                            It was convenient for me and at the right price.

                            Everything was fine except there was a smell of smoke on the 8th floor when I thought I had a Non smoking room.

                            Personel was great, really helpfull and nice

                            This was probably a good hotel but it definitely got old now... AC was making lots of noise, I could see outside between the join of my windows and it was horribly humid in my room. Only one of the two elevators was working so you had to wait a looooooong time before you get a lift... And one last thing about the price

                            Th ereception was smart

                            Place is being over-hauled - I was there x 2 days - incessant banging by men with sledge hammers - from 09.00 to 18.00 as they demolished a building attached to the hotel - so all noise reverberated through the entire hotel. I appreciate that work is needed - but management had pushed the boat out (ha!) and had x 2 men doing the (manual) demolition. I pointed out that x 4 or x 6 men would at least get the job over and done with quicker - and this would be better for guests. Shrug of the shoulder from the manager. He really was not bothered. Oh - and the waiter in the bar - his trousers looked as if they had not been washed in weeks. So bad it quite put me off my lunch. Nothing really bad - just way off the standard you would expect. A lovely hotel that has clearly gone wrong.......

                            It is not similar to a 5 stars hotel.It needs a real renovation.

                            It was a very good atmosphere with lots of social activities, but also not too loud from the rooms.

                            It was a bit too expensive given the rooms.

                            Location, comfort and oceon view.

                            Non professional management unmindful of the comitments with the guests and guest relation aspects of Hotel Management. Failing on this aspect eclipsed all other qualities.

                            Hotel charm was typically Sri Lankan. Being so close to Galle road along side the beach made it very attractive. The hotel is minutes from anywhere.

                            Hotel seemed tired and publci areas could do with a bit of a spruce up. The 2 elevators are not enough to keep up with guest traffic.
