“Windsor Hotel”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Windsor Hotel was very nice and accommodating. The staff speaks English well and I noticed the staff conversing in German also. The hotel has an excellent menu and food is served in large portions. I recommend any of the available soups on the menu. The rooms are clean. The beds are hard as only thin mattresses are used. The blankets are down filled and very nice considering the temperature at night. The hotel bar is nice and a local attraction. Nearby the hotel are ATMs and shops that sell North Face clothing very cheap. All in all, I would be happy to stay In this hotel again.

Stayed July 2014, travelled with friends

The location of this hotel is good.
we had a triple room which was a good size and we were not all squashed in.
the bathroom had an excellent hot power shower so that alone made this room worth what we paid for it. we paid 5,000 LKR per night in low season
the beds were comfortable and clean and we were supplied with duvets too as it was so cold
wifi was only available in the top floor rooms
the staff were helpful and friendly but some were a little more reserved than we have been used to in Sri Lanka
The local mosque was audiable but was not loud enough to wake us in the mornings - our room was at the back of the hotel
The manager was a very friendly chap

The hotel needs to be upgraded the location is good. Food was not great rooms very bad condition and the bath rooms are not clean. We booked for two nights but only stayed for one night.

Staff was ok but the hotel looked haunted and we were the only guest in the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms are Average and the curtains are bad in the room so you et direct sunlight to the room very ea...

This is a hotel is located at convenient location with very friendly and helpful staff and large clean rooms.

If you are looking for a view then this is not the hotel, i didnt mind as i was there on work, and the location was excellent as it was place right in the middle of the city.

But please keep in mind that there are no heaters in the rooms.

Very large room with two single beds pushed together to make a double, two bedside tables and lamps, circular occasional table with two chairs, big wall mirror, suitcase rack, luggage stand, wardrobe. Bathroom has shower area but no bath. Wooden parquet flooring. Free wi-fi in room and very small flat-screen tv on wall, but no fridge. Highly polished wooden floor.
Friendly staff.
Breakfast is fruit, omelette and bacon, toast and coffee, not buffet.
Close to centre of town, but with ample car-parking.

The best thing about this place is the friendly and professional staff, including check-in counter, bell serive, door man, restaurant staff and location, location , location. The hotel is close to the town centre.
The decoration of the dining hall was pretty.The rooms are old and not super good, but they provide the basic comfort. The toilet didnt work the night we stayed at the hotel

Restaurant was ok, a big over-priced.
Two things to complain though. First, I stayed in a double room with a high bed. The bed has a bar supporting in the centre under the mattres, but this bar was too hard compared to other part of the mattrees without support. I had terrible backpain after the night. Second, my family stayed in another room (3 bed room) and there was no hot water shower (instead, my room has very good hot water provided). Check out the bed and the hot water when you check in.
