"I cannot fault this hotel. Everything about it was sublime. The rooms are gorgeous, the staff attend to your every need. Even preparing a wonderful and very early breakfast on the morning we left Sri Lanka. If you want to enter and leave Sri Lanka in a happy and relaxed style then book this place. It was one of the best properties we stayed in in our 11 days in Sri Lanka"

"We really enjoy our stay in Rockwell. It's a nice hotel located in Borella area, which is not too far away from the Fort railway station (about rs400 by tuktuk), and you can walk to Odel and The House of Fashion in about 15mins. The outside of Rockwell is more like a private house than a actual hotel. Interior decoration shows the owners really have taste. Our room was not big, but felt so good.  Comfy bed, large LCD TV, and a balcony, although you can only see the street from the second floor balcony. The owner and staffs are very friendly. Breakfast is served in the ground floor dinning area, and there is a small yard, very in style. Here you can imagine you're on vacation in anywhere of the world. Overall still a good hotel, convenient location, quiet environments, friendly staffs, and most importantly, really t style."

"Ellens Place at start was a let down when one saw that the picture on net does not match the building before you. But best part is that was the only disappointment. The place is neat clean and small- but the rooms are large and so are the smile- not only the only they wear but one that they put on your face. Let me say- it is a different hotel- puts you at ease. Ok. They do not have Hard Drink license or a BAR. They can serve you beer. They don't have a restaurant but a neat 12 seater dinning place - what else would you ask when the hotel has just 7 rooms. Do check if you are renting the room in the 7 room property or the Villa- the charges and the experience is totally different."

"The experience was fantastic even before arrival, Chamal e-mailed us twice to ensure that we have Airpot pick up. We were greeted by Samanthi and their son Dasun like family and of course a fantastic Lime Juice! The room was very clean & tasteful we had total privacy as their was an attached washroom. We were treated by Chamal and Samanthi as family and felt very much at home, my 13 year Old was spoiled by Samanthi like he was her own son. I have family close by and they kept dropping in to see us and were accommodated very well. I can write a book about Samanthi's cooking which was fantastic! The Breakfast everyday was different her presentation was great. I miss our chats over breakfast and would go back any time. Fantastic place to stay."
