This is the ideal hotel to start or end your Srilanka journey. Very close to airport. Excellent buffet restaurant. Superb staff. Manager Mr Abhishek Mukherjee, Chef Dharminder and Hopper Aunty Ms Grace deserve special mention.

Of the 8 hotels we stayed at during our 3 week trip we have only gave two of them 5 stars and this one and probably he most surprising. We only really booked here because we had an early morning flight and didn't want a long trip to the airport, however it turned out to be a very pleasant surprise...

This hotel is, more than anything else, worth staying in due to the very friendly and helpful staff and wonderful personal service, throughout. Having stayed many times I can not fault the dedication of the staff towards the guests. Nalin and Rohan, in particular, in the restaurant / bar can not do enough to help when dining. Thank you.

We spent one night at the Gateway Hotel before our flight home. The hotel is very close to the airport (less than 10 min away).

The hotel is very modern and the rooms...
