“Average accommodation for the price you pay”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Stayed with my partner. We were provided with a decent sized room that overlooked the ocean and pool area. The hotel and its rooms are old fashioned and in dire need of renovation. The breakfast that was included was buffet style and plentiful. The staff were friendly and helpful. Wifi connection was very slow. It took the hotel over 1/2HR to settle us into our accommodation.

After two weeks in a wonderful guest house in Hikkaduwa (Oriental Rest) we stopped here for the final 3 days. The occupancy was less than 10% but one room took 30 minutes to prepare even though we arrived at 2pm. Internet is not HIGH SPEED as advertised but patchy and when 6 kids logged onto Facebook in the foyer I dropped out. The staff were as lazy as was socially possible and the rooms were clean but 25 years out of date which for £70 a night was disappointing. The menu was equally as tired with half the items unavailable. The baked crab they admitted was from a tin and though they claimed to have real crab it wasn't the recipe. I asked for a curry and rice only to be told it wasn't available either. This is Sri Lanka and they wouldn't make a curry dish on request. I'm leaving early before the memory of this poor event spoils my holiday any more.

I stayed here for 2 days before travelling back to UK. The staff were very helpful, kind and caring towards me whilst I was unwell. I felt very comfortable, the food was quite delicous and plentiful all in all an enjoyable stay

We visited this hotel for the second time last month and can highly recommend it. The management, the receptionists and the staff could not do enough to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The location is absolutely perfect for a lovely, relaxing holiday and with the new highway, getting to Colombo was a real pleasure. We have given it a four star rating because we are saving the 5 for the review after our next visit. The rooms, though large and airy with balconies, need a facelift and this is due to be done during the summer of 2014. The hotel is closing for a few months for a refurbishment and we have seen one of the rooms that has already been done!! Wow! It will be superb and will qualify for a 5+ category! Our thanks to Mr and Mrs Croos who are doing a splendid job. We look forward to having another wonderful break with them!

We stayed here for one night before we left Sri Lanka early the next day. We were really happy with the hotel and it was fine as a one stop place. The staff were helpful and friendly and gave us a breakfast pack at 4am when we checked out. The swimming pool was pleasant with a bar/ restaurant at the side of it. It was directly on the beach as well. The rooms were kind of basic but the beds were comfy and we did sleep well despite the early rise. Would stay there again if I was back in Negombo. It was great value for money.

we stayed here for 2 weeks and found it very nice, little out dated but everything worked,and a clean room. Excellent location directly onto the beach. Many local weddings came here for their photo's because of the background. Normal variety for Breakfast and we ate in the restaurant a couple of nights with no complaint. We used J C Tours for our tours and money exchange, turn left from hotel and across the road. Suresh will look after your every need. Hotel closes in April 2014 for 4 months for total upgrade. Places to eat? Sea view and Honky tonk 2 were v good. Local Indian good, Tuskers excellent, Italian Prego very poor service. Cinnamon tree(silva's) excellent. Bars, it was just getting ready for the season but, Serennibs andTastee's very good but Rodeo's was excellent, always made welcome here. All these places were to the left from the Hotel. Turn right towards Negombo there were a few Restaurants but a little quieter. All in all, an excellent place to holiday, down side, if you want the beach action like Goa then you'll be disappointed, maybe if they do open the excellent beaches up sunbeds and shacks then maybe 10 out of 10, instead of a 9. I would certainly go again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd floor for the views. Our room 309 was on the "curve" of the Hotel so was...

I do not like writing bad reviews. But I'm surprised to see the rating of this hotel. I spent a total of 12 nights here for two workshops. I'm little ashamed because other participants are from countries nearby and they might have think that this is the type of hotels we are having in Sri Lanka. My first room was not so clean, hot water was difficult to get and TV was not working. Second time (I had to go there for the workshop), AC was not working and the floor was not cleaned when I checked in. Then I went there with my family and requested a triple room, which was not ready. The floor is not tiled and dirty looking. There are ugly looking analog TVs high up in the wall. Do not think about a good sleep and relaxing hotel stay (in your room)

Good thing is that reception and management is very good. Sea view is fantastic.

Room Tip: Go to your room check all the items before you settle....
