We stayed three nights for a friend's wedding in a Premium room. The rooms were spacious, the curtains excellent at blocking out the morning light, the breakfast buffet was massive, and the staff very friendly (although they seemed to assume men are more important than women). The location was central to the attractions we wanted to see (although walking is not a lot of fun in Colombo).
Like most things in Sri Lanka, not everything was perfect. Check in and check out both took longer than should be necessary, our airport transfer was forgotten/dropped from our booking but we had no problem getting a car when we checked out. Housekeeping was a little unreliable (eg we asked after missing face cloths and they cheerfully brought us bottles of water). But these were just minor issues and overall we had a very pleasant stay.
