Glorious Oasis
6.7
Have stayed here the past 3 years and will keep coming back because it has a beguiling charm, welcoming staff and superb location overlooking ocean and crashing surf. Also close to the Ratmalana airport where one can book Helitours flights to various places on east coast and avoid driving. The Sunday evening buffet features local delicacies…and don't miss the copious dessert options. There is a faded charm here…best days past..but redolent with colonial atmosphere and where else can you see so many wedding parties and photo sessions with Kandy dancers busting best moves?

Colonial charm
6.7
We checked in late and we received a room on 1st floor but then aircon had been left on really cold and the room was wet including all walls and ceilings, the staff moved us and upgraded us to the 5th level straight away. The breakfast buffet is second to none along with the colonial style and sunset views

Lovely hotel, food and view were both outstanding, rooms are quite dated but clean. The rest of the hotel is beautiful example of colonial style.

The most beautiful colonial hotel with high standards, stunning and beautiful location, staff superb, food astonishing in its diversity, wi fi brilliant, rooms so comfy, staff helpful and attentive,historically wonderful. One downfall was minibar/fridge, which was unsuitable for a deluxe room and stopped working, but was mended within 4 mins of informing staff it did not work. For its age it ran like a smooth new vessel, butas being built 1806 it was aging beautifully, just remember it is not a new 5 star but deserves every star. 2 beaches, one beach with fish market and restaurant, beautifully romantic , both beautiful gorgeous pool, terrace bar pool area bar and dining area, morning afternoon and evening every area was just a joy being there.

Service degrading
5
Hotel is surviving on reputation rather on actual performance. Service personel and waiters are often confused and need more management attention. According to street rumors the reason might be that the personel don't get their fair share of the service charges !

Fantastic Location and great breakfast
4.7
Room was nice with a view view of the sea. Breakfast spread is really great. It has a private beach access and a great seafood restaurant on the beach. Only one complaint, our room was not ready even at 4pm, when the check in time is 2pm.
