Anita B. Solo travelers Australia, July 22, 2015
A faultless stay

Location, staff and lovely feel of the hotel
This was my first time to Sri Lanka and was a solo traveller there for business & to meet friends. By the time I arrived at the hotel it was 1am in the morning. There was someone there and I was taken straight to my room which all I wanted at that time in the morning. No fuss or having to take passport or credit card copies thank goodness! Staff were lovely and were very friendly. The rooms are a good size espc for single or couples. Location was perfect and I could not have been in a better spot. Breakfast was yummy and was told not to worry about any prices on the menu as my breakfast was included and to order what I wished. Would definitely recommend.

nice but not 5 star

Location was great, food was nice and Vogue Illustrations
Stay was ok, I was just disappointed in the building and facilities - photos are misleading! Pool area was not inviting at all, and no idea where the lovely rooftop restaurant area is, it looked like a storage area. Generally I was expecting a beautifully decorated Art Deco building but it is slightly shabby, and lacks atmosphere/soul. Would have been less disappointed if it was a lower star rating perhaps? It wouldn't take much to bring it up to scratch. Staff were lovely though, not all bad.

Ggod food and location

The food ,location and the help from the front desk
A nice Hotel with great decor. Only a few points to raise but of no real major concern. The hotel need a sticked bar as gin is their only spirit. The kitchen extractor blows strong cooking smells over the pool so an alternative extractor chimney would be benidicial to those around the pool. And finally the kitchen needs to be open after 9 pm as there is no food room service For this reason it could jot be called a 5 star hotel but a 4 star. The staff are all very helpful and polite.

Great Place

Location Staff and Food
We enjoyed our stay and we totally recommend to all. Nice staff, clean and great location. My only small issue was with the room which had a glass door and no curtain (We stayed in Sun suite)thus at night, light was still streaming into the room until staff turned off the lights in the corridor.
