10/10 Exceptional

1. The bed and shower was clean (very important for us). 2. The room and the balcony was very comfortable with enough space for my wife and myself. 3. The staff in the front desk were very nice and polite. 4. The property is right next to a supermarket and 5 min walk from the beach.

I would recommend
Refresh is a nice place with nice staff. I imagine the loud train horn through the night won’t just affect this hotel on the stretch as the track follows the coast. Certainly not the hotels fault in any case. Thumbs up

10/10 Exceptional

Excellent hotel
The apartment concept at the hotel was fantastic with so much space to relax, dine and sleep. The hotel restaurant across the road delighted us with first class food including lobsters and crab dining along the beach line. This was a superb experience. They organised a safari to the Yala safari park with accommodation in cabanas, transport in a luxury minibus and meals for very reasonable price. The beach is only few minutes walk across the main road and we throughly enjoyed the boat ride with a glass to see a myriad of fish. Hotel is located in a fantastic seaside location and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a seaside break. We walked freely around 10.30-11.00 pm and safety and security were great both at night and day. We will book the Refresh Hotel again.

4/10 Fair

This property may be suitable for some, but for me it was unpleasant. The room was very very dirty, windows sills caked in dust. Shower curtain had a complete purple discolouration, covered in mould. Rotting on the walls. Huge balcony and no chairs.

6/10 Good

The building is very run down, the pool is dirty and uninviting. We had hot water only half of our stay. Everything feels old and like it needs a good scrub. The staff are friendly, always say hello and will look into things if you raise an issue. The wifi is good. The aircon is good. The rooms are spacious. The pproximity to the beach is good, though it is about 10 minutes walking to get to the beach unless you walk through a restaurant. Compared to other Sri Lankan accommodation, we don’t feel this hotel offers good value for money.

We stayed at the Refresh Hotel for a week in August. The hotel is located just moments away from the beach, bars, shops and restaurants.The hotel room was spacious and clean and the staff were really friendly. The roof top pool is lovely.
