An airport hotel, but it doesn't feel like it... The hotel has two sides, try and get the new side, the rooms are more modern, with nicer bathrooms... The service is great, staff can't do more to make your stay a good one, offered tips of places to see and eat outside the hotel... The pool is large, a shame...

Cool One to stay and get freshen up to start your daily business works. Of course the location is bit away but its totally gives individual complete privacy. Food was good and served as it was need or liked. The options are good one.

I've been here on several occasions, which leads to a sense of of familiarity, and the credit goes to the hotel staff. Very pleasant and soft spoken staff, something that is hard to find. The restaurant supervisor Mr. Rasad Lakmal Arangalla, is one such person. His one on one approach, and hotel etiquettes are commendable. He definitely makes your dinner...

We were told that the hotel is rated 4 stars, and in some areas it was. The staff were excellent; the hotel looks lovely in wonderful gardens; the room was very nice; the food was generally wonderful; and being a short drive from the airport was welcome. So why my qualified review? It was the little things that let the...

If you need a convenient hotel near the airport, this place is ok. The rooms are large, but the sleep comfort suffers with the miniature pillows supplied. The only nice thing is the large outdoor pool in the hotel garden. Even thought the garden has seen better times. There is no regular pool attendant, so you have to wait if...
