You could put a minus for the hotel for the railway that runs near the fence, but I think it's not a hotel problem. Notice that the trains are not running at night. The last train leaves at 10 pm, the first trian goes at 6-7 am. The railway line is laid over the west coast of Sri Lanka and if the tourist wants to stay in a hotel located near the shoreline, he must put up with the trains. If you don't want - you can rent another hotel, away from the sea, close to the main road. Then you have to put up with the gas content and high density of vehicles that are constantly honking to each other.
Price is good
* It is not very clean * The roomis very poor *No hot water * Could not sleeo all night from the train
The price was great for the location.
Saturday night the club has music until 4 am.
i do not recommend this hotel at all !! I really have know idea how it's classified as three star beach resort !! 1-the reality that it should be one star not three star ,the room had literally nothing ,the washroom was horrible that there was no way for me to have a shower 2-it's not a beach resort !! It's next to the beach but not on the beach !! To reach the beach you have to get out of the hotel then walk for 50 mtr to reach the beach
Location , if you want to enjoy beach, otherwise its far from colombo city's other attraction.
Bad bathrooms, not so clean at all. But certain renovation taking place for improvements.
Its calm and nice location, but not comfortable rooms and clean bath rooms. Nor hot water.
The conditon of the Room and bathroom.
the staff were friendly
the railway line is 20 yards from the rooms.the trains stop at midnight but start again at around 6am.when a train goes past which is often the room shakes.this was not mentioned when i booked the room.also there is a disco which on one occasion didn't finish til midnight.if you want a decent nights sleep then i wouldn't stay at this hotel.
Close to the sea and to Colombo
Old building and furniture, rail ways near the hotel and they go every 15 mins - very noisy and you can't sleep, no tv while it is in room description.
The hotel was fairly cheap, located close to the beach, friendly staff, basic breakfast, but Sufficient and nicely served
Although the hotel was fairly cheap, bear in mind extra 10% of service charge and 15% of VAT charge to the bill. Although located on the beach, there is a railway track in between through which you need to walk to get to the beach
They had free wifi at the reception area. There is also a nice large garden outside which was good for our 3-year-old daughter to run around in. Its location was good but we had to cross the railtrack each time to get to the other side where the beach was.
It is definitely not a 3-star, nor would I call it a resort. It's more 1 or 2-star max. It's just next to the railtrack and you won't get a decent night sleep unless your room is at the other end furthest away. They messed up our 1st night booking (booked later, directly with the hotel). We were given a terrible room with dirty aircon & cold shower. On the following 2 nights, we were given the "correct room" (booked via Booked.net) which was slightly better. But the sink tap was broke, we were given "blankets" which are actually bed sheets and the towels are like sandpaper (that's how my husband call it). Our 3rd night there, our room door knob didn't work and we were locked in from inside & couldn't get out of our room!
Service staff is very friendly=)
Near hotel is a railway.
Very close to the beach. Sea view rooms. Air conditioner and low price. Extremely friendly and helpful staff.
Very close to the reilways. Usually I don't care, but in this case the noise is so loud that it sounds like thains go throught your room. It was the first time I had problems with sleeping in my life. This hotel is not 3 stars of course. 1 or 2 may be. Nobody cleaned our room during 5 days stay. The building is quite old also.
The public areas of this hotel are clean and well maintained however the bedroom was extremely tatty and not very clean. You are provided with only one towel, no mossie net and only one mossie coil provided for the duration of your stay so a great place for hungry mosquitos but not so good for the guest ! Much cleaner and better value places in the immediate area...I Won`t be returning.
the staff were helpful, courteous and friendly.
very, very basic. loud noise from nearby disco, through the night till 8 am- terrible but not ranvelis fault.
It is closer to seaside
There is no proper food for vegetarians. Though the location is good and near by seaside, but it is far away from city.
