I stayed here 1 night with my friend. I checked in 1 hour earlier than the standard time and checked out 2 hours later. Both the receptionist guy and the cashier sweetie are very friendly and helpful. Hotel and the Room was very clean and enough space. Bathroom was clean too. The swimming pool was very nice with a temperature and just 4 feets. Breakfast served at the floor no 03 was with a small selection but filling. Food was tasty. The restaurant staff are very friendly too. The house is located in the center where it’s convenient for supermarkets, hospital and a high number of restaurants especially vegetarian. This place is very accessible for all travelers like the bus stops are near and running busses all the time. And the house just need some maintenance. Overall the house was very convenient . I loved the stay here . Thank you hotel sapphire team. Hope for another visit. Thank you very much both the receptionist guy and the cashier sweetie.
We stayed here ond night as our tour was departing from this location. Our room was old, dirty and smelt bad. The bathroom was disgusting and it looked like shower hadn't been cleaned for years. The room itself smelt mouldy and we couldn't use the aircon due to smell it was giving off. Who knows when it was last serviced. Our shower would only provide scalding hot water which actually burnt my hand. The maintenance people came and it took them nearly an hour to sort it out. I asked at reception to change rooms but they were unwilling to allow this. They were also very rude and didn't care. The maintenance people left dirty footprints in our bathroom and on the floor mat so I had to ask them to provide clean ones. The restaurant was Ok. They serve Chinese and Indian food not Sri Lankan which was disappointing although the restaurant staff were very nice and the breakfast was good. The hotel is not in a great location. So all in all I would not recommend staying here.
Although rooms are of decent size the decor and everything inside is old, stale and somewhat dirty. Dull flooring and inadequate lighting in the room provided a very claustrophobic feeling. I am glad we spent only a few hours in evening and had only 1 night stay. The saving grace was the food in the restaurant that had a set menu and was excellent for evening dinner and breakfast and would like to thank the staff for the food service.
