The cleanliness level was very bad and the staff knocks the door for tips on every single thing they do for you
Location of the hotel. Garden was wonderful. Snack/Pool Bar staff were great
The room (702) was not particularly clean . No attention to detail eg. Drawers were not cleaned properly so clothes came dusty and dirty. They did not fit properly and had mites in them. Bathroom was in serious need of refurbishment with mould in many places and limescale all over the glass.
Great design, lots of sunbeds dotted around the gardens. Great evening buffet. 2 mins from the beach
Nothing to do with the hotel but the beach has sand flies!! Very annoying and itchy.
very nice hotel. wonderful experience. Good swimming pool, very nature lawn, famous beach is at left hand and river sports centre at the right hand. Definitely i will come again.
The check in is very slow. The reception will ask me to sign a lot of documents. Also the check out is very slow.
We had two spacious rooms side by side on the second floor with a view to the garden and the pool area which was great. Our beds where big and comfortable. The buffet breakfast was just perfect, one of the best we had in Sri Lanka. The garden was huge and the beach was in less than 5 minutes walking distance. I wanted to extend my stay but I didn't have more days to spend now.
Nothing... really ... but one comment though. If you have a bad or wounded leg or having trouble with walking then you should ask for a room close to the reception because some of the rooms do have incredible long walking distance.
Hotel out side Swiming pool and garden
The room is very bad and very old furniture and is very expansive if you see other hotel is better
Comfortable room with a view and a/c. Large gardens with relaxing views. Expansive uncrowded sandy beach. Wide variety of buffet food available. Friendly and easy check-in and check-out. Short walk to many small shops, restaurants and bars.
This is probably the best hotel in the whole island for boring couples and families trying to soak up some sun and salty air in a quiet place where they get pampered but pay quite reasonable money. Great beach, great grassy lawn all around, sport facilities, nice pool, attentive staff... The cooking in the restaurant below the dining mess hall, and also the room service cooking, are far superior in quality to, and just as affordable as, the generic lunches and dinners in the dining hall.
Check the minibar tiny fridge in the room when you arrive, and then every time they pretend to stock it, because it may turn out in the end that "the crisps are opened" and a few bottles have "loose caps" as in "you obviously drank this vile-looking local soda and then filled the tiny bottles up again, you rascal you :)". It won't cost too much, but annoying nevertheless.
The buffet food was amazing and the chefs that came out of the kitchen to talk to guests were just lovely. The grounds and gardens and pool and beach were exceptional.
The staff at reception had no clue about the area, transportation, tourist attractions, or the hotel it self. It was one of architect Geoffrey Bawa,s most significant buildings. Sri Lanka,s most important architect and modern contributor to the arts. He designed parliament house not to mention many other important building all over Sri Lanka. They didn't even know who he was. They knew nothing of local and interesting tourist attractions and had no clue on how to get to them, When I asked how I could get to the airport in the morning I was told to go outside and find a taxi ( at 6am) as the hotel taxi would be more expensive and it would take 3 and a half to 4 hours to get there?, then I was told 2 to 2 and a half hours by other person and then one and a half hours by another person. At 6 am when I went to "find a taxi" there were none available?? It takes one and a half to 2 hours on the NEW expressway to get to the airport from the Hotel. Maybe your staff should ALL know this. Also the bathrooms are all very very unclean. I understand the building is old, but a simple clean with bleach especially in all the showers is a very easy way to properly get rid of all the mould and soup scum all over the shower. They need to be cleaned properly. It is not acceptable to have mould all over bathrooms with dirty shower screens.
Excellent value for money, gorgeous pool and stunning gardens, friendly staff and great access to a great beach.
Bathroom in need of a deep clean but otherwise fine.
Nice pool area, big rooms, friendly staff, good buffet
rooms are not proper clean (specially in bathroom)
Beautiful clean beach. Friendly staff who really do try their very best to accommodate all requests and they succeed in doing so.
Internet connection is a little spotty at times. And the TV screen can get quite grainy which is annoying if you're trying to watch a movie and can't see very much.
The beach, the pool, the rooms, the open garden spaces, the food, the staff, the weather.
1. Serious mosquito situation, might benefit from nets on windows 2. The low rumble of the hotel bar's bass continues well into the night
Such an amazing experience! We were Group of 5 Irish girls. Got an amazing offer and honestly felt like we hit the jackpot! Felt like a 5* hotel. The staff were amazing,really nice and treated us as though we were their friends!They even came to wish us off in the taxi! Deepal at reception was so helpful and Bala the pool assistant couldn't have been friendlier! The location was perfect as it was right by the beach, so we could have the best of both worlds switching between pool and beach! GOT so many amazing photos, monkeys and puppies on the beach! There isn't much nightlife in Bentota, but it's the kind of hotel that you don't need to as enjoying the luxury and the views is better off it hour a hangover! We bought a bottle of wine one evening and sat on the beach which was nice. The rooms are beautiful with lovely views and spacious beds. its close to water sport facilities. Could not recommended it more!!!
The breakfast buffet is too expensive, 1,500 which works out as 10 euro. sounds cheap but too expensive for Sri Lanka. It's cheaper to order room service surprisingly! Food is lovely all the same!
Beautiful landscaping; easy access to train station, beach, river; lots of activities to enjoy; room was spacious and comfortable;
wifi a bit slow in my ground floor room.
The location, facilities, pool and food.
the reception staff need to be changed. The attitude is completely un professional beside the don't understand the basics of good hospitality.
Nice place, good location. Very comfortable place.
We had a 60 % off deal, and was very pleased. Overpriced without an off deal!
The staff were outstanding. We arrived at 6 am and the staff were able to find a room for us even though check-in was not until 2pm. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Excellent food and a nice relaxing bar.
Wash room is very small
The staff. Very nice and helpful and friendly. Our bedroom was nice. Breakfast and lunch was nice.
The toilet was awful. I paid a 100000 Rs through Bookings.com and I feel cheated as I don't think I got anything of value anywhere close to that amount. We had some Arab guests who harrassed us the whole Sunday and it truly spoiled our day. Management said they couldn't do anything about it unless they physically harassed us! I spent so much money to spend the afternoon being afraid to come out of my room. Dinner could be improved. The desserts for every meal could be very much improved.
Big room that opened to a fairly nice garden area with what looked like a fun pool (it was raining during our stay and they were cleaning it).
Buffet is only thing to eat, the people staying are unfriendly and the staff are not personable. Also there are rules when leaving the compound to go to the beach. Also Bentota is a terrible town to visit if you want to leave the hotel at any point- dirty, loud, rude people and not traveler friendly!
Location of the hotel is great as it borders a beautiful beach and the river. Also the property looks great externally.
Room walls had cobwebs & dust, even the room phone had not been cleaned. Sheets & pillow covers had stains. Washbasin in bathroom was blocked and did not have a cover. Basically a run down hotel room. Don't look at the mattresses, you will run away.
Really this hotel is more than excellent
We loved everything about this hotel and wish we'd stayed longer than our two planned nights. Beautiful, large gardens for those who don't particularly like the sand but also a lovely beach.
The only thing we would fault is that the breakfast foods were barely warm. However, we did find the same fault with the other 4 hotels we stayed in in Sri Lanka so maybe this is normal. It did not spoil our stay but thought it worth mentioning.
