Hotel located just 100meters away from beach and in between of railway track. Hotel room and cleanliness are superbly great. Breakfast satisfying and the service was good. But the only disappointment was the day we landed in the hotel we ordered lunch it was horrible experience. Food was fresh at all. Being known to berjaya hotel I feel so so disappointed and feel so bad. Coz I have been a customers of berjaya hotel in few countries. We had ordered prawns battered but prawns tasted not fresh at all. Ordered chicken breast it came shredded chicken. I have ordered nasi goreng (which my home town fav food) I know well the taste of it. I received rice which was dried like a rubber no taste at all and chicken satay dried like a bamboo. We ordered beef steaks with vegetables. Beef tasted old and vegetables are spoiled with some watery. This is the first time I have ever experiences horrible taste food in berjaya. I know how berjaya works and how they served customers. They have the yummious food ever unfortunately in Colombo we experienced different level of food which disappointed us. Instead we received complementary fruits parcel to our room. We would like to suggest berjaya hotel Colombo especially to the chef please don’t served customer with such food if you don’t have the fresh one please don’t served it. Hope these issues won’t happen to other customers

I would Recommend this hotel to any one who wants a relaxed holiday at a reasonable price at a convenient location ,with friendly staff and management.
Special mention should be made of the staff at the office(Namely Mr Brito )who always went out of his way to help.The Cleaning staff and the staff at the buffet were also ever willing to help.
Special mention must be made of the Director of banquets department who attended to matters on a personal basic in order for us to have a pleasant stay.

We stayed at Berjaya Hotel for a total of 2 weeks during our vacation in Sri Lanka.

Facilities: Nice and clean pool. Private beach where you can enjoy food and beverage. Spacious and clean rooms. We had direct ocean view with a small furnished balcony. The room had a well functioning AC. Be aware that the train tracks are situated just outside the hotel, so be prepared for some noise.

Services: The breakfast buffet had both Sri Lankan and continental dishes, however, with less variations in food choices. The service from the staff is in general quite slow, but they will always meet you with a smile.

This hotel offers actual value for money, and the services and facilities are in accordance with the price that you pay.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Berjaya and we will definately return as long as the price is not significantly increased.

We have just finished two weeks in the absolutely beautiful Sri Lanka and we are so glad that we happened upon this hotel. It is situated literally 30 seconds walk from the beach and it even has its own beach area. Rooms are of a decent quality and room service food is just incredible!

We were greeted by the most amazing, happiest porters you are ever going to meet. His name was Brito and always welcomed us with the biggest smile and made sure we had everything we needed.

The pool is well maintained by the expert pool man - Shiral, who was one of the most interesting and pleasant people we met on the whole trip. Every day he would make sure we well looked after, gave us advice about visiting Kandy, and was just an all round lovely guy.

A wonderful person we also met at the hotel was a waiter named Chamara. He was always happy to see us and supplied us with a good amount of Bacardi and Coke. :) He always knew what we wanted to order before we even said it and was a really great to person to see throughout the day.

This is a wonderful place, ran by some wonderful people. The layout is great. The pool is wonderful. The food is excellent and cheap. It's fairly close to local shops. We loved it here and are sad to go home.

First of all booking was done with breakfast, upon arriving they showed their booking which is for room only.
Secondly no TV in room upon complaining received a monitor,Tea kettle was full of dirt and ants, no foot mats in the room,a complete cheap room and hotel situated near railway track cannot sleep all night as trains are passing all night.what a nightmare. Will never come back to this hotel. Don't go by the pictures on the web, you will regret if you book here.

I organized a (surprise) party for my father's 70th birthday. We had ~40 guests and from the planning, to the preparation and the actual party itself everything went very smoothly without a hitch.

We were able to setup Kottu and Hopper stations as well as the main menu, which the guests said was delicious!

The room itself was decorated in a very classy fashion and they accommodated our musical instruments for a small band.

Overall, it was a great experience and I highly recommend Berjaya for your events!

I am more than happy to recommended this hotel.
All the staff in the hotel are friendly and very helpful. The front office manager,reception staff & concierge were always cheerful and it didn't take long for us to check in and check out.
The restaurant managers,waiting staff and chefs were friendly and very accommodating to our requests. We enjoyed the breakfast and the few times we had dinner, the food was always very tasteful.
The house keeping staff were very friendly & made very cute towels animals. The room was cleaned everyday, the floors were mopped plus fresh towels.
The Beach Bar Managers were always welcoming and the atmosphere in the bar was always friendly and relaxing, a lovely place to watch the sunset at the end of the day or just chill during the day.

We would like to thank all the staff at the hotel for making our stay a very pleasant one.

All in all we had a awesome time and look forward to going back again

If you a looking for a hotel with beach access for a low budget, around Mount Lavinia, search more for this is the place for you!

Hotel is built around early 2000, but reasonably well maintained, easy access, parking is there and provide considerably exceptional service to the visitors. Staff is very friendly, meals are good and rooms are comfortable. Rooms consist of all basic amenities such as AC, hot water, hair dryer, water heater, beverage packs, mini fridge, TV, etc. There is an overhead bridg across the railways towards the beach connecting to the hotel's beach restaurant so you have easy and uninterrupted beach access at your wish.

Downsides are bathrooms that are old and a bit out of touch, building wear and tear due to age, distance from Colombo center.

But overall, this hotel provides wonderful experience for its price as it is comparatively very low. Wish you all will have a wonderful time at this place. ❤️

We had a great stay at this hotel and we carried happy memories.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent and so much variety. Rooms once cleaned had decorative animals made out of towels on most days and we went in each day wondering which animal would greet us. I think Ishan was responsible for making these lovely animals.
Also we were greeted each day by the friendly staff and we came to know Brito who was very helpful at all times.
Another person who was very helpful was Manel - house keeping manager (I think that was her name and title).
Thanks a lot for your service! we enjoyed the stay.

The stay was very comfortable and was reasonable for the price. The room was clean and spacious with basic needs any hotel would provide. The washrooms were also kept clean & tidy. Unfortunately we could hear other guests' noise from the corridor through the washroom windows. The Sunday buffet was priced 2000lkr per head and it was average. Though I would have chosen to go out and get a much better lunch. The range was limited and the food was cold but tasted acceptable. On an overall view, choose to stay their abd find some interesting places close by to find great food variety!
