Although we only stayed in this hotel overnight, it was an amazing place. It is in the Cinnamon Gardens District which is the very wealthy area of Columbo. It has been open ony a few years and was the former home of the first woman prime minister. It is magnificently decorated and we had a huge room, "The North Room" no numbers here, overlooking a wonderful lap pool in the courtyard below. The terrace where we had dinner was lovely and the food absolutely great. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom exceptionally well equipped. It was very relaxing and we had a leisurely breakfast next morning. Unfortunately when we stayed there the hotel did not have a liquor license, but the home brewed ginger beer more than made up for it.

We really enjoyed the Paradise Road Tintagel. A beautiful property in a quiet setting in a charming part of Colombo, it had an excellent and attentive staff, excellent food, and spacious and well-appointed rooms. I particularly like the building's connection to Sri Lankan history, and the fact the interior had been designed by one of Sri Lanka's greatest designer/architects. Highly recommended.

I stayed at the hotel on business. The staff were a bit abrupt but the hotel facilities were acceptable for the price and the food good.
I had an awful experience on the last day. I asked the hotel to recommend a taxi firm and they said they would be book a reliable and safe one for me. The taxi was expensive but as travelling alone I thought it was worth it. The driver was highly inappropriate and propositioned me repeatedly, stopping the car and trying to force me to take his number and refusing to take me to my destination. I reported the incident to the hotel when I managed to make my way to my destination and was told the manager would look into it. I received no further contact so chased it up. It was quite clear that he felt this was not an issue at all and the service and response I received was not acceptable.

We stayed at the Tintagel as the first stop on our Sri Lankan holiday. Knowing that Prince Charles had taken over the property a few months earlier told us that the quality would be good. The property is lovely and the service first class. The rooms do vary and my initial impression of our room was that it was small and a bit dark. Reception did offer to move us to another room the next day but as we were only there two nights the disruption did not seem worth it. My suggestion is if you are particular about your room then go for a Suite.

The food was very good and as we were so tired our first night we opted for room service. The choice was good, the service excellent and the food delicious. We enjoyed breakfast very much in the courtyard area but found the service varied between the two days - the first day being better than the second.

The reception staff were excellent - always available with helpful suggestions and a welcoming smile.

The only thing I would have liked different was a better pool area. It is small a not conducive for sunbathing - there is just not enough room or sunlight. I do like a nice hotel pool but then you have to remember that this is an upmarket boutique hotel and the majority of their guests are not going to be there for sunbathing.

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.
