outstanding staff, clean and lovely place
I really enjoyed my stay at the Ocean Front! All staff, from Manager to the Service staff, were outstandingly friendly and helpful. There were couple of small things they made possible which were extraordinary friendly (but I won´t mention details as others then might request it and take it for granted). The room was friendly and very clean (as was the bathroom), and yes the train track at the front can be a bit noisy occasionally but it is only occasionally and in the end did not disturb me at all- and I had the room right to the front. Overall I can only say I will definitely stay here again!

Lovely boutique hotel with Friendly Staff
Cleanliness, Peaceful and Helpful Staff
Stay at the hotel was good. Had a peaceful and relaxing stay there. Small hotel with few guests ensured my experience with more attention from hotel staff. I even got to have a breakfast meal specially prepared for me since I was one of the few guests that morning.

friendly staff, nice location, good food and wine
food, wine, location
very friendly and professional staff, only thing to do is to do little bit more rather following all P&P , simply to show can - do - attitude from the waiter.

Ocean is the only good thing....
The view of the ocean is the good thing
This is not a good place to stay. The location is across the road from the sea...but is also across the road from a busy coastal railway line where trains honk and hoot as the approach the nearby station...most of the day and night. Deluxe room here was really basic and hotel is uninviting and unwelcoming...from the locked front door to the steep stairs up to reception and even steeper steps to rooms this place is awful and I have no idea why others have rated it so highly. It's a dump and relatively expensive compared to other much better hotels around. Worst place we stayed out of 14 hotels across this beautiful, hospitable island. Don't go there

Save your money
The are much nicer places to stay and you can get better value for money elsewhere. The bathroom was proportionally bigger than the bedroom!

1)Breakfast; 2)Staff Performance; 3)Location (near the railway station)
The guests could walk to the railway station (Kollupitiya) with 10 minutes. It was surprise to discover the Casino near the hotel. We enjoy the nice breakfast and the staff are very polite :)
