    - Very friendly staff ready to assist in all matters. - Daily cleaning of rooms. - The kitchen is open late, you can order room service. - Manager ready to provide all necessary services, including organized tours of the more than reasonable prices, to invite the jeweler if you want to buy the gems are guaranteed the highest quality and the right price; give advice where to purchase accessories and much more. - Absolutely honest staff will never take your things or money from the room and retain things if you forget them somewhere on the site. - The beach is very close. - On the private area is access to the sea and sun beds free of charge.

    You could put a minus for the hotel for the railway that runs near the fence, but I think it's not a hotel problem. Notice that the trains are not running at night. The last train leaves at 10 pm, the first trian goes at 6-7 am. The railway line is laid over the west coast of Sri Lanka and if the tourist wants to stay in a hotel located near the shoreline, he must put up with the trains. If you don't want - you can rent another hotel, away from the sea, close to the main road. Then you have to put up with the gas content and high density of vehicles that are constantly honking to each other.

    i do not recommend this hotel at all !! I really have know idea how it's classified as three star beach resort !! 1-the reality that it should be one star not three star ,the room had literally nothing ,the washroom was horrible that there was no way for me to have a shower 2-it's not a beach resort !! It's next to the beach but not on the beach !! To reach the beach you have to get out of the hotel then walk for 50 mtr to reach the beach

    the staff were friendly

    the railway line is 20 yards from the rooms.the trains stop at midnight but start again at around 6am.when a train goes past which is often the room shakes.this was not mentioned when i booked the room.also there is a disco which on one occasion didn't finish til midnight.if you want a decent nights sleep then i wouldn't stay at this hotel.

    Close to the sea and to Colombo

    Old building and furniture, rail ways near the hotel and they go every 15 mins - very noisy and you can't sleep, no tv while it is in room description.

    The hotel was fairly cheap, located close to the beach, friendly staff, basic breakfast, but Sufficient and nicely served

    Although the hotel was fairly cheap, bear in mind extra 10% of service charge and 15% of VAT charge to the bill. Although located on the beach, there is a railway track in between through which you need to walk to get to the beach

    They had free wifi at the reception area. There is also a nice large garden outside which was good for our 3-year-old daughter to run around in. Its location was good but we had to cross the railtrack each time to get to the other side where the beach was.

    It is definitely not a 3-star, nor would I call it a resort. It's more 1 or 2-star max. It's just next to the railtrack and you won't get a decent night sleep unless your room is at the other end furthest away. They messed up our 1st night booking (booked later, directly with the hotel). We were given a terrible room with dirty aircon & cold shower. On the following 2 nights, we were given the "correct room" (booked via Booked.net) which was slightly better. But the sink tap was broke, we were given "blankets" which are actually bed sheets and the towels are like sandpaper (that's how my husband call it). Our 3rd night there, our room door knob didn't work and we were locked in from inside & couldn't get out of our room!

    Very close to the beach. Sea view rooms. Air conditioner and low price. Extremely friendly and helpful staff.

    Very close to the reilways. Usually I don't care, but in this case the noise is so loud that it sounds like thains go throught your room. It was the first time I had problems with sleeping in my life. This hotel is not 3 stars of course. 1 or 2 may be. Nobody cleaned our room during 5 days stay. The building is quite old also.

    The public areas of this hotel are clean and well maintained however the bedroom was extremely tatty and not very clean. You are provided with only one towel, no mossie net and only one mossie coil provided for the duration of your stay so a great place for hungry mosquitos but not so good for the guest ! Much cleaner and better value places in the immediate area...I Won`t be returning.

    It is closer to seaside

    There is no proper food for vegetarians. Though the location is good and near by seaside, but it is far away from city.
