“An excellent Colombo hotel for business or pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

I have stayed in many Colombo hotels and this was by far the best so far. It is a lovely building in a peaceful spot. There is no liquor licence but we brought our own wine and they were happy to by more in on request for us. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful - the airport transfer was very efficient even when dealing with our flight delays. Our early check-in did not pose a problem and they were very responsive in all matters. The only issue I had was a difficulty getting hot water in the shower although they did offer to show me the knack. Highly recommended for business or pleasure.

Room Tip: The East room was very well situated and a good size.

As firm Royalists, we wanted to try this hotel as we heard that Prince Charles & Camilla stayed here on their last visit to Sri Lanka. This is a genuine boutique hotel experience and it is absolutely brilliant...make no mistake, this is an incredible hotel: beautifully decorated, great food, fabulous rooms with warm, caring and professional staff!!!

This is a gorgeous boutique hotel in a quiet spot of Colombo, but close enough to the action.

I want to start by saying that Rilwan who seems to run things went over and above what is required for someone at a hotel; what ever I say here cannot explain how amazing he was to us; from spending hours trying to organise a lost bag at a train station to be carried down from Hatton, to organising linen to be delivered from a shop, getting a cake made for my daughters birthday, organising some wine etc etc and all done with a smile and a no problem attitude. You are a star and made us love SriLanka and SriLankan's just that much more. the other staff were also lovely and attentive.

The hotel is gorgeous, we had a large family suit upstairs over looking the entrance; this is a beautiful room and highly recommended; there was a separate living area made up with two beds for the kids. An enormous amount of room and perfect for a family of 4.
The decorations throughout are gorgeous and the courtyard perfect for breakfast. The pool is in a tight area between the buildings but it was perfect for a swim with the kids in the afternoon; not really a place to sit and relax though.

The restaurant served excellent food, we felt it was better then their sister Cafe in town.

Finally if you love architecture you can see some amazing old houses in the streets around the Tintagel, it is well worth a walk or an early morning jog.

The Tintagel and entire Paradise Road franchise sets the standard in Sri Lanka. While I'm generally not a big fan of boutique hotels, the international luxury brands have yet to open for business in Colombo. As a result, I gave the Tintagel a try and was mostly satisfied with the experience.

The service at the Tintagel is what mostly justifies the relatively high price for Colombo. The tall doorman (I forget his name) was incredibly nice and helpful as were most of the other employees. The food served during dinner was also very good.

The NW room was fairly large and had nice decor. However, the room could have been lit better, the TV was only 24", the water pressure in the shower was very weak at times, some of the furniture had very visible water stains, and the locking mechanism on the door was a bit cumbersome as it required the use of the key when both entering and exiting. In addition, the breakfast included in the price of the room was inexplicably limited to only eggs and orange juice was only available for an extra charge. For the high price of the room, there should at least be a few options available and all juices should be included.

Despite the foregoing, I would still recommend staying at the Tintagel.

Stunning place to stay and amazing pool with loads of history. We stayed on our last night in Sri Lanka it was amazing, very romantic meal there in luxury surrounding. Would highly recommend for couples.

I cannot recommend this place enough. The staff were really helpful and the rooms are beautifully decorated to give the place a modern but colonial feel.

While most colombo hotels provide massive complexes of endless rooms that ride on a big flashy name, the Tintagel has just 10, plus a long pool and a lovely courtyard all with an understated , discreet sense of class. The location is also great, being tucked away in the exclusive suburb of Colombo 7.

The breakfasts are very generous compared to other places too, offering a cooked breakfast plus fruit platter, breads, juice, coffee and curd with treacle.

We also tried the SL curry and rice one evening which was REALLY good and well worth the price. Just remember to bring your own alcohol as they don't have a liquor licence.

Highly recommend!

Only thing I would advise against is the airport taxi (it's $70 through them but only 3000rp - about $25 directly with a cab firm such as Kangaroo or Budget).

The staff are so willing, friendly and almost anticipate your needs. It is so easy to get a tuk tuk to most places of interest. The hotel is so quiet and calm in such a busy city. The breakfasts were cooked to requirements and I can recommend the scrambled eggs. The hotel does not have a liquor licence, but you can order in any drinks and they will serve, if notice is given. We were in room 6, and this was slightly noisy due to a private function outside in the small garden area, but the function stopped at 9.30 pm. It has a small pool, very private, a well equipped gym and steam and massage room. These were not being used when we were there but all were available. Nice big beds, very good cooling system.
