I went to Gamodh Citadel on business, we stayed in a triple room. The property looked new and rooms were very clean and spacious. The room layout was a bit strange where the sink was right in the middle of the room and the shower was separately placed on the left side and the toilet on the right, but nothing... More

Staff is friendly and facilities are good. However food is not worth to the amount you pay. They have to improve the quality and quantity of the food and look at customer point of view. We tried both Sri Lankan and Western menu, and western menu is far better than Sri Lankan. We had to instruct the kitchen to get... More

Loved the outdoor area at Gamodh! The pool side area and table made perfect for a swim and having a drink. The staff were helpful and we were provided with welcome drinks also, the food was on time but the quality of their western food was not good. The Sri Lankan rice and curries however were of a good standard.... More

The rooms are clean, basic and large (we had a queen bed and another single bed). Hence a room suitable for families. The rooms are equipped with kettle, coffee and towel. We enjoyed our dinner and breakfast at the in-house restaurant, the curry rice set was yummy and service was good.

The rooms were nice, and the pool was a great place to cool down from the extremely hot weather and relax. The staff was friendly but it all felt a bit commercial. Especially the questionnaire we had to fill-out before check-out was possible... Besides this we were wrongly informed about the way to get to the ancient city highlights: we... More

Whilst in touring the ancient city i spent 2 nights, there appeared to be an odd smell in the room especially the bathroom and toilet. The staff are really nice, the food is reasonably good, my pick is the vegetable fried rice and the devilled chicken. The drinks are exceptionally well priced for a hotel and the only hotel that...

The room was very clean and was quite a new hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful and the food was good too we only had breakfast here though.
