          Location if you are coming or going from the airport. food and service was excellent and good value for the money. nice tv and dialog channels and comfortable beds and bed linen

          being charged for wifi. it is so outdated because everyone knows it is free to you once installed so best to include it it in the room cost and call it free

          staff were superb, and complementary pick up/drop off service was excellent, and I suggest should be highlighted on the website. It is a 24 hour service, and the front desk is also manned 24 hours, both were of great value to me.

          Nice, smart hotel, close to the airport, courtesy bus.

          Checking in and out were painful.

          Great location for the airport, 10 minutes away and free taxi there, Big Gym which was great to use. Nice pool.

          Food buffet was below par. Room was adjoining another room as most seemed to be and you could hear even low talking from the next room which was really shocking it felt as though they were in the room with us. You have tro pay for internet and its not that cheap.

          Good size rooms, reasonable food, staff mostly very helpful, close to airport.

          Service in restaurant hit and miss.

          I liked the clean, comfortable room for a good rest.

          The check in and check out process was not efficient and confused as I paid through Booked.net and the hotel did not have the records.

          the best Hotel in Sri Lanka I like it

          • Average rating
            10.0
        • Single

          The proximity to the airport (I had a late arrival to Sri Lanka), efficient check in and check out, availability of hotel counter at the airport, free airport pick up, great shower, large bed and room, good selection at breakfast and great view of the pool at the breakfast room.

          I was placed on the crew floor which meant there was noise in the middle of the night however, this can easily be avoided if you ask the hotel to not place you on crew floor during booking or at check in.
