Comfort, convenience and classy living in an architecturally notable house.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 Jan 2024via mobile
Mount Lodge is a 3BR house, built on 3 levels, with each BR getting its own bath, garden, and each floor with an indoor/outdoor living space- so it’s perfect for 6 people. The location is perfect - a 5 min walk to the beach, and a 2 min walk to Mount Lavinia Hotel. Best of all the house comes with a very sweet caretaker couple - they took care of all our needs - cooking, cleaning, tons of laundry, it was the best thing about our stay. We would absolutely stay there again.
Date of stay: December 2023
Room Tip: Go to Mt Lavinia Hotel for breakfast, and eat egg hoppers on the pool terrace!
Trip type: Travelled with family

Wonderful place to stay. The rooms are very clean and has a beautiful balcony too. Benjamin, the host, ensures everything is well taken care of before check in. Padmini and Gamini who live on property are very kind to cater to your needs. Plus points for a sweet cat and the sweetest dog they have on property.

We stayed one night in Mount Lodge and would return! Airy and peaceful bedroom (AirCon) with a view in a small green patio, a lovely housekeeper couple who prepared a tasteful breakfast. Be prepared to travel 30min either by train (5min walk fm hotel) or TukTuk / Uber to city center.

We stayed 2 nights at mount lodge. It was probably the best accomodation we had in our 3 weeks vacation. The host and his wife are beyond friendly. The breakfast was very good (toast with egg, fruits, jam, butter, tea, water..)
The room was well furnished and the bed is very comfortable. As mentioned before the bathroom is outside the bedroom but thats no problem. There are only 3 other rooms in the house. So its quite and peaceful. The architecture is awesome! Very open and clean.
We loved it!

Dear Catischi,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our Mount Lodge Boutique Hotel. We are delighted you enjoyed the stay and particularly the service from our hosts and the architecture of the home which is rather special. The property was designed by Christopher Anjalendran (a Geoffrey Bawa contemporary) and has great ability in designing unqiue spaces of light and airflow on smaller plots of land. Mount Lodge is one of our favorite Anjalendran designs and we are so pleased to be able to share this with our guests. Thanks and we hope to welcome you back to Sri Lanka again soon.

Mount Lodge is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Columbo and set in a quiet residential are and only minutes from the city beach.
We were greeted by the most delightful housekeeper couple I have ever encountered - Gamini and Padmini - just looking at them brings a smile!
Nothing was too much trouble from organising transport, offering advice on local attractions and ensuring every whim was met.

The hotel entrance belies the beauty within. Renovated with imagination and flair the rooms and outdoor spaces are full of exquisite decorative details chosen with discerning guests in mind.
It is a small but perfect hotel serving traditional egg hopper breakfasts - although Gamini and Padmini offered just about anything we asked for.
Beds were very comfortable and linen of high quality with good sized bathrooms and homely touches.

Dear Kimm,

Lovely to read your review for our Mount Lodge in Mount Lavinia and thanks for taking the time to share your experience.

We are so pleased you enjoyed the stay and very happy about your special mention of the Egg Hoppers served at Mount Lodge. We truly believe Padmini is the Queen of the Hopper any many guests return again and again to enjoy the food from her Kitchen.

Hoping we will see you again back in Sri Lanka and we would love the opportunity to Welcome you back to Mount Lodge.

Best Wishes,
