I stayed at the Highbury last month as part of a massive group of students from Australia. Manoji and her family showed us boundless hospitality and generosity and catered to all of our needs, and there were certainly many. In addition to the hospitality, the rooms were all beautiful and spacious, comfortable and clean. As for the food, I don't... More

The location was on a lovely street close to town and Tuk Tuks and yet felt safe and private.The house was charming, both beautifully styled and designed. Our room was huge, clean and airy. We enjoyed lovely breakfasts and the company of cat... More

Never have we stayed in a place where we were instantly part of the family. This is not only a beautifully designed home that simply flows from an architectural perspective it is a family home that guests have the privilege to share. For us it was a last minute booking and when we arrived the owners where on holiday leaving... More

The house itself felt cooled and open even amidst the humidity and heat of Colombo. The rooms were well lit well designed. I should know, I'm an architecture student The hosts went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Thanks mannoji :)

We came as part of a large group of architects from Australia and were accommodated in the most gracious way possible. We all felt instantly at home and nothing was too much to ask from the owners. You won't get better home cooked Sri Lankan breakfasts anywhere! The rooms are light, clean and spacious. We often wanted to abandon our... More

Myself and the kids stayed here while in Colombo. We had booked a smaller room but Manoji upgraded us to a bigger room as we were 3 of us. She knew quite a bit about Colombo specially the tourist destinations and guided us well. Breakfast was good nothing to rave about but not bad either. Very centrally located and easy... More

The Highbury Colombo was the first place my friend and I stayed in Sri Lanka, and it was a great first impression! I would describe the setup as half boutique hotel, half homestay - there's only a few rooms and the owners live there too (and their lovely cat!), but it's all beautifully decorated and professionally run. The owners were... More

When we arrived to a hotel which we booked and prepaid, there was some kind of a problem so we finished at Highbury as they arranged for us this alternative accommodation. And finally we were happy about that change as this place is very nice, stylish and comfortable. Don't know price per night as our place cost us 50 USD.... More
