Negative: Hotel is located directly at the railway line Colombo - Galle with heavy traffic and therefore...

Quaint Hotel near the beach. Good staff. Clean surroundings and good food. This place is very good for a leisure travel. You can loaf around at the hotel and the beach all day. Only downside is this place is pretty far from the Airport
