5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

I have visited saffron beach hotel so frequently and its a most beautiful and calm and quiet place where anyone can enjoy the day without any hesitate.The food was excellent and the management is well organized ,waiters are very kind and efficient .we had a nice time there.Till the midnight the restaurant was open and we really had a fun time with our friends .Food was excellent and the lady manager look after us very nicely.We stayed there one month and never felt like coming out from the hotel as we enjoyed every bit of it.Mid night me and my boy friend enjoyed the night walking in the beach and most of the days we enjoyed the sri lankan cultural shows ,weddings and parties.Its gave us a real picture of sri lanka.Therefore i would recommended saffron beach hotel for anyone who is looking to spent romantic nights and for the family tours and the people who are individuals looking for a place to relax.we spent little budget and got more value out of our money,Thanks for all the staff and management.Looking forward to come next month. lila and gam

Room Tip: we stayed in a cottage near to the beach.Room was very quiet, clean and tidy ,large space to keep ou...

We went there for a relaxing day out and was turn out to be a heavily crowded, poorly organized place.

The location is quite good in terms of next to a clean beach and beautiful, romantic sunset in the late evening (Yeah except for few cats running around the hotel). Some roofing sheets were loosened and can be flown away by the wind. So for the sake of guests safety they should fix the roof.

Food was fairly OK but the buffet was very bad cos there was very little food variations to choose. People had lunch late had no chance to select food at all.

I should say that the minor staff members were doing their best to serve their guests needs. But unfortunately the hotel management have poorly organized the place and very badly coordinated. The management just incapable of handling reservations, the crowd, tables or their own kitchen and their internal communication was below zero.

Room Tip: Better avoid Sundays.

i have gone to this place for lunch out with my family, Place was kind of crowded and buffet was very bad. They did have just couple of food variations and food does not tasty also. I would say I'm not recommending for anyone for day out. we have ordered hot buttered cuttlefish for bits and i would its really good. But if you are searching for a cheap place to hang out with friends and have a drink this is alright.

We booked the hotel for a company function by paying an advance payment even before one month prior to the event date. Yet they have taken another booking on the same date on top of our reservation. And they inform us to either cancel our trip or postpone the date as they were eager only on cash and not service. the service rendered from owner it self (Which i happened to contact) was not helpful at all. We are glad we didn't go there as even if you go, the service is will be poor as hell. Money minded only would not recommend at all.I'm sure by looking at the review's these people do this type of things as a habit and does not care about the customers other than money.

6 of us went on a day outing to Saffron Hotel located right in the vicinity of the Wadduwa Railway Station... As we entered we could realise that the hotel was under major landscaping and some workers were all around the hotel.. We got an A/C room which was really spacious and clean and it had a small fridge too... The hotel staff were very attentive to what we needed.. Since they were not expecting many people to come in during the renovation, they did not have soaps inside the bathrooms but as soon was told them they provided us with some asap... the hotel pool is quite small but was very very clean indeed.. food was decently priced and was tasty as well.. And the beach there had something to offer as well.. So overall we enjoyed the outing at this place very much, I would definitely come back to this place once the hotel is fully built and serviced!

Room Tip: Get the A/C room closest to the pool, it is pretty big and has a table in front in case you wanted t...

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. We had made a booking for our company staff get together. We had also made an advance payment for this event. When one of the staff members contacted the hotel to discuss some arrangements( as I was unable to contact the hotel directly at that moment), she was told that they had another group of 200 people coming and we had been shoved off to some other part of the hotel and we had to be sectioned off.

This other booking had happened a few days earlier and me being the person who was handling it from the beginning was not informed by email or by mobile phone. Everything was corresponded over email but this was not bought to my attention.

There after they assured us the advance payment will be deposited the next day and till now, we have not received the payment nor heard a reply and the management refuse to answer me when I call or respond to my emails. I believe they only have interest in one thing and that it to take their guest's money. They were clearly overwhelmed by the other larger group booking and failed to provide us with any kind of feedback or any kind of hospitality.

Customer care is very important and personally having worked at a 5 star hotel in Colombo, Im well aware of how guests should be treated. This was by far the worst hotel management I have dealt with. Clueless, rude and greedy for large groups of guests and not attending to any small groups of guests that would like to have an outing or stay at this hotel!!!!!

Awful from the moment we 'checked in' .....Service was begrudgingly inept from mgmt , shown our room by the beach......dirty ,musty smelling room , overhead fan missing (bare wires from roof),windows facing beach nailed shut , took 2 hours to get any towels, termite infestation in room .... Food was ok , saving grace was the Sri Lankan wedding in the garden that evening that gave us a glimpse in local .culture ... Moved out next morning and forgot about other nights paid ..
The area is really a Locals area not for Tourists . Nice quaint railway station close by ...
All in all , do not think about this place ever !!!

Room Tip: Find another beach much further down the Coast ....
