The Hotel isn't on the beach although the photos suggest the same. There is a busy road in front of the hotel and crossing that one has to again cross double line Railway tracks to get to Wellawatta Beach. Make sure you look both sides before crossing, trains are frequent going both ways. There are beautiful beaches in Sri Lanka but this isn't one of them. Quite trashy with fishing huts around. This is an apartment hotel so I thought there would be lots of space. Quite on the contrary. The rooms are tiny and the bathroom is tiny too but everything works and generally well maintained, at least the one in my room was! The amenities are lacking, no tea/coffee maker in the room, not even a pedestal to put your suitcase and bags, its that tiny. I had to leave the suitcase on the floor and use it. The TV is an old set with perhaps 3 channels working and barring one, all snowy images. Your only source of English news would be CCTV China International. Ho hum. Trains go both ways all day long and that's kind of noisy especially when they blare their horns. Night time is peaceful though. The buffet breakfast is separately paid and a rip off. Nearly $10 and I was wiser the next day to walk through a narrow lane to get to Galle Road (takes 5-6 mins of walking only) and found an excellent local place where I could eat to my hearts content and shell out like $3 bucks. I paid a $100 per night including taxes and that's too much but the Government controls pricing I was told. I relocated after 2 days to Renuka Hotel on Galle Road for the same rate but far better amenities and better location. The view of the Indian Ocean is perhaps the best thing that this hotel has, going for it. The staff were very friendly and accommodative and that's perhaps the only reason I didn't check out the very first day.
