Paid 1000 rupees each day for a sunbed at the beach. Plastic beds nearly all broken somewhere on the frame. Mattresses were flat or ripped and torn. Could use the pool which wasn't bad and the pool and beach attendant did his best for us. Glad we were not staying at this hotel.

The hotel looks impressive from the entrance but once you get upstairs it becomes obvious that the place is run down and needs renovation. The phone, TV, a/c and Internet either didn't work or were useless. I asked 3 times for something to be done about the TV, they came 3 times played with the remote but did nothing. I...

Simply horrible experience from the reception staff to the appalling low budget room. Our accomodation was filthy and most of the equipment didn't work. It was a scary experience which I was not prepared for as our room had been booked by a tour group as the beginning of a 10 day tour of Sri Lanka. Thankfully our other accomodation...

Our recent trip started with a nights accommodation at this tired & uninhabitable hotel. The initial check in process was pleasant & we settled into the beach for a while as we waited for our room to be refreshed from the prior guest. On arriving into the room we were shocked to discover accommodation which was really unacceptable to even...

Had read poor reviews but since this hotel was selected by our travel agent and was only for a night, we decided to brave it out. Yes, the maintenance is poor and much more needs and can be done . Surprisingly, the hotel was full, probably because of its proximity to the beach and a very inviting pool. The breakfast...

We stayed here on the night of the 28th of December. Since then we have stayed in a range of places. We thought the hotel was bad but it has become worse since we have seen what Sri Lanka has to offer. Some of our personal reflections have been: worse than basic; horrible; disgusting, just revolting and a rip-off. Why?...

To start off, my driver could not see the name of this hotel when we arrived in the night. It's as if the hotel is ashamed to announce its name. It did look promising on the outside though, so i was not expecting the many problems ahead. My wife and i were given a room where the hot water taps...

Do not stay here. This hotel is terrible. I had a filthy room with windows looking right out onto the main pathway so I could never have the blinds open. It gets worse. Firstly, the power would not work in my room as the main switch gadget was broken. Reception promised to fix it as I met the group for...

I stayed at this hotel prior to joining a tour group. Air conditioning did not work. Very noisy. Pool area not good. Just kind of a junky feeling all around. I stayed at the Camelot Beach Hotel for 3 nights prior to coming here and it was head and shoulders above this place. Gold Star price should have been half...
