Under renovation, but a comfortable short stay

Great location looking out to sea. Easy to access

I have stayed at this hotel many times. In the last stay the main outside section and outdoor dining area was closed and sealed off for renovation, though you can still sit at an outdoor bar by the pool to admire the sea view. I did not stay long enough for breakfast so cannot comment on the location for the breakfasts. My stay was very easy and comfortable, and I did not hear any sounds of renovation. With all the competition in Colombo and with the work going on, this hotel may be slightly over priced. But it works!
Nishant G. Business travelers India, June 29, 2014
Comfortable and peaceful

next to beach, good bar and good location

The stay was excellent... the hotel is located on the beach and is close to Dutch hospital where you find some of the best restaurants in Colombo.. The only sad part is Internet.. Though the wi-fi is complimentary the speed kills your interest to work online..
