It was the first hotel in Sri Lanka were we stayed and everything was great specially the breakfast. Camelot beach Hotel were very well located-next to the beach. We had many nice dinners on there, Negombo was special about the beach restaurant area.

Nice location next to beach. Nice rooms. Very good breakfast. Traditional massage in the hotel is worth going for. The lady who did the massage did a fantastic job. Morning walk in the beach is very refreshing. Hotel is fully booked during tourist season jan- mar. Better to book well in advance.

Its all that you need for a few nights. True its a bit tired and threadbare but we could happily have stayed longer than our two night stay at the start of our holiday. If all you want is a beach location the outdoor facilities rate 5 stars...way above the standard of the hotel buildings. It was great to have good A/C, tea and coffee facilities. The room was clean but tired...the bed firm but comfortable. The resaurant was ok for one dinner but wouldn't choose it over the many resaurants on the coast road which comes alive at night. Breakfast buffet was average but a real treat to get fish curry for breakfast !!

One word of CAUTION....the lift doors sometimes close before everyone can get in or out and if you are frail or very young watch out !!!..they exert quite a bit of pressure before realising you are there.

Room Tip: We think inside the main building is best...cooler, quieter (lots of noisy crows around) Only downs...

We went to this hotel at the start of a tour of Sri Lanka. It was conveniently close to the airport, and was only about a half hour trip, so we could chill after the flight. The hotel appeared a bit run down, but the staff who were very attentive and helpful made up for the shortcomings. The room overlooked the garden and pool, and although could have done with a major facelift, was OK for one night. The food was good. It was not a hotel I would have wanted to spend my holiday in, but was convenient for the airport and very close to the sea.

We stayed here over new year and had a great time. Only 25 minutes from the airport. Negombo town has plenty of bars and restaurants and is quite lively.
The rooms were clean and spacious with nice sea/pool views. The staff were friendly and helpful.
There was a well stocked bar, breakfast buffet was excellent as was the new year gala dinner.
Highly recommend.

We ware there just to spend the day with my family and friends. So my review EXcludes hotel rooms and room services.

I'd give 10 stars for the location. The beach and the sea is right IN-FRONT. Difficult to make the decision on whether go to the sea or stay in the pool, Great setting.

Child friendly atmosphere, baby/ Kids pool available. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The changing rooms are spacious and the land was well maintained.

The hotel is lack of large parking space (10-15 slots max). But the security personnel helped us to squeeze our car in to tight parking slot.The buffet lunch was limited. But many Sri Lankan cuisines ware included. Once again the sun set, the beach and the pool are unforgettable.

We spend the last day of our three weeks in Sri Lanka here, and honestly: We had a wonderful day reading and resting in the shadows by the pool and taking a last swim in the ocean. The location is splendid, right on the fine beach. The hotel itself though is a bit run-down. The aircon in our room was defect and made a terrible noise. It all reminded us of a budget-offer on Costa del Sol, including sunburnt pacage-tourists. And the breakfast is horrible! But then again, the service was very good, and we felt welcome. What to say? A good spot to land for your first night after a long flight - og last night before going home. Northing more.
