Arrived in the middle of the night to rooms (colonial) which had leaking roofs and dirt in the bathroom. Finally got switched room after refusing to not pay extra, these rooms were much better. Say on the side of the hotel where reception is. Pool area gets taken up by outside guests so go out early to get a sun...

A little heaven on earth. This hotel is a destination all it's own. As soon as you pull up to the stately entrance you know your in for a treat. The history and charm of the mansion turned hotel is a wonderful adventure at every turn. The rooms are clean and well maintained with a private terrace and a gorgeous...

I had the best room of the entire tour. The whole hotel which was I believe a former Governers home. It exuded opulence and a time gone by where people were number one priorities. The staff could not do enough for you. After leaving my beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the sea where big soothing waves rolled in and...

But what we get was a booking in the Relax on Hotel, which is horrible. The bathrooms smells like a dirty drain. The House is dirty and the price is very high for that what...

Very enjoyable experience.Hotel is old & 4-Star.Being upgraded by now completed. Food was excellent.Service & Staff were 5 Star. A little isolated from the hustle & bustle of the city,but that makes it quiet & peaceful. Peaceful & a nice beach to relax & chill out.

The Mount Lavinia Hotel was an out of this world experience for me and my wife. Just a day before we were to depart for Karachi, we rang up the hotel (while we were still at Kandy) and got a room tentatively booked. When we reached the hotel, everything fascinated us. The location, the architecture, the colonial atmosphere, the porters...

A colonial style & times hotel offering a trip back to style and service. Situated right on the same name beach - one of the best on the city, still in a close proximity to city center. Taxi ride comes for less than 1000 Rs. Brings high added value and class to your Colombo experience.

I loved this place despite the dated rooms. They were nevertheless, clean and very comfortable. The hotel is based around the old Governor's mansion and the location on the beach is stunning. I spent a lot of time on the balcony watching the waves rolling in. The service was excellent and the atmosphere in the hotel congenial and relaxed. The...
