I stayed at this hotel as all downtown hotels in Colombo were full or under renovation for the Commonwealth meet in November 2013. I had to wait for 40 mins before I could get my room at 5 PM. The reception area was full and I had to find a seat for myself near the pool side.I was allotted a room with a wonderful view of the lake. The rooms are large and well equipped with necessities like an ironing board. A set of toiletries, bathrobe etc. is provided. The bathrooms are also large with a bathtub and a shower enclosure. They have three restaurants surrounding the pool. I opted to have dinner at the pool side but had to shift to the Thai restaurant after some time because of the stifling humidity outside. The saving grace was the freshly brewed beer that they serve. Breakfast is served at the restaurant at the ground floor level. The spread is very good and you can have a leasurely breakfast, but the place tends to overflow with tourists hence getting a table might take some time. One thing that you will miss at this place is the sea which is a good three kms away. Once you step outside the hotel there are no shops or places of interest nearby and you will require a vehicle to take you around. You can always use the threewheeler taxis waiting outside if you do not want to rent a car.
