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

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 :)

This is the very small Hotel only have 7 room .

Room Good and clean .. Internet Strong , Good Sea Veiw
Every Thing is ok , But a bit over price . This type of Hotel should set the price at US$ 50 to 60.- Per night .. But I paid over US$ 100.-

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!

Good Motel Rather than Hotel

Cheap price, good services & good food
We are a family of four pax( 2 adults + 2 children above 18 yrs of age )!We have booked 2 delux rooms ! Rooms were quite big and have all reqd room ameneties like aircon,LCD,hot&cold shower etc and all were in good working conditions ! The food prepared was also good and enjoyable ! The only thing I don't like is its location ! It is located little bit away from the busy life of the city but near to the famous Casino ! So casino lovers should stay here rest all should stay away from this hotel ! last but not least please be prepared that this is some sort of Motel having limited rooms ! It is not actually hotel !
