We checked out after a few hours, they let us pay for one room and the other room was free (since we checked out without staying there).
Bedlinen & towels was dirty/wet. Toilet room was smelling and not clean. Toilet was not flushing. Outside guests came to use the pool, which made it crowded. It's suppose to be Swedish management, which is hard to belive! Photos are not showing the bad condition of the rooms.
Very good location, a it aside b the Arugam Bay beavh, very quiet. Staff is really helpful, although quite low... Rooms are clean and pretty big, good hotel overall.
Location was great for watching sunsets, nice staff, hassle free check in/out
Rooms are in need of refurbishment. No tv, no internet access, no toiletries provided, lots of mosquitos in room.
I can't think of anything, really.
Lifeless, transient, couldn't wait to leave, overpriced.
Great location - good price
There were so many mosquitoes in my room that the staff sprayed them with fly spray then they had to use a broom to sweep them out there would have been around 60 of them. This is a very very basic hotel we used it only to rest and shower.
Good location right on beach front near airport. Early wakeup call and knock on door for 2am airport trip much appreciated. The kind gentleness of the lady serving meals in the restaurant - I will remember her smile.
Overpriced "hotel taxi" to airport - $20 for 7km. The phone ringing twice in the middle of the night to wake me up at regular intervals - could have been anyone though.
It was close to the sea
The hotel is old, poorly maintained and lacking in facilities. There is no Wifi, or television in rooms. The bed lines and towels were old and of very poor quality For most of our stay the swimming pool was out of use. Breakfast was very limited.
The location was great. Right on the beach.
In terms of value for money, the worst hotel we have stayed in, ever. It wasn't cheap for Sri Lanka, +/- £50 per night. The bathrooms were dirty with mould and brown streaks down the walls. The light fittings looked dangerous with exposed wiring. The beach front reastaurant, misleadingly named Negombo breeze, would have been nice if it didn't have (filthy) glass panels blocking the breeze. There weren't even ceiling fans. The result was a sweat box of a restaurant. A truly awful dining experience. The rooms had ventilation holes in the wall, which rendered the a/c useless. There was also no mosquito net, which meant we were bitten all night. We were supposed to stay two nights here as a relaxing end to our holiday travelling round Sri Lanka, but left after one. The front desk staff offered not a single word of apology when we listed the reasons why we were leaving, even when explaining that we would have to pay 50% of the cost for the 2nd night. Appalling customer service. To sum up, do not stay here!
