed which was really only suitable for a child as it would fold up if sat on in the middle and unstable to sleep on. Staff were forgetful in replacing towels/toiletries/tea etc. and sometimes left our room unlocked. Good location.

I have been at The Heritage Hotel for a week now, and with frequent trips up and down the coastline, have amassed a reasonable set of understandings of this area. From the outset, the staff at The Heritage have gone out of their way to ensure my stay was warm and friendly, supportive discrete and professional. From cleaning staff to hotel manager, a welcoming smile into Sri Lankan culture is always there at a glance.
Many visitors here are tourists, often coming in small guided tours to afternoon tea in an authentic old colonial building in top condition. However, I measure the success of this place by the local guests who celebrate their own special occasions by staying here. Birthdays, important business meetings but the most memorable being the 'Coming of age ' celebration, over 100 beautifully dressed Sri Lankan guests introducing their special little girl into the next stage of life.
If you come to The Heritage as a tourist to get European food service and culture, you may enjoy a good effort to cater for your needs. I saw a stressed couple want european food immediately and kind of not get what this place is about. If you come to Sri Lanka to immerse yourself in a gentle culture of guest centred service, welcoming advice, sunshine and triumph over adversity ( it's only 9 years since tsunami hit here) then book yourself a few nights, see for yourself and then try to resist every urge not to come back. I will be returning with my family and friends.

Room Tip: Book early.
