This property is an oasis within the busy streets of Colombo city. A very short Tuk Tuk ride gets you to Galle Face where you can watch the sunset into the sea.... The hotel is clean and fresh, the staff are so friendly and helpful, and the food is great. You wont need a lunch after their Sri Lankan breakfast!

8/10 Very good

A nice bungalow in central Colombo. Room to sit out on the roof with a drink or a meal. Food was good but not outstanding.

Outstanding
Outstanding. Home from home. If your home is that of James Bond. Or a Rock Star maybe. More staff than guests. Outstanding food. Fabulous cocktails. Helpful staff. An oasis of tranquility. Make sure you do a tuk tuk tour with the irrepressible Samon too.
