Was put here by SriLankan Airlines for a 19 hour transit. It was a 10-min drive from Colombo airport. Room was good and the buffet (I had breakfast and dinner) was excellent. At a cost of £22, the hotel can arrange a private tour with a driver/guide for 4.5 hours. My guide Chandana was extremely helpful. He brought me to...

It was good to be able to stumble to this hotel after a long and tedious overnight flight. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with it - clean and comfortable - but the only thing that stands out is the very nice swimming pool, albeit backing onto the motorway. The food was good and the bed comfortable, but apart from that,...

Stayed here overnight before starting our tour of Sri Lanka. We had a large, comfortable room with a lovely bathroom and shower. Well maintained grounds and friendly staff. Dinner buffet was good as was the breakfast. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Great Hotel to relax in before traveling. Friendly staff, clean rooms, great food and the service is fantastic. Plus the hotel is only 10-minutes far form the airport. Of course no much activities in negombo so I advise to book this hotel if you want only to enjoy staying and eating at the hotel.

Stayed here just one night before we left Sri Lanka after holiday. It really is one of the nicest hotels we've ever stayed in. Beautiful accommodation and surroundings, convenient, well-equipped. We weren't there long enough to sample everything; the pool looked good but we had to miss out on a dip. We did manage a walk round the grounds in...
