As a frequent guest for business purposes, I can recommend this hotel. Personal touch but highly professional approach when it comes to service, accomodations and food. Excellent for starting and ending your trip in Sri Lanka; close to the airport.

We stayed here just for one night as we had to be at the airport very early the following morning. The hotel is big and modern and kept nicely clean. The rooms again were nice and we had some pretty decent room service however it is hugely let down by the bathrooms. They are literally disgusting and the shower head...

We stayed at the Gateway after landing in Colombo at around 9pm. This is a great airport hotel. Pickup was smooth, a gentleman was waiting for us at arrivals and within minutes we were onboard an air conditioned bus. The drive to the hotel took approximately 10 minutes. The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming, and the grounds are lovely,...

Arrived at Gateway Hotel, after a flight from Heathrow, on Tuesday 21st March. Good hotel, comfortable room, tasty food, helpful staff. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to return to UK on Wednesday 22nd March. Not the 2 week holiday that I had planned but unavoidable. I watched the rest of the group leave at 8.30am and stayed behind...
