British influence in Sri Lanka
Wonderful hotel for foreigners who are used to certain amenities. Though if you are adverse to British colonialism, this isn't the place for you.

Bedbugs and Bad Food
Stayed for three nights in early December. The hotel is located ten miles south of Colombo centre, and is located in a very poor part of the city. In fact, it's encircled by shacks and sqaulor. The only option to get into the city besides an expensive taxi is a long ride on a motorscooter. The hotel has seen better days. It's enveloped in scaffolding, so they are at least making an effort to rehabilitate it. All the rooms have a view of the ocean, though you'll never hear it as the air conditioning is loud (but mercifully effective). I awoke after a night of feeling being bitten on my right leg, and sure enough I had a couple of the tell-tale rows of 'morning, lunch and dinner' bites which are left by bedbugs. I immediately informed the manager, Mr. Amath. Unfortunately as part of his room inspection the pillows were placed directly on my luggage (!). As I expected, he denied that the room had any bedbugs. He slipped a note under my door allowing me to change rooms, but the note was left late in the evening after I had gone to sleep. I detected no new bites the rest of the trip, but have spent countless hours post vacation isolating my clothes and luggage and praying that I haven't infested my house. The food - be it the free buffet offered for breakfast or in the dining room - was dreadful and inedible. Avoid this hotel.

Standard gone down, but still value for money
Although we liked the location, cleanliness, lobby and friendly reception staff, the restaurent in particular the breakfast room staff performance was far from satisfactory, We went there about one hour before closing time for breakfast but we found no tables made ready for guests arriving and we had to make our own table. The used tables not cleaned up and made for other guests. We found some food items not available since they are not replenished once consumed by previous guests. We asked for some yoghurt ( Curd) that was finished when we went but never brought to us.Never experienced before in a 4 star hotel. Hope the hotel management will take some action since we like this hotel

Great location - hotel a little tired....
The location was great, with wonderful views of the Colombo seafront. We had a great seafood dinner on the beach in the evening, which was something special (if a bit windy!). The hotel is looking a little bit tired and could do with some refurbishment in the common areas and bedrooms - our room was quite dark and not particularly modern - but I suppose that's part of the charm? Also, potential guests should be aware that this is a big hotel, full of large groups - and the communal areas aren't particularly restful of private (the pool is busy and there aren't enough sunbeds). OK - but not sure I'd stay again....
