Very nice hotel
Comfy rooms, nice pool and good buffet breakfast
after months of backpacking this was a welcome break. the room was lovely: air-conditioned, comfy beds, tv etc. the buffet breakfast had a good variety and was tasty. the pool area was nice, a small pool though. i'd definitely recommend this hotel, it's nothing special but it's a good hotel.

Good hotel for a few days
Pool
Have spent the first two nights in Sri Lanka there to organize my further trip. It served that purpose quite well. A bit out of the center.

Does the Job
Good Value for Money
We had only arrived for a quick overnight stay before a flight the following morning. Having stayed in a number of hotels throughout Sri Lanka this was the best value for money. Good food, large clean comfortable room and a cool pool area.

Established hotel with traditional standards.
Staff extremely friendly and helpful.
We went to the Clarion in March 2012 for the second England/Sri Lanka Test Match in Colombo. The hotel was fine for our stay but the location was not especially convenient for the journey to the P.Sara Cricket Stadium in Colombo. We made a mistake about our arrival time due to flight delays but when we arrived the hotel staff had taken this into account (as they were full over the Easter period) and organised another nearby hotel for us to stay in for the first evening. Many thanks for that! The staff could not have been more helpful in arranging taxis and transport for luggage the day after. The journey across Colombo was a shocker - a one hour free for all with no quarter given! Eventually after three days we moved to a more central hotel for the end of the Test Match. I stress that this was not the fault of the hotel in any way. Would I go again? - For a relaxing break - Probably - For another Colombo Test Match - No. the journey was just a bit too much.

very good restaurant!
a bit far from the centre - Fort, etc - but reachable via tuk tuk in 30-45 min. big room and clean. very friendly staff, ready to help and inform. poor quality of wi-fi.
