This was my first trip to Sri Lanka. I went there as my Sri Lankan friend Samal was getting married . His reception was at the KIngsbury. The hotel has a grand appearance from outside and is equally splendid inside. The staff is polite and charming. The food was simply fantastic and it was fit for a King.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

One of the best Hotels in Sri Lanka. The service of the staff is awesome. The hotel is well maintained. Nice swimming pool. The rooms are well prepared. There are plenty of choices at the buffet. Each room has either sea view, harbour view or city view.

It must be the best hotel in Colombo.Nice rooms,excellent quality and variety of food and a very good service.Pity that the waterfront that used as we were told to be a few yards away from the hotel and the swimming pool is now been replaced by a beach extension with ugly construction works by Chinese companies for future reference.

Going to a new place always has it's tricky side, especially if you're just winging it. Are the prices relative, will the taxi driver try to rip me off, do they accept ZAR or do they speak English? Let me put you at ease... Sri Lanka was really sublime! Well educated country that was super clean and really friendly!! We...

A great night out with friends in an amazing location with views across the city. It's a wonderful place with great music and a great atmosphere. If you want a party atmosphere with friends or an intimate evening as a couple, it's great for everyone. I love the place!!
