The hotel is well located, just off the Colombo - Galle road and adjacent to the railway line in Bentota, and in an extensive garden/park which borders directly on to the Bentota river on one side and access to the long and wide beach on the other side.
The rooms/balconies, with view on to either the river or gardens/beach, are spacious, very clean, but not exactly comfortable. The service is generally very good, personnel very helpful and friendly, buffet restaurant and food is ok ('tourist standard), and lounge with live music / entertainment nice and relaxing - but sometimes with the A/C in overdrive (thought to be for driving guests to bed at night!).
With plenty of sun beds, pool, bar and snack bar, the garden/park is ideal for relaxing, and a fence, with security guards, between the garden/park and beach is cetainly a plus if only wanting peace and quiet - and not being continually pestered by beach boys / vendors. Long walks along the super beach are a must - but not if scared of being continually pestered (where are you from, what's your name, where you staying, what's your room / tel. number, want a ....., etc.).
Opinion: One of the best holiday hotels and beach locations!
