Stayed here for one night at the end of my stay in Sri Lanka. I'd say it is an average hotel and although my room was a bit dated it was spacious and spotlessly clean. The food was of a good standard as was the service and the hotel pool and bar were also very good. The only downside was...

We stayed here just for few hours before our departure to the airport. The rooms were neat, good sized and decent. We used the outdoor pool and it was ok and well maintained. Good location of the hotel with easy access to beach and local shops and restaurants.

The pool was not very well maintained and the breakfast buffet had very limited options. But the hotel staff were friendly and cooperative. The rooms were neat and tidy. It is quite far from the airport.

We stayed in this hotel as soon as we reached Srilanka for a day. It is a very nice hotel with big and spacious rooms. In the heart of the city and yet very peaceful. A family of 4 can easily stay in the rooms. Bathrooms are great as well. Highly recommend this place for a short stay in Colombo...

I wanted a hotel with good internet and gym, both failed. Internet speed and connection was horrible, unable to complete a task. The gym picture on the website is misleading, only one treadmill, which doesn't work and I was told that the circuit board needs to be replaced. The stationary bicycle needs oiling, the left pedal makes a screeching noise...

I stayed in this hotel for a night. I went with my wife there on a package trip. This place is not so great and not a bad one either. A decent one and a well maintained.
