Excellent CX (customer experience) From Check-In to Check-Out. Staff are always willing to deliver a memorable and excellent service.Close to airport and the Free Trade Zone, so ideal for business travellers. Distant from city centre, therefore away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Reviewed 11 March 2017

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...

After lot of expectation choose to select buffet over Ala carte menu, but I realised shortly that decision was made wrong... Quality of food served was no where close to Taj Standards. Pasta was dry, fish was over cooked and very hard to chew. Chicken gravy was served cold. I wish I could have ordered Ala carte with one dish...

Very friendly & mannered staff right from the lobby all the way to the dining area. Always helpful. Good food & choice of beverages either if you go for the buffet or order your choice of food from the a la carte. Rooms are pretty good very clean and everything was functional from the key card to the table lamp....

Excellent service, great value and close location to the airport, which is handy if you have just arrived to Colombo or need a night before departure. The level of service is very good and room quality is very nice.

Greeted with such a warm welcoming at 3am in the morning - such a delight after being on a long haul flight. Breakfast staff were amazing - entertained my baby, introduced us to Sri Lankan omelettes and even sending up room service for my partner still asleep in bed. Upgraded to an executive suite which was spacious and very comfortable...

The Hotel needs upgrading and the tariff is too high at the moment. The staff was friendly but looks like these rooms haven't been upgraded since i was last there in the 1990's. As a location it's perfect for passengers in transit etc.but needs a total uplift
