We booked our last night here in Colombo to splash out and end on a high note. This hotel definitely delivered - you couldn't ask for more from this place: - Comfortable rooms with sunset views - Brilliant pool area with friendly service and a quiet, chilled atmosphere - Very helpful staff I just wish I had more time to...

Beautiful Mount Lavinia House is close to the beach in Mount Lavinia, far enough away from Colombo to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, but near enough for a fun tuk tuk ride along Marine Drive and Galle Face Green into the metropolis. The house is architecturally designed in the colonial style, built around a central atrium. Downstairs...

I would stay again tomorrow if I could. Such a haven of quiet in beautiful surroundings. I cannot echo enough the more positive reviews of the place. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and beds comfortable. Breakfast was basic but fine for us and adequate. We did not arrange to eat in there in the evening...

After a hectic month touring Sri Lanka this was a disappointing end to our stay. The room was large but leaked copious amounts of rain water through the roof and under the doors. The balcony was slimy and flooded, my husband ended up cleaning the water outlets! Train noise quite unbearable after 6am. The hotel was deserted in the night...

Go back in time to the beginning of the 20th century under British Rule. Just far enough from downtown Colombo, but close enough for a short Tuk Tuk Ride. The pool is beautiful overlooking the Ocean. The breakfast buffet is enormous from Western to Sri Lanka dishes! Several wonderful restaurants just outside the compound. Suggest you talk to the local...

My wife and I have recently returned from our second stay at this truly wonderful hotel and have now booked to return for a few days over New Year! We were this time in the adjacent apartments which were spacious and well equipped. The welcome was warm and genuine, the breakfasts lovely and dinner in the beachside restaurant was outstanding!...

I stayed at Mount Lavinia House for 5 days in October and enjoyed the stay very much. The staff were welcoming and were very happy to prepare drinks and food, or its a very short walk to the beach and a great restaurant if you prefer - you have to try the battered prawns! The house is very stylish with...

Me and my mum stayed here the first week of September, and upon walking in our first words were WOW! The house itself is beautiful inside and out and has been decorated tastefully highlighting the Sri Lankan art and cultures. The pool stretches from inside the main room downstairs out into the beautiful walled garden, allowing you to escape inside...

Stayed 1 night instead of 2. We were in the house next to the main house, which felt very strange, especially since there were no other people staying throughout the hotel and the pool (looked unclean) and games (great!) were in the main house. The hotel has lovely furnishing, and the two rooms were actually a 2-bedroom apartment (convenient) but...
