I happen to stay here as had unexpected flight cancellations. Beautiful inside and out.. Superb friendly staff. Spacious and clean room with very comfortable bed. Good size shower and toilet. With quality toiletries. Exceptional breakfast. Uber transport would be much cheaper than hotel's transport itself. All in all exceptional airport hotel.

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...

A good transit hotel that requires some form of recreation to enable guests to stay longer than just transit stay. Could do with some indoor facilities like Table Tennis etc. Some facelift to the rooms in the old wing where we stayed is required,

My wife and I stayed here for two nights prior to a very early morning flight. We wanted somewhere to really relax after touring southern India and Sri Lanka for six weeks and prepare ourselves for the long journey home to Canada. We could not have chosen better. From the time of registration to check out we were treated superbly....

The music for the party was too loud and it continued till nearly midnight. No apology was given from the hotel. Food was good and reasonable price. Room was good also and clean. Free Wifi but it was a bit slow.

The hotel has one of the best services I had ever experienced, clean, very organized and the restaurant is a plus; food is just wonderful there. The team is extremely kind and professional; my congratulations to Chef Nishanta and Mr Gehan on fantastic quality they provide at their restaurant.
