We didn't love Colombo - found it chaotic and dirty and lacking the architectural splendour and 'buzz' of cities such as Bangkok or Delhi - but the Tintagel was a calm refuge. Beautiful old colonial house with grand (albeit rather dark) bedrooms and delicious food. Service is on the whole charming and efficient, although on our last morning we had... More

The peace that comes over you after entering the premises of Tintagel is just amazing! In the midle of a busy and polluted city you find Tintagel calmly resting itself in the shadow of big green trees. Already at the gate you start to feel relaxed and it only gets better. Charming rooms, super service and exelent food. No alcohol... More

Nothing prepared me for the hidden splendour of this small boutique hotel. We arrived early in the morning and were welcomed with graciousness, before being led to our room, which turned out to be a suite with balcony. The best curry I ate in Sri Lanka was at their restaurant where I had the cashew curry, fantastic. My husband had... More

We stayed 2 night at Tintagel.The suite are very big, nice bed and nice decor. The hotel is great location, and u can walk around and find many shoppings. Our main issue the service wasn't that great and the food at restaurant was average. The breakfast its good.The hotel also have a pool.

Calm and understated with attention to detail and great staff. The best sleep we got in Sri Lanka in two weeks. Great urban pool and terrace too!

The hotel has a unique charm as it's small and boutique like. The rooms are done up in a smart, contemporary style with lots of black and stripes, and fairly spacious bathrooms, also done up in a minimal contemporary style. However, the rooms showed their age, with several niggling bits, creaking beds, fans with no regulators, and spotty upholstery. Our... More

I want to start off by saying that I’ve been meaning to join the tripadvisor community for a while now, as I find other reviews incredibly helpful when planning to travel. It took the experience of this hotel to finally push me into action, and this is my first review Skip to the bottom paragraph for the nutshell version. I... More

Located in the 'nice' district of Colombo 7 that is lined with charming trees and conserved colonial houses, Tintagel is not a disappointment as it is housed in the old residence of the ex-President. Boutique with limited rooms, the Tintagel is a cool respite from the Sri Lankan heat. However, it is obvious that the house is old and needs... More
