Checked into the Kingsbury after a disappointing stay at the Grand Cinnamon hotel Columbo
This hotel was the former Ceylon Continental and is now under a complete restoration bringing it to a true 5 star hotel
Only three or four top floors are open at the moment with the spa and pool shortly being completed.
The service, food and overall high levels of customer service were all exceptional
Don't over look this hotel it's ideal for business and when the leisure facilities are completed it will also make a superb tourist hotel
