location, comfortable and nice staff

Very enjoyable

Character, Location, Staff
This historic hotel is worthwhile staying in for a night if passing through Colombo. There isnt too much to do in the city so relaxing by the pool listening to the waves, enjoying a delicious champagne breakfast and a sundownwer cocktail are perfect activities. Staff are very friendly too.
Geoffrey F. Couples South Africa, July 26, 2014
Disappointed by amount of constuction but ..

Great swimming pool, excellent room service breakfast and lovely room
We were very disappointed on arrival to find more than half the hotel under constuction! It was difficult to reach the front door and we had to carry our bags from the road over the rubble to reach the hotel. Front office staff were not very understanding or attentive on arrival. However the room itself was very comfortable and in all aspects met our expectations. The view from our room was of a derelict building but the swimming pool on the seafront was great and dinner on the terrace was good value for money. The room service breakfast was wonderful value and of an international standard. We liked the location on the sea with tuk tuks always availalbe though the street outside had no pavement! I'm sure the hotel could make an effort to improve the entrance / parking area for guests and the pathway to their bar "In on the Green".
