4/10 Fair

Definitely not value for money
Would not recommend - it’s rotting. Left stay early. More staff and cleanliness required to meet standards. Poor/no wifi in rooms (not just me - families sent children to lobby for electronic time in the evening as only place with service) Breakfast was cold - tables dirty attracting flies - need more staff - only tried once and returned the next day but walked out again immediately. Need to upgrade their reception systems - I wasn’t on a printed out list of people checking in that day causing delay. For the price paid the standard was not sufficient.

Your staff is amazing. Nothing is too difficult for them. It makes a world of difference when they bend over backwards to make your stay a comfortable one. Good was great too. Your chefs were willing to cook any special needs.

2/10 Poor

For all those who are thinking of booking this hotel BE AWARE!!! A SUBSTANTIAL ABOUT OF CASH WAS STOLEN FROM WIFE'S BAG!!!,the power kept going on and off numoueous times during our stay,when I got back to Colombo I realised $3200 was missing i got in touch with the hotel asap who apparently looked at the cctv footage failed to tell us is there is no footage capture during the power outages, during one of the outages our money was stolen diapite the room being locked . I even got in contact with the GM of this hotel who who replied with no apology or empathy. i have contacted the sri lanakan tourism police who are investigating the incident,I know I won't get my money back however for future tourist who visit this hotel be AWARE hopefully you won't go though what I have encounterd.

2/10 Poor

A huge dissapointment
1- The hotel staff are very slow, and the problem is they are slow when it comes to solving issues, it was 10PM I am about to sleep and had to call the reception 3 times to ask for someone to come and fix the AC which was very very loud as if I am in a factory not a hotel room. 2- The bedsheets were not clean, the first time I asked the staff to come and change the bed sheets and they did, they changed it with another dirty sheets, so it seems that all bed sheets they have are dirty. 3- The water was cold from the tab till I called them to come and fix the water heater, so staying for 2 nights I had to face 3 issues which were not all properly solved. such a dissapointment.
