    Good Experience

    A stay in historic walls is always an experience. At one or the other place the charm leafs a bit, but you forgive. The rooms are high quality British colonial and well maintained, the junior suites offer plenty of space. Avoid rooms facing the center road due to the street noise. With the service one can experience the entire range from very attentive to ignorant unfriendly. The Verandah restaurant offers a good breakfast and the a la carte lunch is good; You should not miss a sundowner in the bar. The treatments in the spa are recommended, the pool is unfortunately due to the location on the cliff too few beach chairs.

    Great Experience!

    I was remaining within the head suite and it was very a bigger room with better than average measure (twofold) twin beds. It was essentially a an arrangement sort. I preferred the lavatory especially,quite huge and shinning and exceptionally valuable for women. Moreover I preferred the way they isolated the toilet. My room was perfect with sea sees. The lodging was initially built by four British entrepreneurs in 1864, you wish at slightest a half day to investigate the lodging momentous history shown within the library. I was inspired by all of staff with their polished skill and they are exceptionally accommodating and amazingly neighborly. Morning buffet is astonishing with the assortment and quality, extraordinary way to begin the morning. I will be certainly remaining here once more certainly.

    Good Place!

    This hotel is an oasis of calm in Colombo. The spa is outstanding. All staff were really friendly and helpful and we were particularly impressed with the smiley gentleman. The rooms are nice and well appointed. And a proper size pool too. Lots of places to relax and variety of food on offer. Buffet breakfast was great as was dinner. A must visit if you are in Colombo to see the lovely Colonial building. All in all, would recommend it.
