Jordan from United Kingdom
Stayed one night in September 2015
Nice breakfast, average room, quite expensive
Positive: The hotel was fairly close to the airport and the breakfast was nice. Negative: The only problem is that the hotel charges quite a hefty early check-in fee (more than half of the cost of 1 night). The hotel was not particularly busy at the time of our stay, so the charge seemed a bit opportunistic. I understand the rationale behind the fee, but thibk that a supplementary fee closer to $10 would have been more appropriate - especially given the amenities and price of the hotel. Also, if you plan on going to Colombo for the day, best in mind that it is a good 45 minute/1 hour journey by public bus.

Convenient and peaceful stop off point
Location (near airport). Very friendly and helpful staff. Room size
The hotel manager arranged for a car to pick me up. It was little bit pricey, but worth it to know that I didn't have to waste any time trying to get a taxi to take me straight to the hotel and rip me off when I arrived in the early hours of the morning! The room was spacious and a good size bed, but the pillows were old and lumpy! I did tell the manager, so hopefully the hotel has replaced them now. I requested a taxi in the morning to take me into Columbo, but said that I wanted something more reasonable than the night before, and the hotel duly arranged an extremely reasonably priced taxi. The breakfast was more than adequate for the price. This is the perfect place for a stop off point either before or after a flight.

Friendly staff but a few things need working on.
close to the airport, breakfast included, free wifi
This was more of a sweet guest house than a hotel but I was fine with this. I tool a tuk tuk from the airport and decided on this place as it was close to the airport and I only had an overnight stay. I really did like this place but i think a few things need working on. I checked in rather late at 8pm and the gentleman behind the desk asked me what I wanted for the inclusive breakfast he didnt give me a menu or anything to look at but said omlette and waiting for me to answer so i agreed. The room was nice and like i mentioned very much like a b&b no a hotel. The wifi password written next to the phone didnt work so i called reception and a young boy who worked their came up to give me a different one. I informed him that the tv wasnt working and as he english was lacking he did apologised but said their was nothing he could do. The next morning breakfast was placed in the dining room for me and it was nice, they had given me toast and fruit with me omlette which was a nice touch. The two young boys who brought my breakfast were very friendly and nice. Upon leaving there was another gentleman behind the desk who informed me it was his first day but he was very sweet and asked me how my stay was and ordered my a taxi for my trip to the airport. As i was leaving the gentleman who had checked me in came outside whilst i was getting in the taxi and told me to 'write a good review' and then turned on his heel before i even answered and went back inside. The guy on his first day waved me off.
