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

Airport pickup was very convenient, especially as it was late. Manju was very welcoming and a great host. He gave us much information AND provided filtered water! So good. The shared meal was a wonderful idea.

Value doesn’t equal price

I came all the way from the airport to the airport and the check-in process was quite fast and the staff were friendly despite my late arrival. But comparing value to price, it is still expensive for the room.

4/5 Good

Architecturally sound facility.

Convenient location, friendly staff and relatively clean back yard. The facility is architecturally very sound including the interior design of all common areas.

Pros: the lay out, the colours and the design.

Cons: the backyard could be tidied up a bit more to be perfect.

Location: supermarket is seven minute walk.

Best for Transit Passengers

It was a good setup, cozy and well managed. Very close to the airport and Negombo. Well suited for transit passengers.
