                  • Near airport and stylish design elements. Staff mostly very helpful and comfortable bed. Good selection at breakfast, nice pool.

                    Hotel is old and this can be seen everywhere.

                    Badly trained staff doesnt know hospitality.

                  • Location close to the airport is convenient, the best Hotel in Sri Lanka I like and the business services are very efficient and discreet. The room has nice spotlessly clean wash rooms.

                    Staff hung around a little for a tip for minor tasks expecting tips, the shower is pretty old.

                    Very small gym.

                  • Free airport pick up, great shower, by far the best service from a 5 star hotel in Srilanka and staff is nice. The rooms are huge and very comfortable, the food is good.

                    Noisy wedding taking place nearly midnight, the bathroom filthy and expensive breakfast. The facilities were generally very poor.

                    This hotel is awful and extra beds werent comfortable to sleep on. Food could have been better, the grounds/gardens we really run down and need doing up.

                    Food is bad and spent over 6000 local currency for not fresh sea food, the front desk didnt speak English. The internet is terribly expensive, service slow in buzz restaurant.

                  • Good shuttleservice to airport, nice, smart hotel and prices too are pretty reasonable. The staff are pretty kind, rooms are nice and extensive menu of different cuisines in buzz restaurant. The swimming pool is large.

                    At least 1 hour drive, very little atmosphere and just not worth the money. Very poor customer service, no free internet and breakfast needs to be refreshed more often. Gardens we really run down and need doing up.
