Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Did not book this but ended up here as the Canes boutique was full, even though I had booked. Basic room , breakfast basic and boring, bed uncomfortable. Not near anything of interest, not close to restaurants. Would not return .

Fine (ish). Clean and somewhere to sleep. Facilities and amenities very basic (eg no tea and coffee making equipment, toiletries and one towel only per person) and there is no housekeeping which meant the bathroom got grimy with my dirty feet very quickly after walking round Colombo. The lack of housekeeping also meant I had to dig out the emergency loo roll! Wifi worked intermittently and often not at all on our second floor room, which was frustrating. Lots of plug sockets which was welcome but no lift if you have mobility problems. We had a room at the front of the building which means the main road was ever present, but relatively quiet at night when we wanted to sleep. A little bit out of the way but not difficult to get around given three-wheelers. Breakfast was extremely limited to toast and omelette put in front of you and coffee. For the price I was paying I expect a choice, even if small. On the plus point the service was extremely friendly and the people nice. I think the space, airiness and location of Havelock Residences means it has great potential but the owners need to decide who their market is and work towards that. If it's budget backpackers, or people willing to pay a little bit more for a basic but clean room with associated facilities. At the moment it falls somewhere between and doesn't hit the mark for either. Overall for the price we paid I was glad I was only here for two nights. The thought crossed my kind to move after the first night, but they were so sweet at breakfast I felt bad and didn't. And the staff are the reason I have judged Havelock Residences as average rather than poor......

This is a converted house, situated in a quiet residential area, with about four rooms on each of two floors. The room was fairly comfortable, with TV and air-conditioning. The balcony looks on to the next road. The toilet did not have provision for keeping shampoo or soap in the shower area. Toiletries are not supplied. Breakfast is limited to bread/butter/jam or string-hoppers/dosas/parotas. No wi-fi facility and incoming calls cannot be transferred to the rooms. The room is not cleaned on a daily basis but the hotel is otherwise well maintained. For the amenities provided, I thought the charge was rather high. I was informed that a major renovation is on the cards. On the plus side, there is no noise from the traffic. A bus-stop is a ten minute walk away and there are trishaws available in the vicinity. It is about two kilometers from the arterial Galle Road. Staff were friendly and helpful and you can get by with English.

The rooms were clean but very basic. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the airport transfer was only around £12 so can't complain! I saw that some reviewers found this place noisy but I didn't think it was even though it is on the main Havelock Road. It's only a 10 minute walk to the main area of 'Havelock Town' which has some nice restaurants.

Dont make a mistake with Havelock Bungalows. This place is different, located on the noisy dusty road. A bit distant from the central part of Colombo and from main attractions. Rooms are new and ok, staff are friendly and helpful. But still a bit overpriced. Breakfast was very simple.

We had a wonderful time at the Havelock Bungalow. We stayed 3 nights there with our 2y old daughter and the staff made our stay smooth and easy. The view from the terrace is absolutely amazing and it is not far from the city center. The staff are very warm and friendly and always happy to provide information.
