We went for a office get together on 4th of June-16 Offered a wonderful banquet hall with great service followed by a nice lunch buffet. Cleanliness and the service they provided for us awesome. Special thanks to hotel's sales executive Ashwika Nadarajah, she organised everything as per your request.

The staff at this hotel will go out of their way to help. They are friendly and always smiling. This includes the chef who came out of the kitchen to check if we liked our meals. And the waiters with a sense of humour.

Very friendly and modern facilities. Special thanks to Rasad, the Restaurant supervisor for taking a special interest and seeing to my vegetarian cuisine needs. Thank you Rasad, the food was absolutely delicious and especially the tofu and garlic. Gateway Hotel is an ideal "gateway" for your landing or take off spot from Sri Lanka.

Hotel is newly renovated. Close to the airport, only 15-20 min drive on tuk tuk to Negombo beach. Tuk tuk drivers always ready by the hotel to give you a ride anywhere. Convenient store next door. Clean rooms and hotel facilities. Hotel is popular for cabin crew layovers.

We were here for two nights as part of a tour group. Our tour notes said it was "approx 45 minutes from the airport", whereas 10 minutes would be more accurate, The notes said the hotel is "close to Negombo", which it isn't - it's several kms, and "you can hire a bike to explore the town or simply relax...

Great hotel close to airport so convenient for late evening arrivals. Nice green property with very friendly and helpful staff. Don't have a great lobby if you need to spend few extra hours -- as I had to, to catch a late evening flight but hotel compensated with free wifi connection.

Nice stay for the business trip. Hotel is close to airport and also close to industry area. The hotel staff is friendly and service is also nice. You can enjoy the night time with friends in the bar and they can provide quite local food or international food.
