Very good service and good value for money. Indian food in srilanka was good. As I am vegetarian so it is difficult to find good food in srilanka. In this case gate way food and service was excellent.

Excellent CX (customer experience) From Check-In to Check-Out. Staff are always willing to deliver a memorable and excellent service.Close to airport and the Free Trade Zone, so ideal for business travellers. Distant from city centre, therefore away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Pasta was dry, fish was over cooked and very hard to chew. Chicken gravy was served cold. I wish I could have ordered Ala carte with one dish...
