At the end of our wildlife safari trip we were booked into this hotel for one night prior to going on to the Maldives. A typical International Hotel, a little impersonal with lots of space in the surrounding reception lounge areas. Decoratively good, air conditioning and welcoming staff. The room was nothing exceptional no more than you would expect in... More

It's nice to be back in Colombo, lots of changes and hardly recognize the place. We arrived pretty late in the evening at the hotel, but the checked-in was pretty fast. Staff at the reception was really good plus we were served with their welcome drinks! This is my first time to stay here but not with my husband, he... More

Nice to return to the Cinnamon Lakeside for a short stay. Excellent customer service at reception, with early check in and late check out generously provided. Room spacious, comfortable and spotless. Buffet breakfast disappointing as we arrived towards the end and much of the food had run out, plus poor attention from waiting staff. The outdoor area is very appealing.... More

The hotel was very nice, and the service was excellent with the exception of the wifi which didn't seem to work well with Apple products. If the iPad was connected, then the laptop wouldn't. The room was nice, hotel service and quality was exceptional. The wifi would not prevent me from staying there again, as family enjoyed the stay. Breakfast... More

Having tried the High Teas in the major hotels in Colombo, I would rate this #1. The sheer variety of food that is offered alone would distinguish it from the others. The food was excellent and the ice coffee divine. (included in the price, unlike at some other hotels). The service is superb and the seating was comfortable. Great value... More

As I have mentioned before, this Hotel is simply amazing. Though I used to frequent very often, it has been over a year since my last visit. Many new faces as I entered, but surprisingly the service is too notch as usual. They didn't have to know you to be nice... They simply warmly welcome everyone... Which is truly nice... More
