                Location wise are amazing it’s very nice just caution of railways and sometimes wakes u up its horn. Bad side was the towel too rough apart from that all are fine . Staff are very accommodating and reception / manager were very kind and friendly.

                Very close to beautiful beach

                we stayed here for 2 days. very helpful and friendly staff. good food. we could see that lot of improvements going on. but did not disturb us. easy access to city by train. we went to colpetty and bambalapitiya by train from mt lavinia railway station. it costs less than a dollar by a 3 wheel taxi from hotel to the station. it is much convenient than driving in colombo traffic.

                easy access to beach, city and excellent food

                We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Place look a bit old - but it provides you a value for money service. You will need to walk across the rail track - but it is safe as you will not find a big traffic. Recommended for those who are looking for a budget/comfortable accommodation with good food close to the famous Mt Lavinai Beach

                Location

                The hotel has a good facilitation and located at the best location in Kandy, I would say if you like to watch the scenery from the bird eye view, you should stay here.Unless you will be trouble to going out in the night because it is not easy to find Tuk Tuk at that time

                wonderful breakfast

                although close to the train lines, like much of mt lavinia, we had a room that was less noisy than others would have been, but even then we were so happy with its closeness to the beach and the wonderful food available both at the hotel and at the nearby beach restaurants. a great spot to explore colombo from.

                Good location, very clean rooms, very polite, HONEST and friendly helpful staff and an owner who takes a personal interest in the guests well being..

                very comfortable and clean rooms, located in a good part of Colombo with its own garden and private beach for a very, very reasonable price. The most impressive thing was the honesty of the staff, my mum had accidentally dropped her gold ring in the room and not realizing it we went off to town and to our surprise, the staff cleaning the room found it and placed it on the bedside table!!!You feel very welcomed and at home in this hotel as the owner is there most of the time and goes out of his way to arrange things for you and keep the guests comfortable!!! I'll definitely recommend this place to anybody as you get more than your money's worth!

I really liked the trains coming past, walking across the tracks for a beer and dinner on the beach, or swim, if you want a more genuine experience come here, it's quite nostalgic.

The staff were great and very polite the room was comfy and had all the usual things on offer, good shower and hot water (bonus)very clean. I would go back there for sure.

                I stayed in Ranveli fro 2 nights, staff was very nice and helpful at all times, beach is 1 minute away from the hotel, on the beach is a lot of bars and restaurants with the great menu. Swimming pool was the highlight of this hotel, just loved it! Breakfast was a bit disappointing just because i expected something very sri lankan, but there was omelet and toast which actually is in every hotel in sri lanka :) If i come back again, will definitely stay there again!

                Enjoyable stay in a great location close to the beach. Value for money was excellent, a nice friendly staff, well managed hotel. The food was good and very cheap. I noticed that residents from other hotels were using the restaurant for this reason. Staff were quick to sort out any issue. A relaxing stay with visitors from many countries. I noticed that a group of Germans came back to the hotel 28 times!! Germans never seem to stay in bad hotels.

                We can't say enough good things about this hotel. We have stayed in many lovely hotels, including budget hotels in many countries,and this rates among the best value for the money. Lovely clean pool, beautiful long sandy beach, clean rooms, helpful friendly staff and free Wi-Fi. Only downside, train passes between hotel and beach. However, all beach resorts in this area have the same issue.

                Affordable hotel close to beach”

                Close to beach, friendly staff, clean room

                The room was simple but clean. All public areas was clean and nice. The staff was very friendly and the location was good. woth to know is that ALL beachside hotels in Colombo is by the railroad track and you can hear the trains passing by very clearly between 06:00 to 21:00. It didnt bother us that much but the hotels should make it clear in their descriptions. That aside this hotel was very good and affordable.

                A very clean swimmingpool but close to railway”

                Friendy staff, clean swimmingpool, cheap

                The hotel is nice! The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel have a nice and clean swimming pool. The rooms are clean but the wifi does not work in the hotel room but you can find a good internet connection in the restaurant and lobby. I recommend the hotel. One disturbing thing is the railway. The trains sounds a lot but the trains starts at 6:30AM and stops around 10:30PM so you will not be disturbed during the night.
