We booked ahead as we liked the look of the hotel, especially it's proximity to the beach. When we arrived we saw the incredibly steep drive up to the hotel and noticed a bell which said we could call for a tuk tuk to take us up. It's a free service offered by the hotel until 9pm. We got up...

We stayed 3 nights at the hotel. We booked a room with sea view and we were not disappointed to wake up every morning with such a nice view. It has a good location, nearby beach (max 10min by walk) and Galle fort (15 min in tuk tuk). For us, the only bad point was slow wifi, only available at...

We stayed in this lovely hotel for 2 nights; what a shame we hadn't discovered it earlier.. It was the best hotel we stayed at in Sri Lanka. The price was totally fair considering what you get. Everything was so clean (European clean!!!), everything was comfortably and nicely arranged and the hostess Renate and "her boys" were amazingly friendly and...

This hotel was clean, tidy and there wasn't really anything wrong with it. However we didn't really enjoy the ambience here. We didn't feel relaxed and we felt like we were being watched the whole time. It is also at the top of a very steep hill and I don't think the view warranted the walk. I also wouldn't use...

This hotel was the best we stayed in Sri Lanka, ended up staying 6 nights. The manager Prabath is a superb chef and the food was grand. The chalets are large and the bed was so comfy. It has a fridge to keep your drinks cold and the soft drinks are cheaper than buying from outside. It is not licensed...

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Panorama as part of our three-weeks-trip to Sri Lanka. We arrived without booking a room and Renatha who owns the place welcomed us with her warm smile and offered a room. The room was huge, very clean and comfortable. Every morning we were served a delicious breakfast (by Prebath who runs the place) which...

We had a great stay at Panorama. Very clean rooms, great breakfast, and a long stones throw from the beach area and a great pool area to relax and unwind. The walk up the ramp takes some getting used to but is good for the lungs and legs. Thanks to all the team there who were always very helpful. Only...
