It all starts at the top with the owners - a nice married couple that lives on the premises. Not only are they service oriented, they go the extra mile to make sure that your stay is nothing less than excellent. I found myself having nice conversations with them, sharing life experiences, and even being given a few beers to... More

Welcoming and friendly staff on arrival. Rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable. Plenty of parking available outside room. Located close to the city and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be recommending Colombo Motel to our friends.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. They had great advice on where to eat. Was within walking distance to a great Thai restaurant and the café on the corner did a beautiful breakfast. Room was very warm and clean. Ticked all the boxes.

Welcoming owners, very helpful and accommodating. Lovely clean, modern and well appointed rooms. Quite close to the CBD and some restaurants and cafes can also be found in the immediate area. I'll definitely be back!

This is a good, reasonably priced motel walking distance from the city centre. What distinguishes it, though, is a really nice guy running it. He gave us excellent advice on places to see and where to eat, along with a free map. The rooms are fine, the wifi works, and the place is clean. You can do a lot worse... More

Our studio was well laid out with kitchen and dining areas , all in a modern decor and beautifully presented amazing value for money We will come again!

Booked this accommodation after rave reviews on trip advisor. The woman at reception was adamant I had booked a twin room, when I hadn't ticked any box as there wasn't one to my knowledge. She provided a Queen bedded room, after some discussion.. Not particularly welcoming, heater seemed to be not functioning properly, never really warm enough.

We spent a wonderful week at Columbo in the City. The central location was excellent for exploring the city, on foot or by car. The motel was unbelievably quiet, clean and well serviced every day. Highly recommended.
