    Very friendly staff and very clean rooms. We ordered a third bed for our son - everything was ready prepared at our arrival, which we liked. Great hotel if you have a flight the next morning as it is 5 min from the airport.

    Jusdinner and breakfastt one night beore our flight. So swimming pool, dinner and breakfast. The staff was very nice, the shuttle for airport very useful, the swimming pool is perfect for a family (swimming in a large pool for parents, small bath for children) and the diner was good in a pleasnt dining-room.Goob business centre and gallery for shopping.

    had enjoyed our stay, room was great...clean,modern furniture and comfortable...complimentary airport transfers are great with prompt timing.... dinner buffet and breakfast buffet was great and tasty..., hotel's outlet (i.e gift shop, salon) along the corridor could use some re-furbished for a better look considering its location on guest area...Overall, we had enjoyed our stay and wish can return back to experience and thank you for your hospitality

    only had minor problem with the hot water pressure from the shower which was not strong enough to enjoy especially after long flight....hotel's sauna room has big roaches inside, seemed like hasnt been used for quite sometimes...Overall, we had enjoyed our stay and wish can return back to experience and thank you for your hospitality

    I stayed on night in this hotel, as I was on transit in Colombo but I really liked it. The hotel Staff was very helpful and friendly, they looked professional and they were smiling all the time.

    Superb

    It was convenient to the airport

    I booked through Booked.net and it included a shuttle service to the airport but when we get there the hotel wanted 800 rupees for the shuttle. We raised that it was supposed to be complimentary and the reception staff said come back after dinner and we will see...not sure what difference dinner would make. I thought the charge was because they no longer provided the service. When the driver arrived in the morning it was in a hotel car with the hotel logo. To make it worse when we were dropped at the airport the driver did not have 200 rupees change and expected the 1000 note.It was a fixed fee - how could he not have change? Tarnished the whole experience. Only airport hotel in the world that does not provide a complimentary airport shuttle.

    Superb

    Just returned from an overnight stay at the Gateway Hotel and had a wonderful experience. Although not overly luxurious it is a comfortable, clean and friendly hotel with good amenities (airport transfer, shops, dining, pool, spa). From the point of airport transfer right through my 24 hours stay the hotel staff could not do enough for me. They made the experience a very personal one using my name througout the day, escorting me to my room, putting british magazines into the room and offering to give me a glimpse of a Sri Lankan wedding that was taking place there that evening. The evening dining was a pleasant one with light live music, good food and personal service by the Chef and Food and beverage manager. I also arrived with my Sri Lankan maid (before her returning to her home village) and even though she was a local they welcomed her at reception in the same manner as myself with hot towels and refreshment and with due respect. My husband and I are returning to Sri Lanka next year and would definately stay at this hotel at least some of our time as a base for our further travelling.

    Superb

    By far the best service from a 5 star hotel in Srilanka. The "never say no to a guest" was truly incorporated to the service concept of the property.

    F&B pricing was a bit too much.
