Menu options
Wish they had more gluten free options but was impressed when I wrote on the breakfast card 'no bread gluten free' the room service department called me to confirm what I would like.

Good suprise
Was visiting Sri Lanka for visa application purposes. Location was perfect for this, breakfast & sky bar staff not as enthusiastic as the rest of the teams. Pity, as the pool service, housekeeping, team in the executive lounge were delightful. Will recommend and prob come back. Thank you

Good Hotel
My wife and I stayed here at the end of April. Check in and Check out was good and efficient. Great breakfast with something for everyone .Nice pool and gym. The room had a comfortable bed and everything you may need . If there was a negative the room and corridors could do with a coat of paint and the grout on the shower tiles had some mould. But it is a good hotel and will stay again.

Not worth the money
Good- gym,pool and the bed Bad- everything else When a cup of tea cost 575 rs and nothing to show for it you know the place is bad. Everything is extremely expensive in this place so if you stay don't buy anything. Go outside and you can find everything you need for very good price. Buffet is a rip off. Don't fool by fresh oj, they don't have any. They use a local blend called darling as a substitute. No flavor at all. The only item is ok is the fish that they grill for u. Do your research and find a better place. There are so many hotels in walking distance

Amazing food and pool
Staff amazing here! I got an upgrade to 9th floor clubroom. Food great as well, massive buffee! The gym is alright, has most needed. The pool is great! The skybar amazing view in daytime and night. Everything was good but the elevator was broken for days. It took FOREVER to get anywhere. Not sure how it could break time after time? Soon new international hotels will open in Colombo and then I don't this this place will be so packed anymore.
