A room by the sea

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 6, 2007

I stayed here on a business trip and was completely wowed by the location of the hotel. You can hear the waves crashing from your window.

I did not particularly like the room I was given, however, I am told by colleagues who stayed here that the other rooms were very pretty, with all modern amenities.

If you are staying in the governer's wing, then be ready to wait for min. 15 mins for any service as all the departments are housed in the new wing.

The hotel is ideal for a vacation, however, I would not recommend staying in the governer's wing if you are going for business because of the delayed service.

Unique Quality: The hotel has a restaurant called the governer's restaurant overlooking the sea which is an old colonial structure with similar decor. I only had breakfast there, which was not that great, but the view is spectacular.

A delight for Package Tourists

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 30, 2005

The hotel is used by several package tour operators, including Kuoni, and it is designed to cater for those clients, and it does it well. There is hardly anyone to breakfast before sun up. there are no internet connections to the rooms, but who needs internet connections on holiday? You get a real tast of colonial life in this hotel, but watch out for the exchange rates. There is one rate to convert your quoted dollar rate to rupees and another (lower) rate to convert your hard earned cash into rupees.

Unique Quality: The Sea cove restaurant was excellent. Pick you own seafood and have it cooked deliciously.

Directions: 10 km south of the city centre right on the beach

A great place not very far from Colombo. It was the former residential house of the British Governor and you even see Colombos skyline and the beach.

Unique Quality: Excellent service, good food (several restaurants including one for seafood), pool, nice privat beach, nice rooms, etc.

Directions: Mount Lavinia, south of Colombo
