A must at first visit
The service, location and style
We like this hotel very much! The only thing I would criticise, is that some guests behavior is not in accordace With the style of the hotel - the hotel should have a stricter dress code. Even thoug the pool is in the restaurant area, it should not be allowed to take meals in swimming outfit!

family friendly, catered for older more established rungs of society, clean
I booked this place on friendo's recom but I was disappointed. If you are a solo traveler, I dont think this place matches well. This place is family oriented and floats on the poshiness of its 5 star rating. Besides being a basic mismatch, I felt like a mark for tips, the internet was unstable, and some of tge staff were snobs.

A colonial mansion with a breath taking view
Location, style, beach
We had a beautiful room with a bed with four poles, the colonial style was respected till the end. The character of the place brings lot of charm and takes one away into the past. We really had a great time at the hotel. Only thing, I wish the reception staff was more trained and able to give better information to us. The rest was just perfect. I would highly. Recommend this place for a great stay near Colombo with an access to the beach.

Beautiful Hotel with Historic Value
Food, Clean Room, Beautiful Buidling
A beautiful hotel building with colonial style. Really historic. Very popular for wedding ceremonies (worth to see because most of brides and grooms wear traditional costume). I enjoyed Sri Lankan traditional food, too. A little far from center so maybe not suitable for those who want to look around Colombo city.
