This hotel is close to the airport and is a great place to start or end a visit to Sri Lanka. The rooms are comfortable, grounds are spacious and swimming pool is big enough to actually have a swim in. The breakfast buffet is generous and offers a varied choice. But what makes this hotel outstanding is the service. From...

The hotel was very nice and the room on the 6th floor has a very beautiful view. The staff is very friendly, especially the chef and manager at breakfast. They made us a special cake for our 2 yr anniversary as a surprise. They also got us all the traditional foods to try. My husband and I recommend this hotel!
