Situated in Negombo, this was an ideal base to start to our tour of Sri Lanka. The hotel is lovely. The rooms are very large overlooking the gardens or pool and have excellent facilities. The staff are fantastic and the food was fabulous. On our second night we were invited to join other guests for the evening meal and we...

You can totally understand how Dickmans has such great reviews. Staff are lovely, and the pool Devine. Reasonably priced drinks and snacks from the menu meant that you could laze around the pool all day. The included breakfast has a great range of options. I stayed two nights during the low season in the delux pink room (worth the extra...

Attentive and helpful staff, room adequate without being anything special and breakfast reasonable. The lack of any evening meal facility was a disappointment having arrived late in the afternoon after a 12 hour flight. To be told that the credit card machine wasn't working and I had to pay by cash was also a major inconvenience. If a taxi/tour guide...

Loved this great santuary and hideaway close to the airport! The service, the staff and the food were just incredible and I was totally impressed by my first visit to Sri Lanka. They also arranged for me to go to a near-by Ayurvedic resort for some really nice pampering treatments. Absolutely recommended!
