This is a fully renovated and refurbished hotel (pool under construction but will be ready in a couple of weeks). We stayed only for one night but could be a great place to stay some days longer. Great welcome and a fabulous reception area with comfortable chairs. The room was perfect with a great sea view. Large and with free Wifi. Great customer service and the staff were all very friendly and contributed to a warm experience. This hotel is very well located. You have the sea, the beach, the Dutch hospital with a lot of restaurants and some shops.
In the hotel there is an excellent choice of restaurants. The Chinese restaurant was not open but the fish restaurant was a very good alternative. There was such a variety of fresh fish that it was difficult to choose. The quality and the service in the restaurant was more than excellent, it was perfect. And the chef made a wonderful meal. Highly recommended for Colombo.
Overall a great experience.
