Stayed 1 night in September 2017
Wonderful Staff”
After a flight landing very early, the hotel let me check in at 7.30am. I was a bit surprised by the hotel when I first saw it but soon fell in love with it. Very quiet (only about 5 rooms) but clean and comfortable. The photos are a little deceptive, but there is a nice little terrace on the 3rd floor where you can take your own drinks and relax while watching the waves crash in the sea and the train trundle past. It is about a 30 min walk to the fort (beware of anybody that starts talking to you on the way...I was ripped off by a person that offered to show me a very special festival that was happening that day and then the Tuk Tuk driver tried to charge me 8000 Rupies.....it should only be about 300!) There is not much around the hotel and if you are looking for a night out then you should maybe stay closer into town. I asked the staff for guidance on my trip around Sri Lanka and they could not have been more helpful. They made me feel really at home which was just what I needed when first arriving. I would stay here again if I were in Colombo.

Above average”
Great stuff, but overall the hotel is much is much overpriced. "Ocean view" is not worth much and constant trains don't let you sleep at night.

Nice view but need more stores around the hotel”
Overall it was a nice stay. Clean room and very helpful stuff. The only downside is that you need to walk a bit to eat or do anything. You can use tuktuk but I prefer small shops close by. But if you want hotel with nice view with reasonable price. This is it.

Great stay again”
Again I absoluely enjoyed my stay at the Ocean Front! The staff was outstandingly friendly and makes you feel welcome immediately. I really enjoy this small Hotel, and I love the front room towards the ocean. Yes as I wrote last time there is a train running in front of the hotel, but not very often and not during the night, so I do not feel disturbed. The rooms are basic but lovely decorated, have all it needs and are clean and well looked after. Breakfast is nice too. Will definitely stay here again.

More of a B&B than a hotel ”
With only 6 rooms I dont think it should be called a hotel to me it was more or less a B&B. The most helpful staff I have come across in a long time very very helpful. The rooms although are spacious mine needed a bit of refurbishing as it was looking a bit tired. Other than that enjoyed my stay and would stay again as it was in a decent location.

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.
