A good value for a quiet air conditioned room, there's some good flat spots near the hotel on this miles long beach. I like seeing the little shrines on the roadside, a very nice one with seating nearby the hotel, its a bit far out of town but the airport has a desk just before the exit where you can get a prepaid taxi, 1800 rupees-$ 10, very clean hotel, friendly staff

We stayed here a few nights after the long flight to Sri Lanka. It's a quiet place to relax and accommodate to the time zone and climate. Stuff is very friendly and helpful - they were very nice to our children. Food is ok. Currently, this hotel is extended - that's why there is on-going some construction work - but to be honest it didn't bother us. Room are dated but very clean (as everything there). Bathroom could be larger - especially for families. New fly screens would be good.

Little bit distanced from city center, but if you want to skip crowded area Ziegler is wonderful choice. I spent very nice and relaxed times when I just reached in Sri Lanka and before leave to airport. Nice, clean and specious environment. Friendly staff gave me useful informations. Food was very tasty, internet was nice!

We stayed here for 2 nights with our 6 month baby whilst we recovered from the flight and started our travels around Sri Lanka. The staff were really friendly and helpful, the food was fantastic breakfast was good and the curry amazing, as were the other dishes we had throughout our stay. The pool and garden area is extremely clean and pool a good size, the hermit crabs are very funny! The beach is just out the back of the property, you cannot swim at the beach but it's lovely to listen too and to watch the sunset. The fact that it is only 30mins from the airport is a big positive. The only negative we would say to this property is the mattresses are slightly uncomfortable.
