This hotel is so far beyond the expiry date its almost a joke. A bad one that is. My sri lankan guide booked the hotel - ill never do that again. The hotel is placed on a marvelous place - the location (a small strip of land between the sea and a creek) could be truly luxury. Upon arrival the...

One of the worst hotels. The internet pictures promise a lot but the actual place lets it down. One girl at reception is like a flower. Just laughs at guests. It takes her ages to solve a simple issues.This girl is absolutely useless and needs front office training so bad. The hotel is so old. Thank God they will close...

Very disappointed with the management and hospitality of the hotel. Was in the hotel only for 5-6 hours and it was the worst stay in a hotel. Wouldn't even give a single star unless for the food served. Not the place if you're planning to relax and have a wonderful holiday.

There was nothing to like in the hotel as such. The beach and the water sports were the highlight of our stay. Otherwise 0 rating for the front office staff. No punctuality. 1. The reception staff was not very pleasant to talk to. They behaved very badly, not talking properly and were rude. Plus our check in took like 40...

Some people maybe put off by the fact that the railway track is between the garden and the beach but we found it is just what Sri Lanka is about. Room had everything you could wish for including his and hers vanity units and a lovely rain shower. The food and service in the restaurant was really good with afternoon...
