Stayed at the hotel on my first visit to Sri Lanka, the staff was very helpful and very friendly. The breakfast buffet was very good. Good local and international mix. Room and pool was good. Had a walk in the garden too. The bath room needs a little maintenance and the rest of the stay was very good. Will recommend...

On a previous visit to Sri Lanka we stayed in a hotel in Colombo itself which was about a 50 minute drive to the airport. As we had a very early flight on this occasion we thought it would be far better if we could stay nearer to the airport. Our driver recommended this hotel & we were so glad...

I stayed here one night in an executive room while between flights. Very pleasantly surprised at the atmosphere of the hotel which was nothing like a regular airport hotel. Extremely comfortable, efficient and in beautiful surroundings.

We spent our last evening in Sri Lanka at restaurant Buzz (at the Gateway). It's a nice place and they provide an extensive range of dishes, sri lankan but also western food. The drinks were a bit overpriced but the service, especially from Rasad, was really good!

...with the colour green, this is the place to be. Located 20 minutes from the airport, home to lush green forest, plenty of vegetation, long walks through 38 acre property, you could see few Geckos around too, this is an eco friendly hotel in its true sense. The gym is well equipped, buffet is the star stopper with local Indian...

This was a perfect location for our first night in Sri Lanka. We arrived quite late but the reception from the staff was immaculate. We were given an upgrade on our room and a late night supper - a brilliant start to our holiday.

Excellent service from the staff and a good level of amenities. The food in the Buzz restaurant is excellent - could do with an alternative restaurant choice for longer staying customers but the soon to open Asian restaurant should help. Overall a very good hotel.
