    The staff in the ecl were just so fantastic, we really enjoyed the Library and the breakfast was also very enjoyable

    The food was good in the dinning room...

    The hotel is old there was mold on the walls ....the hotel staff are not very friendly and work was done so it was so loud all day long..... Bed is old and for sure it did not look like a five stars hotel.... not recommended hotel.....

    The bands playing music at the lobby level were ok. Front office department and in particular the Reception Desk are the worst I have ever encountered in my whole life and I am not exaggerating. My experience has been extremely bad including the service with the food and beverage department.

    Service was extremely poor.

  • Family with children

    Nice ambience, great staff, plenty of in-hotel dining options. Throughly recommended!

  • Single
    4.4

    Not much - subpar for a 5-star hotel.

    Below international standards - poor service, construction noise, orders for drinks never came - one of the worst luxury experiences I've had. Just passing themselves off. Don't stay here.

  • Family with children

    noise from construction and outside casino music

  • Family with children

    Very good polite and courteous staff, prompt response on any complaints, very nice breakfast (excluding juices as only pineapple juice available one morning was good), nice rennovated room and very good room comfort. We were upgraded to a lakeview deluxe room since we requested a king size bed in the room which was not available in city view room. Room service is very nice with prompt service, nice menu and very delicious food (we ordered Indian food) at a reasonable price. We ordered room service both nights of our stay since the kids were very tired

    We stayed for two nights. 1St night - Extreme discomfort in sleeping because there was a party at pool side and very loud drumming and then very loud singing and hotel staff could not do anything. They should not allow these types of parties in the hotel making loud noises because the guests cannot sleep then. Morning, both days, only warm water in washroom. No hot water available even requests were made but they could not figure out why. My kids suffered a lot due to this. Lobby is extremely busy and hard to find any space to sit in the evening. There was some problem with the baby cot as my daughter got some severe insect bite marks on her both hands after sleeping in the cot

    The food was very good, it wasn't included in our package, but we did enjoy the breakfast, launch and dinner a lot...

    1. We requested for the room with a balcony, cuz we are smokers, but the room that they offered us was very small and balcony had a view to a dirty roof and everywhere was a smell of food... 2. The electricity in the hotel was shutting down every day 3-4 times and one time i was drying my hair with my hairdryer and the electricity got off and on suddenly and my hair dryer got broken... Good that I didn't get an electric shock! i need to buy a new hairdryer... :(((( When I called the hotel stuff to tell them about my incident, they were very polite but useless.. all they kept saying that this is Sri Lanka and it's normal and the person told me to be more careful next time and dry my hair quickly!!!!! 3. Our room and bedsheets had bad smell all the time 4. Everyone please be aware of the hidden costs, the taxes are 27% on everything, we paid 30% more than we planned... And please check before paying the bill, as they've included 3-4 items which we didn't order... After pointing out, they had to revise the bill!!!

    Nice clean hotel with plenty of restaurants and pleasant seating areas both inside and out. Nice pool facility and bar for relaxing

    No place for people who have checked out to clean up (wash or shower) prior to an evening flight. Currently under renovation whcih makes the hotel a little noisy during the day. This was not notified prior to booking.

    They had a reasonable stock of wine which was difficult to find anywhere else in Colombo. They also had an outdoor tapas bar by the lake which was refreshing after having had quite a lot of rice and curry.

    It is very large and slightly impersonal.

    A fabulous hotel with a massive swimming pool, gym , and 3 wonderful restaurants . Good location , excellent executive lounge .very friendly staff,..a wonderful place

    You have to be cautious about the billing. They charge the rent in USDollars at a higher rate. If you are not careful , you will end up paying more than what you should pay. The bill is converted in the local currency at a higher rate and you are always charged higher. i insisted on a dollar bill and only paid what is legitimate. A real disgrace to an otherwise wonderful property .Hope the management changes this unethical policy

    Great service, but there was a huge charge to check in early even though the room was ready. I would have thought this would be complimentary considering the cost al ready paid per night.

    The pool, the high tea spread, the bakery, the location, the staff, the toiletries and the room per say were good. A nice business hotel to stay for a day or two as you visit the city. Very close to some good restaurants like Ministry of Crab and wtc and a small odel outlet. A little far from the main shopping area but you get hotel taxis and tuk tuks very easily

    Our room toilet had a stink of the drainage which did bother us..rest it was a good stay
