The professional and courteous staff made this our favourite hotel during our recent trip to Sri Lanka. The hotel room and bathroom were very comfortable and in excellent condition.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Everything about this hotel was fantastic! Staff and service was excellent. Staff were attentive and anticipated our needs without being intrusive. Facilities were of a high standard and included everything we needed. The outdoor pool was exceptionally enjoyable. WiFi was excellent - both in the room and at the pool. It’s worth booking a club Horizon room as the lounge is worth every penny.
