The Hotel Deephani, Negombo

Location - On the beach in Negombo, just a 20 minute tuk tuk taxi ride to or from the airport. The hotel is well signed from Lewis Place, the main road leading along the Negombo beach area. The hotel can arrange a tuk tuk to the airport, or a pick up for a cheap price, about £3 each way for a tuk tuk or double that for a car. Or, to pay an even cheaper price, just walk onto Lewis place and engage any of the tuk tuk drivers you’ll find…

The Room - The room was fine, very comfortable, with air con and a fan, a decent view over pool and beach, and a TV with a huge array of satellite…

The Club Hotel Dolphin, Waikkal

Location - The Club Hotel Dolphin is on the beach-front in the village of Waikkal, which is about 12kms north of Negombo, and less than an hour by bus or car if you are coming from the international airport. There’s not much else near the hotel,…

The Taj Airport Garden Gateway Hotel, Seeduwa

Radisson, Porto Alegre, Brazil

Location – My first impression was that hotel was located high up geographically within the Bela Vista part of the city. An area that commands good views right across the city. Upon arrival by taxi from the airport which was approximately 30 mins we were greeted by the porter who took our bags and led us to reception for check-in. Check in/Reception – The reception desk is placed in the huge central atrium and was attended by a couple of staff. The Hotel was previously called the Blue Towers until…

The Brehon Hotel, Killarney, Ireland

We stayed at the Brehon whilst we were in Killarney for the Helly Hansen Killarney Adventure Race. Usually we stay for 3 nights at hotels we review but although we only stayed here for 2 nights we thought it worth a quick mention as its going to be somewhere you may look at staying if you’re in town for the race. It was brilliantly located for the event, a 5 minute walk from the expo and registration centre, and the finish line. The weekend was very busy so I didn’t…

Kamlesh Travels & Mewar International Travel Agency, Udaipur, India

Udaipur is an overnight train ride from Delhi, so if you happen to be in Delhi for the half marathon, it’s worth taking a few days out to visit this city. It’s quite interesting and has a nice lake to relax by. The famous guide books recommend using Kamlesh Travels and Mewar International Travel Agency. Don’t do it. Here’s why. We brought our bus ticket from Mewar International, recommended by our Rough Guide. ‘Is it a 2 x 2 bus,’ I asked, meaning, are their just 2 seats on either side of the…
