Beautiful hotel surrounded by an amazing park. Comfortable and big rooms, staff extremely approachable and helpful. The food at the restaurant is nothing special but again the staff makes the difference: Gehan and Rohan made my lonely dinner amazing and made me feel special.

The hotel is situated very close to the international airport. I have always found it to be a very pleasant hotel when starting my holidays in Sri Lanka. My flights usually arrive late nights. The airport the pick up service and hotel reception have always been a stress reliever. Courteous and friendly service.
