“A Gem in the City!”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

We stayed only one night but we received the best service from the whole staff and management. It was my first time to Sri Lanka and Gladwin, the manager, helped me to plan the whole trip including recommending a driver through email months before our trip. By the time we met, it was like I've known him already. Senneka, the assistant manager, even helped us to make an appointment with a dentist in the nearby hospital to alleviate my husband's toothache before we set off to Sigiriya. The place is tastefully designed and well maintained. It is simply a gem in the city!

Tucked away just of the main streets of the south of the city, you walk through a half-hidden doorway and into another world – peaceful, secluded and intimate. The quality of the service is just wonderful, and nothing is too much trouble. The Villa itself is an architectural gem – the very best of 70's (I'm guessing) funkiness – and the atmosphere is relaxed and informal. Outstanding.

It is a 6-bedroom villa in the heart of the town. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable, tastefully made. Though the best part is the service. We arrived very late in the night, but they reopened the kitchen and offered us dinner. We were a big group of 4 couples with infants and kids, and during the entire stay, the food was made to order. They have a nice little pool and a small garden with seating. Gladwin, property manager, was always available when needed and made our stay pretty memorable.

Room Tip: Room number 1 on the ground floor opens directly to the main pool. Room 3 on first floor is much big...

A small hotel in the south of the city, but still handy to everything you might want to see and do in Colombo. The team at the hotel were really friendly, helping with suggestions of things to see and do as well as restaurants. Great pool, nice rooms, friendly staff. Make it your city hideaway!

We arrived here after a long days travelling from London.
This small hotel offers peace, a good, comfortable room and bathroom. All properly equipped.
The breakfast was good, both European and Sri Lankan. The staff are very helpful and friendly,
We slept very well for the 2 nights we stayed it is quiet here at night. The small pool and patio areas are excellent. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: The two rooms we saw looked excellent.

We were a group of 5 and this was the first hotel we were booked at for our trip to SL. It is a house renovated as a hotel. The rooms were clean, beds were massive and extremely comfortable. One of our rooms opened to the pool and it was the highlight of our stay there. we had a great time at d pool. The bathrooms were clean. The staff were extremely helpful and provided us info on where to go to eat, club etc. The food was decent. Will definitely recommend!

Everything about our stay at Ceilao Villas was fantastic.
The room was very spacious and modern, with a lovely bathroom and extremely comfortable beds.
We didn't use the pool during our stay but the grounds outside are well maintained and very pleasant to relax in.
The food was delicious. On our second night we chose to have dinner there and it was great - we fell in love with Sri Lankan cuisine there and then.
But the best thing about Ceilao Villas is all the staff there. They were so helpful and accommodating literally on hand for anything we might need and always with a big smile.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ceilao Villas to anyone.
