We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay with them. We had just flew into Colombo airport and the taxi took 1.5 hours and charged 3000 rupees to get here, but it was worth while. The staff were eager to help and always greeted you every time they saw you.
The hotel is situated down a quiet street but close to lots of similar hotels and only 1 block away from the beach at Mount Lavinia, so a good spot to be in. It was less than a 5 minute walk to the beach for dinner every night and very safe.
A metered rickshaw will cost you just over 500 rupees to get into Colombo or if you are on a budget, just get the 100 or 101 bus to Fort train station as we did for 30 rupees each way!
The breakfast was very filling and included fruit, tea or coffee and lot of toast!
Would thoroughly recommend this place and can imagine it being very busy over Dec holidays.
