Fabulous 8.6 From 26 reviews

Very good 8.0
Great hotel in a very popular area, slightly off the main bars and restaurant area. Big and comfortable rooms overlooking pool and sea. Great, friendly service.

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent what more can I say!
We chose this hotel as our little bit of luxury during a 3 week tour round Sri Lanka & we were not disappointed. The hotel is only 11 months old so everything is relatively new & clean. The staff were excellent and really went out of their way to make our stay good. Would thoroughly recommend staying here.
JACQUELINE, gb6 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
We did not get tired of the view
This is a stunning waterfront hotel, from the moment we arrived to the sadness when we were leaving it was magnificent throughout. Friendly staff were accommodating for any request, everything was in great condition and perfect. The hotel is nestled at the end of the narrow Yaddehimulla Road with uninterrupted westerly sea views. The sunsets over the Indian Ocean each day were spectacular as the ocean swell crashed over the rocks just past the end of the pool deck. The pictures don't lie!

Exceptional 10.0
Wonderful stay! Beautiful views, amazing food. The staff was incredible and very friendly. Highly recommend staying there.
Breanna, as2 night trip
Good 6.0
Bit disappointed.
We thought we had booked a room with a little bit of space but unfortunately we were told that the balcony was the sitting area. Also we were not happy about the work that was going on right by the pool. Having complained they did stop working but we did continue to look at the concrete and scaffolding all week. Shame, as it’s a lovely small hotel, away from the busy area and the staff including Menzies are really nice.
