    3/5

    Not good start of holiday

    I received email from manager that hotel is closed ( day before staying in hotel) due to some government issues and got directed to other hotel . Even though Chitra was helpful it wasn’t hotel I would chose and it added stress to my 32 hrs flight not knowing exactly where I’m staying .

    4/5 Good

    Everything about the place was great. The only small disappointment was that there was no direct access to the beach. The manager/owner was extremely helpful and the breakfast very good too.

    Excellent choice

    The accommodation was excellent. We arrived early but were welcome to get changed, leave our bags, and gather information from the extremely helpful owners. Wonderful views along the beach from the reception area. Our rooms were a good size with small balcony, very well appointed, with tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms as well as in the shared lounge. Helpful staff to assist with requests, and to serve the fantastic breakfast. Continental and curries etc -everything freshly made and organic. Slightly difficult to find restaurants for the evening meal, but close to trains, and tuktuks always available.

    Pros: Staff, room appointments, breakfast.

    Cons: More information on restaurants, activities in the vicinity.

    Location: Very close to beach.

    An oasis in the middle of chaos!

    We loved this hotel and were sorry to only spend one night here. Fantastic views over Colombo and right next to the railway station. Really welcoming and helpful manager.
